The intolerance and hate of many pro-SSM activists began to backfire this week.
First, Adam Smith, a former CFO and treasurer for manufacturer Vante uploaded a video of himself verbally harassing a courteous Chick-fil-A employee:
His employer, Vante, let him go immediately after being made aware of his activities and issued the following statement:
The actions of Mr. Smith do not reflect our corporate values in any manner. Vante is an equal opportunity company with a diverse workforce, which holds diverse opinions. We respect the right of our employees and all Americans to hold and express their personal opinions, however, we also expect our company officers to behave in a manner commensurate with their position and in a respectful fashion that conveys these values of civility with others.
We hope that the general population does not hold Mr. Smith's actions against Vante and its employees.
This is position which echoes that of NOM's corporate fairness project. And the video above has already been viewed over 750,000 times, so word is getting out.
Second, proponents of redefining marriage attempted yesterday to launch a counter-protest against the wildly successful Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day with some activism of their own: a "kiss-in". Those efforts have already been marred, the Los Angeles Times reports, by "Tastes Like Hate" graffiti being scrawled on a Chick-fil-A location in Terrence, CA:
Third, this pattern of harassing Chick-fil-A's ability to do business was already set earlier in the week when a group of pro-SSM halted the grand opening of a Chick-fil-A location in Laguna Hills, CA:

Examples of pro-SSM hate and intolerance like these are a reminder that we need to stay vigilant to demand that our rights to believe and support biblical marriage are not silenced by the other side.
Together, united, they can't drown out or silence our voice!
