Dan Cathy, President of the popular food chain Chick-fil-A unleashed a mighty liberal assault when he commented that he supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.”
Cathy’s comments sparked angry protests from a number of gay rights and LGBT groups, including the mayor of Boston who said he wouldn’t allow Chick-fil-A to open business in his city.
Similar sentiment arose in Chicago where an Alderman said he was working to block Chick-fil-A. Windy City mayor Rahm Emanuel punctuated the outrage saying, “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values.”
Of course, this was just before Emanuel welcomed Islam leader Louis Farrahkhan to Chicago. Apparently, the radical leader and hater of traditional American values better represents the “family values” of Chicago?
Whether you agree or disagree with Cathy’s comments, he has a right to speak his mind. Elected officials who should know better have no authority or right to censor Cathy’s speech or use government blockades of business over differing opinions.
