    Since you've been broadcasting that all over here let's you and I get busy and do something about that by contacting our two Senators and Representative to change that so that they ARE protected. Are you with me on that?

    They have the same protections as straight people but if you want to give the special rights I will help you if you give it to Christians also.

    they may still have a civil remedy based on the polices of the franchise. At least, against individuals staff members if they can prove they violated the policy. The franchise not so much.

    There is no proof that they were discriminated against because they were gay.

    One employee made a statement, he was probably pissed because he got stuck working the counter or something.
