The owner had a right to say what he said. No one is arguing that he didnt have a first amendment right to say that.
People also have a right to choose where they want to buy a chicken sandwich.
Personally, I think its pretty idiotic to aliennate 50 % of your customers (the 50% who believe gays should be able to marry).
Its his choice. Whether you continue to eat there and support his views, is your choice.
Somebody the other day told me that If I felt that way, I should not buy gasoline any more because Muslims kill homosexuals. I looked at him and proceeded to tell him he was an idiot. First of all, we get the majority of gas from Canada and Mexico. Secondly, I have about 30 different places where I can buy a chicken sandwich. The same 2-3 companies own most of the gas stations. I don't purchase BP at their stations anymore (its easy as they dont have any gas stations in Vegas), so I try to be consistent.
and I agree with much of what TheyDey says. I have never understood why government got involved in marriage anyway. Many of the priveleges can be delineated and enumerated ina contract anyway.
