Proco “Joe” Moreno, a Chicago Northside Alderman have jumped on the “Chic-fil-A Not In My City “ bandwagon alongside Boston’s Mayor Tom Menino.
And joining him Proco no less is Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emmanuel.
If you are discriminating against a segment of the community, “I don’t want you in the 1st Ward,” Moreno told the Tribune on Tuesday.
Moreno stated his position in strong terms, referring to Cathy’s “bigoted, homophobic comments” in a proposed opinion page piece that an aide also sent to Tribune reporters. “Because of this man’s ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A’s permit to open a restaurant in the 1st Ward.” The alderman has the ideological support of Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” the mayor said in a statement when asked about Moreno’s decision. “They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”
Chick-fil-A was in talks to open a restaurant, in the Logan Square neighborhood, or Moreno’s ward until Moreno and Emmanuel told the bigoted company to CLUCK OFF!
BEFORE those of you out there you bleeding heart homo’s out there start with the “Chick-fil-A has a right to open a restaurant anywhere they want despite what they think” spiel
Actually they don’t.
ESPECIALLY in this case since both Boston and Chicago have very strong anti-lgbt discrimination laws and its a proven fact that the company donates heavily with its profits to anti-gay hate groups including Exodus International.
