Chicago mayor attacks Chik-a-fila
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS: When Chik-a-fila announced that they were anti-gay marriage, there were some supporters and than some well people who didn’t like that one bit.
Enter: Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel who today further attacked the fast food chain for promoting ‘anti-gay’ instead of equality, and pretty much laughing at their attempt to open a new store in his city.
Emanuel vowed to block Chik-a-fila from doing such a thing, for good.
“Same sex marriage, same-sex couples — that’s the civil rights fight of our time. To have those discriminatory policies from the top down is just not something that we’re open to. …We want responsible businesses,” Moreno said.
“If he’s in the business of selling chicken in Chicago, he should be in the business of having equal rights for everyone. Period …. If it looks like a chicken, talks like a chicken, walks like a chicken, it’s a chicken. If you’re saying you don’t respect the values and rights of same-sex couples, that trickles down through the organization. … That’s paramount to the way the company behaves.”
