(link) that Chick-fil-A's president's public support for the traditional definition of marriage is inconsistent with "Chicago's values." Chicago's values. This comes on the heels of a Chicago alderman's declaration that he'll try to block a Chick-fil-A from opening a site in his ward because he doesn't agree with the company's president's personal views, echoing the recent similar pronouncement from Boston's benighted mayor. And, of course, there is not a hint or allegation that the company discriminates in any way against anybody or is breaking any laws whatsoever. Link
Putting aside the ridiculousness and frighteningly-threatening specter of the mayor of a municipality in a free republic declaring approved specific social values and punishment for dissenters, just what might "Chicago values" be? Profound, chronic, and costly vile corruption by the Democrat party which has fooled and helped to further impoverish enough poor and immigrants to keep it in power? (The unofficial motto of the city, after all, according to the late Chicago-guy Mike Royko is "Where's Mine", paired with an open and outstretched palm, as in "where's my share of the take".) Record-breaking street violence and gang murder?
By the way, the Catholic Church endorses the traditional definition of marriage (as does B Obama at least publicly). Is Emanuel anti-Catholic? And, many and perhaps most Muslim organizations seem quite, ahem, supportive of the traditional definition of marriage. Is Rahm anti-Muslim, heaven forbid to a liberal?
Another Chicago value in action from Rahm Emanuel, who's nominally Jewish but is actually a high priest of the Church of Liberalism: vicious anti-Semitism and anti-white ideology is hunky dory and so apparently a "Chicago Value". Headline today at the very liberal Chicago Sun-Times: "Rahm welcomes help from [Nation of Islam leader] Farrakahn, ignores anti-Semitic remarks". (Another link.)
