Another day, another city official disses Chick-fil-A; Philadelphia councilman tells Dan Cathy to 'take a hike'

Councilman Kenney
Dan Cathy, the very spiritual billionaire founder and head of antigay Chick-fil-A, which gave about $4,000,000 to antigay organizations in 2009 and 2010, was hit again by mushrooming disgust over his recent radio comments:
I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage. I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.
The latest pushback came from Philadelphia councilman Jim Kenney. The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that he wrote a letter to Cathy inviting him to "take a hike and take your intolerance with you. There is no place for this type of hate in our great City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection."
     The Inquirer adds that when the City Council returns in September, Kenney plans to introduce a resolution condemning Cathy and the company.

Far right: Chick-fil-A booster and Papillion, NE Mayor David Black, who, in January told the World-Herald that he had Papillion "brochures, fact sheets and other materials put together" in a full court press to recruit the homophobic fast food chain. "We hit it hard," Mayor Black said.
     Today, in respect of Chick-fil-A, Papillion Mayor Black pretended, in comments to the World-Herald, that (despite millions in company donations to some of the most viciously antigay pressure groups in the country) Chick-fil-A's business "has nothing to do with social or political issues."
     Black really should be selling used cars — at a lot cheap enough to match his low-rent lies.
