“Yes, he needed to go. True, this is America; you’re entitled to free speech. But some things you just don’t do if you’re a public figure. Being against marriage equality is one of those things.”
“Yes. That mindset is outdated. If you’re going to hold an important position in a company, you should be open-minded. If you can’t accept all segments of society, then don’t deal with people. In this day and age, his views are completely unacceptable.”
“Yes. I don’t think people who hold positions that shape public opinion should be able to discriminate. He took the public’s money and spent it for a discriminatory reason. That’s unacceptable. If he kept his opinions private, it would be different. I’d have some sympathy for him.”
“Yes. His views are unfair. I agree he has a right to his views. But the LGBT community also has a right to speak out about those views. And the market spoke. It was a business decision.”
