Would You Support a Chick-Fil-A in Novato?

The fast food chain bought the Carl's Jr. site on Rowland Way.

Gay rights activists nationwide went ape a few weeks ago when the president of a fast food chain made statements that he supported only traditional man/woman marriages. 

What if that chain, Chick-Fil-A, opened a restaurant in Novato? 

The Marin Independent Journal reported Monday that Chick-Fil-A has purchased land in town — where the is now on Rowland Way. It might be a few years before Chick-Fil-A takes over, a commercial real estate contact told the IJ.

So, how do you feel about this? Would you protest Chick-Fil-A's presence here? Does the ethics of a distant executive enter into the equation when you have stomach pangs? Share your thoughts below and vote in our poll.

I'd rather have another burger restaurant, like Five Guys or In-n-Out, over Chick-Fil-A. It'd be a "good business strategy" for the bosses from College Park, GA, since it will be a "unique" location in the Bay Area (the closest to San Francisco). However, look into its business practices and views first before judging whether or not that restaurant will survive in the long-run. In a mainly Democrat and affluent Marin County, I think we deserve something better than having a Southern-based chain based on Biblical principles and offers discounts to military personnel (thus there's a Chick-Fil-A in Fairfield: it's close to Travis AFB).

I don't care for FaTS Foods - though when in need and In and Out is sweet! That said, I completely respect the freedom of speech that Chick-Fil-A demonstrated and agree with their stance about protecting marriage between one man and one woman.

To me, it's not as important whether I agree or disagree with the same-sex marriage issue as it is that I strongly support the right of individuals to have and express their opinions and beliefs. Much like the "shouting match" above. While I would disagree with the CEO's opinion, I would also be one of those standing in line to try the sandwich as a show of my support for his right to his opinion.
