    Rahm: “Chick-fil-A Values Are Not Chicago Values” [W:698]

    Rahm: “Chick-fil-A Values Are Not Chicago Values” | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes

    Officials in at least three cities have vowed to block efforts to open Chick-fil-A restaurants after the company’s president told reporters that he supported the traditional definition of marriage – and warned that redefining marriage might bring God’s judgment on the nation.

    “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” said Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a statement to the Chicago Tribune. “They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents.”
    Emanuel was vowing his support for Alderman Proco Moreno’s announcement that he would block construction of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in his district.
    Once again, freedom of speech only matters if you agree with liberal indoctrination.

    What does any of this have to do with freedom of speech? As far as I know, the Supreme Court has not included opening restaurants as expressions of constitutionally protected speech. Although, you never know after Citizens United. City officials are well within their rights to block a private company from opening locations within their cities. The fact that its concerned with the Chick-fil-A's guy's imbecilic comments about marriage is immaterial.

    Boston Mayor Tom Menino was the first to announce that the Atlanta-based company would not be welcomed in his city.
    “You can’t have a business in the City of Boston that discriminates against a population,” he told the Boston Globe.


    Does Chik-Fil-A not serve homosexual customers? How, precisely, will homosexuals be discriminated against? Will the officials of these cities deny building permits to churches that espouse traditional marriage? Will new businesses be required to sign pledges to support whatever basket of social initiatives that the local city council espouses before being able to set up shop?

    The Boston Globe wondered “which part of the First Amendment does Menino not understand? A business owner’s political or religious beliefs should not be a test for the worthiness of his or her application for a business license.

    Political correctness run amok.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    The term "traditional marriage" always makes me chuckle a bit. A sense of historicity is indispensable when theorizing about politics.

    BTW it's a pity I don't like Chik-Fil-A's food, else I would switch all my fast food consumption to them exclusively.

    considering Chicago is one of the most crime ridden cities in the country and you are more likely to be killed there than in afghanistan...I'd say it's a good thing that chik-fil-a values are not chicago values

    Yeah. When the Boston Globe puts out the article:

    Chick-fil-A Owner Arrested, Executed for Thought-Crimes Against Gay Agenda

    let me know.

    This is just Chicago being stupid. It's discriminatory to punish a business because the owner disagrees with gay marriage. It would be like cities banning Target for supporting them. It hurts business owners and is wrong.
