You think? Prices are pretty reasonable to me. I seem to spend about the same amount at McDonald's, Burger King, Subway, Arby's, etc.

They used to donate heavily to multiple groups which were anti-gay.
Today? It looks like the only remaining complaint is regarding donations to Fellowship of Christian Athletes which includes a condemnation of both pre-marital sex and homosexual sex for its members.

They're a private group, so people can choose.
IMO, it's no more of a problem than private donations to BSA back when they excluded gays.

Unfortunately, some people still have a bone to pick with them...




I don't think the concer here is the protest itself...

The issue here is that it's a TAXPAID ELECTED OFFICIAL...

A tax paid official telling people in his city to not patronize businesses in his city.

Yes, something is seriously wrong with that.

Funny how the guy who thanked you for your post kind of disproved your comment here.

There are some for whom there is a concern over "the protest itself".

Some are.
Just like some on the right can't let it go that gays can get married without their approval / disapproval.

Most have moved on. Trying to equivocate "the left" onto this politician's comments is quite the stereo-typing feat...

That's one of the issues.
And while I personally don't like his comments on the issue, isn't it free speech?
Has he broken any laws?

Remember when Martin Shkreli hiked the HIV drug prices and politicians were making comments regarding him and what he did? He was called to testify before Congress?
Where was the outrage then over politician comments on business? That went quite a bit further than just comments...

I find it interesting that the right-wing has no problem making political fodder out of a group of people (e.g. gays, transgender, etc) and limiting their rights.
But advise people they shouldn't eat at a restaurant? OMG! How could they!

Some people really have their head screwed on backwards when it comes to the importance of business vs people.

Question Re: Don't Go to Chick-Fil-A, Mayor De Blasio Tells New Yorkers

Am I the only one around who goes to restaurants and stores etc. because of the price and quality (taste etc.) of their merchandise rather than the politics, religion, race and planet that the owner came from etc. ?
