The protests we've seen in the news of Chick-fil-A are absolutely ridiculous. Regardless of the stance you may take on the issue, not only do the people in charge of the restaurant have a constitutional right to have their political viewpoint on tradtional heterosexual marriage, but by protesting Chick-fil-A stores and refusing to eat there, you are only hurting the franchise owners who are just trying to do their diligence in running a local small business. Not to mention that the franchise owners just may have very different views than corporate - who knows?
Either way, a business should not suffer financially because they have a view. Chick-fil-A is obviously a Christian company. They close on Sundays to observe religious holidays. It isn't breaking news that they have a conservative, Christian outlook on life in the United States, and everyone has their right to free speech under the First Amendment, as well as the freedom of religion, and a right to free enterprise.
Chick-fil-A has also held spirit nights during which they donate a portion of the night's profits to local organizations in Winchester and Northern Virginia counties. As you read this, I'm sure you can name a few organizations that have benefited from their generosity.
Go to Chik-fil-A and enjoy a chicken sandwich with the family and show Chick-fil-A that they were there for us, and now we're there for them, and spread the words to your friends and family in the area that Chick-fil-A is not evil for choosing a viewpoint.
