    exactly......most of the USA population doesn't care that one old man expressed his opinion near as much as they care about the incredibly arrogant stance of a few politicians hoping to score a few votes from a minority voting bloc....
    Politicians think we are all mindless idiots who can be impressed by their antics....and sadly some are, but most of us are smarter than that.

    Support against the boycott because of their "Christian values," right?

    If it were not for Emmanuel's comments this would be a non issue.

    As far as I know chic-fil-a does not refuse to serve gays. The owners or members of their organization can have whatever personal opinions they want and gays can boycott them if they want.

    Politicians should have stayed out of this.

    That may be, but comments, by both ad either, are nothing. Actions are something. If the state acts, they should sue and and the state leaders shoudl be roundly slapped. But let's not pretend silly **** talking is equal to actions.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Talk means they don't support the 1st Amendment, which means they ought to be run out on a rail. I don't like Emanuel anyhow, ****ing gangster.

    Nonsense. They ahve the same right to talk back as the owner did. Everyone ahs the right to **** talk. Now, to act, to ban, that would be different, and I'd join calling for them to answer for that. And I think the law would be brought into that. Otherwise, this is just one more non-issue to keep anyone from talking any real issue.

    LOL, that is EXACTLY what I have been saying about Obama since he took office. Obama TALKS of the evil Bush policies yet keeps 99% of them, Obama talks of open gov't yet hides EVERYTHING that he can. Obama TALKS of a "recovery" yet can not point to what, if anything, has caused it. Obama has been campaigning nearly endlessly has yet done very little actual governing. No he can't!

    An even better example would be if McDonalds comes out and says that they are in favor of gay marriage, and then President Romney pledges to ban McDonald's from America. Would that be okay? I think it would be about the furthest thing from okay, Constitutionally speaking, but that's just me.

    As for the OP, did Rahm pledge to ban Muslim businesses from Chicago as well? They're aginst gay marriage too, in fact their "tolerance" towards homosexuality is about as intolerant as it gets, in many Muslim nations they just throw rocks at gays until they're dead. Do those values line up with Chicago values, Rahm?

    Is it different because the Muslims didn't get on the radio and say that they follow their religious beliefs? Because I think they have.

    It's the jaw dropping hypocrisy that really, well, drops my jaw. It seems like racism and bigotry are bigger sins than murder these days, unless the racism is directed at whites and the bigotry directed at Christians. This sword has a double edge, remember, and liberals won't be in charge forever. If we allow one group to demonize another, and use their elected positions as representatives of We The People to do so, who is to say that some Bible-thumping redneck Mayor won't do the same thing later? Will it be okay then? If not, we should nip this in the bud right here and now.

    If I were COO of Chic-Fil-A, I would be applying for business licenses all over Chicago and San Francisco. Then, after they denied the applications, I'd sue them back to the stone age. And I'd win without ever seeing the inside of a courtroom.

    That's not exactly true. I know naunce isn't big in these circles, but 99% is a lot of hyperbole. He hasn't occupied any country on a pretext. He has honored the Iraqi timetable as he said he would before he was elected. He has concentrated in Afghanistan like he said he would. He doesn't try to call torture inhanced interrogation techniques, so at least there is some honesty there. So, while disappointing and not as far removed as I'd like, he was and is an improvement.

    Some yes, most...not really. Most of the people I know (and i live in the bible belt) saw it as a protest for free speech and not support of religious beliefs.

    But hey, if you want to keep thinking this is about religion and gay marriage....knock yourself out
