Is that any cause that you don't specifically agree with?
Of course not. I have a business, and I would not consider donating money in the name of my business to any political cause or campaign, not even the ones I would vote for.
At any rate, it's been clarified that it wasn't a business donation, but a personal one. For now, I will not worry about this matter, and will continue to buy RRS products. Some will say that's rationalizing, and some won't. I do agree that Joe is being somewhat disingenuous (as are others) when he tries to say he has no problem with gay rights and it's simply a semantic matter of the definition of marriage. It's thinly veiled bigotry. But if I didn't allow myself to buy products from bigoted people, my life would likely be consumed with tedious research, and I'd probably have to get rid of half the shit I own.
I'm glad Joe posted here in attempt to clarify his donation and his position. I think he is misguided and hypocritical, whether he realizes it or not, and I disagree with him completely. I also respect his right to his own opinion, his products, and his willingness to come into this thread and engage people.
