"One part of me says, 'kudos to you.' At least they didn't back down about the fact that they're ignorant. And when people confronted them about it, they said yeah, we really are that bigoted and we really don't like gay people and we don't want to have anything to do with them. I sort of personally appreciate people or companies or policies who are that blatantly clear in their personal ethics. Because then that really sets a tone of like, 'we don't want to have anything to do with you.' And then I think it's up to our community, and people who are behind our community to say, 'You know what? We don't want to support this business.'
"[Chik-fil-A's antigay donations] make my stomach turn, and I think it's absolutely horrendous and I think it's really stupid business. But if that's their choice, that's their choice.”
