    Neither mayor has legal grounds to deny Chick-Fil a from opening in their city limits. They've done NOTHING illegal. If permitting and what not are held up, they'll rightfully get sued. Nothing more than Menino and Emmanuel chest thumping.

    Let the customers vote with their wallets. I'd wager that Chick-Fila isn't going anywhere.

    I would have issues with my government stating "we will deny your resturant specifically a business liscense simply because we dislike your opinion regarding a law". If his reasoning for opposing that law was clearly stated as religious in nature, I'd have even larger issue with it.

    Last I checked, the CEO of Chuck E. Cheese isn't police chief of the DA, so I don't give much of a care about his opinion on statuory rape. I have a care about whether or not his resturants have decent games, a fun ball pit, and if they've improved their cardboard tasting pizza since I was a kid.

    Now, if the city just decided to ban all pizza establishments for some reason...at least then it's not discriminating and is just stupid. I wouldn't support it, but I wouldn't feel that it's inherently wrong either.

    They both have the same basic effect of punishing the individual.

    One is significantly more EFFECTIVE or has a LARGER effect. But at its core...yes, they're both punishing the individual.

    If I give you a dollar or I give you $1000, it's correct to say that "The effect of both is that you are richer than you previously were". That doesn't mean that the level of that effect is equal, only that it's baseline outcome is.

    People eat at CFA because they like the food. If the food sucked people would not eat there no matter how much they agree with policy.

    These decisions can be challenged in court if they are made in an arbitrary and capricious manner, as would be the case if they were turned down only because of the company president's view on gay marriage.

    BTW, Rahm recently welcomed Louis Farrakhan to Chicago, so he seems to have no problem with Farrakhan's view on gay marrage (very much against) or gays (he loves them but thinks they're sick, degenerate, sinful, and headed for Hell).

    But you see, thats CONSISTENT. PC is ALWAYS a part of Rahm Emmanuels values and embracing black groups is ALWAYS a good thing. Speaking OUT against Farrakhan (or lets be honest...ANY black groups that dont accept gay marriage) and denying him access to the city because their position on homosexuals would be a blow politically...cant risk losing those votes. THATS what its all about, which completely witnesses and testifies to the absolute lack of 'values' they have.

    Fairly certain a few people have proclaimed they planned to eat at CFA more because of their stance

    The key word being "more".... They already eat there because they like the food.

    I haven't seen anyone here say "chik-fil-a's food sucks but I'm gonna eat there anyway because they hate gays"

    There is a local fast food chain in my area called "Jack's". I think their food is horrible. If they came out tomorrow and supported the idea that miltary vet's shouldn't pay income tax, I still wouldn't eat there.

    The government action is what surpresses free speech.

    That is the same effect here.

    The government is trying to scare people into not saying what they feel out of fear of government action against them.
    arresting somebody and putting them in prison is NOT the same LOL because the argument is they are no longer free at all and cant voice their opinion to anybody but the walls in their cell

    also how do you know the "government" (some mayors that will lose if push comes to shove) are trying to "scare" people. What proof of that do you have? thats more hyperbole just like the OP.

    What they are doing is wrong IMO but the CEOs free speech is still intact.

    this is NOT the same at all, these guys are trying something that is wrong and they are discriminating against them unfairly which is wrong but their speech is not infringed. a handful of people and the OP can try and make that connection if they want buts its a failed one.
