Chicago alderman Joe Moreno said Wednesday that the fast food chain Chick-fil-A had a “disturbing” history of discrimination.

During an interview with the Baptist Press, Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy insisted the company was “guilty as charged” when it came to supporting anti-gay groups, sparking outrage in the LGBT community.

Moreno recently blocked Chick-fil-A’s effort to build a second restaurant in his Chicago ward, saying that “zoning is not a right.” But on MSNBC, the alderman insisted his decision wasn’t purely based on Cathy’s personal beliefs.


“Cathy also was asked if he would hire a gay individual,” Moreno explained.“He paused for a long while and then said,‘Well, it depends on the circumstances.’ I want clarity.”

“It’s my responsibility to have responsible businesses and part of the businesses responsibility is not have discriminatory policies,” he added.

Moreno said Chick-fil-A had been sued 19 times for discriminating against minority groups.

“Currently there’s a case on the books where a woman has sued the company because the manager told her she was fired because she should stay home and cook and not cook at Chick-fil-A. These things are disturbing. I’m not saying the CEO has to say what I believe in.”

"Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Wednesday."
Does this mean that Chick-fil-A does not value murder and mayhem?

If the Chick-fil-A cows started shooting people, wouldn't that be more fittingly reflective of Chicago values?

Glass houses ... stones ... clueless-caricature public officials.

That means that Chicago does not support discrimination and bias, which, as a Nazi, you obviously do.

Joe Moreno is your source? Really? The same Joe Moreno as written about here?

Illinois corruption 7/26/12: Ex-alderman, county commissioner indicted on bribery charges

Today's Illinois corruption update is a fun one. Well, not fun for those who were formally indicted today. Former Chicago alderman Ambrosio Medrano and Former Cook County commissioner Joseph Moreno were arrested last month on bribery chargers.

----------

Yeah, like everyone should trust a Chicago politician who was just arrested on Bribery charges.

You really are this stupid, aren't you?

Let me provide a little hint for you Sludge/Toidi: Think Brian Ross. Then read what you wrote again. You certainly are stupid.

Good lord, you are a cartoon character. Olive Oyl was not as stupid as you.

Get back on topic Sludge. The topic is that Chicago Alderman JOe Marino is a corrupt Chicago politician and has no credibility in what he said in the interview your other ID posted above.

Stay on topic Sludge. Think Brian Ross. Think about how f-ing stupid you are.

In today's litigious society I doubt that you can name me one company with more than 500 employees that has NOT been sued for discrimination.

It is the lazy persons trump card.

This is the same Rahm Emanual who threatened Lori Swanson with a letter:

Funny, the Love Canal folks were lazy, huh...Here I thought they were victims of corporate greed and as Americans, they had the right to justice....

The explosion was triggered by a record amount of rainfall. Shortly thereafter, the leaching began.

I visited the canal area at that time. Corroding waste-disposal drums could be seen breaking up through the grounds of backyards. Trees and gardens were turning black and dying. One entire swimming pool had been had been popped up from its foundation, afloat now on a small sea of chemicals. Puddles of noxious substances were pointed out to me by the residents. Some of these puddles were in their yards, some were in their basements, others yet were on the school grounds. Everywhere the air had a faint, choking smell. Children returned from play with burns on their hands and faces.

And then there were the birth defects. The New York State Health Department is continuing an investigation into a disturbingly high rate of miscarriages, along with five birth-defect cases detected thus far in the area.

I recall talking with the father of one the children with birth defects. "I heard someone from the press saying that there were only five cases of birth defects here," he told me. "When you go back to your people at EPA, please don't use the phrase 'only five cases.' People must realize that this is a tiny community. Five birth defect cases here is terrifying."

A large percentage of people in Love Canal are also being closely observed because of detected high white-blood-cell counts, a possible precursor of leukemia.

When the citizens of Love Canal were finally evacuated from their homes and their neighborhood, pregnant women and infants were deliberately among the first to be taken out.

"We knew they put chemicals into the canal and filled it over," said one woman, a long-time resident of the Canal area., "but we had no idea the chemicals would invade our homes. We're worried sick about the grandchildren and their children."

Two of this woman's four grandchildren have birth defects. The children were born and raised in the Love Canal community. A granddaughter was born deaf with a cleft palate, an extra row of teeth, and slight retardation. A grandson was born with an eye defect.

Of the chemicals which comprise the brew seeping through the ground and into homes at Love Canal, one of the most prevalent is benzene -- a known human carcinogen, and one detected in high concentrations. But the residents characterize things more simply.

"I've got this slop everywhere," said another man who lives at Love Canal. His daughter also suffers from a congenital defect.

Sludge still thinks that a Chicago Alderman that gets himself arrested on bribery charges is a role model for all other Democrats.

Great choice Sludge.

Dan Cathy is a good Christian man with great values. Speaking in support of the bible's definition of marriage is the right thing to do.

However, I ask why he said nothing about another great Christian man, Ted Haggar, who stuck his Chick-Fil-A in the butts of boys for years.

Those aren't Chicago values. Those are Republican, Dan Cathy's values.

I'll be voting Democrat for the first time in my life this November.

Sludge, stop following me around and trying to insult me. I just got an e-mail from the Admin at Topix where they said thank you for telling them of the activities of a number of the posters on here and that they will be monitoring the Mpls Forum much closer in the future.

Do you really want to get banned again?

Why such anger, McFired?

Don't take everything so personal. If you can't take the heat, hire an illegal to do the cookin' as so many of you conservatives do!

Oh, by the way, Mrs. Fred just left my house, she was pretty tight. I now see why you're so insecure. Poor guy.
