Activists for gay marriage are engaging in an all-out push to boycott businesses that speak out, or help fund traditional marrige policies. Chick-Fil-A franchaises, and a bakery in Colorado have been the primary focus for both activists and politicians such Chicago mayor Rahm Emmanuel.
Fortunately for American pragmatism, the boycotts appear to have backfired as business and revenues for both companies have soared since they were pushed into the crosshairs of militant gay rights protesters.

And in Lakewood, Colorado:
The owner of a cake shop in Lakewood, Colorado said that, following a refusal to provide a wedding cake for a homosexual couple his business has more than doubled.
Jack Phillips, the owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, told local media that this wasn’t the first time he had turned away homosexuals seeking wedding cakes, but it is the first time his stand for Christian principles has resulted in so much media attention and some death threats. - Lifesite
Gay rights advocates love to say that traditional Americans want to discriminate and keep homosexuals from their fair rights in society. However, the underlying truth is, no one really cares if those with alternative lifestyles get naked and howl at the moon. It is only when they choose to do so in someone else's yard, as seen by the militant stances against Chick-Fil-A and other businesses, that people begin to draw a line in the sand and use the power of their wallets to repel the nonsense of others.
