I think he's a great guy. Stands up for what he believes in. Makes me support the business even more.

Except he mea culpa'd at one point, when they started losing money, so he doesn't even have any backbone

Regardless, great food and very well trained and respectable works at a good price. Rare to find.

Most of their restaurants are franchised and locally-owned.

That's disgusting, I'm sorry. Believing that LGBT people are invalid people is not a valid belief, as far as I'm concerned. NO normal person would hold such beliefs. There is nothing respectable about it.

He never said anything bad about gays. He simply stated is opinion which is entirely his right to do. Get over yourself.

There are biggots amongst every community. Christians can be the biggest of them all, especially lately. At one time it wasnt Christian to share a water fountain with colored folk so give it time

That's true. Unfortunately I'm over 5 hours from NYC.

There seem to be plenty of highways in New England that are 65 mph, and those that are 50 or 55 still have traffic going at 65-75. I don't really understand the difference-seems like a weird thing to be jealous of.

I was surprised to see 70 and 75 mph highways down south but I've heard the Cops are not lenient with speeding, whereas in the Northeast there is a 10-15 mph buffer allowed.

I would miss that too! Two of my favorite things about Summer in Philly.
