What wondrous, inspirational news!!
Major props to the city of Boston, who dismantled plans to introduce the ig'nant, no-homo, fast food joint Chick-fil-A into their cobblestone surroundings!
The execs of the super popular restaurant were hoping to bring their waffle fries and special sauce to a spot near Boston's famed and historic Freedom Trail…
But only SOME are free to eat the crispy chicken, right guys? Ha!
The Atlanta-based chicken-sandwich chain is notorious for supporting anti-gay groups, and Chick-fil-A's president Dan Cathy recently said gay marriage is “inviting God’s judgment on our nation.”
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against the population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”
As much as we miss ourselves a spicy, peanut-oil fried chicken sandwich, standing up for equality, respect, and tolerance is infinitely worth it!
Hooray for gay! Down with Chick-fil-A!
