    ************************************************** **********************************
    Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno says the door isn’t entirely closed on a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening in his 1st ward.

    Moreno told WBEZ that the owners seeking to build the restaurant have said they won’t support any groups with a political agenda, including those with an anti-gay marriage stance.

    Moreno says if he gets an explicit guarantee from the franchise owner he will consider granting zoning rights to a new Chick-fil-A in Logan Square

    As I said, they will get their restaurant. It's all political posturing. Once the issue is out of the spotlight the politicians will relent. Business as usual in Chicago.

    The gay lobby doesn't intend to let the spotlight fade. They are responding with the same zeal that was directed at Brad Pitt's mother for simply wriiting a letter to her local newspaper editorial page.
    ************************************************** *************************************************
    (CBS News) Gay rights group Equality Illinois is asking gay and lesbian couples to go to their local Chick-Fil-A restaurant next Friday for a "kiss-in" campaign, which the group is promoting along with other gay rights organizations nationwide, reports CBS affiliate WBBM in Chicago.


    The "kiss-in" is one of several public protests against Chick-Fil-A that have come about since CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview with the Baptist Press he was "guilty as charged" when asked about his "support of the traditional family."

    What did the "gay lobby" have to do with Brad Pitt's mom's letter?

    The whole thing will be forgotten within a couple weeks. Just watch this thread fade into oblivion. It isn't any different than how the World Trade Center Mosque story dissipated from public view once midterm elections were over.

    Once again, freedom of speech only matters if you agree with liberal indoctrination.
    Once again I find it hilarious to watch people lodge a free speech complaint via complaining about what someone else said. Does not the Rahm get free speech rights too?

    They got riled up out in Hollywood. Perez Hilton and his NoH8 movement, the Hollywood Reporter, a few others. The poor woman was villified and threatened and withdrew into seclusion. The bullying behavior by those who allegedly abhor bullies worked rather well. I'm sure she's learned to keep her mouth shut and only read from the script from here on out. And what a wuss her son Brad is. Not a word in her defence.

    I just have to say: just because she's his mother doesn't mean his an obligation to defend her every position if he doesn't agree with it.

    I agree, he definitely doesn't have to defend her views or opinions. However, a plea to the gay community which apparently adores him, for civility towards his mother was certainly warranted.

    No it's not. He doesn't have to defend her.

    LOL. She's his MOTHER! He doesn't HAVE to call off the dogs, but I think I'm safe in saying that just about any dutiful son would. He is definitely a wuss.
