Chick-fil-A: Banned from Boston!

by at . Comments

Boston residents will not be eating more chicken any time soon. At least not from Chick-fil-A.

Following that company's President coming out and admitting he's against gay marriage, Boston Mayor Mayor Thomas Menino has halted plans for Chick-fil-A to open in his city and said in a statement:

“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.”

Chick-fil-A Restaurant

Actor Ed Helms first brought attention to Chick-fil-A's practices in a Tweet. Since then, other stars and organizations, such as Jim Henson Company, have also cut ties with the restaurant chain.


What kind of country are we turning in to when freedom of speech is treated with this kind of backlash and ignorance. Besides, they never said they discriminated against gays, they said they don't believe in same sex marriage.


chick started in Georgia and its all over the south since the 70's and we could care less about there views on gays. You can ban all you want but they were established long before a liberal ever bit into a waffle fry. Get over yourselfs.


This is so stupid. Chick fil A even said in their release they don't discriminate to any customers. Their view as a corporation is to adhere to Christian values. Not like this is new they are closed Sundays and everybody knows why.....Boston is so stupid & so is the mayor. Oh well they are missing out chicken ever. Way to go another liberal city costing potential jobs from the public


I'll eat there any day. Marriage is between a man and woman. A person can't marry a chicken, a sibling, have 4 wives or marry a dog. Gays can have insurance benefits from their gay lover. Marriage is between a man and woman.


They should be banned from everywhere.
