Here's a little something that is going to stir up a lot of emotion. For your viewing pleasure:

Sounds to me like a simple case of some idiot with their own agenda refusing to allow it. Olive Garden says they have no policy against the flag.

Why did she want to bring it in anyways? Olive Garden has a right to display what they want to.Blog: Hidden Content

I like olive garden's food. It is one of my favorite restaurants. I always order the eggplant parsmesean w/o cheese. But getting back to the topic at hand I respect olive garden's decision not to be bullied in to putting up a flag if that particular store didn't want one up. Some of us like to go out with our families for a nice dining experience and not to have someone's politicial/religious beliefs thrown up in our face. (I get plenty of that here). What's next someone is going to have a fit because a place of public accomodation will not allow them to post a crucifix for everyone to see?

And how do you turn a dumb story about some employee who is probably already fired by now into a debate about religion? Someone hanging an American flag and someone hanging a cross are entirely different points.
Don't take this post OT.

Not trying to take the post off topic but it's the same principal. Olive garden is a family restaurant designed to serve all people regardles of their color, nationality, religion, etc. The american flag just like a cross are 2 symbols that mean different things to different people. Some people are indefferent to them but most people either love them or hate them. Olive garden wanted to keep their restaurants a comfortable place for all of their patrons regardless of their personal beliefs. I see nothing at all wrong with that.
