NC businessman's principled stand against #AmendmentOne has cost him

Replacements Limited’s Stand for Gay Marriage Has a Cost -

Bob Page in NYT
Hostile letters and e-mails poured into the company from customers canceling their business and demanding to be removed from its e-mail list. “I understand that your company donated $250,000 or so to the effort to ban the marriage amendment,” read one. “I am very concerned that with an increased visibility and acceptance of the gay and lesbian lifestyle, one of my children, who would have grown up and been happily married to a husband, could be tempted to the lesbian lifestyle.”
The lesson I take from this is to be (even more) vocal with businesses that push their right-wing religious ideology so they know why I won't do business with them.
