    What makes you confident that we will "know soon?"

    @Ddyad, did you hear about Chick-Fil-A's donation to the SPLC?

    I did a quick Google search. The effort to damage CFA is even more widespread than I had suspected.

    "Fast food isn't supposed to be as polarizing as Chick-fil-A. But when Chick-fil-A comes to town, so does controversy and protest. England recently got a fresh taste of this controversy, and things have not ended well for Chick-fil-A. After a week of protests from LGBTQ supporters, their landlord announced it would not renew the chain's lease. Chick-fil-A will stay for their 6 month lease in the Reading, England shopping mall. But they will have to find a new home for their first European restaurant after that. Protesters have pledged to picket the restaurant as long as it is open."

    Seriously, I wondered about that percentage of LGBT. Still, you have to admit, it's a very small portion of the population. Others may play around with it, but few are truly LGBT by those numbers.

    CFA will probably let us know if they suffer a revenue drop and their competition makes gains.

    Bad news from CFA will be bad news for South Park's Cows. ;-)

    I found more examples than I expected with a quick search.

    I can see why CFA wanted to get these aggressive activists to stop attacking their business.

    No. That would be another mistake.

    Why do you mention this one?

    Yeah, from what you've presented, it certainly looks like they had some pressure to cave to. It's just that normally when companies cave to the left, it is shortly after the start of a massive centralised campaign against the company. So this may be an unusual 'caving' case.

    I was copy/pasting the first few links to CFA protests. I clearly captured the Paris protests by mistake. It was probably above or below a url that I wanted. I was hurrying to get that post off - sorry for the error.
