The Chick-fil-A in Huntsville, Alabama reports a booming business despite the controversy over the owner's "shocking" support of traditional marriage. Many people have been going out of their way to lend their support to the popular chicken franchise.
Apparently, first amendment rights and religious tolerance does not mean much if one's position happens to be for traditional marriage.
Interestingly, the belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman has recently become a "homophobic" bigoted stance; yet when President Obama held this very same position, (before he "evolved") there was no discussion in the mainstream media four short years ago about how the president was "anti-gay".
The local news in Huntsville reports that "Many said they like the restaurant and came to support Cathy's beliefs, particularly after the broad criticism they've garnered." After the ridiculous backlash from some groups to boycott Chick-fil-A, in addition to some even trying to block the franchise from operating in their respective towns, all of the publicity most likely will not hurt business.
In Huntsville, Alabama, at least, the boycotts and bullying are having the opposite effect. Business is booming.
