Rahm Emanuel has backed calls to keep Chick-fil-A from doing business in his city, saying the restaurant chain’s Christian beliefs on marriage “are not Chicago values.” Meanwhile, the Boston Globe has come to the defense of Chick-fil-A leaders’ right to hold those beliefs in the wake of similar comments from that city’s mayor.
Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told the Chicago Tribune Wednesday that he agreed with Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno’s effort to stop Chick-fil-A from opening a new restaurant in his area of the city based on president Dan Cathy’s “bigoted, homophobic” views. Cathy, who is famously outspoken in his Christian beliefs, had said last week that he was “guilty as charged” for supporting traditional marriage, saying that redefining the institution meant “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”
“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” Emanuel told the Tribune. “They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.” – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel
Any way to attack Christians or Christian-based businesses are are full effect. STAND UP AND VOTE THIS ADMINISTRATION out of office. Emanuel cheated even to become the Mayor of Chicago as he wasn’t even a resident but in Chicago anything goes as you are learning under Obama’s tirade lately.
