This gave me a laugh.
First of all, do they really expect to make much of a dent in Starbucks? Even if they do, are they thinking of all the people, even the people on their side, that'll hate them for attacking a major company like this?

Second, bigots always complain when people boycott companies that donate to hate groups. Yet when people attack major companies for their views (that have been known for quite a while, by the way), they scream in joy. They're all a bunch of hypocritical bigots.

When I said people would hate them, I mean that if they do succeed in making a dent in Starbucks, they'd have to raise costs to cover damages. People will be pissed at NOM for that raise in costs if they are Starbucks goers, gay individuals and bigots alike.

You make a good point, it'd be even more hilarious to try and attack Microsoft.
They'd snuff out NOM in one blow.

Starbucks won't be affected much by this though, they're too big and NOM is way too small.

Besides, I doubt people who donated to NOM are happy that they're attacking companies who supported equality, attacking for past events. I bet they're a little peeved that their donations aren't being saved for fights for equality in the future.
NOM isn't a very smart hate group.

I didn't think of the possibility that someone could be killed in the process while it is 100% true that the possibility exists.
NOM is a destructive force that claims it is doing good, yet they fail to realize what their actions could yield consequentially.

If gays don't want opposition to focus on companies overtly supporting gay agendas, maybe the leading gay organizations should stop publishing lists of companies most friendly to their agendas and recommendations for consumers to use the lists to focus discrimination onto companies not specifically heralding gay agendas. As usual, it's the gays generating the problems.

If gays insist on polarizing the issue and harassing companies not actively supporting their agendas increasingly focused on turning youth into sexually active perverts, there will undoubtedly be a reversed use of the lists generated by organizations surreptitiously supporting NAMBLA agendas by indoctrinating children in first grade and in their consumption of candy bars, etc.

It's gays generating the lists identifying Hershey's as encouraging more gay access to children, not NOM.

Fools..... the Middle East hates everyone from America and Canada along with everyone else that are So called Christians. (not only gay people)Although that is what many of them do behind closed doors. I was stationed in the Middle East with the Army most men use boys and each other for sexual pleasure but still want to marry a virgin. FOOLS joining FOOLS looks good on them.

Its a brilliant idea!(NOT) Let's go into countries where the LGBT population is constantly attacked (physically and often to the point of death) and spread the anti-gay message even further. NOM you are a DISGUSTING organization who uses despicable mechanisms to support your unsupportable stance. You should be ashamed. The blood of those in the LGBT community in the middle east will now be on your hands. Ironic isn't it...how you claim to be the moral ones (with so many values) when all your tactics are as immoral as possible.

The antigay are simply not logical. In fact, by some indications I'm reading and seeing, you're now witnessing just the beginning of their utter hysteria on this subject: NOW I believe they are going to get extreme.

Getting "desperate" is not a good thing to call it, as I see some saying; they're far from over with this fight. What they will get is *extreme*, even sabotaging their own self-interests.

This is because their viewpoint is based, for them, in *ideology* which is unchangeable and unbudgeable. It is antigay *ideology* based on a *moral imperative* which drives them to behave in this way: In short, you're seeing what indoctrination does to otherwise normal people who become batshit demons, hysterical with hatred.
