Chic-Fil-A boycott

Here comes the question: should you boycott a business just because their owners have different values than you?  Well, of course, it depends on who you ask.  The gay marriage crowd definitely thinks you should, and those who are against gay marriage think otherwise.  I think it really depends.  If you buy someone’s services, you are, in essence, funding whatever it is that they contribute to.  I should imagine that everyone would call for a boycott if it turned out that McDonald’s was donating money to NAMBLA.  Just think about your friends.  You might have a friend who turns out to have a different opinion on capital gains tax.  You might think his position is stupid, but it’s probably not enough to cause you to break off your friendship.  However, if it turns out that your friend is a member of the KKK, you are probably going to stop hanging out with him.  As such, if Chic-fil-a’s position is that important to you…yes, you should boycott.  However, if the only reason youa re boycotting is because some pundit tells you to, you’re being an idiot and you should learn to think for yourself.

Long Live the Constitution!
