    Gullible? You really don't think that they understood why they were contributing. I think that the SSM movement did a little jumping the shark here. You don't give death threats and bully some small business. You have the largest corporation in the world, Apple, on your side along with almost all businesses. Yet you feel the need to bully some Mom and Pop store.

    I remember back when all the LGBT community wanted was the right to marry whom they loved. Apparently not. They now want everyone to support them. And they have become the haters.

    The Left can't stand the fact that shops like Memories Pizza can stay in business and not cave to the homosexual agenda. They will say anything, do anything, tell any lie, make any threat to make sure such businesses are shut down. And they will call it tolerance

    Hyperbole much?

    What specific part or parts is hyperbole? Clearly there was strong condemnation and death threats made against a small business that did not discriminate in any way but rather simply answered a hypothetical question. Clearly many, or maybe some, in the LGBT crowd think that they are the tolerant ones, despite making death threats. Those in the LGBT crowd who went after Brendan Eich for making a contribution in 2008 to a group are intolerant. Clearly there have been law suits. Clearly other small business have been forced out of business.

    Outside of a "dedicated thread", which means discussion within a very small community, exactly what actual event has occurred? That's right. There has been no discriminatory event.

    Interesting you imply its just a small number so who cares.

    How many gay couples in Indiana would have gone to the pizzeria to cater their wedding? It would seem, according to the storm troops, if it were just one, it warrants complete personal and professional destruction.

    That fact speaks volumes.
    I'm simply pointing out to those who want to believe that this was a huge group of people speaking out to support bigotry that they number is actually quite small relative to the population. That is a fact that remains. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    Again, if numbers are the standard you want to apply, you've eliminated the whole argument against the Indiana legislation. Sorry to burst your bubble.

    The actual event that occurred was a law being created that allowed for the discrimination of gays. That's hardly "no discriminatory event" as much as you wish it to be so.

    Nice.
    No, and I'm not sure how you got that from my post. If you choose to be in a business then there are regulations you just have to follow (do you honestly believe antidiscrimination laws are the only condition of being able to keep a business?) However, nobody is forcing you to run a business.
