Hurtful, wrong to hurl charge of bigotry

I would like to protest the lambasting of Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, as bigoted; the unfair labeling of his company as “anti-gay”; and the malicious intentions of certain politicians, including Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, against this legitimate, law-abiding private company.

My friends in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning community have respect and tolerance for those who disagree with their views on issues such as marriage equality. In contrast, there are others in this community who say that they want equality and tolerance for themselves, but spew hate speech against those with views different from theirs.
