Boston mayor vows to keep Chick-fil-A out of city

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BOSTON -- The mayor of Boston is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in the city after the company's president spoke out publicly against gay marriage.

Mayor Thomas Menino told the Boston Herald ( http://bit.ly/OevB9z) on Thursday that he doesn't want a business in the city "that discriminates against a population."

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press this week that his privately owned company is "guilty as charged" in support of what he called the biblical definition of the family.

The fast-food chicken sandwich chain later said that it strives to "treat every person with honor, dignity and respect - regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender."

Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has more than 1,600 stores nationwide but just two in Massachusetts, both located in suburban malls.

I guess this guy is trying to capture the gay vote. Marriage is an institution between a MAN and a WOMAN according to the Bible which also denounces gays! So if the marriage thing is Biblical then gay marriage is definitely out of the question. Homosexuals only want to be "MARRIED" for benefits reasons anyway. I will triple my expenditure at CHICK- FIL- A!!! Heck yeah.Stick to your guns the REAL America has your back. EAT MORE CHICKEN!!!!

What part of "FREEDOM OF SPEECH" does this idiot mayor not understand?
