Christians taking a stand for Godly values.

Chick-fil-A Has 'Record-Setting' Sales on Appreciation Day when people got out enmass in support of Chick-fil-A CEO, Dan Cathy, who did not shirk away from saying that he does not support the redefinition of marriage to include same gender marriages.

The CEO was informed by four different mayors that his business would be banned from their cities due to comments he made to the Baptist Press supporting "the biblical definition of the family unit."

I think, people of faith should have right to not participate in anything they see as against their belief.
I use to own a gift shop in a mall here in South Texas (Catholic country), I know I was missing a lot of business for not carrying statues of Jesus and virgin Mary. But I could never change my mind about it, ended up loosing that business and go through difficulty but never regret a bit. Making, buying selling erecting adoring or worshiping idols is forbidden in Islam and I live by it. I believe we all have right to feel free to practice what we believe as long as we don't harm anyone while doing so.

Honeto, I agree, unless of course your job involves something that is against your beliefs.  In that case you probably should not be in that job.
