“Come on, the CEO set the precedent that Chick-fil-a would be closed on Sundays …it’s pretty safe to say that the employees knew the CEO’s views without having to ask him” Not necessarily, unless you’re assuming that all religions and religous people have identical views when it comes to LGBT individuals. That’s not the case. “Plus, read the stories I posted to your first response.” I haven’t had an opportunity to read them, but I will. Thank you for providing actual sources instead of considering your opinion as the only viable source I need. “Chick-fil-a is a fast food restaurant that serves chicken sandwiches, it’s not the cornerstone of our society” I agree. However, when the CEO of a company is a rich and powerful man with bigoted opinions directed towards a marginalized group of people and uses his wealth from selling chicken sandwiches to contribute to causes that solely target those people, it’s dangerous and wrong. As much as I disagree with it, I respect his right to his opinion (and your right to yours), but it doesn’t end there. It doesn’t end with him just expressing it, he’s actively trying to impose it. That’s what’s wrong. “What you see as ‘hate’ somebody else might see as ‘love.’” I don’t know about you, but when someone actively expresses disdain for who I am to the very core of my being and wants to deny me basic rights that are available to other people because of it, that comes across as hate to me. If anyone considers that love then it’s a pretty messed viewpoint, and I would never want to see what their idea of hate is.
