Philadelphia City Council to consider a resolution condemning Chick-fil-A
Filthadelphia, the land of booing Santa Clause now may ‘condemn’ Chick-Fil-A for audacity of them invoking their First Amendment rights. According to Todd Starnes, the Philadelphia City Council will consider a resolution condemning Chick-fil-A for what one city leader called “anti-American” attitudes that promote “hatred, bigotry and discrimination.”
City Councilman Jim Kenney sent a letter to Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy telling him to “take a hike and take your intolerance with you.”
Alternate headline: Philadelphia City Councilman Jim Kenney calls free speech and freedom of religion “unAmerican values.”
“My effort is to allow people to understand that in certain segments of corporate America there are folks who are using their dollars to promote hatred, bigotry and discrimination,” Kenney told Fox News.
He is introducing a resolution to “condemn this anti-American attitude of trying to deny civil liberties that every American enjoys.”
Kenney joined the mayors of Boston, Chicago and now San Francisco in blasting the Atlanta-based company for supporting a biblical definition of marriage – a union between one man and one woman.
Cathy told Baptist Press that he is “guilty as charged” when it comes to supporting traditional marriage.
