But you do understand the amendment was intended to PROHIBIT legislators, forever, from recognizing gay marriage. And yes, in California at that time civil unions were legal, but the reason 40 million was poured into that referendum was because it was believed then that it had national implications. And in my state, civil unions aren't legal, like most states.Gay rights activists always get it wrong (intentionally). Does anyone strip or prevent gays from entering into a legal union? No. Can this union have all the rights and responsibilities of marriage? Yes, with legislation. WHAT THE HECK ARE GAYS COMPLAINING ABOUT? That gay relationships aren't considered on the same vein as hetro relationships? Well.. they aren't the same.
BTW, the last bit just gives you away. You don't want them to have the same marriage rights, and so support the position the CEO took, and therefore object to the outrage/protests based on what was being protested. That's fine, but don't pretend that something else is at work.

of course that doesn't stop them from doing the same thing.
you would see a dozen of lawsuits if the name of these protesters got released and they were fired for damaging their companies interest.
maybe that is what should happen though. these protestors have damaged their companies reputation so they should be fired as well.
if they want to act like we are in north korea then we can treat them like we live in north korea.
by protesting the way that they did they damaged the image of their company and their companies values. they should be fired for that or do you not agree?
i mean if you want to thought police then lets thought police.
Just read your last paragraph. You couldn't be further from the truth. Isn't that called a straw man argument, hum?
The CEO is the face of the company. That's part of why they get the big bucks. When the face of the company holds public views contrary to key demographics related to his business, and wants to enforce those views on others through a constitutional amendment, he should probably expect some backlash.
