Now you are switching the discussion to whether or not it is legal. Most states have a constitutional ban on same sex marrige. This does not mean the vast majority of the population of that state opposes gay marriage. It means that State laws have not kept up with public opinion.
Sorry, I don't think this is true since most of the laws against same sex marriage are recently passed laws or amendments to state constitutions. It's rather that special interests frighten state legislators and/or that state legislators tend to be conservative. Also a nationwide poll can be pretty meaningless when it comes to a specific state.

Eventually the public will put the real good taste of the chicken before the figurative bad taste left by the owner's charitable donations. I doubt if the taste of the chicken has changed.

Only sales figures matter and I would be surprised if they have dropped significantly.
I would boycott the place except I never ate there before or thought of eating there. Also, I don't know anyone who has eaten there. It's one of those mysterious places to me -- sort of like Applebees -- they stay open and people seem to eat there, but I never know of anyone who eats there. For instance, Denny's. It's not where I would choose to eat, but I have eaten there several times and I know people who have eaten there. So, it's not like I totally avoid crap eating places, yet Chick-a-fil remains a mystery. I kin of doubt that the food is terrific because I never have heard anyone talking about it ever

Ops! I can never get the name of this place right. Chick-Fil-A. Name makes no sense.

I disagree. CFA is still a very contentious issue. Especially considering Dan Cathy, the CEO, keeps opening his mouth and sticking his foot in it.

Not a reflection of the landscape of the country on this issue today. Nor at all. For example, only 19% of people voted on Prop 8 in 2008. Marriage equality was not a mainstream issue in a real way until really the last year.

Seeing that around 200 million Americans oppose gay marriage, doesn't the personal attacks, overblown media reaction and boycott against one business owner seem utterly ridiculous?
No. Highlighting and condemning bad behavior for what it is, is just that.

Quote:
And all the evidence you need about the press pushing it's own agenda?
Facts have a liberal bias.

It's not like he holds an extreme view.
Being against the equality of legal citizens on the basis of who they are is very much extreme. It's wrong.

Democracies are supposed to be about majority rule.
The USA is not a pure democracy. Majority does not have the right to infringe on minorities.

He holds a majority viewpoint, yet the company's targeted as if they were some sort of extremist organization for saying they are against gay marriage.
Well, maybe that's a sign of where popular culture is headed. Seems like a good thing to me

There was some terminology previously that was unacceptable. I have deleted it and the other mods will look at it.

Of course. And with prices so high (in no small part because of the gas prices that skyrocket the cost of transport), I stand by my statement. Unless you want to buy a frozen pizza or a frozen dinner and drink water. It's actually cheaper at McDonald's. They are charging like $6 for a gallon of apple cider here.
