I am greatly amused by the uproar being caused by the statement from the chairman of the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain. The family that owns the chain are religious Southern Baptists, and big surprise, they believe in the biblical definition of marriage -- i.e. be tween a man and a woman. By the way, this was the belief of President Obama until about two months ago when he "evolved."

Now the mayors of Chicago and Boston have said that they don’t want that type of business in their cities and will not grant permits for new restaurants. I thought a big part of the uproar from the progressives and gay community was for tolerance for all beliefs. I guess I was wrong.
