Rahmbo Protects 'Chicago Values' From Chick-fil-A
IBD Editorials ^ | July 27, 2012

Posted on 07/27/2012 12:28:58 PM PDT by raptor22

First Amendment: The politically incorrect personal beliefs of a food-chain owner provides politicians nationwide an opportunity to rail against nonexistent discrimination. Want fries with that righteous indignation?

Chicago Alderman Proco "Joe" Moreno announced this week that he will block Chick-fil-A's effort to build a store in his trendy ward after hearing that Chick-fil-A's president, Dan Cathy, had stated in an interview that he believed in marriage as between one man and one woman.

Cathy was quoted July 16 in the Baptist Press saying he was "guilty as charged" for supporting "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."

Chick-fil-A also is closed on Sunday, another fact that bothers liberals who believe Cathy is one of those bitter people who "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them," as candidate Obama once described middle America.

Oddly, Cathy's views were once echoed by President Obama. "I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian ... it is also a sacred union," was candidate Obama's response to evangelical pastor Rick Warren in April 2008 during a presidential campaign forum.

Are there no Christians in Chicago who may agree with Mr. Cathy?

How dare Rahmboy speak for ALL of Chicago - not everyone agrees with him.

The Franchise operators, The Cathy’s and all employees of Chick-Fil-A thank these intolerant and Un-American politicians for the greatest free advertisement they could have asked for.
As Christians, Americans and people just plain tired of idiot politicians flock to Chick-Fil-A and business booms!

Rahm is merely promoting his own values and sexual preferences.

If we TRULY had Freedom of speech in what is left of America, I would say some very strong things about these scum sucking politicians.... but we don’t, so I won’t.

CFA makes a mean chicken sandwich. KFC at its best is a little better for taste, but CFA’s quality control is better, KFC is troublingly variable.

Anyhow, a CFA in Chicago would probably do pretty darn well.

Time to stand up to liberal name calling.

We are 'guilty as charged' - we believe marriage is between one man and one woman. We're sorry liberals are unable to understand people who think differently than they do - but we're tired of being bullied by them.

As Rush said today, maybe if the CFA’s CEO had been a mobster, it would have been okay.

Lets see Chicago values (shootings, gangs) or Chik-fil-A values. C-F-A is better.

Yeah. My wife and I were shocked and remarked how awful he looked. We figured he was on drugs.
