BOSTON MAYOR: LOOKS LIKE I CAN’T BAN CHICK-FIL-A

The mayor added: “I make mistakes all the time. That’s a Menino-ism.”

To all those who protested this: Job well done!

 

(Hotair) Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino repeated today that he doesn’t want Chick-fil-A in Boston, but he backed away from a threat to actively block the fast-food chain from setting up shop in the city.

“I can’t do that. That would be interference to his rights to go there,” Menino said, referring to company president Dan Cathy, who drew the mayor’s wrath by going public with his views against same-sex marriage.

The mayor added: “I make mistakes all the time. That’s a Menino-ism.”

The Herald first reported last week that Menino warned “it will be very difficult” for Chick-fil-A to obtain licenses for a restaurant in Boston.

The Atlanta-based chicken chain has been eyeing a space near the Freedom Trail and across the street from City Hall, among other locations, for its first eatery in Boston.

“I sent (the landlord) a letter, but that’s all. There’s no pressure by me to allow this place to be rented,” he said.

    MAYBE HE SHOULD ENGAGE BRAIN AND STILL KEEP HIS MOUTH SHUT AND THINK THINGS OUT FIRST. OK, STILL KEEP IT SHUT.

    what ever happened to the first amendment? Freedom of speech and religion. They asked the owner of Chick fil a what his views were, and he told them. Now people aren’t liking his response. What did they expect from a Christian owned company?
    The mayor has his views as well, but it should not stop a business to come in to generate jobs. People have forgotten the sanctity of marriage, and family.
