Who cares what Chick Fil A founder said?

  Antoine Dodson is an "internet sensation" who has spoken out in support of Chick-Fil-A. Of course, he's being criticized mercilessly, but somehow I suspect Antoine will not only survive the controversy but thrive.
  And whatcha wanna make a bet he winds up on tv.
  Here's Antoine. You might remember him. Twitchy has more.

  Anyway, Volokh says it's illegal to keep a business out because you don't like their religion:

But denying a private business permits because of such speech by its owner is a blatant First Amendment violation. Even when it comes to government contracting — where the government is choosing how to spend government money — the government generally may not discriminate based on the contractor’s speech, see Board of County Commissioners v. Umbehr (1996). It is even clearer that the government may not make decisions about how people will be allowed to use their own property based on the speaker’s past speech.
  Not that our DOJ cares about Christians or white people.
