    There is some truth to it. Overstated, but some truth. There is no war against Christianity, but some political entertainers and TV reachers have some believing there is.

    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.

    Exactly. Now they can turn down for legitimate reasons, but not for what the CEO said. And if they did, legal action could and should be taken.

    But you cannot deny there are just as many bashing religion/chrisianity as there are bashing gays.

    So if there is not a war on one there is not a war on the other

    Running off at the mouth? Sure, that's America's newest past time. Many keep speaking and removing all doubt about their status as a fool. But there is no war. No rights lost. Christians are the overwhelming majority enjoying all the rights that entails.

    I actually wouldn't agree with that. Who's bashing Christianity? Other Christians? If we're going to take that to mean non-Christians or atheists, those don't make up a large number of the population. But there is a large religious portion of the population that "bash gays". I think there is overall less people speaking out against Christianity or "bashing" Christianity, it's just that the reaction to it is very loud.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Chicago has no values, so I'm not sure what this Rahm guy is speaking of?

    Chicago does have corrupt "values", like the mafia code of Omertŕ, so maybe that's what he's referring to? If that's what Rahm is speaking of, I really doubt that Chick-Fil-A would want to share Chicago's values of corruption anyway.
