Skinning Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A VS. big city

By Trent Tibbitts

How can we sit by and let big city mayors intimidate christians and privet business owner. This is a free country with freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of assemble. Isn’t it?????

Raham Emanuel said that Chick-fil-A values were not Chicago’s values. Well no joke, that is why Chicago is the most crime ridden city in the U.S. They are one-third the size of New York and have three times the murders. If the mayor and the city had more values of Chick-fil-A it would be a better place.

From LA Times:

(  In light of the ongoing Chick-fil-A same-sex marriage controversy, a Los Angeles City Council candidate sent a letter Friday to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, urging him to “lead a delegation of local clergy and representatives of the LGBT community” to meet with company President Dan Cathy and convey to him the “destructive nature” of his company’s stance.

“I think city officials must play a larger role. It’s a growing company with stores in 39 states. There is too much at stake here,” said Mitch O’Farrell, who is seeking to represent the 13th District, which includes all or parts of Hollywood, Koreatown, Silver Lake, Echo Park and Glassell Park. “The longer this drags on, the more pain and anxiety it’s going to cause people. I think it’s time for leadership to step in.”)

This gay thinks it’s groverments role to tell a privet buissnes own how to run his buissness. Wake up America and take a stand.

From The Chicago Tribune

(Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel defended his comments that Chick-fil-A does not share Chicago values as gay rights activists and supporters of marriage equality staged a national “Kiss In” at Chick-fil-A restaurants Friday.

Francis Cardinal George says city officials like the mayor should not be in charge of deciding the values of Chicagoans.

Emanuel is not the only city official expressing his views on the topic.

Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno has said he would oppose Chick-fil-A’s plan to expand in Chicago.)

This is not about guy rights, which there is no such think. All Americans are afforded the same rights. It is about government over stepping its bounds.

From the New York Times

(The mayor of Boston told the chain, “I urge you to back out of your plans to locate in Boston.”

The mayor of San Francisco, where the closest Chick-fil-A is 40 miles away, said, “I strongly recommend that they not try to come any closer.”

Harold Krent, dean of the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Kent College of Law, says the government cannot stop business from expanding based on an owner’s opposition to gay marriage.

“This is where a fine line is drawn, and you have to make clear that official decisions, permitting, licensing aren’t based on religious beliefs or political ideology,” said Krent.

Krent added that when elected officials express their opposition based on differing values, it draws more public scrutiny to zoning, permitting and licensing.)

Mr. Krent is right. Thank you Sir.
