Every action has a consequence, but I do applaud him for standing up for what he believes in, knowing the risk.
I got a laugh from the ignorant pastor's comments.
As far as the vote goes I wouldn't call this state a bigot state SK, if you look at the voter turnout the numbers were appalling. The number of votes cast didn't even equal the number of registered republicans, which tells me many, many people just didn't care. That's the saddest part IMO.

I don't agree with the bigots, but that's their right.

As someone who voted against Amendment Dumb, if I knew a business supported it, and I gave them my business, I would let them know why they lost it. I have no right to complain about others doing the same thing just because I disagree with it.

It a free enterprise, but to lash out on a company because you dont agree with how they spend there money on a political cause is kinda lame.

One thing Replacements it has a very unique business model it will be harder to take the business elsewhere.

As I said earlier I respect his stance, however, IMO the place of business is not the place to conduct politics or controversial issues. I think the t-shirts in the store went too far.

Wow, I wasn't aware they were against the Amendment One. They have a new customer in me! Sort of the Law of Attraction in action...as the bigotry clientele atrophies...the same-hearted, equal rights advocates clientele increases. I am happy for them for this adjustment.

They have always supported LGBT causes, and have a reputation of being a gay-friendly (and otherwise progressive) workplace. A college friend of mine has worked there for years now and has nothing but great things to say about the work environment, and also about how well run - in terms of efficiency - the company is.

They should have seminars, or in the case of the company I work at, semesters.
