“I think a lot of people felt that if you’re a Muslim and you take a position against same-sex marriage, Rahm Emanuel will put his arm around you in a public ceremony like he did to Louis Farrakhan the very day he was condemning Dan Cathy, and it’s that hypocrisy and inconsistency and intolerance and bigotry toward Christians that I think people are just tired of.”

“I’d love to talk to them; I’d love to ask what government authority gave them the right to censor commerce in their communities because they disagreed with someone who worked there. The CEOs of Apple Computers, Starbucks, Ben and Jerry’s, Amazon all support same sex marriage, have given generously to it, but I still drink Starbucks; I use my iPhone and MacBook; I’ll order things on Amazon, and I’ll eat Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. I’m not buying their politics; I’m buying their products, and I think people need to quit being so ridiculously fearful that somebody might have a point of view that’s different than mine. I expect them to have a different one; I just expect them to treat each other with civility and a sense of respect.”
