I don't doubt that he's a nice enough man, just as I don't doubt that Hitler had plenty of friends in his personal life, many of whom probably disagreed with the Holocaust. It doesn't matter, the question is not of his personality but of his character. He can say all the nice things he wants and be as friendly as he wants, as long as he continues to fund groups denying the LGBT community their rights I have a problem with him.

I'm pretty sure the article says that chick fil a is going to steer clear of funding those groups from now on.

No it says they're going to steer clear of funding "the most divisive" of those groups, it does not say all groups that seek to prevent Gay Marriage.

and steer clear of political groups.

EDIT: I misread that part. It only says they would not engage in public, political rhetoric.

Anyway. I think this is still definitely a step in the right direction. You can't expect such a drastic change over night. I think likening him to Hitler is totally unfair.

So? Some religious groups still work to prevent gay marriage, rather they identify as political or not does not lessen this.

I wasn't likening him to Hitler in his actions so much as using a hyperbole to demonstrate that people who promote bigotry can still be friendly and nice to hang out with.

Are you suggesting that the author has been duped by Chickfila's CEO's charm, and he actually hasn't gained any insight or empathy for the LGBT community?

The Author states in the article that neither he, nor the CEO have changed their beliefs at all in this. Empathy? Maybe. But Empathizing with someone and then continuing to fund groups that actively work to deny them marriage isn't worth shit in my eyes.
