Rahm Emanuel Pledges To Ban Chick-Fil-A From Chicago
Breitbart ^

Posted on 07/26/2012 4:52:22 AM PDT by chessplayer

The unemployment rate in the city of Chicago is approximately 9.8 percent, well above the national average. Since Monday night, one 17-year-old boy has been shot and 13 others have been wounded in shootings across the city. And that’s just the most recent wave of shootings to plague the city – dozens more have been shot over the last few weeks.

And Mayor Rahm Emanuel is taking action: he’s banning Chick-Fil-A.

Note how rahm has no problem with louis farrakhan who has also spoken out against gay marriage being in chicago.

and of course where were rahm’s “chicago values” when he was chief of staff for Obama, who up until two months ago opposed gay marriage?

I am bored with reading these nonsensical statements from stupid officials.

What authority or law will be cited to refuse such a thing and how much do these officials have put away for their legal funds?

So a person is no longer entitled to believe in what scripture tells us. That is what they are saying. I am not allowed to believe that something God tells me is wrong, is wrong.

His word says they are given over to depraved minds. I see that this is true.

Exactly - Im half inclined to try and open one there so I could sue their asses off when Im denied - take it to the SCOTUS and OWN Chicago -

then I'd open one with a big rainbow out front reminding everyone what the Bible says about them and how it's been usurped by the turd burglars and degenerates who put things in their asses and call it "pride"

Yes. They are independent franchise operations. Small businesses, I think that would be. I will be heading down to the one on Chicago Ave. as soon as I can and I will be eating there as often as I can.

I smell a Supreme Court case coming on this. It’s an interesting juxtaposition of free speech, free commerce, and excessive government. And even with this mushy Court, I don’t see any way the PC Politburo can win.

This is the time for ALL good Americans (meaning conservatives) to support Chick Fil A fully and totally.

Chick Fil A is a huge supporter of local charities, and they do so without huge fanfare. This family is now stopping at the local Chick Fil A as often as possible. Everyone else needs to do this, too. Plus, the restaurants are closed on Sunday, so their employees can have some family time.

WE, the good Americans, need to start standing up to this nonsense.

Get out there and eat more chicken!!

I’m so sick of this queer-in-your-face crap.

Why do you think homosexual "rights" is such a political steamroller?

Gay men are electorally insignificant (1.5% or so). In a recent survey, same-sex male couples were 14.5% - IN THE CASTRO. Same-sex households are 0.6% nationwide.

So it's not the numbers.

Obviously, since politicians exist only for votes, this issue is enormously popular with non-homosexuals.

Why?

I notice that there’s no provision on the mayor’s office website, for contacting the mayor. He doesn’t want to be bothered with hearing from the little people. This guy is an arrogant, condescending carpetbagger. I hope he runs for governor ASAP and then for president and gets the crap kicked out of him in that election. Anything to get his rear end out of Chicago.

I can’t see any legal way they can legally impose bans aside from zoning laws but even that strategy will fall.

Yup. He can “suggest” the SEIU and OWS thugs pay those restaurants a visit to harass/threaten customers and employees. Harass the customers to the point where they stop going to the restaurant, and they would be forced out of business. It would be the Chicago way.

In Boston what Menino said he’d do is harrass the hell out of them—the city’s permitting and other bureaucratic crap is what Rahm-crap intends to use. It highlights the tyranny of government bureaucracy and makes it more difficult to take the city to court: “we’s just doin’ our due diligence here, going over your permit applications with a fine tooth comb. Nothing to see here.”

The city’s permit system turns every homeowner into a criminal. They are judge and jury on interpretation of the ordinances, so even though on paper you don’t need a permit as long as renovations simply replace what was already there, they can define any replacement as really doing something new and require a permit. There isn’t a homeowner in Chicago who couldn’t be harrassed out of existence if they wanted to do it to him.

So everyone begs hat in hand, please Mr. Bureaucrat, pretty please, permit me to drive these three nails into that stud over there, please, please.

I see the list of permit applications for my neighborhood on a local “by the block” web search engine. People are applying for permits for the most minor repairs. By ordinance they don’t need a permit but they are scared silly of harrassment and figure it’s cheaper to pay off the city via the permit fee than have the inspector show up and shut down your project.

Practically speaking, they don’t have enough inspectors to do this to everyone, so it becomes simply a system by which someone can sic the city on his enemies.

Or the Mayor High Potentate Crap-Face can sic the city on Chick-Fil-A.

How can you take “basic bureaucratic abuse of power and harrassment” to the Supreme Court???? If anyone can do that, I hope he does it.

Since Rahm is on a “crusade” to shut down all establishments that support the Biblical view of marriage, does that mean he’ll try to close the churches next?

Not if Conservatives rally and support Chick-fil-A. I went there yesterday for dinner and took a carryout home. The country is dividing into two waring camps. This is just another manifestation of the dividing of American society.

I think long run this is going to quietly turn voters against the left. I talked with my son who was a huge Obama supporter in 2008 and told him about the mayors banning this restaurant. He hadn’t heard about it but was pretty outraged. He likes the food and thinks they have the right to believe whatever they want.

Ok leftards, let’s play your game. There are many more cities and states with conservative mayors and governors than there are cities ruled by crazed lefty commies.

Let’s start banning all the homo-supporting businesses from those conservative cities and states, and see how things turn out for the funding of those perverted parades and the lobbying for unholy marriages. And we’ll see how those businesses crash, really quickly.

Chik-Fil-A will do fine without Boston and Sickago, how well will Homo Depot and JCP do without stores in conservative areas?

This isn't going to go away. I've read their "reasoning" and thought carefully about what they are doing, and it's a very old problem. We are facing yet another aspect of evil. Evil never goes away, it just changes how it presents itself. I will be standing up to them calmly but persistently. I will not be quiet when they allow their pathology to intrude into polite conversation or normal social situations. I will speak up, whether about how much I enjoy Chick-Fil-A food or about how important I consider real marriage in sustaining civilization. At least in my presence, I will respond calmly but firmly in a manner that makes this attack on morality a net negative for the far left.
