What is your reaction to this?

(*sidenote: these are just the ones I could find. There could be far more for either category*)

- Agnostic Atheist

Update:

"Popular".

It was only the popular belief as of the 2013 poll that found 53% of Americans were pro-gay.

In the 2012 poll, that number was in the low 40's.

This list was retrieved as of November 2012. (via website)

Sorry, your argument has been INVALIDATED.

Update 2:

Hm. Funny. Chick Fil-A was the only company on the non-pro list that was boycotted. All others businesses are practically free of boycott.

Mind you, these companies have and continue to receive boycotts in the south for supporting so.

I think your point argues in my favour, scooterpoop.

Update 3:

**Correction, Apple, Google, NBC, Tim Horton's, Starbucks, and Delta have all used gay rights symbols in ads as of 2013.

Update 4:

A source, you would like a source? Okay.

There you go. :)

If you would like pictures of the ads endorsing gay rights that I mentioned above, feel free to ask.

Update 5:

@The person who claims it to be fake

I did that for disambiguation purposes.

(I know that's a pretty hard word for people like you to get by).

Aside from that, they all run on independent management (maybe one owner, but different branches of management.)

Not all of Microsoft's franchises themselves have officially declared support, but the head office has and as has some other [franchises], such as Xbox.

    My reaction to this is as follows: This is fake. It was believable up until you addressed Microsoft and "Windows, Bing, Xbox, Xbox 360" as two separate things. It was even more unbelievable when you addressed "Windows, Bing, Xbox, Xbox 360" as COMPANIES. Windows, Bing, Xbox, and Xbox 360 are PRODUCTS made by MICROSOFT. And, you referenced Google and YouTube to to be two separate companies, whereas Google OWNS YouTube. I can point out SO many more mistakes, rather, lies, with this (almost every line), there are just too much to state here. Honestly, if you are going to lie, at least do it right. And, please don't generalize all Christians into one group. Most Christians believe that homosexuals should have EVERY RIGHT that other people have (after all, they're people, they're citizens), they just think that homosexuality is wrong. As for me, I am silent on this issue. I just wanted to point out that this whole list of yours is made up by you.

    P.S. Any Christian that says homosexuals should not have rights is most likely a hypocrite. I mean, they're excuse is that it is wrong, but (according to them), so is Islam, so is Judaism, so is Hinduism, yet, they all agree that they should have the same rights as everyone else. See the hypocrisy?

    P.S.S. Jesus always talked to sinners kindly, He treated them just as He treated everyone else, He loved them, He wanted to help them. Yet, this group of so-called "Christians" want to take away the rights of them? AND THEY USE JESUS AS AN EXAMPLE????

    Fellow Christians, remember,

    "He who is without sin shall cast the first stone."

    EDIT: Please state ALL of your sources.

    And, that "disambiguation" statement was quite cheap. You underestimate my intelligence.

    EDIT #2: *All CREDIBLE sources. Meaning without Paula Deen or dancing cats.

    Source(s): I AM a Christian. A proud one.

    Well, I was already boycotting Exxon Mobil for the Valdez oil spill...

    And as for urban outfitters they are known for being racist and ignorant so surprise surprise....

    And I can't eat fried or junky food due to health reasons so it's not like chic-fi- a will ever tempt me.

    And Walmart? Really? Is anyone actually shocked at this?

    I think the companies that support it are great. They are on the right side of history. There are also some Christians who think so too. There are even gay Christians as well believe it or not....

    My reaction is to say that supporting the popular political thoughts pays very well.

    Do you *honestly* think that if the popular sentiment was turned around that these companies would still be supporting your idea of "gay rights" (which, no doubt, is perverting the definition of Marriage)? If so, you are naive.

    Or were you expecting something like: Ermagerd, XBox 360 wants ghay merrage, my mind is totes changed.

    Edit: First off, stop saying "pro-gay" or "gay rights," the terms are ridiculously vague.

    Second, it would take a severe lack of intelligence to see where public opinion was heading, and what position was the "cool" one given the immense over-representation in popular media.

    Besides, it is easy to see that something can be popular and profitable without being the majority. Hipsters, greasers, hippies, etc.

    They may make money from excepting evil but in the end they will stand before God.

    Few will be saved and many will revive damnation.

    Life is a test of faith in God/Jesus and your life.

    Homosexuality is an abomination before God.

    Matthew 7:13-14

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    The Narrow Way

    13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 Because[a] narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

    Satan may score a few touchdowns with his children but God/Jesus will win the game.

    in accordance with the different publish. To lump us all jointly isn't in basic terms right. maximum Christians experience like I do. The technique used interior the crusades grow to be not often Christ-like and as a result grow to be no longer glorifying God. there are multiple people who get overzealous and do issues interior the call of God, yet they are not following God. I do purely no longer see God ever condoning violence against others. the sole time there has ever been an exception to this grow to be whilst God commanded the infants of Israel to regain Canaan's land. because of the fact God needed that land freed from any effect, he ordered the destruction of each and every of the enemies. I used to ask your self why God might prefer the females and infants additionally destroyed, there is one reason: it fairly is, because of the fact in case you ruin a father, the spouse and infants will plot revenge and the conflict will proceed from one era to the subsequent. So, as cruel because it may seem, it fairly is reasons why Canaan grow to be meant to be thoroughly conquered and take no prisoners as far because of the fact the crusades, i do no longer think that this grow to be in step with any commandment by God.

    All of these companies issue statements in favor of gay rights so that the idiot leftists won't boycott them. It does NOT mean they support gay rights.

    Had you bothered to take a freshman level business class, you'd know that they teach you public relations from day #1.

    ************

    You think it argues in my favor because you don't realize this same list of companies uses only heterosexuals in ads (never gays).

    My point is that you're too easily duped to know what point your making.

    (I made no mention of the fact that you gave no source, and your list is not believable. I felt that went without saying.)

    I love my gay brother and I hope he is allowed to work or shop anywhere he so chooses. I'm not sure what reaction you want, but this seems as if your antagonizing the faithful, not opening their eyes to have deeper compassion.

    And none of them are bigger than God, who has the last word.

    Keep that list and watch what happens to them.

    My reaction is Why is such a list necessary? None of this is surprising
