NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Is there anybody out there who hasn't heard of a third-rate provider of unhealthy fast food called Chick-fil-A? I certainly hadn't, not until I'd heard that the president of the company had mouthed off about gay marriage -- and how a campaign was afoot to punish the company by banning its outlets.Chick-fil-A President Dan T.

I have no doubt that he knew he would tick off gays, and delight fundamentalist Christians, when he said: "I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.'
