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.

Chicago alderman blocks Chick-fil-A expansion

CHICAGO (AP) – A Chicago alderman says he won't allow Chick-fil-A to open a restaurant in his ward until it comes up with a written anti-discrimination policy.

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.
Gay rights advocates were surprised last week, when the president of fast-food chain Chick-fil-A publicly announced his position against same-sex marriage.
After Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said that his privately owned company is "guilty as charged" in support of what he called the biblical definition of the family unit, Chick-fil-A released its own statement.
