A proposal for a new Chick-fil-A outpost at Denver International Airport (DIA) has ruffled some feathers on the Colorado city's council.
Concerns over Chick-fil-A's reputation for anti-gay political stances has led the Denver City Council's Business Development Committee to table the Southern fried chicken chain's bid for a seven-year deal at the airport for two weeks, so council members could "look at the policies involved," according to a report by CNN Money. Taco Bell/Pizza Hut will just have to suffice for now.
Robin Kniech -- the council's first openly gay member -- said she fears the deal would lead to "corporate profits used to fund and fuel discrimination," the Denver Post reported. Members also questioned the influence of religion on how the company operates, as it famously closes all its stores on Sundays.
