That's why we won't give our money to these organizations and go elswhere. There's no shortage of places to go.
Perfectly within your rights as a consumer.
Calling for a boycott is not making us do anything and usually everything else is done first in order not to call for a boycott.
Oh please. There are AFA sheep out there who will do anything they are told without question. It's corporate blackmail plain and simple. We're talking about a large organization calling for their members to attempt deliberate financial damage to a company. Otherwise they would simply report the facts and allow their members to decide instead of calling for a boycott.
The whole point of a boycott is a publicly declared refusal to patronize a business until that business agrees to certain demands
. In this case, forced religious beliefs.
Well where are they getting the money? It's not from our hamburgers and shakes? Are you telling me I'm paying EXACTLY the price of a hamburger with NO profit? Do they make their own money in the back alongside the fries?
Now you're just being silly. I thought you were smarter than this. Should I use crayons? It stopped being your money the second you exchanged it for that hamburger. It becomes their money not yours and you damn well know it.
ha! me too! So we hit common ground!
Only because this one happens to fit the anti-gay agenda?
I am anti-stupidity of all sorts.
no, we're not telling them NOT to do what they're doing. We're saying if you support a cause like homosexual marriage, I'm sorry but I can't support you.
Yes actually you are doing exactly that, through blackmail tactics.
Definition of a boycott: to combine in abstaining from, or preventing dealings with, as a means of intimidation or coercion
You're telling them to comply with your viewpoint or else. That's called blackmail.
What you're saying is, if a boss hires you to do a job and he finds out you're supporting homosexual marriage with your pay he can say, sorry I can't pay you for the job you did? Ridiculous.
Yes, it's quite ridiculous, but that's what these people are basically doing. You are paying them to provide a product and then trying to tell them what they can or can't do with the money you have paid them. Pretty ridiculous huh?
How about if your boss found out that you were donating a portion of his money
that he pays to you to a church he doesn't like and told you to stop it or he wouldn't give you any more work? How would you like that?
