Jacobson reveals the hypocrisy and dangerous precedent it sets to condemn private businesses for the religious philosophies of the owners or the staff.

Jacobson points out that Chicago's, Rahm Emanuel is supporting the call to block Chick-fil-A in Chicago, yet the city recently allowed Louis Farrakan, of the Nation of Islam, to re-open a restaurant there.

There are no bounds on the left...and they know who they can pick on and get away with it. In this case, a Christian southern-based business is easy political pickings.

This country Can Not survive...the things that divide us are far stronger than anything that unites us. In the Rahm Emanuel type cities, they are free to hate, drive out...and soon kill...those who think like we do. With a fully propogandized, unfree, media cheering them on all the way.

No way this nation makes it any further. This little incident shows that clearly.

” - - - the city recently allowed Louis Farrakan, of the Nation of Islam, to re-open a restaurant there.”

There is a rumor going around that since Mayor Rahm was so helpful to Louis F. that Louis is going to have an all-you-can-eat sandwich named after Rahm.

Is there any truth to this rumor?

BTW, the new sandwich name is reported to be “The Ham Rahm.”

How can the Nation of Islam be homophobic if their elite guards are called “The Fruits of Islam”?

“They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents,” Emanuel said. “This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”

Focusing on the Nation Of Islam restaurant is a distraction from the real issues, here, as in the Mayor's comment on Chick-Fil-A" above.

1. The Mayor's rationalization is an absurd bit of conjecture. His attitude is what is disrespectful to a lot more "neighbors & residents," than the views of the Chick-Fil-A ownership. There are still a lot more people, even in the corrupt city of Chicago, who still respect marriage & normal family formation than there are people who demand the right to "marry" some one of their own sex.

2. For him to intervene in whatever legal procedures are required to open a new restaurant in Chicago, on this ridiculous contention, is what we would describe in the law as "arbitrary & capricious"--and hence basically an unreasonable & illegal abuse of his power.

3. That this behavior is coming from Obama's former Chief of Staff, should be used as grist for our mill, in the coming Fall campaign. That Obama put so obvious a crack-pot in charge of his operations, is one more nail in the coffin of the pretense that he has anything of value to offer mainstream Americans.

It is not about hypocrisy,

it is about the destruction of a Christian Nation.

Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the powers,
against the world forces of this darkness,
against the spiritual forces of wickedness
in the heavenly places.

Rahm Emanuel's a Christ-a-phobe.

How many traditional Christians have jobs in Chicago's city government? I smell discrimination and BIG LAW SUITS if they wont' hire us ...

Proof of hatred: a business owned by traditional Christians isn't welcome in Chicago.

How would Rahm feel about a city Mayor who boycotted a business based on the owners being gay? The MSM would be screaming for years... but this? Their hatred? It's fine with them - no problemo...

Traditional Christians need to sue the city.

I just asked a similar question of a friend who is applauding the Boston Mayor's letter. She seems to have walked away from the conversation........

Someone MUST ask Farahkan if he believes in same-sex marriage.

The country needs to be divided into two separate countries. Either that, or we may have a civil war down the road. We have red and blue states. We are a divided electorate and that isn’t going to change.

He needs to be asked currently. And the second question should be “Do you like Chicken?”

How is supporting traditional marriage hating gays?

If “gays” decided en masse that they deserved free movie tickets and the theaters opposed, do they hate gays?

If “gays” thought they should be income tax exempt and I oppose, do I hate gays?

Ridiculous.

Farrakhan puts out a lot of hot air against homosexuality, but he keeps directing his people to vote for and support liberal Democrats.

He probably believes in "gay rights" himself, since his simultaneous support of liberal Dems and venting against homosexuality merely serves to keep his followers bamboozled, supporting the homos politically while believing they are opposing them.

Farrakhan is in all likelihood an atheist. The whole NOI is one big scam.
