Green claims to have built his business squarely on biblical principles and attributes his success to his faith in God. OK... that's fine. Good for him. But he also wants us to respect his constitutional right to "religious freedom"  while not respecting those same right for everyone who isn't Christian which is why his stores don't sell any holiday items that are un-Christian such as Menorah. He also seems to want religious freedom rights to apply to his for-profit corporation. AND he hates 'the gays' (shock, shock) and has publicly threatened to close his business if forced to give his employees healthcare that includes birth control and morning after pills. That's fine. He can do that, and I don't have to shop there. Ever.
