“In America, I believe people have a right to do things that I might not agree with,” he continued. “What I don’t want to do is shut down the voices of Christians because they don’t like those voices.”

I may not approve but its none of my business because we live in a land where freedom of choice is the law!!! I hope we can all agree marriage is a contract a commitment  of two people!!!!!
 
Finally a sane voice.  Bravo Charles Anfield!
 
I didn't know all of that George Ito.  Is it possible to get some links I am interested thanks.
 
+Charles Anfield Exactly.  And Chick-fil-A will serve them all with the same friendly demeanor and respect they displayed yesterday.  Oh the hatred of these Chich-fil-A people!
 
So you prefer being anti-marriage, pro-abortion, anti-men, and far left wing.  That's your choice.  It doesn't mean you are a bigot or hateful, does it?
 
How is boycotting a restaurant because of it's bigotry "shutting down" their voice? It's called capitalism and free speech. I have the right not to buy their crappy food. NOM is delusional.

Or maybe they're... excuse me, we're upset that he's given millions of dollars to the FRC, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has certified as a hate group.
If McDonalds spent money to pass legislation making heterosexual activity illegal and suggested that heterosexuals should be deported, would you bite your tongue? Marriage is important to me, but it's not about his opinion. It's about his actions.
I'm with the ACLU, I don't think it's right for any politician to consider denying a business permit for political reasons. That doesn't mean that the rest of us should stay quiet.
 
The FRC is listed as a hate group by a pro-gay rights group for opposing gay rights and supporting traditional values.  Shocking.  The SPLC now has the distinction of being the first group I list as a hate group for opposing Christian values at every turn.  We'd all better boycott them now!
 
+Andy King Um, those same Christian groups oppose numerous heterosexual activities.  
 
+Mark Potter
Do they want to imprison you for them?

You also seem to miss that the SPLC isn't just a "pro-gay group". It was founded in 1971 and is responsible for, to quote, "lawsuits [that] have toppled institutional racism in the South, bankrupted some of the nation’s most violent white supremacist groups and won justice for exploited workers, abused prison inmates, disabled children and other victims of discrimination."

If you can think of a party more qualified to identify discrimination and hate when they see it, by all means let us know.
 
The way I see it is if you disagree with the viewpoints and or practices of the President of a restaurant that sells chicken, well we do live in a capitalistic society, go start up your own chicken sandwich restaurant!  If you want to allow or disallow them any right as to how they may govern their business you can only expect the same treatment in your own endeavors.  I don't think the Cathy family would have been as successful if they had been compromising in their values.  There is a market out there for a company who will not bend on their opinion even in the face of sore adversity and that is what they are capitalizing on... Not just delicious chicken.

I used to work there and served several homosexuals as well as a great many more heterosexuals so I know that both parties dine there. There is no reason why any demographic should feel excluded from patronizing this diner.
 
+Mark Potter (as an aside, I'm curious. Does combating racism / exploited workers / abused prisoners count as "opposing Christian values"? You might want to rethink that "boycott".)
 
+Andy King Absolutely...plenty of heterosexual activities and behaviors that are and should be illegal.  

Never said I agreed with him, but to call it hate is absurd.
 
+Andy King (as an aside, does opposition to the exploitation of women and children count as "hate"?  You may want to rethink your opposition to the FRC.)

Clearly you didn't get the point though, that just because a group with a certain goal opposes another group with a different goal, doesn't make either of those groups "hateful".  And calling the other side "hateful" because they oppose what you support is typical liberal tactics
 
Isnt anybody for anything these days? Maybe this company could be promoting family values or discouraging divorce instead of projecting their ancient beliefs. Are they also going to come out against other Christian sins like interracial marriage or masterbation?
 
+John Larberg you should get your facts straight for a change before sounding foolish again
