Starbucks, Google, CBS, Nike urge gay marriage recognition

Nov 11, 2011 Full story: www.bpnews.net 72

Some of the nation's top companies such as Google, CBS, Starbucks and Nike have joined forces in a legal brief asking a federal court to force the federal government to recognize gay "marriage." The friend-of-the-court brief asks the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a 2010 lower court ruling that struck down part of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. In that ruling, Judge Joseph L. Tauro said the federal government must recognize gay "marriages" from such states as Massachusetts, Vermont and the other four states where it's legal.

Well,a boycot is in order if they cave in to the demands of these perverts.
One can only hope you and your fellow travelers DO boycott these companies. In the past, every company you people have boycotted for their gay stance has seen a significant increase in their sales and profits. I am particularly grateful for the souther baptist of Disney World. I hold a significant amount of Disney stock in my portfolio and that boycott caused their profit to jump 5%. Five percent doesn't sound like a lot until you look at what it was five percent of. That was a hefty addition to my savings.

Could you also find a way to boycott Apple and Coke? I'm counting the extra money already.

To Curteese and others here, thank you. There is no point anymore to attempting dialogue with the anti-gay; they are obsessed and they will not shut up.

Let them boycott ALL of these businesses; they WILL NOT be able to function in modern society without severe hardship if they attempt to do so. Let them. Let them. Enough is enough. They're amoral filth with big mouths who cannot shut the fuck up. They HAVE NO moral code, none. If anyone is stupid enough to listen to anything they have to say about how one should live one's life, then you're an utter, laughable idiot and you deserve everything you get. Absolutely nothing these people say will even *come near touching* what I call a set of normal, caring, compassionate moral values which include gay people like they include everyone else, end of discussion. End of discussion.

And that one loser who talks about the "illegality" of homosexuality, please, everyone is TAUNTING and DARING you to PLEASE, PLEASE go start a court case. We WANT you to. We'd LOVE to see it because we're betting you are exponentially too stupid to realize how much you will help the gay cause. Please, go find an attorney and say EVERYTHING you have said here in a courtroom. We would ADORE, LOVE, absolutely JUMP FOR JOY to see it.

Show that you have a backbone and a pair of goddamn nuts and go start that court case somewhere. NO ONE is stopping you. Not one soul is stopping you. Go tell a judge all of that and see what happens.

I cannot encourage you enough.

Although I think it speaks volumes that you wouldn't dare attempt it and that any attorney you approached would be risking loss of their license.

Go do it, I wanna watch you do it and I wanna watch you make the news.

What we really need is a boycott of all Christian Churches where the Con-artist preaches hate and bigotry to all the pew warmers like youself. I hope someone burns your church to the ground.

It is time to tax the churches. The 2nd admendment recognizes a seperation of church and state so what the hell is the government playing favorites to one business, the church, over any other?

Which is why we need managed groups so a manager can delete all of their posts. But then if that happened, while we would no longer have to suffer their endless drivel, about 75% of today's posts seem to be replies to these delusional idiots. Do we encourage them at the same time we tell them how delusional and stupid they are?

70+ major companies.
100+ Congressmen
The DOJ

All these add up to a major victory in the 1st circuit overturning DOMA, but we have to be patient and wait till 2012/2013.

Come on, big mouth, tell us what kind of computer you have and then I will look it up and see if they are gay friendly or not, and in the likely event they ARE, then you must follow through and STOP using your computer. So, come on, big shot. One or two words is all we need. "Hewlett Packard", "Apple," "Sony," which computer are you using?

Boycott away no one will notice. The majority of U.S. business support LGBT people. Businesses found out in a hurry what happens when they act like bigots like you. So have fun with your boycotting to bad you won't be able to let us know how its going because most likely the computer you use and your IP our both LGBT friendly.

LOL, if someone called me a "fat head" I'd probably punch them square in the face and say, "Not much, knuckle face."

All right???

If you are truly trying to be friendly and cool, then bring it on. I am more than willing to meet someone half way, no matter what his or her view point or conservative point of view, for that is the point of conversation back and forth, but if you are just messing with us, then knock it off. There are too many who log on here merely to hurl their monkey poop and just love to taunt for no reason.

I've befriended very conservative folk on here before, even Honest Abel and I have a mutual respect, but don't play me. I can turn vicious at the drop of a hat.
