On Friday, Menino sent a letter to Chick-fil-A, saying there’s no place for discrimination, or their company, in Boston.
Speaking on “The Ken Coleman Show,” Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy recently expressed his opinion on gay marriage:
“We’re 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. And I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude that thinks we have the audacity to redefine what marriage is all about.
“We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that … We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that.”
