The Chik-fil-A controversy is not about what you think it's about...

Today, supporters of Chik-fil-A, who are primarily opponents of gay marriage, are planning to eat at the restaurant as a show of support.

Mayor Rahm Emmanuel of Chicago, and Mayor Tom Menino of Boston have both made threats to block expansion of the chain into their cities, based upon the CEO's opposition to gay marriage.  No matter what your opinion of that particular issue, the idea that a government official could make your property rights conditional upon passing an ideological litmus test should scare the hell out of you.

Ideological litmus test? You mean like building a mosque? If so, then I agree.
