Dear Collegeville Mom...you are insisting on saying this is about the belief or non belief in gay marriage. It is about the freedom to believe it or not to believe it. I do and have always had gay friends and would be disappointed if they did not see the difference. And yes, they do know how I feel. We can agree to disagree simply because I don't believe in it, does not mean I do not respect them. We just have a difference of opinion. If you had a health store business and I knew you were gay, would I have the right to call all my heterosexual friends and force your store to close. I would have the right, but it would not have crossed my mind for a nanosecond to do so. Still don't get it???

Jesus said we as christians are to be the salt of the earth and not go where ever the crowd takes us. Be a God pleaser and not a man pleaser

The fact that CFA has never been open on Sunday because the "family owned business" believes people should be free to worship if they choose, has never been a secret. Mr. Cathy does not discriminate in hiring nor serving anyone on any basis. I took my mother to Olive Garden quite a few years ago and there were two waiters setting the same table, rubbing butts and practically falling all over each other. Mom leaned over and said, "They must be gay." I just laughed and said, "You think?" It never entered my mind to complain to anyone, or to not return to Olive Garden. My only thought was that the over zealous PDA in front of customers is distasteful for ANY couple. I have a feeling that CFA's investors will be fine.
