Anti-religion Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno has affirmed that the City of Chicago does not welcome Christians and stands four square against Christian principles. Further, Moreno says he has the “moral support” of Mayor Rahm Emanuel for his pronouncement.
Moreno is trying to shut down the opening of a new Chick-Fil-A restaurant in the city. Why? Because the chief of the company — well-known as enthusiastic boosters of Christian ideals — recently affirmed that his company does not support the homosexual lifestyle.
Moreno got on his high horse claiming that the fast food chain “discriminates” against homosexuals. This, of course, is a lie. No where has Chick-Fil-A been accused of any concrete discrimination against gays.
For his part, Mayor Emanuel agreed with liar Moreno.
“Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” the mayor said in a statement when asked about Moreno’s decision. “They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”
As I noted, Chick-Fil-A has for many, many years been known as hearty boosters of Christian ideals. The company even closes its stores on Sundays to observe the Christian Sabbath despite the millions a year in lost sales that practice incurs.
So, with Emanuel saying that Chick-Fil-A’s values are “not Chicago’s values,” he is directly saying that the City of Chicago is against Christians.
Nice, isn’t it?
What is most interesting is that these two half-wit libs are whining about the so-called discrimination against gays — and that is bad — but they both have no problem at all with discrimination against Christians — and that is good.
Further, both this anti-Christian alderman and Mayor Emanuel are saying that Christians do not deserve their Constitutional rights to free speech and fee thought. If Christians don’t toe the Mayor’s line of thinking, why they are to be punished.
But there is also one more point to make, here. Is Rahm Emanuel anti-Islam, then? After all, Islam also has proscriptions against homosexuality (not that all Muslims observe that proscription, fo course). So, should Emanuel and his lackey Alderman Moreno start closing down Mosques in Chicago? They should if they are going to follow their discrimination against Christians, anyway.
