    Yes absolutely, they are a hate group.

    under the 14 amendment

    nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

    last part of section one.

    since corporations are viewed under the legal system as people,that makes actions completely illegal.

    also to note choosing and denying business by reason of political support,is seen as one of the corner stones of fascism.

    "State intervention in economic production may take place only where private initiative is lacking or is insufficient, or when are at stakes the political interest of the State.

    right from the fascist playbook,it sickens me democrats demonize fascism yet follow its principles when it fits an agenda.it sickens me even more when they cry for equality,unless someone doesnt fit their agenda,then they suddenly feel equal rights shouldnt apply equally,but only to those who support their agenda.

    It seems that if someone was denied a business licence due to their political views it would be a clear effort by the state to punish unpopular speech. How that wouldn't be a first amendment violation is beyond me

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

    I'm going to stick my neck out here but I suppose MY opinion won't harm anything.

    First let me say that 4 of my closest, most beloved friends are a SSM and SSM couple. The guys have a real live marriage license. I have been periperally involved in gay rights causes since I was a young teen. I strongly believe is SSM and hope to see this injustice vanished while I am still alive.

    That being said, I also strongly believe that a business license is and must be a right as long as zoning and product are appropriate. This type of action is arbitrary and could just as easily be wielded against me when I open Speck-le-Banga Spicy Chicken because I believe all politicians are crooked or our wars are foolish and unjust. I do believe these things and would support a group that held those positions. I still am entitled to a business license.

    Now, you have every right to boycott me for my misanthropic ways. I'm just a mean old man. Don't spend a dime in my place and tweet your stupid friends about me. But you have to give me my damn license or do you say, only give them to your buddies who paid you off. Eh?

When FRC starts hanging homosexuals or killing them in ethnic purges then you'll have an equatable argument. But regardless, the issue is not about the FRC or if Chick Fil A donates to your perceived "hate groups." It's about city governments trying to legally harm a business based on the owner's personal views. This is a violation of freedom.
    I love how you continue to call a claim that gays are child molesters "research". You just can't get enough of defending these guys, can ya? You do realize they want to criminalize homosexuality, right? They want to put me behind bars for being in a same sex relationship. That isn't violent? How are they going to get me behind bars? Are they going to wave a carrot and hope I hop right into my cage?

    Dude, you sicken me. You sit here accusing people of not checking their bias when you leap to the defense of a hate group because you agree with their fundamental position that homosexuality is bad. Good for ya. You got your silly interpretations and beliefs. But don't make yourself into a hypocrite. That just doesn't look good on you.

    Oh, and here is some more "research" from your buddies.

    Gay men are more likely to be pedophiles

    Gay activists are terrorists who “work out of the same playbook” as Islamists

    Gays and lesbians want to “destroy your traditional values”
    http://www.rightwingwatch.org/conten...itional-values

    Gays and lesbians want to “recruit” children into a “lifestyle” of “perversion”
    http://equalitymatters.org/blog/201108190009

    Gays promote an agenda that’s “destructive to our society” and could be the “death nail” of America

    Because that is what loving groups have to say about other people.

    I have said it about twice now. I disagree with the FRC's conclusions and have said that their research is biased, and me calling it research doesn't mean that I somehow claim that gays are child molesters. I'm not defending the views of the FRC, I'm just saying that they aren't a hate group comparable with NeoNazis or the KKK.

    I'm sorry that you find me sickening because I don't support your belief that the FRC is a hate group on par with the KKK and NeoNazis. I don't think you're being rational on this issue, and I would encourage you to reflect on the possibility that you may have some bias. But regardless, I'm done. I have better things to do than try and defend myself against false accusations, straw men attacks and illogically derived conclusions about my beliefs.
