    re: Rahm: “Chick-fil-A Values Are Not Chicago Values” [W:698]

    Ya know im just going out on a limb here but an orgainization that spreads around false information stating that a certain group of people is harmful to society, more likely to molest children, doesnt raise children as well as other groups, doesnt support the equal treatment of that group under that law (quote from their website "We oppose the vigorous efforts of homosexual activists to demand that homosexuality be accepted as equivalent to heterosexuality in law, in the media, and in schools." Human Sexuality Research Area) is probably not saying those things out of love for that group of people.

    I would think it pointless and foolish, like I think gay conversion camps are pointless and foolish...but I wouldn't consider them a hate group.

    `but is it illegal for them to do so?

    if john q public wants to boycott chik-fil-a because they disagree with who they support with their money that is fine. but for the govt to deny them a license to run a legal business because of it is another thing.

    until the govt passes a law that makes it illegal to support anti-gay organizations, it should not be allowed to deny them based on such support.

    Once again, freedom of speech only matters if you agree with liberal indoctrination.

    so should the govt, therefore, be allowed to deny business licenses to christian bookstores?

    Of course it isnt illegal for them to voice their opinion. Nor do I think Chicago should stop CFA from opening more restaurants.

    The government can deny business licenses to anyone it wants. A business license is not a guaranteed right.

    when the govt discriminates against someone based soley on said speech, it is an infringement upon free speech.

    if this is not an infringement on free speech....then how can voter ID laws be an infringement on the right to vote?

    if people want to boycott, that's fine, but the govt shouldn't be able to punish you for legal speech...no matter how stupid it is.

    So are you ok with some hick town denying a business license to black people based on race? Or what about a tiny country town that won't give a business license to atheists?
