La Cuisine is located in downtown Ocala. A French restaurant, it offers a fine ambiance and excellent food. Patrick, the gentleman in the photograph, is a partner in the business and notes they've been in operation for three years. During that time they have received the prestigious "Golden Spoon Award" from Florida Trend. We wish them many more years of success in Ocala.

One of the nice things about Ocala is that we still have various tracts of land, as well as large and small horse farms, within the city.
This area consists of homes on acreage and some small horse farms and is located just a few blocks from a major artery.

Then a famous (or infamous) evangelical Baptist preacher/cum FOX News commentator suggested the establishment of a "Support Chik-fil-A Day" or some such thing. Some fundamentalist Christians gathered around Chik-fil-A outlets to show their support for the anti-gay marriage stance.
To counter the supporters, pro-gay marriage people have been busy organizing boycotts of the chain as well as setting up their own protests.
And so it goes. Certainly, the Chik-fil-A owner has a right to his opinion and the mayors were wrong in threatening to disallow him to do business in their towns. The protestors also have a right to disagree with the Chik-fil-A stance. They can march and shout and carry on but I think that's not ultimately effective. The best thing they can do is not eat at Chik-fil-A and enlist their friends to shun the chain.
If a Chik-fil-A outlet should discriminate against people because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, etc., then that's a horse of a different color and we have laws to deal with such discrimination.
Maybe what we need in this country is for people to shut up if they can't say something that is helpful, healing and contributes to the building of community. And that goes for both sides!
