Want fries with that?

I haven't eaten at Chick-fil-A, so I was just recently made aware that they perform weddings in addition to serving food. Apparently, gay couples are being discriminated against in favor of all of the straight people who wish to exchange vows over a chicken dinner.

If only Chick-fil-A didn't actually discriminate against its patrons. If only they didn't force their employees to confirm the sexual orientation of each customer prior to taking an order. If only the owners of Chick-fil-A had merely expressed a personal view on a hot-button issue, rather than instituting policies throughout their restaurants to turn gays away at the door and to ban gay weddings under Chick-fil-A's roof. If only Chick-fil-A hadn't surpassed Walt Disney World as the straight wedding location of choice.

Don't worry, Disney. The First Amendment is taking a back seat on this one. With the zoning shenanigans and other politics obstructing new Chick-fil-A restaurants, you'll soon be back on top.
