    Nice straw man attempt though.
    You're really taking the SSM issue really personally, aren't you?

    A weak attempt to compare a white establishment that refused service to black customers has no connection to this debate about Chick-Fil-A and SSM.

    News flash: There is nothing similar. Apples and oranges.

    Is that a bit of intolerance I'm detecting?

    I have absolutely no problem with the bolded, but before mayors open their mouths, and try to demonize a private businessman, in order to make a political statement, then they should understand that not everyone marches in lock-step. Personally, I hope the business has the biggest quarter ever, just because it was none of Emanuel's business to go after him in the first place.

    I'm honestly surprised at how much political importance they're giving to a fast food chain that makes mediocre chicken sandwiches.

    Free Speech doesn't mean the freedom to live without repercussions....it simply means that you have the right to speak your mind.
    Of course it does silly! It's part of the Left's evil plan to subvert the Constitution. Disagreeing with Conservatives is EXACTLY THE SAME AS OPRESSING THEM.

    Never underestimate Americans' capacity to completely overreact

    i have calmed down and admittedly overreacted on some people on this issue.

    Tried to go support chick fil a tonight, cant even get near the place. Didnt see any protesters. Chick Fil A is not suffering over this. Mr. Cathy should send the idiots in chicago and sf and nyu a thank you note.

    The Chick-Fil-A across from my office (in Arlington VA) had a line stretching out the door and down the sidewalk today. Most of them were wearing suits and ties...it looked to me like some Republican congressmen and their staffers decided it would be a good idea to go to Chick-Fil-A today so that they can boast about how much they hate gay people to their constituents back home. And sadly, it will probably help them.

    supporting free speech and religious tolerance does not constitute hating gays.
