    Saying that he's "evolved" on the issue would have diffused the situation instantaneously. He's stood his ground, and good for him, but when one stands by their principles one must be prepared to also face certain consequences.

    It's generally bad business to align yourself against marriage equality these days.
    So what? I believe marriage is only between a man and a woman. Maybe you don't. Maybe some COE's do and some don't. I don't think that the ones that disagree with me should be forced out of their jobs. These people need to learn tolerance, instead of their militant, shove their opinion down your throat strategy. They need to respect the views of others, and need to respect the freedoms we all should enjoy, not just those that want to destroy other opinions.

    the more businesses stand up and people stand up to them the less rail roading they will do.

    the problem is just encourages them and their behavior.
    sure trying to stifle and or punish someone for speaking their personal opinion is a clear violation of the 1st amendment.

    we are not a thought police state the last time i checked.
    No part of this violates the first amendment. The government cannot punish him for that speech.

    How do you think this works? If your business does something I disagree with, I'm required to purchase your products anyway or else I'm violating your first amendment rights? Or do I have the right to take my business elsewhere?

    And if enough people take their business elsewhere, does your business have the right to fire you for costing them that business? Or is the business forced to keep employing you so as to not violate your first amendment rights?

    Oh, isn't that ever so tolerant.
    At its most basic, it shows that bigotry does have consequences.

    Are any of us spared the consequences of our actions? I guess sometimes, but sometimes...nope.

    Same questions to you, from post #314.

    Yes, I understand. And the world is still searching for Nazi guards.

    I don't see those historical issues as being equivalent to the issue here.

    Where does the line get drawn? Why not look at political party donations as a qualifier? How about religious beliefs?

    The fact is, this matter, and the desire for revenge that is being exposed by it, is setting a precedent that is very dangerous.

    Would you say the same if he had contributed to the KKK?

    Is this CEOs leaving only offensive to you because you also share his beliefs that gays dont deserve equal civil rights?

    Imagine, if you will, there was popular support for conservatives not being allowed to be married due to some people's moral disagreement some aspect of their lives. However, to you, being conservative (I assume) is a fundamental part of who you are (if not, then hypothetically).

    How far would you be willing to go so you could live in peace?
