These people have been on a massive ego kick ever since they successfully ran Dr. Laura off of TV. Getting Cracker Barrel to cave on their no gays policy only emboldened them more.
They are not going away. After being humiliated like this they are going to double-down and start scouring the countryside for little “gotchas” to try and take down this company.
If I were Mr. Cathy I would start coming up with an alternate business plan for any of my stores which were located on college campuses where they required any kind of support from university administrators. That is the weakest link, and Queer Nation will go right after it.
We only started going to Chik-Fil-A since a new one came to the town fairly near us. From now on, it will be first choice whenever we’re in that town.
The weak link for the other side when it comes to CFAs presence on campuses are the alumni.
My wife is an alumnae of a good sized, fairly Liberal, public university. That Thurs/Friday the Univ. President issued a statement saying that he and his administration were reviewing the contracts with CFA, strongly inferring that hecwas doing so with an eye to throwing them off.
The alumni discussion groups and FB pages went berserk with threats to cut off donations. By Monday the univ pres had managed to discover a little thing called the “1st Amendment” and publically backed down.
