|Mayor Tom Menino|
Both produce chicken manure.
Update: It gets better. Tom Menino gave public land to an Islamic group to build a mosque. Turns out they are a tad harder on gays than Chick-fil-A, they support executing homosexuals. Opps! Did Chicken ("Not so Little Gut") Menino speak out against that? Nah, being a Democrat is never having to say you are sorry:
Given his stance on Chick-fil-A, would Mayor Tom Menino grant permits to a group that has counted among its leaders a man who has repeatedly called homosexuality a “crime that must be punished” by death?Fortunately there are those on the left who get how stupid Menino is being:
Actually, he has done that . . . and more! Menino effectively gave away city land valued at $1.8 million to the organization, and he gave a speech at its ribbon-cutting ceremony.
It’s the Islamic Society of Boston’s mosque, and when it comes to anti-gay sentiment, one of its early supporters makes Chick-fil-A look like the Provincetown Men’s Chorus.
The government blocking a business from opening based on the owner’s political views is a clear threat to everyone’s freedom of speech—being unpopular doesn’t mean you don’t have rights. It’s only by protecting the rights of those whose views we find odious that we can hope to secure them for ourselves.The Atlantic is also criticizing Menino on this.
Maybe Tom Menino would support a new restaurant in Boston serving crow.
