NYC Mayor: Chick-fil-A Flap Over Gay Marriage Is None of Government’s Business
Washington Post ^ | Friday, July 27

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says a fast food chain’s opposition to gay marriage is none of “the government’s business.”

Bloomberg said Friday that he strongly disagrees with the mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Francisco in that regard.

The billionaire businessman-turned-politician called the three “good mayors” but disagrees with them in this case. He says cities should not ask about political beliefs before issuing a permit.

Take Notiec: Now it's "Political belief" instead of "moral belief".

That's so they can put you in jail for discrimination.

Is this satire, or did uber-nanny Bloomberg actually have a brief moment of clarity???

But everything else is. How much salt or soda you have. Who you marry, etc., etc..

Damage control from a Megalomaniacal Demagogue with a Napoleon Complex?

We should start calling him “The Little Corporal”.

Hey, it worked for him on the Ground Zero mosque permit.

My gosh, I FINALLY agree with Bloomingidoitberg. It is none of the government's business.

Of course, itis NOT the government's business if you want a 32 oz soda, too.

Would not a government official (Mayor) who is trying to muzzle someone’s religious and/or political belief be in violation of the First Amendment? Once there is a change in the leadership of the justice department, the head of Chick-fil-A should demand a civil rights violation prosecution.

Me and my friends call him “Michael, the mincing Mayor of Megalomania”. His #1 priority for NYC is exterior decorating, making NYC faaaaabulous, while at the same time acting as a Despot. There is not a block in that city that isn’t undergoing decorating by Michael.

Ha!! Even Bloomberg knows a rotten fish when he sees one. Even the ACLU is supporting Chick-fil-A on this.

I’m 5’4” and I don’t have a complex about my height (or lack thereof).

But I agree with your statement. We ought to start calling him something negative that involves height.

He can afford a lawyer who can counsel him faster than he can shoot his mouth off.
