    The CEO is obviously a jackass

    if people want to support his business, fine
    if people want to boycott his business, fine

    he shouldn't be denied a location on government property because of his beliefs as long as he doesnt break the law. He can be a homophobe and bigot all he wants, as long has his restaurant serve and employees all in a legal manner so be it.

    The mayors or whatever should have simply did it the legal way like others do and just denied him and said they feel a another business would fit better there

    Now that they came out and said they dont like hime because of his bigoted ways and THAT is the reason we are denying him they probably set themselves up for failure.

    Then again maybe they just wanted to expose the owner, gains some press for themselves and in the end will allow him and say its because the law says they have to

    Well as someone who was raised by a single parent, I can tell you I never thought or stressed about those things. However, my best friend growing up did think a lot of the time "What if my dad hits my mom too hard?", "What if my mom overdoses on the white powder?",What if my dad crashes the car because he is drunk?", and "What will happen to me if I call the police?".

    Just because a child is being raised by two parents, does not mean it is better than being raised by a single parent.

    It's funny hearing all the conservatives bad mouth the boycott, however, many of them have no problem over boycotting businesses that don't say Merry Christmas.

    Or the Dixie Chiks, or whomever O'Reilly is leading a boycott against this week.

    Nah, he just donates some of his profits to groups that say mean things about homosexuals
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Agree on that one. Boycotting by the individual is fine, I draw the line at government officials doing it using their government power.

    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.
    the term you are looking for is "Chilling Effect"....

    no direct government action needs to be taken for a chilling effect to be present... a mere threat of government sanction is enough to be considered a rights violation.

    there is no substantial difference between saying " do not speak out against SSM or we will throw you in prison" and " do not speak out against SSM or we will deny you a business license".
    no one has been throw in prison, and no one has been denied a business license... but both are threats of sanction and both are intended to stifle free speech/expression.

    No, it's not mean. It's his religion.
