Mike Huckabee asked all right-wing conservative Christians to eat there yesterday, to show support for the strong stand they have taken against homosexuality, especially against gay marriage. Homosexual activists also made appearances there nationally, as protesters. The local traffic jams were huge. Local TV showed footage from several locations, making it look as if everyone entering these places was taking a stand on the issue. Faces were not hidden.
One local gay male protester took the standard "Eat More Chicken" sign and made it say, "Eat More Dick".
I strongly prefer restaurants that think they exist only to SERVE FOOD to paying customers, and to treat their employees based only on the way they do their jobs, which is all about SERVING FOOD. :mad: What part of this is hard for that CEO to understand?
Ironically, this chain has its headquarters in Atlanta (HotLanta), which is the second or third most morally liberal city in the American South. People move there to get away from judgmental control freaks.
If this idiot gets his way, we will soon end up with separate restaurants (and other businesses?) for social liberals and conservatives, and everything in life will be all about politics and religion, including making ordinary purchases.
