Default Chick-fil-A blocked from Denver airport for now

Quote:
A committee of the Denver City Council has stalled what was expected to be routine approval of a Chick-fil-A restaurant at the Denver International Airport after at least four council members expressed disapproval of the company's alleged opposition to same-sex marriage.
During an Aug. 18 hearing, council member Robin Kniech said she was concerned about a local franchise generating "corporate profits used to fund and fuel discrimination," The Denver Post reported. Councilman Paul Lopez compared the pro-family stances of some Chick-fil-A leaders to presidential candidate Donald Trump's comments about immigration and other issues, calling opposition to the airport restaurant "really, truly a moral issue."
Let's be clear, there are no allegations of Chick-fil-A discriminating against homosexuals or refusing to sell their food for a gay wedding, the Denver city council committee has stalled the restaurant's permit application because they are perceived as opposed to gay marriage. That's right, the self proclaimed champions of tolerance for gay marriage will tolerate no difference from the party line, at least if a company wants to get a business license.

But hey, there is no war on Christians, really.

Quote:
Most council opposition focused on now-CEO Dan Cathy's 2012 support of traditional marriage, with some opposition also targeting "donations made by charitable arms to groups opposing LGBT causes,"
Of course gay marriage zealots will attempt to minimize the strong arming of a business into conformity with their agenda as an outlier after denying these sort of gay mafia tactics exist at all. Tut, tut it is all the product of a right wing victim complex nothing to worry about.

Chik-fil-A isn't opposed to same-sex marriage. In fact, I don't know of any restaurants that are for or against it. Now the owners of a company may have a personal belief one way or the other but that's not the company's official stance. All Chik-fil-A does is sell good food, treat their employees well, and make kick-ass profits at the expense of failed outrage campaigns against them.

Next time I hire a plumber I'm gonna find out his stance on abortion. If it's different than mine I'm gonna protest the company. Sounds ridiculous, right? Welp that's exactly what these dumb twats are doing to Chik-fil-A. They're getting their panties in a bunch over the personal beliefs of the owner.

Who gives a f*ck what they believe in in their personal lives. STFU and eat some chicken and waffles fries.

False...

The council is NOT "protesting the company"...

They are ACTIVELY TAKING GOVERNMENT ACTION against the company...That's about 694 times more dangerous than a "protest"...

Oh! I SEE! I can't have a Chik-fil-a near me, but other people get an opportunity and say no!

At least I still got Cracker Barrel, wholesomely good and non-controversial.

Also the website crashed for a bit when I tried posting this, not even allowed to complain about not having Chik-fil-a lol.

Except for the racist name.

We should partner up and start a restaurant, Wally. We can call it the Coon Cask.
