That's it I'm quitting Golds. This is BS. What about those who support contributions to Karl Rove's efforts? Did the management consider polling it's membership on this issue at least instead of making it's own decisions based on the political climate? Unbelieveable!

Maybe Golds Management should direct their attention on their staff and trainers who use and sell narcotics (incl steroids) on their own premises...

Why is there such racism and hatred by the previous commentators on this list? What have members of the LGBT community done to you personally? Why so much anger? Isn't there something different about you that you want people to accept of you?

Offended me with their vulgarity, lack of morals, decency and willingness to force their personal choices on me as a "civil right". Other than that, nothing.

Although, I am politically conservative, I was actually about to join Gold's Gym despite their obvious gay connection.(see the ad for a gay dance party at the Folsom St fair in the news section). I figure- live and let live. I am there to work out.

Now this public act to censure Gold's Gym for supporting a conservative group (not incidentally in any way shape or form anti-gay) has me think twice where I spend my dollars.

If they really think they can grow their business by censuring other's people speech, let them have at it. They will not get my $$$.

If you Liberals can't see what is wrong with this, imagine if Gold's Gym CEO was supporting liberal causes and a franchisee made a public attack on his views-you'd have your "panties in a bunch"

WE ALL & ALWAYS MUST-BE PC AT ALL TIMES REGARDLESS OF THE COSTS ..........

"Anytime you and I question the schemes of the do-gooders, we're denounced as being against their humanitarian goals. They say we're always "against" things, we're never "for" anything. Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

-- Resistance to the vast expansion of government power, intrusiveness and debt, as represented by the Tea Party movement? Why, racist resentment toward a black president.
-- Disgust and alarm with the federal government's unwillingness to curb illegal immigration, as crystallized in the Arizona law? Nativism.
-- Opposition to the most radical redefinition of marriage in human history, as expressed in Proposition 8 in California? Homophobia.
-- Opposition to a 15-story Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero? Islamophobia.

it is funny because california thinks that what is right out here is right throughout the rest of the country. The fact of the matter is, only california tolerates gays. You could throw in New York as well. But the rest of the country does not tolerate gays. The country seems to believe that gays equal anarchy in the streets and that would be no way to run gov't. Also, Obama has really hurt the gay movement by putting so many radical gays in positions of power. People feel he is doing it to cause anarchy. Even Gavin Newsom hurt the gays bigger than any other mayor in recent memory when he said "Whether you like it or not!". That statement turned off a lot of californians when gov't acts that we work for them and not the other way around. Gavin's statement was broadcast throughout the entire country and showed up all over the place in ad's during this latest election.

the gays don't like it when you don't follow them in lock-step. Hitler was exactly the same way.

Anyone notice that in the last 2 years that "LGBT" is everywhere from bus stops, to billboards, to tv commercials, etc. All of a sudden this stuff is being jammed down our throats. Now I have my kids asking me what this stuff is all about.

My kids are not allowed to step into that gold's gym. I know other parents have warned their kids too.

Free speech and individual beliefs only apply if you agree with Dems? What happened to respect of different opinions?
