I can understand personal discontent with an individual for their beliefs, and the message they perpetuate. Chic-Fil-A COO made comments against gay marriage and the gay community boycotted the company because of 1 individual's belief. I am assuming that there is no Anti gay employee policy or spit on a gay person's sandwich policy. It's just 1 man choosing to express his beliefs. I am 100% sure it happens the other way around, but I cannot yet find any public available article.
Since his personal views are public he will be under a microscope. I think that in itself is a great balance. The LGBT community will watch everything he does in the comic.
I do not support oppression of people(either a gay person or a straight person). I feel that someone should have the freedom of expressing their views without fear of being assaulted. Some people believe that homosexuality is against the laws of nature and some vice versa <-- that is their right.
As for Mr. Card's NOM activities, yes they don't physically assault people but they are lobbyist. The United States is a democratic country where the majority of people choose to vote for what they believe is right. If the Majority of people in California choose to not accept gay marriage, then democracy won. It might not be fair to homosexual community, but organize and do the same. But don't make someone go broke and homeless because their ideas are not inline with yours.
For the record, I am not concerned with who is Gay or not, what ever 1, 2 3, or 50 individuals chose to do to themselves in privacy and all members are willing, that is their own prerogative.
