“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city. We’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion.”
– Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino, in response to statements made by Chick-fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, that gay marriage will bring God’s judgment on America.
I hate to see a popular restaurant get wrapped up in something as innocuous as gay marriage – especially one I like so much! I used to visit Chick-fil-A all the time, often while heading into work. A Chick-fil-A chicken biscuit with jelly and a large sweet tea could get me ready for the day better than a 4-pack of Red Bull! Sadly, I can’t bring myself to support a company that interjects itself into politics over gay marriage. Poverty, failing test scores – that I can understand. But, same-sex marriage? How the hell does that figure into a chicken sandwich? Americans can politicize anything!
