    Lmao. Show us where? The government can actually carry out due process of the law and still deny them the application to set up shop. That you don't seem to get that little fact is beyond me. Actually, they could say this:

    Sir, we've reviewed your application and have decided to deny it for:

    XYZ

    Thank you, have a good day.

    IOW...slavery was in the best political interest of the state at the time.

    denying a business for political affiliation is not due process of law,once again fasil.

    Personally I am kind of sick of both sides boycotting and ginning up a bunch of faux outrage every time a business owner supports a cause that they don't agree with. I don't agree with Chick-fil-A. However, I would imagine that many of the people that are all up in arms over Chick-fil-A funding religious right efforts to "protect traditional marriage", are wearing clothes made by 3rd world sweat shop labor and frequent businesses with questionable at best labor practices.

    I would have “liked” the OP had it not been for the partisan adhom in the last sentence.

    I hate Chik-fil-A for multiple reasons, not the least of which is their stand on homosexuality and SSM. I’m vegan so obviously I’m no fan of their food either. But their political/religious stance does NOT mean they discriminate. It just means they are bigots. Discriminating against a protected class is illegal. Being a bigot is not. Having a particular political or religious belief does not justify sanctions. It is flat out wrong for the government to try and stop the opening of their restaurants based on their BELIEFS. If they DO something that is illegal or that is against pre-existing zoning laws in a particular community fine, otherwise don’t stand in their way.

    That said, I also have no problem with politicians verbally criticizing a company for bigotry. If the people don’t like the politician for doing it they can vote them out. If they don’t like the bigoted business, they can vote with their dollars.

    So you are saying our DoI is a lie? So if I am taller than you, I am better than you? Taller, stronger, smarter, etc. are not birth defects (neither is being gay). They are products of your genes. Then again, you may not understand evolution and genetics, so why would I waste my time.

    Yeah. That whole "life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness" thing is a croc. America should be the way I intend it to be: white, Christian, Conservative!

    you are allowed to THINK it makes sense but that point is thats your OPINION and nothing more

    the definition of "traditional marriage" is totally subjective and what one makes it, its propaganda to push it on others

    What political affiliation are they denying them for? They could say this: Too many restaurants in X area. Sorry, denying you the application. Again, Chik-Fil-A is within its legal right to apply and the government is within its legal right to deny them the license. That you don't seem to understand that is the only massive failure here.
