Poll: Should Companies Be Boycotted for the Political Views of Their Execs?

Latest blow-up concerns Chick-fil-A CEO’s comments against gay marriage and the reactions.

When Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy recently said, “We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit,” he stirred the pot on gay marriage, igniting comments like those of San Diego Councilman Todd Gloria (who represents Hillcrest, a haven for gays): “I think it’s surprising that a well-run corporation would choose to ignore a huge group of consumers. That’s disappointing and, quite frankly, dumb.” Some are urging boycotts. But should McDonald’s and Carl’s Jr. (when they were run by Ray Kroc and Carl Karcher) have been targeted by Democrats?  Those owners were solid conservative as well.

D.C. and K.G. Calling me a Jesus troll is really not bad at all, in fact I kind of like it. I don't mind shouting the words of Jesus to anyone. What you two could use is maybe a dose of spirituality, and then you might stop writting the trite you both are so good at.

If the Islamics gain control they will promptly do away with the gays.
