Will People Who Eat At Chick-fil-A Stop Shopping On Amazon

Chick-fil-A has gotten heat for it's CEO's comments about marriage.  From today's New York Times,
Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of, and his wife, MacKenzie, have agreed to donate $2.5 million to help pass a same-sex marriage referendum in Washington State, instantly becoming among the largest financial backers of gay marriage rights in the country.

With the gift, the couple have doubled the money available to the proponents of Referendum 74, which would legalize same-sex marriage in the state by affirming a law that passed the Legislature this year. Courts or lawmakers have declared gay marriage legal in six other states, but backers of such measures have never succeeded at the ballot box.

Proponents of the effort in Washington State called it a game-changing gift that gives them a fighting chance in November.
Barnes and Noble and Popeye's are waiting for a decision.

NRP had a story about this tonight. Several groups protested JC Penny when they hired Ellen DeGeneres. The same groups have protested Starbucks and others that have announced support for Same-sex marriage. They don't really know the impact financially this has had.
