    I wonder how Rahm will explain it to all the blacks that lose their jobs now after he closes the Chic-fil-a stores.

    I guess there are 14 locations in Illinois. I had no idea. There is even one here in town that I didn't know about. Of course, it's at the State Farm headquarters which I don't work at.

    I would imagine more hispanics work in fast food that black people in Chicago.

    1) it's still completely legal to disagree with miscegenation

    2) spouting stupid, religious fueled, bigotry is still protected by the first, just like outdated views on miscegenation. In fact, it's often argued that these offensive, and unpopular, ideas are the very ones that such legislation is meant to protect. And going by your current standard, views like those those supporting civil rights, gay marriage, and atheism would have been repressed long ago, being that they challenged the very foundations of how society viewed itself, and were originally deeply offensive to the majority

    Yes, but it would be un PC for the hypocritical douchebags to attack black groups that are anti-gay marriage. Which basically very clearly speaks to just how little character those people with their 'values' actually have.

    Homsexuality + race = Genetic factors (those things that you really can't change). How society views itself is not alaways correct and who cares if it is offensive to the majority? Homosexuals cannot really help that which is genetic so to be biased against something like that is asinine.

    And if individuals want to boycott him over that, that's fine. If Da Mayor wants to get up and say, "These values are not Chicago's values.", more power to him.

    Where he falls off the boat is in even suggesting that a disagreement of opinion would, in any way, affect a building permit or business license, or even the normal hoops any similar business would have to jump through to get approved. That's repugnant. That's abuse of power. I'm going to use a phrase that I seldom use because I prefer to reserve it for effect, but here I think it applies because it turns our core values of freedom of independent thought on its head... that's un-American.

    Any repercussions should come solely from individuals... and Da Mayor is included in this definition of individuals... choosing to patronize other businesses and/or speaking their own opinions. Not from official government actions (or implied threat of actions).

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    FTR: I do think Mr Cathy was an idiot for saying what he did... or at least expanding on it to the degree that he did... as his opinion does not necessarily help business, but if he is willing to take the heat, then he at least gets kudos for having the backbone to stand up for his beliefs. Not many people in his position would do so.

    Kind of makes you wonder how many CEOs feel the same way, and we patronize them because we don't know.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I'm not defending those beliefs, but people's right to adopt them, and pointing out the dangers of suppressing (which is the threat here) unpopular political views. Because at one time, gay rights, civil rights for racial minorities and women, and open acceptance of things like atheism were all widely unpopular ideas
