This is an Alderman issue, that is localized to one small part of Chicago. Emanual gives his blessing to the decision, but it is ultimately not his call. It is a Logan Square call.Funny that Chicago did not kick out the white sox and say they weren't welcome when the manager at the time, ozzie guillen had said some anti-gay remarks. And when is it wrong to express personal beliefs? Does the Chick-fil-A corporation not employ gays? Does the Chick-fil-A corporation not allow gay people to eat in it's restaurant? The owner of chick-fil-a was asked what his position was on same-sex marriage.
lineral intolerance rears it's ugly head once again and I think if chick-fil-a pursued it, I think they would have a valid discrimination suit against the city of chicago.
If the predominantly LGBT community of Logan Square doesn't want a gay-hating business moving in, why don't they have the right to prevent it?
NO ONE is arguing that Chik Fil-A is being infringed upon their right to say whatever the fuck they want and funnel money into gay-hating intolerant organizations all they want. Why then do you think they don't have the right to respond to those decision of this company however they want to?
Jesus Fucking Tap Dancing christ--you can not sit here and bitch and moan about one entity being able to say whatever the fuck they want, then demand the offended group respond in the way that you think is proper.
Just as in the Olympian being booted for her silly tweet--I dare say less than half of the general population understands dick about how freedom of speech works.
