Quote of the Day

“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!
