The issue with Chick-fuk-a, who I never heard of until 2 days ago, seems to be based not on thier Christianity but on their political positions. We've had "Christian Companies" before and the outcry was much more muted. Dominos Pizza is the one I remember.
So, if a restaurant chain named themselves The Lord Obama Burger, I suppose conservatives would be boycotting them If they named themselves Romney's Rib House, liberals would boycott them. Claiming is has to do with Christianity is just a ploy for sympathy.
If I could find a Chic-fuk-a to boycott - I would. I don't like their attitude. However, if they were denied a business license, I would be in line to protest that decision.
My Momma told me "a little logic goes a long way" but she was wrong.
Given an option between Chick-Fil-A and the Muppets, I'll take the chicken guys.
Unlike with the Chicago's Rahm Emanuel vs Chick Fil A thing, I don't have a problem with this at all. One business severing ties with another business due to a difference in political, social or religious ideologies is perfectly acceptable to me.
"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke

it is one thing to espouse pre-Christian values
it is quite another to demean the sexuality of another
years ago cracker barrel restaurants flagrantly refused to hire gay employees. and a boycott of that restaurant chain by folks who could not support such meanness caused the company to revise its hiring policy
maybe the same response will happen again
