Intolerant advocate of tolerance

Calls for inclusiveness but refuses to be inclusive of Christians

Mayor Thomas M. Menino is vowing to block Chick-fil-A from bringing its Southern-fried fast-food empire to Boston — possibly to a popular tourist spot just steps from the Freedom Trail — after the family-owned firm’s president suggested gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”

“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,” Menino told the Herald yesterday.

“That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”

Chick-fil-A has been swept up in a growing national controversy over company president Dan Cathy’s remarks questioning gay marriage and lauding the traditional family.

This shows the danger of the requirement for citizens to get permission from a central authority to do business and earn a living. If the fascist central authority disapproves of views, thoughts, and words, they will attempt to deny you the ability to earn a living. Their use of the word freedom is nauseatingly hypocritical. What they really mean is “freedom to believe and think the way we want you to think and believe.”

I wonder if the Mayor is going to close down all the Halal restaurants in Boston given their owners very unlikely don't support gay marriage? All Chick Fil A needs to do is rename itself to Mohammed's House of Muslim Cuisince and liberals will start swooning and completely forget about it.

Another funny thing is that the entire Dearborn, MI school system uses only Halal meat in its cafeterias. Do libs think the companies supplying the halal meat support gay marriage? Boycott them libs?

LOL @ the liberal limp wristers.

Would the mayor also condemn all the orthodox Jews doing business in Boston, since they too are against homosexuality.

Once again, we see yet another clear example of those on the left, those who demand total tolerance from everyone, showing how, to them, tolerance is a one-way street.

Just because you guys are a bunch of homophobes and racists doesn't mean that the Mayor of Boston has to be either.

Is proposing an unconstitutional bill of attainder for exercising one's free speech rights something liberals think is a good thing? So if people don't think properly, it's okay to violate the constitution?

Living in Boston for three years turned me from a jaded New Yorker into a dedicated one. The term for the people there is "Massholes." They continually yelled at each other about the parking spots in front of my little apartment overlooking the Harvard Inn. Where I stationed my shopping cart at a food coop required strategy in order to avoid some gruff hippie waiting next to it in order to berate me for lack of civility since he couldn't reach for the wheat spaghetti without having to move it a few inches as I was in another isle. Harvard yard had a huge set of stairs leading to the main library, like Columbia in NYC does, but unlike Columbia, there were never any people lounging on the stairs, joyfully, whereas even as I headed home from lab each night at 3AM, there were casual friendly glances from bright students to cheer me up. The winters there are awful too, despite being close to the ocean. The subways close down before the bars close, impossibly, too, so nightlife in Boston proper is only for locals. Nobody returns eye contact there, period. On the subways they stare at the ground in front of them like extras in a Orwell movie. I'll take the Upper West Side any day to Little Russia.

Another case of liberals offended by facts and reality. better for people to die than to offend someone.

I don't get it. Chick-Fil-a is anti-gay, and a representative of the gay community says that most in the gay community won't eat there. A community has a gay bar and straight people refuse to patronize it. How is this really any different?

It's about a patron choosing to patronize a business or not. Has nothing to do with discrimination, hatred, or homophobia.

Chick-Fil-A is not anti-gay; the owner does not approve of homosexuality. Chick-Fil-A is a company that hires gay employees and serves gay customers.

Boycott Boston!

The citizens need to vote this jerk out of office

Tolerance is not something the left is very good at. But I feel nothing but pity for the people of Massachusetts - Chik-Fil-A makes a tasty sammich!

It should be very worrying to have any life-style views or attitudes in common with Moslems!

Boston, another one of those grand liberal social experiments that did what they all do. It failed.

Maybe the Mayor should just kick out of town everybody that doesn't agree with him - then Boston would be a Utopia.

What a bunch of Massholes.

4:30,

Would Boston still be considered a city if there was only one resident?

The good mayor would be singing another tune if he found out about the Pink Pistols, a gay, pro-second amendment group. I don't think they're welcome in his Diver-city-by-the-sea.

Let the citizens not a lowlife little worm like that mayor decide
