Please don't make this thread a politically correct issue nor a political issue or the thread will get deleted. Thank you. But we don't have a Chick Fil-A here because of the same issue. And I like their food.

Before Wednesday's City Council meeting, Alderman Joe Moreno said he's tried to work with the company for months, he says Chick-fil-A has not put its stated anti-discrimination policy into writing.
