I don't have to investiage every share holder, but when I am aware that they are trying to take away my rights I will certainly try not to do business with them. And you, who feels, apparently that gay people should just take it and allow people to trample on our civil rights accuses me of being lazy? I don't have to do business with people who try to deny me civil rights--if you don't care about other people's civil rights you go on ahead and do exactly what you're doing. If you get really offended at being called a bigot--you know what? There are worse things--like not being able to visit loved ones in the hospital. Like being denied equal protection of the law. You may not see this as an issue but that's only because you are privileged and entitled in this country. I hope your rights are never infringed on and I hope that if they are no one tells you that you're lazy.

What is it exactly that you think I should be getting about the other side? They want to prevent me from having equal rights. My being able to marry my partner of 15 years will not impact their lives in any way--and yet, they want to prevent me from doing it. What exactly do you think I am missing?

See below--you're confusing "hate" with "anger".

Eats at Chik-fil-A claiming to support free speech. The money he spent at Chik-fil-A claiming to support free speech is then donated to anti-gay groups who are working to prevent gay people from achieving equal rights. Being called a bigot is nothing compared with being a second class citizen. "LGBT friends, but has friends who happen to be LGBT (there's a difference." A nonsensical statement. Go ask your friends who "happen to be LGBT" if they see this great difference. Ask if they're okay with you eating at Chik-fil-a and having that money be donated to NOM. You live in a real world and your actions do effect your friends who "happen to be LGBT."

I think you're confusing hate and anger. When people prevent you from having equal civil rights anger is a perfectly reasonable response. When people who claim to be in favor of gay marriage go to a protest in which the proceeds will be donated to groups that fight gay marriage anger is perfectly reasonable. It's a false equivalency to compare people who are saying that I am sick or diseased and so shouldn't have the same rigths as everyone else to me calling people bigots because they are trying to prevent me from having those same rights. I'm still not sure you get it and maybe you never will--but you need to realize that it's not the same.

Personally, I think it's a false equivalency. Cathy is working to prevent me and others like me from getting the same rights as heterosexuals in this country. He was not stopped from saying what he wanted to say--he continues to do so and now with even more money from all the people who ate chicken on that day. No one infringed on his freedom of speech--even those mayors didn't actually do anything to prevent him from doing business in those cities. Preventing people from having equal rights is not the same as calling someone a bigot for espousing bigoted principals.

Thank you for this. It really sums up so much I have had trouble expressing.
