So ok for the CEO of chic fil a to make pro-traditional marriage comments but not for the CEO of Starbucks to make anti-traditional marriage comments?
They can both say what they want.
We don't know the context of the conversation or what happened.
The article said that he told a stockholder "You can pull your stock out, if you want."
How do we know the stockholder didn't raise an issue of gay marriage tolerance and expressed his disapproval? To which the reply was, "If you don't like my policies or our corporate stand is on marriage, then you can pull your stock out and invest elsewhere."
The OP was pretty sketchy on details and context so who knows what was said and how.
That's a direct contrast to the publicity of Cathy's comments.
If it comes out that the comments were directly comparable, then you're free to boycott or whatever the other side did vs. chik fil a. Well, actually, there's nothing stopping you from doing that now.
But based on the facts as we know them, a direct comparison doesn't make much sense.
And if this offends someone, then that someone was probably looking to be offended.
I'm just not that PC, I guess.
