Quote
     Dear Cracker Barrel Customer:
When we made the decision to remove and evaluate certain Duck Dynasty items, we offended many of our loyal customers. Our intent was to avoid offending, but that’s just what we’ve done.
You told us we made a mistake. And, you weren’t shy about it. You wrote, you called and you took to social media to express your thoughts and feelings. You flat out told us we were wrong.
We listened.
Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores.
And, we apologize for offending you.
We respect all individuals right to express their beliefs. We certainly did not mean to have anyone think different.
We sincerely hope you will continue to be part of our Cracker Barrel family.

First rule of business - know your customer. The New York and Left Coast elite screaming about DD are not Cracker Barrel customers......

Father O'Brien told us that intent on doing something wrong is a sin in itself.

Cracker Barrel needs to realize that pissing off 90% of society in favor of the 10% who are homosexual was stupid...on a business level.

It's not even ten percent, more like less than five. Cracker Barrel really made a bonehead move, who the hell made this initial decision? That person, or people, are just clueless.

This is not related to DD still important in the scheme of things...

We had our yearly HOA meeting last week.  Several of us were wondering why we had no lights outside for Christmas, so I asked the question.  I was told by the GAY property manager, not affiliated with the HOA side of the complex that the lights wuld cause moral conflict!!  Now, the property we live at, has a harbor master and an expensive restaurant on our property. Both places put out beautiful decorations, but the condo complex itself did not.  I told this jerk that he was in SC and we were God fearing Christians, and he was not in California or NYC.  He shut up and couldn't answer our question after that. At which time the board said that next Christmas we would have the outdoor lighting!!!
This is how it goes with a leftist in charge!! :thud:

Actually, it is not even 5%.  Except for those who want to drive an agenda, the accepted number is about 2% give or take a bit.
