Intolerant Chicago Politicians Block Chick-fil-A From Building on Logan Square …(They’re Christian) …Update: But Welcome Farrakhan
Chick-fil-A spoke out for Christian values.
Now they must be punished.
Chicago banned Chick-fil-A from building a new store in the city.
The intolerant left strikes again.
The Chicago Tribune reported
The leader of a Christian group today said Ald. Joe Moreno displayed hypocrisy for his decision to deny Chick-fil-A the right to open in his ward because of the chain restaurant president’s opposition to gay marriage.
“It’s hypocritical,” said David Smith, executive director of the Illinois Family Institute, which opposes gay marriage. “Here’s the alderman turning around and being intolerant and discriminatory because somebody has a different view than he does. Would he do that to a Muslim company?”
The Tribune first reported that Moreno, 1st, announced he would exercise his aldermanic privilege to block the construction of the city’s second Chick-fil-A restaurant on the 2500 block of Elston Avenue in increasingly trendy Logan Square.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel backed Moreno’s ideological viewpoint, saying the city does not share the values espoused by Dan Cathy, president of the family-owned Chick-fil-A fast-food restaurant chain.
UPDATE: But Rahm Emanuel is welcoming the assistance from anti-Semitic hate-monger Louis Farrakhan.
UPDATE: So much for values- 31 Chicago Aldermen have been convicted of crimes since 1973. How’s that for values?
