This controversy over Chick-fil-A is getting weirder and disturbing...

As you can guess, EBL loves this advertising campaign...
I do make spelling mistakes, but I can spell better than these cows
I have never been to a Chick-fil-A.  But any place encouraging people to stop eating beef is okay with me.  But apparently Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-A supports traditional marriage (he is not for same sex marriage).  Okay, you can disagree with that if you wish.  If you do not want to patronize this business as an individual that is your right too.  Well that has prompted the Mayor of Boston and a Chicago Alderman (Democrats of course) to try to use the power of government to block Chick-fil-A.

Those government decisions are insane.  Government officials should not be banning chicken places because they disagree with the political views of that business' management.  Aren't the Mayor of Boston and this Chicago Alderman violating their oath which included upholding the U.S. Constitution (remember that free speech part).  Not so long ago, Barack Obama shared Dan Cathy's views.  This is not just a disagreement over the merits of same sex marriage (and full disclosure I would vote for same sex marriage and support it).  But any politician proposing to block a business on this basis should be (at a minimum) run out of office and probably prosecuted for illegally using the power of their office.  Many people disagree on same sex marriage.  Citizens have a right to disagree on this issue.

Update:
This is how fascism works...
So what are Chicago values?
Nation of Islam can open a restaurant in Chicago, but not Chick-fil-A?

  1. Years ago people got bent out of shape because In-N-Out Burger had Bible verses on the underside of their drink cups. Lots of the same people who liked seeing Sarah Palin hung in effigy applauded moves to boycott the In-N-Out. It all went nowhere.

  2. Don't think I've ever eaten at a Chick-fil-A, actually. Not gonna start, either. My fast food repertoire is limited to IN-N-OUT and El Pollo Loco.

    1. I like local places myself. I find chains worth eating at once. But I may go to Chick-fil-A just as a sign of support.
