To be honest, this is unsurprising. ChikFilA has been closed on Sundays since they first opened and done things like overtly christian books in kids' meals, due to the fundamentalist stances of its founder. Cathy is a private citizen, owns a private company, and has long had these views. It's like the whole world just got a news flash about this, but it has been there the whole time. I was not surprised, nor incensed by this. It was an expected turn of events, using a political hot potato to drive business during an election year. I was only surprised that people flocked to support what was said for 'first amendment rights'. If someone was there for the rights Mr. Cathy has to say whatever he wants (regardless of how some of the public feels about it), they should have carried a sign that said; "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." attributed to Voltaire.
