Another Take on Free Speech

Comes this from Fox News.

The mayor of Boston is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the city after the company’s president spoke out publicly against gay marriage.

Mayor Thomas Menino told the Boston Herald on Thursday that he doesn’t want a business in the city “that discriminates against a population.”

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press this week that his privately owned company is “guilty as charged” in support of what he called the biblical definition of the family.

So, if a government disapproves of a political remark, it’s allowed to drive the speaker from the arena.  Free speeches?  We ain’t got no free speeches in Boston.  We don’t need no free speeches.  I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ free speeches.
