I don't understand the Chick-fil-A kerfuffle

I don't understand the current upset about Chick-fil-A that is going on right now. First of all, the owners of Chick-fil-A have always been very upfront with their bigotry. If you don't believe me just check out Google News with the search "Chick fil A gay" before June this year and you will still find a bunch of hits detailing for instance how Chick-fil-A state "We Explicitly Do Not Like Same-Sex Couples" from January last year.

This is the reason that I have boycotted them ever since they got established down here is Southern California. And it is completely in your right if you agree with their bigoted ways to eat more there to support them. It's the way of capitalism and free enterprise and I am all for it.

What I don't understand though is how anybody can think that it is a good idea for the city of Chicago to not allow them to establish a restaurant simply because they disagree with the proprietors political or religious views. Given how crazy everybody in this country seems to be about free enterprise, how can a business be denied to operate just because their owners are idiots? That seems more like something that would happen in a country that practice state capitalism (For instance China or Russia).
