So effectively you'd be saying to that business, "I'm not going to support your business because you're gay and you work there, and because of the climate dealing with Prop 8 you're going to suffer for it even though you might not care about Prop 8"
Yeah that sounds great.

Some of the gay community on the other hand, are likely guilty of many crimes in their attacks against those who voted or speak out unfavorably to them incuding trespassing, hate crimes, conspiracy, slander, property damage.
Those involved should be held accountable for breaking the law and charged, tried, and sentenced if applicable.
Boycotting is not illegal. Infringing on another's lawfully recognized rights is.
can you please provide sources
There have been calls to boycott the annual Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah; some activists have called for a boycott of the entire state of Utah. Protesters have defaced some church buildings, and in Arapaho County, Colo., the Sheriff's Office is investigating a possible hate crime — the torching of the Book of Mormon on a church's doorstep.

Sorry, but I am going to have to press the "ignore" button. I am getting tired of your personal attacks.
The blanket blame on Christianity is absurd. For example, Bill Gates gave 100 million dollars to fight aids in Africa. Christians are leading the fight against the problem caused by homosexuals. The majority of America is Christian, and the majority of America is heterosexual, and the amount of tax dollars spent on fighting AIDS from these Christians is staggering.
I do not see the teaching of tolerance for an immoral act as a good thing.
Homosexuals created the AIDS virus? And it's rampant homosexuality spreading HIV around Africa?
And you keep calling homosexuality an "immoral act". What's going to happen when homosexuality is proven to be something one is born with and not a choice?

I have a better idea. How about we add sexual orientation to the list of qualities that we are not allowed to legally discriminate against people for having? How about we let homosexual people marry and have the same rights as everyone else? How about cultures move forward into more fair systems which respect individual rights, rather than backward into conformity.

Maybe even at your backdoor. We've been here since the beginning of time and we are not going away any time soon. We're finally pissed off and I don't see us backing down now.
