| I think we certainly should do the best we can to uphold our values through our wallets. However, I think that we can get just as carried away with that as with anything else, and trust me, if we took all of this to the n-th degree, we will have to eat at home for EVERY meal. In fact, we'll have to buy some land and raise our own cattle and grow our own veggies. Besides, my guess is that the few boycotters, however well intentioned they may be, do not hurt the corps much if at all - it is only when they are publicly humiliated that they feel real damage. My M.O. these days is to try to eat at Chick-Fil-A as much as possible (grin), but of course they are not open on Sundays, so we go somewhere that's open on Sundays... oops, I think I smell a new can of worms being opened... but I digress... perhaps a better reaction is to try to build positive relationships with these corps to show them the value of supporting decency... I dare say that a heavy hand against the corps has just as much effectiveness as thumping heads with Bibles... now... where's my Starbucks gift-card???
