For the record, pro-gay rights people are right, but I've said for ages that the way they present their case is all wrong.
Personally I think Homosexuality is disgusting but I am very pro rights. The Government has no right interfering in our lives the way they do.
I understand protesting but I agree the GR Movement goes about it wrong.
The true price of liberty is putting up with other peoples freedom. But some of the GRM tactics go to far and are offensive to a lot of people like me who don't support what they are doing just their right to do it.
Same goes for Chic filet. They got a right to their point of view and face it in a free society a man who has a company should be able to run it by his beliefs including who he wants to employ.
Goes back to the same line of thought I often go down, I hate every thing the KKK stands for but would step up to defend their rights to say them as long as they don't cross the line and infringe some one elses rights. If we let the Government limit the free speech of some one else its only a short time before they are knocking at the door wanting to shut us up.
Boycotts often backfire and draw more support to the one being boycotted than more people to support the boycott.
Smartest thing to do is take it with a grain of salt and don't make a big deal out of it and you then marginalize them.
