Chicago Chick-fil-A owner wants to talk with Emanuel

Jul 26, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Chicago Tribune

The owner of the city's only Chick-fil-A restaurant today asked Mayor Rahm Emanuel to meet with her after Emanuel said the anti-gay views of the fast-food chain's president don't mesh with Chicago values.

Why in the world does the local government/dictators get to discriminate against any business?

THEY in turn are discriminating against many citizens who would enjoy Chick Fil A. The local government/dictators are the BIGGEST discriminators!!!

If customers do not want to go they don't have to go, but GOOD GREIF they should have the OPPORTUNITY... and it's the OPPORTUNITY the local government/dictators want to TAKE AWAY!!

Shameful and dreadful!!!

what makes you think chick-fil-A has the right to discriminate certain custumers based on their sexual orientation? "YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW" and that's the bottom line.

What makes you think Chik-Fil-A has discriminated against anyone? Has any gay ever been refused service? Do you know of even one incident where a gay person wasn't hired? I'm sure it would be trotted out all over the internet if there was such an event. Having a belief (a very popular belief, BTW, judging how many states have voted AGAINST "gay marriage") is not a discrimination. But keep up the good work. I've been hoping for an incident to wake up the population about the nastinest and left-leaning attitudes of gays. This Chik-Fil-A issue seems to be doing the trick. As they say, God works in mysterious ways.:-)

the majority heterosexual community did a good job by *IFRINGING* the rights of a minority by oppossing gay marriage in most states however, gays have come a long way to have ssm legal in 7 states, we don't demand "acceptance" we demand "equality" big difference! Don't sugar coat employment for gays when you know they are always discriminated against, employers know better not to discriminate unless they can afford a lawsuit and tolerate a headheache they don't need. Someone's personal lifestyle is no one's bussiness unless they have a criminal background that includes child molestation, then i can understand that employment should be denied , that crime comes from straights and gays i assume.

are You aware of what this thead is about? chick-fill-A main reason of this scandal is that they stated that marriage should be between a man and a woman, not in all states is like that, so do some research and find out more about the reason of chick-fill-A's comments.

Best part of this whole Chik-Fil-A issue - it is giving lots of people who don't usually pay that much attention to gays a chance to see them at their very worst - nasty, left-leaning, and extremely intolerant. I think it is going to be a real wake-up call to folks who have been somewhat open to the idea of gays to see this very, very bad view of them and realize this is the real deal. Every black cloud has a silver lining, and God works in mysterious ways. BTW, you've got the kiss-in date wrong.

I think it is going to be a real wake-up call to folks who have been somewhat apathetic to the issue of gay rights and same sex marriage. After all what's BETTER than seeing this very very bad view of those opposing Gay rights and realize this is a REAL social and civil rights issue.

Yes Pam, You are right- every black cloud does have a silver lining, and God does work in mysterious ways.

That's how horrible america has become, bigotry, hate discrimination and intolerance is only some of the few examples that the average american now in days delivers, that is also another example of why a lot of countries hate america , greed is another one, welcome to the "DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA".

No one has been discriminated against by Chick Fil A!

Chick Fil A is the one being discriminated against when the local government/dictators think they can withhold the development of a business due to personal believe. In fact it is not legal!

Hide and watch!

In fact you who make this such an issue are doing your selfs a dis-service. These are the kind of actions that cause you to be viewed as such haters! You want tolerance... YET you do not demonstrate it. Chick Fil A DID NOT DISCRIMINATE....THEY ARE ONES BEING DISCRIMINATED. It makes y'all look like wackos. It's a shame, because I know homosexual people that are embarassed by the actions of a few. You do them more harm. I feel bad for them.
