  •  well, yeah...it really is that simple. (15+ / 0-)

    There is no reason that I, or anybody, should support a business that they don't agree with. There are always other choices. Making one of those other choices doesn't necessarily mean that anyone is 'demonizing' that business.

    •  to me at least this is about a bigger issue (1+ / 0-)

      this is bigger than Papa Johns or CFA. This is about how I treat churches because of LGBT and womens rights, how I treat police departments because of Black rights, how I treat organizations that try to find a cure for cancer, but are against abortion, how I treat schools that don't teach climate change or evolution, etc.

      Its easy to say just don't support them. But what I'm saying is that this hurts us too because it separates us from the business (organization) and its customers (users). Some of these things are evil empires and should be boycotted, but the decision of whether or not I'm going to do that isn't just based on one part of a political agenda.

      And this "if you're not with us, you're against us" type mentality type mentality only hurts us as nobody agrees with us on 100% of the issues.

      But from my comments on this issue, people know my opinion and I'm already getting called names. I'll just leave this one alone because there's no point in talking if nobody's listening.

      •  I think there may be some misunderstanding. (4+ / 0-)

        A) I never called you names.
        B) You don't support boycotting certain businesses. That's fine. All I was saying is that the reasons that you're giving are flawed.
        C) 'there's no point in talking if nobody's listening.' Very classy. I was attempting to have an honest discussion with you, but since I don't agree with you, I'm not listening? Ok. No more responses from me either then.

          I just get tired of being called a troll for voicing a different opinion (not by you, but definitely in this diary). Looking at this page, its going around a lot (as if I need to post a diary and be a member for 40 years to show my stripes). I mean I'm all for an honest discussion, but I really feel like this site discourages differences in opinion.

      do you keep insisting pizza is unhealthy. If you look at the ingredients, it, actually a pretty balanced meal.
