The debate over same-sex marriage shouldn't be reduced to a question of whether or not to buy a chicken sandwich — but it has.
Multitudes of evangelical Christians and others flocked to Chick-fil-A restaurants Wednesday to eat in support of the chain's president, who has been vilified for voicing his opposition to gay marriage.
Meanwhile, multitudes of same-sex marriage supporters are organizing a national kiss-in Friday at the restaurants.
Each demonstration should be viewed as Americans exercising their free-speech rights to express an opinion on this particular subject. More power to them.
