  •  This. And one thing about southern attitutes - (8+ / 0-)

    If you're not anti-gay, you do a lot of keeping your mouth shut due to the general established ways of society.

    BUT keeping your wallet shut? Covering the real reason up by claiming you'd rather go someplace else for lunch? THAT the smile-and-nod back pew contingent can do.

    If this had been going on back when I was still in the SBC church I grew up in and was still hiding my true thoughts on Sunday mornings, I would have been all over being part of the boycott - because it's something that would feel safe and available to do for someone without other ways of showing support that don't feel extremely risky.

    The closeted Southern allies will be out in force for this, and they may just realize how many of their neighbors are too.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
