New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has already voiced his discontent with other mayors around the country who have spoken out against Chick-fil-A, but he’s not quite done yet.Bloomberg ripped Chick-fil-A critics again on his weekly WOR radio show.
Here’s what he had to say, according to the New York Post:
“It isn’t the right thing to do and it isn’t what America stands for. And those people who don’t like [Chick-fil-A] don’t understand their rights were protected by people who took a difficult position in the past and stood by it. They stood up so everybody else would be free.”
“I don’t agree with [Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy]. I don’t agree with the position of the Catholic Church. That doesn’t mean I don’t have an enormous amount of respect for the two Cardinals we have here and the clergy and the people who are Catholic.”
“What’s for sure is that government cannot in the United States, in America, under the Constitution, be run where you have a litmus test for the personal views of somebody when they want something in the commercial world.”
