Rahm Emanuel Say he will Block Chick Fil A From Opening any More Stores in Chicago

Chick Fil A backlash continues!!

Chicago Alderman
Proco “Joe” Moreno says he won’t allow Chick-Fil-A to open a restaurant
in his Northwest Side ward because of the company’s anti-gay worldview,
and Mayor Rahm Emanuel is offering his support, the Chicago Tribune reports:

you are discriminating against a segment of the community, I don’t want
you in the 1st Ward,” Moreno told the Tribune on Tuesday.

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.”

The proposed restaurant, in the Logan Square neighborhood, would be the second to open in the Windy City.

The Mayor of BOSTON, has also vowed to KEEP  CHICK FIL A OUT of their city!!
I am SO PROUD, that our Mayor, Rahm Emanueal and the Mayor of Boston has stood up to this company!

If you are eating at the store on Chicago Ave, PLEASE STOP!!

Lauren Silich, the owner of Chicago’s sole Chick-fil-A, is asking Emanuel to have a sit down to iron things out.

The Chicago Tribune reports:

[Silich] invited Emanuel to meet her, her husband and
management staff at her restaurant.
 The mayor’s office had no immediate

In an interview today, Silich addressed Emanuel’s comments.

“I get it,” Silich said in an interview. “I’m from here as well.”

“I just want people to know there’s a local face to this
controversy,” she added.

“We’re not a corporate face. We love our city.”

In a letter sent to the media, Silich also said that she and her
staff are committed “serving all of our guests with honor, dignity and
respect.” She went on to highlight Chick-fil-A’s immediate economic
impact: “We alone created 97 jobs this past year and our passion is
building leaders for future generations, regardless of sexual
orientation or beliefs.”

While this may be true, she may not believe what the CEO believes, and she may treat gay people “with respect”  HOWEVER. a portion of ALL PROFITS go to fight GAYS AND LESBIANS.

So go to another chicken shack! It is sad this local store is caught in the crossfire.
