    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Stay classy.

That Chick-flic-a brand, the sign, the logo may inspire feelings of oppression, disgust, nausea... just like the sign for a strip club or adult book store, or a Nazi flag. A community has the right to say, we don't want your business here.

    Now, withholding permits is a different issue. I agree, a mayor has to tread lightly. A government entity should not take direct action unless they can show a conflict or interest in the community, as with strip clubs and adult book stores.

    But a community has the right to speak up at a board meeting, permit hearing, whatever and voice concerns. The City of Chicago has the right to say, 'We don't like you and we wish you were not in our town.' And the mayor can speak for the people. He was elected to do so.
    I have no problems with the mayors of these towns calling Cathy an idiot for his beliefs and/or statements. I take issue if they refuse to issue a business license because of his statements as it's been reported they have done. The latter I consider reprisal.
    From the ashes.

    Watch what you say, the invisible man in the sky smited the VP of Chik-flic-a today, coincidentally with a heart attack.

    The big guy has spoken and he don't like homophobes. Perhaps you all better stop, or at least stop calling yourself 'christians'...

    I agree with that. They could get in some trouble on that one.

    Apparently, you're not new, but your discourse intended to convince anyone of maturity while resorting to what seems your favorite preoccupation with a rat's arse is not very convincing.

    BTW, an apt neologism that encapsulates the characteristics of slime isn't something that one should perceive as undesirable. Enlarge your intellectual horizons.

    Agreed. Plus if a business license can be rejected because of the owners stand on gay marriage, then it is entirely legitimate for the mayor of Jerkwater USA to reject a license for a business whose owner supports gay marriage. Its a two way street.

    Meanwhile, Rahm embraces Farrahkan. Chicago's mongrels run the murder rate to new levels of horror. And we are worried about the values of grilled chicken on a bun.

    Hey. Want to add. Some cows, and some chickens, are gay. Go figure.
