Calling for church boycotts

In this SF Chronicle article- opponents of prop 8 have called for boycotts of LDS(Mormon) owned businesses and others who supported prop 8.

Some of the opponents of Prop. 8 have called for a boycott of Mormon-owned businesses and others who gave money to support the ban on same-sex marriage, which is being challenged in court.

People shouldn't be any more surprised that Mormons, Catholics and other religious groups gave money to Prop. 8 than they are that gays and lesbians opened their checkbooks to support it, said Edwin Bender, executive director of the National Institute on Money in State Politics.

This sounds very tolerant to me(can you just smell the sarcasm). Boycott churches that have core basic beliefs that are different than yours. Because everyone should have your views and if they don't -gosh darn it - they should- even if you have to force them. That's what democracy is all about folks!!
