What happened to free speech?

Regarding the Wednesday article, “Chick-fil-A won’t fund anti-gay campaigns”: Since when do groups like Civil Rights Agenda and Equality Matters and on and on have the right to dictate who can oppose them? Apparently, it’s acceptable to have a “politically correct” opinion, but it is not acceptable to have an opposing politically incorrect opinion. Wake up America — allowing this mentality to prevail will be the downfall of America. Eventually, the “gray area in the middle” will expand to the point where right and wrong are just small strips of black and white on the ends. Actually, it’s pretty close to that now.
