Cracker Barrel's journey a microcosm of what Gay Pride Month celebrates

When word reached the corporate offices of Cracker Barrel last week that an anti-LGBTQ pastor and his group planned an event at one of its restaurants in Tennessee, the company released a sharply worded statement barring them. “We serve everyone who walks through our doors with genuine hospitality, not hate, and require all guests to do the same,” it said. That a sign of the changes since the restaurant chain banned gay and lesbian employees in 1991.
