    It is not a crime to refuse to embrace homosexuality. It is not a crime to refuse to support homosexuality.

    We still have free speech rights in the USA.

    I don't think we are very far off from a time when if you do not
    actively support the gay lifestyle your business will suffer,you will feel
    pressure from the community to pack up and move elsewhere.
    Local government will go out of their way to get you out of town.

    You're right.............we DO have free speech rights in this country, but remember..........it's a double edged sword.

    You have the right to say what you like (Chik Fil A CEO has the right to say he doesn't approve of homosexuality), and the people who DO support gay rights have the right to protest and say that they don't approve of what he said.

    Same thing with Dr. Laura. She said some pretty fucked up stuff on her radio show about African Americans, and those same people who felt offended utilized their free speech to denounce what she said and boycott businesses that supported her program.

    Nobody is being stopped from airing their views, it's just that conservatives get pissed off whenever someone disagrees with them and accuses them of trying to supress their free speech, even though the liberals disagreeing with them have the same right of free speech to disagree.

    Having the right to free speech means you can say what you want, but also means that others can express opinions on what you just said.

    I never saw the Chick Fil A CEO being muzzled, did anyone else, and if so, can you provide an actual news link?

    A bunch of gay activists vandalized a Chick-Fil-A restaurant (their expression of 'free speech'). Free speech does not include commiting crimes against those you disagree with.

    The problem with gay activists is they engage in criminal activity. I simply boycott is sufficient but these gay extremists want to use any and all means to silence opinions they dont agree with.

    I have no issue with the public deciding to boycott anything. I will not shop at Walmart, however I don't think government should prevent a business from locating anywhere.

    Agree that homosexual activist bullies engaging in malicious criminal activity is not free speech.

    They are a minority it idoes not give them the right to shove their life style in our face. If you don't like the company don't buy anything. I can assure you they will surrive.

    That's what generally happens when there is a state religion.
