EUGENE VOLOKH: Chicago Alderman: I Will Deny Business Permit Because ‘There Are Consequences for [Its Owner’s] Statements and Beliefs,’ and They Should Include Denial. “This is just appalling.” Well, it’s Chicago.
The Alderman should be glad the owners of Chick-Fil-A are forgiving Christian types. If I owned Chick-Fil-A, I’d file a lawsuit that would ruin him. And hire private investigators to look into his finances, because there’s only one way that ends for a Chicago Alderman. . . .
But I guess that’s why people like to pick on those forgiving Christian types. It’s safer.
