I will be interested to see what the end result of all this will be. Im willing to bet that their business bottom line has actually increased.
    I don't know whether it has increased or decreased and frankly I don't care one way or another. I only speak for what I can spend my money on.

    I would be willing to bet 5 years of salary that this will not break them, however, it could decrese their profits over this I don't know. My only point is that it is people's right to so and in this case I think it is right they boycott it.

    Yep, I think it's perfectly fine, too. But I think their business will actually increase. This has brought them front and center in the news and caused many people to think, "Oh!!! ChickFilA!!! We haven't had one in ages!!"

    That said...this is a company who actively chooses to shut down on Sunday's every week for largely religious motivations, a move that undoubtably causes them profit loss. I have a feeling that while they will be bothered if they lose some profits, which remains to be seen, that they won't necessarily regret their stance nor change it. And I highly doubt it'll be a big enough hit that it significantly changes the business model or likelihood of the chains continued over all success.

    It probably won't be enough to shut them down or cause them to change their stance, but then my goal isn't to shut them down. It just is to not support them with my money and my family also supports that and is doing that as well. If enough people boycott them and it does change their stance, great. If it doesn't, no skin off my back they just don't get my money.

    Its kinda silly to think that the guy will ever 'change his stance' and the company and business operations have never been accused of discriminatory practices (quite the opposite). I am all for that principled stand...I just wonder if hizzoner the Mayor of Chicago has gotten your letter of upset for his willingness to use the gay community as nothing but a token?

    Why would the Mayor of Chicago care about a letter sent from someone in Nevada?

    I dont think CFA has ever gotten my order wrong and the last two orders I had from McDonalds where wrong. They really are one of the best fast food restaurants out there.
