Why Did the Chicken Cross the Gays?
Add Ramen Noodle Emanuel to the list of liberal mayors wanting to ban Chick-fil-a from opening restaurants in his "fair" city. Dan Cathy, the president of Chick-fil-a had the audacity in an interview to say that his company is unapologetically in favor of traditional marriage. Unsurprisingly, this has the liberal and GLBT special interest groups with their undies in a very tight knot.
Interestingly, the obligatory calls for a boycott (which is well within their rights as consumers) is not enough for some. No they need government officials using governmental power to bar a private business from opening because of religious opinions held by the business owners with which they disagree.
Now last time I was at Chick-fil-a, I wasn't required to kiss my wife to prove that I was heterosexual prior to purchasing a sandwich, so I'm not sure what grounds libs have for claiming discriminatory practices. What I really hope is that Chicago and Boston are successful in barring Chick-fil-a in opening in their cities.
I would love to see the Supreme Court get a hold of this one! That is, as long as Chief Justice Roberts is able to kick that meth addiction before the case reaches him.
