  •  I am not entirely sure why they bothered... (0+ / 0-)

    someone at CFA HQ ran the numbers and panicked at the lost sales or something, but if they had stopped to think for a second, they would have realized this is not a solution either.

    I mean PLEASE do not get me wrong... I am so happy they won't be donating to "Pray the gay away" and "Homos are criminals!" bullshit now. I am VERY happy to hear that.

    But looking at this from a business standpoint... this is relatively meaningless. I mean, Libs who were genuinely pissed off about this nonsense probably aren't ever going to go back to being regular customers, and with this caving in, they pissed off whatever rabid teabaggers they may have gained as fans.

    The rabid right don't take kindly to this sort of thing. And the libby left quite often writes off the companies they already started boycotting, because they've come to realize they don't need that company anyway.

    So, I'm not sure that this is a win for anyone involved other than gay people, which is good news indeed.
