Ah, well that makes more sense.

I have members of my family I don't speak to any more because of their racist statements. That's just a "difference of opinion" on one topic, too.
I would, personally; there's people I'm close to who have disgusting or infuriating opinions on certain subjects, but, well, I try to shove that aside and forget about it because I care about the person, and our relationship is more important to me than the fact that I adamantly disagree with them on certain topics. I think it's totally understandable for people to be less forgiving of such things than I am, but I wouldn't say that associating with someone who said something terrible reflects poorly on the non-guilty party; I haven't outright abandoned friends or family for saying things that I vehemently disagree with and which seriously piss me off, and so I wouldn't really expect other people to either.
