(Community Matters) Aside from sometimes over zealous politicians expressing their solidarity with the LGBT community, I don’t think most are arguing that Chick-Fil-A’s president shouldn’t be allowed to express his opinion nor that the company can’t give their money to whom they want. Even most of those politicians have walked back their initial statements, now rather expressing their support for LGBT equality.
What you’re seeing is the LGBT community & friends urging others to boycott Chick-Fil-A too. Less sales, less profits to channel to organizations established to deny me and others equal constitutional rights.
I would argue against my city/county giving any subsidies for the building of one of their sites. But, if there are no zoning and development restrictions and they need no entitlements, I don’t believe governments ought to be able to prohibit their stores.
