    •  Sad, used to be the kitchen table. (5+ / 0-)

      Pushed to the wall, leaving a smooth linoleum floor to dance to Fever and other hot songs. A little padding on the table...

      I digress. We have successfully clipped Rush's business by hitting radio stations and advertisers. This is using capitalism to promote social mores.

      1. The accepted traditional customs and usages of a particular social group.
      2. Moral attitudes.
      3. Manners; ways.

      Sociology: the customs and conventions embodying the fundamental values of a group or society.

      When a company is donating money to groups that advocate killing people for their sexual orientation, it is a profound moral issue. Manners denote respect for the person you are interacting with. At a minimum, being civil.

      This is a fight over replacing old mores with new. It is ugly and dangerous. We have people being injured and dying because of the 'acceptable' hatred still in evidence in our society. Many others are living very stressful and unhappy lives - a slower form of death.

      Yes, we need to use every non-violent, constructive, positive form of telling other Americans: that is not OK. It is specifically the homosexuality is wrong based on their interpretation of the Bible. Hobby Lobby has been openly Christian and does not allow the stores to be open on Sundays. Don't remember anyone giving them problems over it.  

      Someday, they will get over it. Meanwhile, attack at will.
