    The government isn't sending Chik-a-Fil to jail or fining them. Your comparison is invalid. Seriously, read these cases before you speak on them.

    but...but...but.... THAT'S DIFFERENT!!!!!!!!

    they are still denying them under the 14th amendment without due process of law,which is illegal.

By not allowing the business to enter this community, the government has punished a person for an opposing opinion.
    The thing is none of that is happening.


    Chik fil A could easily sue, and win. But because the owner seems like a moral man, I doubt he will. Ya see, people like him aren't into "forcing" their opinions on people, and they aren't into punishing anyone else who thinks gay marriage is super cool. I agree with his opinion, and I think I'll stop by CFA on my way home this evening and show my support.
    Cool but there is no basis to sue.
    And good for you go there and have a sandwich.

    I do business every single day with liberals.
    Well there are a good amount of them in America....

    I know it's shocking, but there are a few liberal business owners.
    Actually there area a lot......

    Despite their messed up social views on a lot of things, they should not be punished for their views and opinions.
    Ok.
    I dont think anyone is advocating that...

    Boycotting over opinions has to be one of the most childish things I've ever heard of.
    Uhhh????
    No.... Its a form of protest. Its actually pretty unchildish...
    I mean boycotting against companies whose companies you disagree with is not "childish"... I mean is boycotting a company who used sweat shops and slave labor "childish"?

    I don't do business with liberals concerning political and social issues, we simply conduct business, and that's great.
    Cool...

    You don't have to agree with me to do business with me, and I don't have to agree with you to do business with you.
    Cool

    It's business. But with liberals.....everything is personal, which is why they are so intollerant to anyone who disagrees with their social values.

    So your saying all liberals arent gong to eat at Chick Filla anymore?

    it does,infact many founding fathers wanted to end slavery under that belief too,however it ended up being slavery was a luxory they couldnt afford to let go(meaning even though many of them opposed it,it was still needed for the economy of the day)

    denying them proper licensing, due to their political views, would be a clear instance of the state trying to punish them. That's a clear violation of the first amendment on it's face

    sorry, champ, merely declaring something isn't an argument
