Like the mayors of Boston and Chicago and separate sisco who actually suggested.
Before the era attorneys told -- you couldn't do because they would -- checked already for sorting out franchises and our cities simply because the CEO stated a personal.
Believe I don't I find this to be outrageous what are they going to do with other businesses owned by evangelical Christians that are already operating in their systems are they going to hold on before any media inquiry a grand inquisition and say hey do you believe these things if you do we're going to invalidate your license that would be illegal to.
