Yesterday, we reported
on the Chick-fil-A controversy that has been brewing across the country. Well, it looks like this story's heating up a bit.
As the mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Fran all demanded for the organization to get the hell out of Dodge, our urban boss, Mr. Michael R. Bloomberg, took the side of the fast-food chain that echoes its $2 million worth of donations to anti-same-sex-marriage groups. He argued that the government has no right to tell a business what to believe or interfere with its enterprise based on ideological judgment.
Enter City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. The future mayoral candidate drew her line of opposition to the chicken sandwich purveyor, stating
, "Chick-fil-A is not welcome in New York City as long as the company's president welcomes continues to uphold and promote his discriminatory views."
She is referring to President Dan Cathy's remarks on his defense the 'biblical definition of marriage' and how America should stop questioning God - these statements were mentioned in yesterday's piece as well. For Ms. Quinn, the 'biblical definition of marriage' is a far cry from reality, especially since she recently wed
her longtime partner, Kim M. Catullo.
And, with that, she has started her campaign
to boot this organization from NYC's restaurant ranks.
