Yeah, it's never been a secret, but I think it's more then that people are surprised overall, then just reacting to 'Woah, can't believe he went there.' Because when you don't talk about things people tend to look the other way but the minute you open your mouth, suddenly there's a controversy.

Also, the gay thing has been a hot topic lately. It's an election year and Obama's suddenly for gay marriage (surprise surprise). Anything they can dig up against people to make them seem crazy...well, you betcha they're going to do it.

As for the reaction in different areas...you live in the South, so (forgive me for generalizing here) probably people are reacting in a more positive way to Chikfila in your area than in an area like mine (Remember...my state just legalized gay marriage, and my state is (sadly) controlled by democrats.)

Anyway, I don't care for the beliefs, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to eat there. I enjoy their food and friendly customer service too much to protest.

My favorite part about all that was that his stance on the issue has "evolved". Anyone else would be called a pandering flip-flopper. I notice it's only when your opinion moves to the left that you "evolve".

I'll admit there are some businesses/celebrities I don't patronize because of their beliefs (not many, but some), but I'd never say that they shouldn't exist or deny them the opportunity to make a living in a free marketplace. I just spend my money elsewhere like a sane person.
