Wil, Thank you for the apology. I appreciate it. I, for one, did not stand in line for hours in 110+ degree heat for the sole reason that I didn't want to be told WHEN to protest, either by Mike Huckabee or the LGBT community. Chick-Fil-A has, for years, supported the charities that it supports and I wonder where the organized outrage was back then (maybe I missed it) and I also wonder why NOW. I'm glad that you decide to vote with your dollars regarding the charities that a business supports but I also hope that you take time and energy to investigate a business more deeply than just being told a company "supports hate". Do you know where Target sends their money? How about the manufacturers of Brawny paper towels. The folks that make little plastic toys in China? The hot dog vendor at the ball game? The guy with the taco cart? How about the folks running the garage sale down the street? If you learn of something that a business does that you don't agree with, by all means take your business somewhere else. But understand that just because that knowledge came to you easily (you were told of it by someone else) really doesn't remove the mantle of responsibility from you to learn the same of every place with which you do business. You have learned that Chick-Fil-A does not support same sex marriage. Do you now, therefore, boycott every businessman who gives money to a charity that does not support same sex marriage? If so, then I feel that you are bound to determine this first prior to doing business with anyone. Otherwise your outrage isn't applied fairly and is controlled soley based on what "outrage flavor of the moment" that others want to steer your emotions with. One should apply the same standard across the board or one teeters on the edge of hypocrisy (aka, being a dick)
