    While I support individuals boycotting Chik-Fil-A I do not support government officials using their powers to prevent this restraunt from coming in.

    It's just as bad when government officials have gotten involved with strip clubs and preventing them from coming into places.

    There are people who are organizing an Eat and Chick-fil-A day (probably several).

    I think that's as stupid as the boycotts.

    I like Chick-fil-A. I'll eat there when I choose to eat there. I'm not going to stop eating there because someone wants me to; nor am I going to go because someone wants me to.

    Like I said, those who politicize every aspect of their lives must be miserable, uptight people. I choose not to be.
    It's not "tolerance" if you already approve of what you purport to "tolerate."

    their effectiveness is irrelevant. What is relevant is the fact that it would be leverage as a punitive measure

    Seems really stupid on his part to start this conversation for nothing.
    hyperbole to fire up the base.

    and if push comes to shove they will probably fail because unless theres some BS loophole they can bury this is, its unfair discrimination but its not an infringement of free speech

    Don't necessarily need a loophole. They can use bureaucracy to slow it down or downright stop it. Just grind the permitting process to halt. It is Chicago after all.

    Absolutely, they can do this. But it would be just as repugnant... if not more so.

    I've actually realized I've had a fair bit of Chick-Fil-A the past few days. Not because of any kind of concerted effort...just kind of happened. Though I can't deny that seeing talk about it each day has made me go "mmmmm....chicken sandwich"

    I'll pick up your slack. I've never eaten there and HATE the spelling of their name, but I keep hearing/reading that the food is great.
