    Simply because Chick-Fil-A's owner's views are unethical doesn't make the act of government officials to ban them from engaging in purely legal efforts simply due to their religious belief any less ethical.



    The 1st amendment guarantee's one the right to build a house of worship wherever one wishes regardless of building permits, zoning laws, etc?
    basically he is OK with denying someone their rights because you disagree with them...as long as your "stated" reason is politically correct and acceptable.

    Why are you comparing infringement of the 1st amendment to infringement of the non-existent right to a business license?
    because the denial is based on their promotion of unpopular political ideas

    Can you tell us all what is illegal about denying a business license?

    The 1st amendment guarantee's one the right to build a house of worship wherever one wishes regardless of building permits, zoning laws, etc?
    Uh - wha!?! Sorry - wait... You lost me in the gibberish. There is no such law. Actually, I've argued excessively before that the first amendment grants you the right to worship. It doesn't grant you the right to set up a church anywhere you want.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    So, then, tyranny of the majority.

    so your saying you cant refute this in any way but are so adamant on your belief you believe your right reguardless of evidence,constitutional law,and the 14th amendment.

    btw an anology compares similiar situations through comparison,not similiar situations only if you agree with them,keep trying,but so far no cigar.

    but i think ill light my kyrgistan cigar.
