    HA! Obama got a lot of heat – just like Chick-fil-A, which is welcome to evolve just like Obama! Grow Up!

    The mayors of Chicago and Boston declare that Chick-fil=A shouldn’t be allowed to open franchises in those cities. How easily the PC police display contempt for elementary legal rights, such as the First Amendment.

    So, you wouldn’t have any objection to a concentration camp themed fast-food chain named “Adolf’s Nazi Burgers”, right?

    The mayors of Chicago and Boston are just blowing smoke to pander to the PC crowd. Chick-fil-A’s management is entitled to its opinion, and so are you. You don’t want to eat there, you don’t have to.

    “Political correctness” is an affront to the First Amendment, and should be shouted down at every opportunity. All opinions are free to be expressed – and ignored – in the USA.

    Now for my opinion. The mayors of Boston and Chicago are, for lack of a better term, “chickening out”.

    As usual, McCoy gets it 100% wrong. Obama has been a supporter of the LGBT community, even when personally or politically he couldn’t support all their goals, such as marriage equality. That’s a far cry from the head of Chick-fil-a donating substantial amounts of money to groups that want to ban gay marriage and then making a personal statement (which he had to know would be controversial) against it.

    It’s not about being politically correct; it’s about people (including big-city mayors) choosing not to do business with a person or company whose views and political actions they find offensive.

    Surely by the time one ascends to the presidency of the U.S.A., one has become solid in one’s beliefs rather than letting oneself be blown around like a balloon with every political wind.

    Big-city mayors choosing to do business with? You mean that by allowing a store to open, a city is doing business with it? Mayors are entitled to censor opinions by denying the offenders the right to earn a living in their cities? The liberal “mind” is a truly scary thing to behold.

    Really, Morty, you should know better. Sure go ahead. Open it up. Let’s see how well you do. That IS how we do it over here. Individuals will decide if you should continue under that banner. The free market. As it will be shown at Chic-fil-a. People that don’t approve of the CEO’s position are free to not patronize the place.

    However, a government office does not have the right to block the individual from opening up a place of business (as the Boston Mayor later said) using the power of office.

    About 15 years ago, I had a gay friend who worked for Chik-Fil-A for about 2 months. He left because he couldn’t stand the manager constantly asking why he chose homosexuality over “God’s way”. Anecdotal, yes. No lawsuit came out of it and I know of no discrimination lawsuits against the company. I never liked their food, but it is my choice not to patronize them knowing the CEO’s stance on gay marriage. It is also anyone’s choice not to watch the Muppets if they disagree with their support of GLBT’s. The free market will sort this one out. If Chik-Fil-A has lost too many customers due to this, they will fold or change. However, it’s not like it was a secret they were a Christian oriented workplace. This announcement by them was about as surprising to me as when Rob Halford announced he was gay (in other words, how could you not know?).

    Typical CONservative logic. A hate monger is allowed to his opinion, but some one else uses their right to free speach, to speak out against the hate, its suddenly wrong.

    @ScottPM

    One could argue that getting a permit for
    a demonstration (as required by most cities) violates the 1st amendment, also the “free speech zones” of the Bush regime. Then again the country doesn’t want bigamy and is nice enough to check it out for you. They also don’t want relatives marrying each other and produce a populace of bleeding people with strange teeth (as in Britain). So, all in all, marriage licenses might have merits…

    Marriage is not a right. Name a right that requires the government’s permission before you exercise it
    =====
    Marriage is a RELIGIOUS SACRAMENT.
    Keep the government out of it.
