Chick-fil-A, Rham Emanuel And Tommy Menino
The sleaze ball Mayor of Chicago doesn’t think Chick-Fil-A represents the values of his city and he’s going to do everything he can to keep the chicken joint from building in his city. The Mayor of Boston agrees with Rham-a-dope, he doesn’t like Chick-Fil-A’s philosophies either and Boston’s Chief Executive pulls another Meninoism…..what the hell ever that is. Yes its true, the Mayor of Chicago is not backing down (no surprise) but the Mayor of Boston is tempering his remarks a bit, though still insisting he doesn’t like the fact that the owner of Chick-Fil-A is opposed to gay marriage. Millions of people are opposed to gay marriage, but what does that have to do with the price of chicken? Nothing! Chick-Fil-A has never been accused of discriminating against gays…..customers or employees. It’s a Christian-based organization that believes in Christian values and biblical definitions of family values and true, it’s founder and owners oppose gay marriage. As do a lot of people………so what!!
First of all, one may argue that denying a building permit or licensing permit…whatever….because of political or religious views is unconstitutional….and that’s the only reason Mayor Rham-a-damn is keeping them out. Second, do the people forget the Chicago mayor used to work for a guy who vehemently opposed gay marriage? True….his name was Barack Obama. Yes I know, that guy did a flip-flop on the issue when an election dictated it but he used to be against gay marriage. And third…..let’s try to think of another organization that might be looking for space in Boston or Chicago that opposes gay marriage; How ’bout the Catholic church?
I don’t know a thing about Chick-Fil-A…or didn’t until this flak erupted, I’ve never eaten at a Chick-Fil-A and probably never will but on this one, they’re taking an unnecessary beating. Here’s the slippery Mayor of Chicago, the Mayor of a city that epitomizes definition of the word “corruption”, it’s now averaging two shootings a day, most of them fatal, a monthly gang-related death toll from gun violence surpassing every city in America, plus most cities in Iraq and Afghanistan and Mayor has the “stones” to even suggest…Chick-Fil-A doesn’t represent the values of the city of Chicago. Let me see now….based on the violent crime and corruption going back to Al Capone days in Chicago, Chick-Fil-A may be happy it doesn’t share those values.
