Chick-fil-A has returned to news headlines, but not for good reason.

The popular fast-food chain is currently facing a political roadblock in Denver, Colorado. The city’s council has moved to delay Chick-fil-A’s request to lease a location within Denver International Airport (DIA) due to members’ concerns with the company’s stance on same-sex marriage.

According to The Denver Post, several city council members view a potential seven-year concessions deal with Chick-fil-A as a question of ethics.

Denver City Councilman Paul Lopez called it “really, truly a moral issue on the city.”

Robin Kniech, the council’s first openly gay member, said she worries about a local Chick-fil-A franchise generating “corporate profits used to fund and fuel discrimination.”

She also expressed her concern that the companies that do business in Denver and its State of Colorado “conform” to the policies and practices of said city and state:

“We really want to look into the policies and practices of these companies, and just make sure that they conform to ours in the city, the State of Colorado,” said Councilwoman Kniech.

“We have a marriage decision nationally. This is really about policies and it’s about practices.”
