Okay, the article has mentioned lots of big companies who support gay marriage. But the only anti mentioned was Shit-Filet. Are there any others?

In Canada of course, this is a non-issue. The issue here is which Canadian company is going to be the next one to be put out of business by Americans, especially after the disaster as Research in Motion.

Of course, we didn't think gays were going to let any Christian companies exist in peace. You won't stop until you've attempted to destroy every Christian company out there because you're on the side of the devil. And you won't stop either until the Constitution with its free speech amendment is consigned to the dust bin of history. You and all your socialist cohorts will stay the course until the United States of America is completely destroyed and Christians are driven underground. But you will not destroy Christians, who will keep the spirit of the USA and the Contitution alive until everybody gets tired of kissing up to gays and socialists and realizes that people are way worse off for having allowed gays and socialist to get their way so much. Then new leadership will emerge.

I can tell you company not meeting yours definition of a "Christian company taking the side of the devil." Feel free to stay in a Hyatt hotel, because they are owned by the Pritzker family of Chicago, a bunch of very rich JEWS. Of course, JEWS are the devil so maybe that is not a good choice for you.

Amazon CEO donated $2.5 MILLION to the Washington State marriage equality effort.

Now THAT's how you support equal rights. Guess I should buy something off Amazon.

I don't think you understood what I said. And, no, Jews are not the devil.

WHAT a load of trash.

Just an fyi, Pam, the following companies are GLBT-friendly: Target, Old Navy, Microsoft, Dell, HP, Levi's, Amazon, Best Buy, KFC, Office Depot, Apple, Starbucks, etc. Best give up that computer of yours now.

Any company that contributes a LOT of money to "focus on the 'family'" or "exodus International" is NOT a "Christian company".

You really need to cut back on your crack consumption, Sickers. Besides, now that you're a woman, wouldn't your money be better spent at WalMart on a new wardrobe?

Choosing not to patronize a business is a personal decision made for many reasons. I have absolutely no problem with gays doing that, too. There are other things happening, though, that are nothing short of bullying of people for their beliefs. That is entirely different.

So, I'll pick and choose where I shop and how much I'll spend. FYI, I haven't been in a KFC in years (nothing to do with gay - I just don't like their food), Apple products are crap, Starbucks coffee is bitter and way over priced - I don't ever go there, Old Navy clothes are cheaply made, there is no Office Depot anywhere around me. So, I shop at few of those companies anyway. And if I need something and really want something, gay won't stop me from patronizing a business, though I will consider if there are other options and choose those other options when I can. I'm certainly not going to make a public spectacle out of myself in front of a business just because my beliefs are different from theirs. I disagrees with your assessment of what Christian" is. The term has been hijacked by some gays who pretend to be "gay Christians."

Of all the people that post here, you take first prize for being the one who makes the most outrageously erroneous statements. Wrong, wrong, wrong again.

What’s erroneous? That you should lay off the crack? That wasn’t a statement of fact, merely a suggestion. Or are you referring to shopping at WalMart? Well,you’ve stopped shopping everywhere else because of their fair treatment of gay people, so what’s left? Remember, you are in Grove City.

Or am I erroneous in referring to you as now being a woman? If you’re not, why would you choose the name “Pam”? So what’s wrong, wrong, and wrong again? Other than you perpetual presence in a gay forum, of course.

Really? Then you have NOT read some of the posts I have on here with some of your types GLOATING about never setting foot into Penney's or eating General Mills cereal or whatever the boycott du jour is at that time.

What are they trying to do with these gleeful boycotts? Why ruin a business that happens to appeal to someone different than they are.

i wonder why they don't boycott Abercrombie and Fitch which is one step from soft core porn? Why, because I am willing to bet that not ONE of the million moms could squeeze her huge ass into one of those trendy outfits so A & F are off their radars.

Why? You will note that "PAM" used to be "SNICKERS", both food products, PAM being a spray for frying, which is SNICKERS PAM'S obvious favorite activity: shoving fried food or candy into his/her/whatever's mouth, thus the attraction to Chick-sill-A.

I wonder where this food fetish will take her next. Perhaps she can have a full name like Betty Crocker. Or become a "man" again and be Duncan Hines. The possibilities are limited only by his/her/its miniscule mind.

Betty Crocker! NEVER! I have had an old battered copy of the Betty Crocker Cook book that I have literally had since about 1980. I worked at B. Dalton and when they had too many of certain books that didn't sell, they just returned the covers and tossed the books. We were allowed to take them home. I still have that coverless cook book and have made MORE recipes out of it which always wow my guests. I never tell them the humble background of dinner! However, I do NOT want Betty Crocker's good name besmirched by the likes of that sexually unclear thing from Pennsylvania.
