Not "just an opinion"!

I have to say, I am sick and tired of seeing people complain about us "militant gays" over the Chick-Fil-A issue.  The biggest complaint I'm seeing/hearing is how the LGBT community is being intolerant of Cathy's religious views and his "opinion".  When are people going to realize that this goes so far beyond just an opinion or religious view?  As I told NM State Rep David C. Chavez when we met with him this spring, if we were arguing "red or green" (obscure NM chile reference) then sure, a difference in opinion would be acceptable, but we are arguing over the basic civil rights of a group of human beings!  When your opinion or view is used to push an agenda that sets out to harm the LGBT community, it is no longer just an opinion.  Not to mention the fact that the real issue with Chick-Fil-Hate isn't so much the fact that Cathy issued an opinion, but that the company has shelled out millions to organizations who actively work to harm us!  THAT is not "just an opinion", nor is it an issue of religious freedom!  I saw this cartoon online today, and it fits this situation so well!
