A Note For Whoever:
- Coffee shops are neither gun ranges nor the U. N. Small Arms Treaty group.
- Fast-food joints don't control who can marry.
The people who own such businesses? They have the same right to their opinions (including the right to withhold comment) as anyone else.
And you shouldn't be suggesting using the power, authority and force of the State to shut them down because of it. Should you be flocking there or boycotting (or being indifferent), depending on your very own personal opinion? Sure!
(Hell, I don't even agree with the Chik-fil-A guy about who deserves to be gettin' wedlocked* and I still enjoy their products. He's not in the marriage business, nor the opinion business, either.)
* Y'know what? I'm startin' to think the bar is way too low. The more I hear arguments against lettin' some folks marry, the more I wonder if State-sanctioned marriage should maybe be a whole lot more difficult for any couple to commit. At the very least, a couple of years of cohabitating solemnized by a non-government-sanctioned ceremony or agreement ought to be a prerequisite to getting a license. There's a whole pile of nice bennies to be had; maybe you otta prove you deserve them first.
