A friend of mine posted this on her page.

If you do not support marriage equality, and you currently patronize any of these products/stores/sites...would you stop immediately upon finding out that they do support same sex marriage?

I have a friend who is extremely opposed to homosexuality, and all things relating to. She learned that Old Navy supported them, so she and her (adult) daughter decided they would not ever shop at Old Navy again. I told her Starbucks was on the list. Well.....all of a sudden, it wasn't such a bad thing. hahaha. Hypocrites.

Applebee's is? That's surprising considering the latest story I've heard about them. I heard a gay employee was canned after someone kept verbally harassing him.

There are few corporations or other organizations whose philosophies completely align with my own. I don't boycott businesses for decisions that don't affect their product.

 LOL> No, I don't boycott. That would be useless.

I support pro-choice and pro same sex marriage anyway.  big smile mini

Applebee's has franchises, so the moves of the individual staff and managers don't always align with the corporate stance. If I recall, in that story the CEO heard about the firing and sent him back to work. I'm not sure of how they've handled it since though.

No.  While I don't support SSM I have no problem with those who do support it.

So would it be acceptable if two brothers married each other or two sisters?

That's not SSM, that is incest.
