They aren't imposing their beliefs onto religious institutions. All they want is their marriages to recoginized by state just like everyone elses. Stop being ignorant.

civil unions are secular rights.
Marriage is a religious institution based on a covenant made between a man and a woman and God.
So, why is it a gay right to impose their beliefs onto religious institutions?
Me personally I am very libertarian in my political beliefs and it simply confuses me why heterosexual ideals and institutions are wrong by default but homosexual ideals are sacrosanct. But I am old fashioned too.
I think having a mom and a dad in a functional household is a cool environment to raise healthy children.
When people disagree with your sexual orientation, writing it off as a mental disorder, demonic possession, or other things just as stupid, it makes sense that you're going to hate that group and not be tolerant of their views; However, it is not reasonable to hate a group based on their sexual orientation, no matter what mythological being you believe in.

Ha. There are busnesses that contribute money to homosexual groups where those groups are discriminatory themselves in not allowing people to disagree with their lifestyle. Most homosexuals (but not all) are hypocrites. They call people bigots and yet calling someone a bigot by definition makes you a bigot because you don't agree with them either.
They make a mockery of what already is a mockery.

I'll avoid them just on the basis that they support factory farming and selling unhealthy garbage to people who might otherwise believe that it's Jesus-approved.

I commend Chick-Fil-A on their decision.
Before Sam Walton died, Wal-Mart did the same thing.
Then they started opening short hours on Sunday.
Then the SuperCenters started them 24/7.
Causing OTHERS to remain open on Sunday to compete.
Oh well, the good guys can't get a break. Unless they stick to their guns, provide a good product at a good price.
Not everybody worships or worships on Sunday.
I live near a military base. Walmart being open 24/7 is a blessing to those who do not have 9-5 jobs.
I'm from a time when businesses closed on Sunday - - and many on Saturday - - and banks were only open to 3 weekdays.
You have no idea what you take for granted today.
