  •  It still seems an inconsistent application of law (1+ / 0-)

    I don't have evidence regarding the position on same sex marriage of the owners of halal restaurants.  I think it is a fair assumption, however, that if they are so strict in their adherence of the dictates of Islam that they follow its dietary rules, they are unlikely to ignore its rules on homosexuality.  

    I wasn't aware that the quality of the food sold by the chain was at issue here.  Other fast food chains with no better fare are allowed to locate in these areas.  Why should the healthfulness of this chain and this chain alone enter into your reasoning?

    Same sex marriage is illegal in Illinois. Isn't it a bit of a stretch to use political power to restrict access to a business entity that is promoting a position that is consistent with the law?
