So, long story short, for about the past 6 years, I have supported the right of anyone to "marry" anyone they wish...But, apparently the bar now seems to be not only support, but I must shout it from the rooftops to be believed. I just don't care about it that much....However, your assumption is wrong. And to avoid looking foolish in the future, I would suggest that you hold off on assuming things about people you don't even know.
    Interesting, as I feel the same way you do. I'm fine with any consenting adults having the chance to marry whomever they choose. I resent the concept that I'm supposed to make it my number one cause in order to be believed, and I'm also supposed to expect everyone who doesn't share my view to have to publicly denounce their own views for....some reason, I don't know what it is.

    People who see "conservative" in my disclosed leaning in my user panel see it and automatically assume I'm anti-gay.

    That just makes no sense in the context of this discussion. Prop 8 was a constitutional amendment. And gays have pursued their efforts entirely legally, unless I missed when Dictator Rainbow unilaterally changed the laws in California or elsewhere (morally is subjective).

    But since you don't approve of using the courts to affect legislation, I expect you opposed the filing of lawsuits seeking to overturn Obamacare? I'm sure that was an illegitimate effort to get a handful of people in black robes to enforce their will to repeal Obamacare on everyone else, like it or not. Right?

    Oh, that's right. Only "the left" puts pressure on companies to divorce themselves from politically contentious people or organizations.
    Looked at the first link and that was about a company who didn't want to print Gay T-Shirts. The organized Gay response was just more of the same.

    So now that this is all over, and Eich is no longer CEO, is the issue closed, or is there something more the "Eich-is-a-bigot" folks are looking for?

    This fascism is truly more dangerous than any idea of Gay marriage, and will continue on long after whatever controversial subjects may arrive next.
    Yes, it's the fascism itself rather than this particular "fashion" that is dangerous to all of us.

    They'll never stop persecuting people they don't like.

    No, only stupid people disagree on what logic and reason say and they can be safely ignored.

    So, you don't think he changed his mind. You think he covered his true feelings, for decades, just to unleash a fraud upon the American people when the time was right.

    Protest does not hound a man from his work and destroy his livelihood to make a political point. That's something much uglier.
