Nice article, but isn't this line a little over the top?

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos donates $2.5 million to promote gay marriage

Time to boycott Amazon?
While I probably won't change my shopping habits because of this, it did strike me as I placed an order today that I am basically funding Toeiva marriages with my purchases :(

Are you for real?  I'm not even getting into the politics, but do you know how many companies you'd have to boycott if you did that. For starters Google and  all their products.

I know, I know! I was joking.
It's just that I shop so much on Amazon and this was the largest donation ever given to gay marriage. If not for my generous support of Amazon, there's no way Bezos could've given so much  ;)   JK!

ok ok, i'm sorry. I'm just used to talking to so many really arrogant and clueless people on that subject I really do get irked.  It's sad politics gets mixed with business, but until I see some revolutionary psak about this we just have to live and letlive.

+1

 I also think it's ridiculous when people boycott companies that aren't for gay marriage.
Why can't two people just have different opinions?

        Except with a story like this http://www.nwherald.com/2012/07/30/ill-eagle-scout-returns-medal-to-protest-gay-ban/awqx10w/ where they are actually acting negatively towards you because a person is gay. That I can understand how people would boycott.

But otherwise this whole thing has gotten out of hand.
