Has an "artists" political views ever caused you to boycott them?

To each his own. I for one don't help finance people or companies that I feel do things I disagree with. Be it for any reason, not just political. Here's an example...back in the 90's Levi Strauss stopped donating money to the Boy Scouts (gay troop leader banishment) and I thought it was bad form to make a public announcement about it. They stuck their nose into something they shouldn't have based on their HQ's location (SF). I agreed with the boy scouts on this issue and decided I didn't need Levi Strauss products anymore. To this day I have not bought or worn any LS products. If I find out things about companies or individuals that I disagree with I avoid supporting them. Just the way I roll.

Better to not go digging around or you'll soon have to sew your own clothes.

I don't dig around. It's when people or companies fell they need to make a statement. Then I can make mine.

Well that situation is totally different. Gay people are evil and deserve to be shunned and ridiculed. I don't think anyone can dispute that.

I didn't say gay was evil. I said they made their choice public thus allowing me to make a choice. Had they done it privately I'd have never known about it.

You didn't need to. It goes without saying.

consider it a sin all you want, i don't particularly give a sh*t what your backwards brain thinks. everyone has the right to be a bigot. but when you make a national campaign to try to get the actual decent people to twist their brain like yours, then it is too far. live your own life, judge not lest ye be judged, and stfu.

the gay life expectancy was shorter in the 80s. now aids is balanced by the fact that gay people average 70% more money and live healthier, happier lives.

But it is OK for your side to attempt to twist brains to think like yours? And your not bigotted toward people who think different from you, are you? I mean, the whole BACKWARD BRAIN slam seemed a little mean-spirited. TSK TSK!

BTW, it is perfectly acceptable for the RIGHTEOUS to judge. Someone has to point sin out to others, and being righteous does not make you perfect, but it means that you are STRIVING to be Christlike, who was perfect afterall. At the end of the day, I'm not righteous enough to tell you what to do or think, and personally could not care less about your lifestyle. I just enjoy pointing out your own bigotry and hypocrisy.

so because they said they didn't like Bush, they were anti American views.

In the views of their redneck fans 98% of their fanbase at the time.
