The market wins again.
Seems some who enjoy being a party of one keep using terms like 'a majority of us'.
it doesn't mean much to boycott or support a business that isn't in your state or if one is you never have or will set foot in one no matter the issue.
IF Chik felt it was a simple PR problem rather than stop supporting anti-SSM organizations they would have just made announcements that they do not deny employment to gay folks. Their withdrawal of support for anti-SSM organizations seems overkill for just clearing up the hiring policy.
I think it also overstates the action to claim the CEO has changed his mind on risking Gawd's wrath. I'll bet a shiny nickle he still thinks it is so.
DOES show that the Board thinks it is bad for business to funnel money to anti-SSM groups. Businesses are in the business of making money and the Board must feel continuing to fund anti-SSM activities doesn't help the bottomline.
Wonder how the Oreo boycott is going?
Chick-Fil-A doesn't have to change a thing in-order to fulfill their promise to not support hate groups. Chick-Fil-A wasn't supporting hate groups in the first place, and Chick-Fil-A isn't changing it's position on SSM. They're just putting the matter to rest.
If pro-ssm wants to think they "won" something, hey, awesome, get down wit'yo baad self, but Chick-Fil-A will no longer be a rallying cry for pro-ssm.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
