MORE AGENDA 21 THINKING – Mayor of Boston (strong ICLEI supporter) wants to BAN CHICK-FIL-A from Beantown! So does Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno!

Looks like the Chick-Fil-A controversy has drawn out the best or worst in the pro-Agenda 21 pols around the nation!

In Boston, Mayor Thomas Menino, a strong supporter of ICLEI, threatens to ban the chicken place from Beantown!

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino sent Cathy a letter informing him “There is no place for discrimination on Boston’s Freedom Trail and no place for your company alongside it.”

Just to prove Boston is not alone in bullying, another strong climate supporter, Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno, says no Chick-fil-A in his district:

A Chicago politician said he will block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant in his ward, following anti-gay marriage remarks by the fast food chain’s president.

Alderman Joe Moreno, who represents Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood, plans to use his aldermanic privilege, a Chicago tradition in which City Council members defer to aldermen on local matters, to block the restaurant’s permit.

“It’s a very diverse ward– economically, racially, and diverse in sexual orientation,” Moreno told “We’ve got thriving businesses and we want more but at the very least don’t discriminate against our LGBTQ folks.”

Moreno is not alone in standing up to the fast food restaurant, whose president Dan Cathy came under scrutiny after he told the Baptist Press he was “guilty as charged” when it came to supporting “the biblical definition of the family unit.”

This entire thing shows Agenda 21 mentality:  Left-wing authoritarianism.  Let’s ban what we do not like!  That is exactly what we activists have been saying for years: Agenda 21 will hurt liberty and sovereignty in our nation. Remind me again who the wingnuts are:  The pols who want to ban what they do not like or the activists who stand for liberty and sovereignty?

If I had my way, it would be a civil rights violation for a politician to try to ban a private business or industry for a political reason.
