    alright lemme explain this again,the 14th amendment prevents discrimination without due process of law.supporting an opposing view point is not against due process of law.the 14th amendment allows forthe interest of the state,blocking anyone who doesnt agree with politician is not in the interests of the state,as seen by aclu lawsuits in the past for similiar discrimination.

    corporations areviewed as people under court ruling and the 14th amendment,therefor the first and fourteenth amendment applyu to them.therefore every single argument made by liberals has been founded on emotion and not LAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!this same principle applies to the mosque on ground zero and any other discrimination forbusiness not based off facts towards business itself.

    example i could deny chick fil a for the reason too many restaurants were around,i couldnt deny them for political beliefs,unless they refused to hire minority,gay,etc who were qualified.this is how the law works,not the law works unless i feel it shouldnt because my point of view is supreme hitler style and everyone elses is inferior.

    Minister Louis Farrahkan reopens his Chicago restaurant

    Louis Farrahkan
    July 12, 2012
    By: Wendell Hutson

    The popular Salaam restaurant on Chicago’s South Side reopened on July 1 after closing more than a decade ago and is expected to boost economic development for poor, minority communities.

    On June 27 Minster Louis Farrahkan, leader of the Nation of Islam, met with clergy and religious leaders at the $5 million renovated Salaam to discuss among other things the rebirth of the restaurant.

    Ya gotta love it. Chick-fil-a is bashed over it's anti gay donations and they are criminals and unwelcome in Chicago. Islamic countries like Iran put to death gays and they are totally in line with Chicago values. Simply amazing! Guess we know where Rhambone really stands.

    Am I the only one who realizes that Rahm Emmanuel doesn't actually care about "Chicago values" (LOL)? He just wanted publicity and praise from this. He didn't do this for any actual principles.

    Irrelevant, you do not posture by threatening to do something that the government should not be doing. The fact that Chic-Fil-A donates to groups who support conversion therapy and claims pedophiles are mostly gay makes the company one I do not want to do business with, but the government can't deny them simply because they are stupid and vile. The owner has every right to say stupid **** like "I think we’re inviting God’s judgment when we shake our fist at him, you know, (saying), ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage.’ And I pray on God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we would have the audacity to try and redefine what marriage is all about" and there is nothing the government should do about it.

    People on the other hand can react. We can not buy his products, we can call him out for being an asshole, we can encourage people to not buy his products. The difference is the government vs people.

    sure, but he's also a govt official, and made allusions to distorting the licensing process to punish a company over it's political views. Hence the problem, and correct assertions about it being an attack on the free exercise of political speech

    “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a statement to the Chicago Tribune. “They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents.”
    Emanuel was vowing his support for Alderman Proco Moreno’s announcement that he would block construction of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in his district.

    One of the functions of being a public official is to be (at least seen as a) guardian of the law and the benefits of being a citizen of this country. Free speech falls into that category. This is the same reasoning that leads us to things like prohibitions against uniformed soldiers lobbying for a cause. In certain aspects of life, government officials should appear to be neutral in their official capacity.

    However, in any official capacity, such as in a fund raiser or talking to their friend, they should be seen as private citizens and have the benefits of what they (should in their capacity) seek to protect.

    This is how I judge these types of matters at least, others may disagree with my methods.

    In this case and context, I find what the government of Chicago is doing to be unethical. If they want to lead a private boycott or something like that, more power to them, but they shouldn't do this sort of thing while on the clock so to speak.

    The **** do I care about the owners views? I like their fries, so I will continue to purchase their fries.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Meanwhile, some companies think differently.

    Define "Chicago Values". I grew up in that crime drenched toilet under the iron fist rule of Richard J. Daley, "The Pig". Like him if your opinion doesn't match his you should be forced to leve the country. The political left in America will not tolearate any opinions other than their own much like Stalin and Mao.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.
