    It was a publicity stunt called by Democrats to deal with Obama reversing himself on gay marriage. It was not Chik-a-filia that called the press conferences or for rallies/protests.

    Because it isn't just a "belief"....it is a belief rooted in bigotry, plain and simple. And while you are right that opinions are still legal in the U.S., I have found that most of those complaining about "infringements on their first amendment rights" are usually REALLY complaining about living with the consequences of their ignorant or bigoted speech.

    For one day. Obviously that one day was offset by a steep decline in business that led to this decision.

    There is nothing obvious to it. Link to some proof of business decline if you aren't just transposing your own money-is-everything morality upon everyone else.

    I can't say I've ever eaten at one (there aren't any currently in New England), but I will definitely avoid any I come across because of this change of viewpoint.
