Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has ticked off the flocks by criticizing Chick-fil-A.
Days after the big city boss blasted the chicken chain over its president’s stance on same-sex marriage, an influential Baptist minister and Cardinal Francis George of the Archdiocese of Chicago struck back. The religious leaders, who support the traditional view of marriage, were incensed at Emanuel’s claim that “Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago’s values.”
“Do not disrespect us…We, too, are Chicago,” the Rev. Charles Lyons of the Armitage Baptist Church thundered from the pulpit Sunday.
