If you’re not familiar with Mumbles Menino it’s hard to stress how much a bumbling fool this guy is. Some of his greatest hits:
In a sharply worded letter that has gone viral, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino chided Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy for his “prejudiced statements” against same-sex marriage and said that having a branch of the fast food chain across from City Hall “would be an insult.”
“I was angry to learn on the heels of your prejudiced statements about your search for a site to locate in Boston,” the letter reads. “There is no place for discrimination on Boston’s Freedom Trail and no place for your company alongside it.”
The letter, which was posted on the Boston community page on Facebook Wednesday afternoon, had nearly 60,000 likes, more than 20,000 shares and some 4,500 comments just before 5:30 p.m.
Menino first expressed his opposition to the restaurant last Thursday, when The Boston Herald reported that Chick-fil-A was scouting locations including across from City Hall and in Faneuil Hall — both along the Freedom Trail. (The letter was dated Friday, but only went viral on Wednesday.)
Cathy has been under fire ever since telling Baptist Press that Chick-fil-A is “guilty as charged” in support of “the biblical definition of the family unit,” and later saying on the “The Ken Coleman Show” that he prays “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.”
