Starbucks (SBUX +3.5%) declines to comment on a possible boost in sales as the gay and lesbian community calls on supporters to visit SBUX stores as a way to mark today's National Marriage Equality Day. In general, the company has been walking a tightrope between entering the Chick-Fil-A debate and offending customers, but execs probably can't help but wonder what today's same-store sales will look like after indy restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A smashed sales records with its own influx of politically-motivated traffic.
