    This is regarding two large city mayors that are trying to prevent Chick-Fil-A from opening locations in their cities because the owners do not support the Gay agenda and spend their money with organizations that do not support the Gay Agenda.

    My question to you is:1) is the an abuse of power?
    2) is it legal, ethical, Constitutional for them to do so? Why or WHy not.
    3) if you say it is acceptable for them to do this, then what's the difference if they try to stop churches, synagogues, or mosques from coming into "their" city? Most Christian, Jewish and Muslim organization do not support the gay agenda and actively speak out against it. What's the difference.

    Well seeing as gay is the new black, and these cowardly mayors don't want to offend those who are light in their loafers. I think we're going to see a lot more of this bogus overreach of power.

    I don't oppose gay marriage in the least. That said:

    What these mayors are doing is abhorrent. It is an abuse of power. It is unethical.

    If they are blocking chick-fil-a where another fast food joint would be welcome, it is probably illegal.

    If i was the ceo of chick I would get in front of a camera and say " i guess the city doesnt want the jobs or the tax revenue generated....I probably wouldnt want to place a business in unfriendly territory anyway.

    This attention to Chic-Filet A just proves that the best advertising is the one you got for free.

    I think the blind hog (Bloomberg) just found an acorn.

    True. If we had 'em here in Nevada, I probably would've gone.

    I wonder if God is forbidding them to set up shop in this sinful state... :devildance:
