We have reached the appalling point in our decay into liberal totalitarianism where companies associated with traditional morality are not allowed to do business by militantly degenerate government authorities. Flamboyantly perverted Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced that Chick-fil-A will not be permitted to create jobs by building restaurants in his fiefdom because the CEO of the company opposes the blasphemous travesty of homosexual “marriage”:
“What the CEO has said as it relates to gay marriage and gay couples is not what I believe, but more importantly, it’s not what the people of Chicago believe. We just passed legislation as it relates to civil union and my goal and my hope … is that we now move on recognizing gay marriage. I do not believe that the CEO’s comments … reflects who we are as a city.”
The thought crime that precipitated this latest liberal assault on free enterprise:
Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy was quoted last week as saying he was “guilty as charged” for supporting, what he called the “biblical definition” of marriage as between a man and a woman.
“We are very much supportive of the family — 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. We give God thanks for that,” Cathy was quoted as saying.
Because he holds this highly conventional view — which any decent person would find admirable — his company is effectively banned from expanding business in the cesspool of corruption that gave us Barack Hussein Obama.
Emanuel piously screeches that Christian values “are not Chicago values.” What are Chicago values? Here’s a hint: Emanuel has opened his arms in welcome to the rabidly anti-Semitic, anti-Caucasian, and anti-American lunatic Louis Farrakhan.
Chicago isn’t alone in persecuting Chick-fil-A:
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has said Chick-fil-A “doesn’t belong in Boston” because of Cathy’s discriminatory stance.
The word “discriminatory” in this context is particularly absurd, considering that the discrimination is against anyone who will not abandon conventional morality and embrace repugnant sexual abnormalities in the name of political correctness.
Because government has bloated to the point that it has total power over all human activity, verminous bureaurats will have no trouble keeping businesses associated with decency out of town:
Moreno said he has an ace in his back pocket if he runs into legal trouble: traffic and congestion issues caused by the store that have been the subject of behind-the-scenes negotiations for the last nine months.
“The Jim Henson Company has celebrated and embraced diversity and inclusiveness for over fifty years and we have notified Chick-Fil-A that we do not wish to partner with them on any future endeavors. Lisa Henson, our CEO is personally a strong supporter of gay marriage and has directed us to donate the payment we received from Chick-Fil-A to GLAAD.”
GLAAD is a warped moonbat sect devoted to mainstreaming depravity.
To his credit, Mike Huckabee has declared August 1 to be Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day. But why only August 1? If there’s a franchise within driving distance, countermoonbats should celebrate Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day at least once a week.
