    apparently it only violates someone's rights if you agree with that person's or group's opinion
    What 'rights' have been violated? Unless of course you feel there's a constitutional right to open a restaurant wherever the hell you want to.

    This post is so stupid. The issue is not Chick-Fil-A just "wanting to open a restaurant wherever the hell it wants to", but rather in a proper location just as any other fast-food in that area.

    I wish we could give an award for the dumbest post of the day. You got it !!

    I want to make a clarification. I did not read the source article(which is something I bitch when others don't read them) and missed the fact that it appears that the cities are blocking Chic-Fil-A from opening. If that is what is happening, then that is inappropriate.

    Ald.Proco "Joe" Moreno announced this week that he will block Chick-fil-A's effort to build its second Chicago store, which would be in the Logan Square neighborhood, following company President Dan Cathy's remarks last week that he was "guilty as charged" for supporting the biblical definition of marriage as between a man and woman.
    "Because of this man's ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A's permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward."
    Moreno is relying on a rarely violated Chicago tradition known as aldermanic privilege, which dictates that City Council members defer to the opinion of the ward alderman on local issues.
    Chick-fil-A already has obtained zoning for a restaurant in the 2500 block of North Elston Avenue, but it must seek council approval to divide the land so it can purchase an out lot near Home Depot, Moreno said.

    In case anyone is wondering why this whole deal inspired so much anger, it actually had little to do with the company opposing same sex marriage.

    Cathy openly condemned the beliefs of a big chunk of Chick-fil-A’s audience and he implied their views are unpatriotic and even put the country at risk.

    He went way beyond the typical "my company supports traditional marriage" schtick and went right into the "your beliefs are stupid and you are inviting God's wrath on our country".

    I'm not from Chicago and don't know the power of a city alderman there but the link I provided is to the Chicago Tribune Business section and I assume they know how things work there. According to the Tribune "aldermanic privlege" exists and Moreno has the power to block it. It will only be built if his demands are met.
    ************************************************** **********************************
    Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno says the door isn’t entirely closed on a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening in his 1st ward.

    Moreno told WBEZ that the owners seeking to build the restaurant have said they won’t support any groups with a political agenda, including those with an anti-gay marriage stance.

    Moreno says if he gets an explicit guarantee from the franchise owner he will consider granting zoning rights to a new Chick-fil-A in Logan Square
