My wife and I go to Chick-fil-A once or twice every couple of weeks. The one that is closest to our house plays Christian rock, or whatever it's called, over the intercom system there. After going there several times since it has opened, I have decided that it bothers me and I have decided to stop eating there because of it.

To set the record straight, I believe that people have the right to practice whatever religion they like. As long as it is not forced on me, then I have no problem with it. That's what bothers me about the music at Chick-fil-A. The owner of that restaurant is imposing his beliefs on me when I eat there. My wife has pointed out several of the lyrics with references to the bible and the words Him, God, and Jesus permeate the music.

On the one hand, I think that if one restaurant decides to play "mainstream" rock, etc., that is their choice. Just like it's this restaurant owner's right to play Christian music. America is founded on being a free country, so what music plays in a restaurant is their right. The same is true for me, I have the right not to give an establishment my business because I don't want to listen to that music.

As I am writing this, I realize it is really not a religious issue. If this particular Chick-fil-A played country music, I would not want to patronize it either.

Any thoughts on this?
