Dead fish for all, though. Funny how "Chicago values" just entail telling bloodthirsty gangs to go somewhere else, rather than fighting them . . .
Rahm: Chick-fil-A disrespects us
By MACKENZIE WEINGER | 7/25/12 2:18 PM EDTRahm Emanuel on Wednesday said he supports a Chicago alderman’s plan to block the opening of a new Chick-fil-A location in the city because the president opposes gay marriage.
Alderman Proco “Joe” Moreno told the Chicago Tribune on Tuesday he is against the fast food chain opening a store in his neighborhood and that he would deny the restaurant a permit in the 1st Ward. Emanuel told the Tribune in a statement he agreed with Moreno, noting “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values.”
“They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents,” Emanuel said. “This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy said in an interview published July 16 that he is “guilty as charged” in support of “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
“We are a family-owned business, a family-led business and we are married to our first wives,” Cathy told Baptist Press.
