I’ve already made it quite clear that folks who boycott a restaurant because they don’t like the company’s business model are free to do so, and that mayors of cities who object to the company and their beliefs are going over the line when they say they don’t want them in their town. (I have a number of progressive friends who disagree with me on that point. Fine. That’s what healthy debate is all about.)
What I find supremely ironic is that the same people who are yammering about the First Amendment and freedom of religion have absolutely no problem whatsoever trampling on the First Amendment rights of my religious denomination — the Quakers — to celebrate same-sex marriage. And we’re not alone in holding that all couples, regardless of body parts, have the right to live their lives as they see fit in the way they believe was intended for them by whatever god or higher authority — or none whatsoever. But apparently we need to open a fast-food chain in order to get our message of inclusiveness out there.
