Not really. He's just another person.

It depends.

Does he just think xyz, or does he donate money/time to support xyz.

I'm not going to spend money with a company that's going to use that money to support things I hate.

For instance, the gym chain "Curves" partnered with th anti-homosexual, pro-life "American Family Association". I don't want to support these things, so I will go to another gym rather than to Curves.

That. I don't like the idea of indirectly (but obviously) funding political radicals, religious nuts or other people/organisations I'd just hope that weren't there at all.

I don't mind what people think or do with their money.

Sometimes. Let's say I go to an organic joint and they have 100% organic burgers, but their juice is a (non organic) concentrate, and their sauces are (non organic) and prepackaged, that is going to bother me.

I will not visit them again.

If the company (I guess we all know who we're talking about here) actively supports something of which I don't approve, I won't trade with them. If just a tiny percentage of what I pay for my fast food goes to, say, teabaggers or other fundies, I'll eat somewhere else.

If I were to edit out any company that violated my sense of ethics, here is the list of companies I would be able to purchase from:

As there's obviously a mix of petrol from different sources in the US I suggest you all just quit using it.
After all you're simultaneously sponsoring OPEC AND the country of legal abortion! Lose-Lose-situation.

I'm usually out of touch with CEO's. I care if my direct supervisor is an asshole because I am the worker. But somebody that far up, well, I don't care if he's an asshole. He probably doesn't influence the "ethics" of a supermarket.
