Guess Why Denver Is Trying To Block Chick-fil-A From The Airport?


By on Saturday, August 22, 2015

The Denver City Council is considering blocking Chick-fil-A from operating at the Denver International Airport because it disapproves of the chain’s stance on gay marriage, reported The Denver Post.
Robin Kniech, the council’s first openly gay member, complained that Chick-fil-A might use its profits to “fund and fuel discrimination.”

The fact that Chick-fil-A can use its profits in whatever way it desires — even if that means supporting organizations seen as hostile to gay marriage — apparently flew over her head.
Another fact she ignored is that Chick-fil-A hosts a strict nondiscrimination policy, meaning that its owners’ personal views on gay marriage have never affected how they operate their business.
“We can do better than this brand in Denver at our airport, in my estimation,” another council member, Jolon Clark, proclaimed.
Keep in mind that the proposed Chick-fil-A would rake in an expected $4.1 million in profit during it first year. Furthermore, the airport would accrue $616,278 annually in concession fees.
Furthermore, according to a 2014 survey of airport users, Chick-fil-A was “the second-most sought-after quick service brand at the airport, second to Chipotle.”

The people clearly want Chick-fil-A at the Denver International Airport, and its presence there would in fact benefit the airport greatly.
Yet because of the liberal dogma that we must all conform to the same beliefs, Chick-fil-A might not get to operate there.
Great …
