So if she wanted to be a true Mormon and do everything the church wanted her to she'd make them stop serving those drinks. I guess it's ok to be a bigot and hatemonger as long as no one finds out about it. Business if off there about 30% but that may be a combined total of the economy and the boycott. Taco Bell sure is doing great business with their under a dollar menu. Who has money to go eat out all the time and spend $7 on a burrito when you can fill up at a fast food place for two bucks.

I am proud to hear that gay los angelenos stuck to their guns and continued the boycott of that establishment. there are plenty of other places that support us like casita del campo in silverlake. actually, i think that it would be a great thing if a new restaurant opened up with similar theme, but better tasting food. they could have the waitresses in down mexico way dresses just like el coyote. gay los angelenos have to go somewhere to spend the thursday nights, don't they?

Christoffersen, raised Mormon by her late father, told me she has no problem with gay people.

"I love them like everybody else."

Translation: "I just don't want them to be like everybody else."

That article is three months old, doubt the 30% applies to the present. If business has declined, most would be contributed to the economy.
