If I were the powers that be at CFA, I would just go elsewhere. The business is successful. Doesn’t need to locate in a pansy state.
It is America but it is fast becoming something like one’s nightmares.
Who does he think he is - Barack Obama?
Block them on what grounds?
Where is the legal authority to do such a thing?
This is rooted in discrimination against religious principles.
Once upon a time, Boston was thew Cradle of American Liberty.
But that was many generations ago.
Now its the Kremlin of the People’s Republic of Taxachussetts.
Who built the shining city on a hill?
Mumbles Menino is an idiot and the people of Boston deserve him.
Lots of other cities and towns in MA would probably welcome the business.
So Boston hates Christians and Jews?
Boston is the elephant in the room. When I visited Massachusetts recently I found that the towns are full of hard working people who try to get around the elephant the best they can. I think we need to re-think Massachusetts, Boston is more like NYC which most people outside of NYC do not like.
Adds new meaning to “Banned in Boston”.
So much for the tolerant left!
Secondly, he didn’t say a thing about gay marriage: “We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that,”
Thomas M. Menino, Mayor of Boston. Contact Tommy’s office and let him know what you think of his vicious, bigoted, and discriminatory comment... 617.635.4500
To sum up: Mayor demands food company tolerates butt sex.
Just another delusional liberal human toilet.
Massachusetts should be purged from the union
Thank you. As a conservative in Massachusetts, it can be tough on FR. Even though I well understand most fellow conservatives on FR speak about Massachusetts with the unsaid understanding that they know we aren’t all raving moon bats, it still hurts.
I used to do the exact same thing with California...talk about me wearing my faults on my back.
As for Chick-Fil-A...gonna be my new destination.
The founder of Chick-fil-A, Truitt Cathy, is a philanthropist. He’s given away millions of dollars mostly for needy children and college scholarships.
The mayor of Boston is a nobody compared to Truitt Cathy.

Sorry, Menino, but Chick-Fil-A is already in suburban Boston:
I think of Chick-Fil-A as more of a suburban than a urban place, anyway.
Since Menino and his supporters will be missing out on Chick-Fil-A, they can chow down on “gay” cuisine, whatever that is!
IIRC, Mumbles welcomes illegal alien car thieves. Something about Boston being a “world-class city”.
“So Boston hates Christians and Jews?”
THIS IS ABT SOUTHERNERS. YOU WANT TO HEAR SOME SCATHING REMARKS ABOUT THE SOUTH, GO TO “NEW” ENGLAND. NEW ENGLAND...SAME AS THE OLD ENGLAND...LOOK PROGRESSIVE, CLOSET BIGOTRY IS THE RULE, NOT THE EXCEPTION. TUNE IN A RED SOX GAME AT FENWAY AND COUNT THE BLACKS IN THE CROWD. AND IT IS NOT BECAUSE THEY TOO POOR.
You are welcome! I think you will find Chick-fil-A a good place to eat. At least, you can try our Southern iced tea now. Smile. Hope that it will add okra to its menu!
Yeah that’s right Mr. Mayor. Do whatever you can to keep jobs from coming to your city. Whatadumbazz!
It’s a shakedown game played by the gay activists. Chick-Fil-A is basically minding its own business, selling chicken, while innocuously and gently expressing its Christian beliefs, and the gays decide they’ve found a new target. They go and ask them to become vocals supporters of the gay agenda, and they politely decline. And suddenly, the left has a new company to hate and protest. I’ve encountered several people recently who utterly despise CFA for their politics—politics which they only expressed when asked, “Do you support us or do we mount a campaign?” So far, they’ve held tight. I just got back from there for the second time this week.
On the other side of the coin, there seems to be a Chick Fil A Buy-Cot going on in our town. I went there tonight and the lines were out the door.
” Smile. Hope that it will add okra to its menu!”
You mean there really is something called “okra”? I thought it was just a crossword puzzle word.
If there was a CFA locally I’d go there as I buy fast food several times a week(usually from the value menu).
Obama is rebuilding this country into a feudal state. He himself would be the king, of course. But lesser lords, fully subservient to Obama, will be given similar absolute power over their regions. Feudalism worked for thousands of years, why not to go back to it? /s
This is quite obvious since Obama legislates from his office already by ignoring existing laws and enforcing arbitrary rules of his own invention. The Congress is silent. The Supreme Court is instructed to not interfere. The tame, bureaucratic military will not do anything. All the effective power is now in the hands of the President. This is also the point from which absolute monarchs begin their downfall. How soon The People will start seeking foreign support? And who will provide such support?
Chick-Fil-A should present the mayor a challenge. If he can pronounce the name of the company correctly four times in a row, then they will leave. Mumbles would have no chance.
I can relate being a conservative in New York State. Although I don’t live in the cesspool of liberalism known as NYC and it’s environs I do live in it’s liberal cousin Buffalo, over on the West Side of the state. Hard headed democrats who vote party over religion, there are many Catholics here. It is frustrating. The letters to the editor of the local fish wrap, The Buffalo Snews is enough to make one want to move, which I would if I could. It’s a long story.
Oh good, I guess this means we can now enact bans on atheists, sexual perverts, and any other group we feel like banning.
It is really good. Better chicken than other fast-food places.
” Hope that it will add okra to its menu!
I love okra! Wish I could buy a squeeze bottle of the slime to put on burgers!
“To sum up: Mayor demands food company tolerates butt sex.”
Mayor demands food company consider butt sex a sacrament.
How’s that for tolerance and freedom?
Chick -Fil-A can hire Bobby Valentine to cook at the Boston store...lol
“...it can be tough on FR”
At least you’re not in Ithaca!

It sounds like a restraint of trade suit for having an opinion to me.
Comments like yours put it all into perspective. Let’s call it what it is. . . too many lipsticks on pigs these days.
Toxic for half of the Country. As in what happened to JCP when they “loved” gays. Gotta take the good with the bad, folks.
Before the perverts took over.
All Chick-fil-a has to do is tell Boston that they plan to also run the restaurant as a mosque
I love Chick-Fil-A. I love it more than McDonalds. I love their chicken nuggets and waffle fries. I love Chick-Fil-A so much that even if their CEO came out in favor of gay marriage, I’d still sneak in there a few times a month. Chick Fil-A is too good to be kept out of a major city for long. Most people just aren’t that political.
I had always liked Chick-fil-A and felt compelled to eat there the other day to support them over the LGBT crowd.
Alas, my spicy chicken sandwich was barren of any condiments other than two pickle slices.
Just 2 slices of bread, a hunk of chicken and two lousy pickle slices.
In the past the sandwiches had always been decked out with nice lettuce and tomato with a nice smear of mayo.
I won’t be back.
Not because of politics or social protests, but because the meal was crappy and over priced.
I was very disappointed.
From now on it’s Wendys spicy chicken sandwich for me,or the McDodo’s spicy chicken on the dollar menu.
Chick-fil-a should open a restaurant in every city on Boston’s outskirts...
OTOH, on what legal grounds could the mayor refuse them opening in Boston. Since when does a mayor, alone, decide who is allowed to do business in town?
WAs the Mayor raised in Chicago?
We do not have them in our area. What did the picture look like when you ordered? I know McD’s southern chicken only has one pickld.
To be honest I have never had the McDodos sandwich.
I had it suggested to me thurs after I relayed my disappointment with the Chick-fil-a sandwich.
Who the heck pays $7 plus dollars for a hunk of chicken on a lame bun with two pickles, a side of fries(they were good) and a medium coke?
Thank God I had some mayo, lettuce and home grown tomatoes at work.
I salvaged it, but what was I paying for if I had to fix it myself?
The chicken was very nice and spicy, but over all I was disappointed.
