The President of Chick-Fil-A, Dan Cathy, has stated to Baptist Press that his conviction was in favor of traditional marriage. He takes a stand against same-sex marriage. The company does not discriminate against homosexuals.
Mayor Tom Menino of Boston and Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago say Chick-Fil-A is not welcome in their cities. And they will ban them from opening stores.
WHAT? Did these two American cities just become the kingdoms of the mayors? These men are to uphold the United States Constitution. If they don’t like chicken, waffle fries and peach shakes (how could they not?) then don’t buy them. But these men do not have the authority to tell a business they cannot operate in the city.
I wrote the mayor of Boston this week. And I sent a $10 gift card for chicken. You might want to voice your opinion to the mayors. Here are the names and office addresses.
