Because both liberals and conservatives seem to be having trouble understanding this lately, let's spell it out:
George Orwell said something like: "Freedom of speech is being able to say that two plus two equals four."
My opinion is that freedom of speech is the freedom to say what other people don't want to hear.
When the Dixie Chicks said they were "ashamed" of George W. Bush, they suffered consequences. So it should come as no surprise that Chick-Fil-A suffered consequences when they expressed an equally controverisial opinion.
Hope all is well.
