Chick-Fil-A Scorecard: Roseanne, City Of Chicago, “No!”; Santorum, “Yes!”

Since Chick-fil-A’s CEO Dan Cathy announced his company was “guilty as charged” of standing against same-sex marriage, all kinds of people have been coming out to support and lambast the chain.

Chicago Alderman Joe Moreno announced he’d work to block Chick-fil-A from opening a second location in his district: “If you are discriminating against a segment of the community, I don’t want you in the 1st Ward,” Moreno told the Chicago Tribune. “Because of this man’s ignorance, I will now be denying Chick-fil-A’s permit to open a restaurant.”

Moreno has the support of former Obama chief of staff and current Windy City Mayor Rahm Emanuel (above), who stated that “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values. They disrespect our fellow neighbors and residents. This would be a bad investment, since it would be empty.”

The politicos join the Jim Henson Company, Boston mayor Thomas Menino and actor Ed Helms, who have all made a stink about Chick-Fil-A’s bigotry.
On the other side of the griddle, failed presidential candidate Rick Santorum tweeted today that he’d taken his kids to clog their arteries at the restaurant, and encouraged his followers to join Mike Huckabee’s Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

Wow, Bob Dole got flack for endorsing Viagra but these two losers are going all out for a fast-food chain simply because it hates the same thing they do?

And forgive us for trudging out an old meme, but do you really want Santorum all over your chicken sandwich?

Wrapping up our roundup of high-profile folks weighing in on the great chicken debate is Roseanne Barr. The caustic comedian let forth a volley of expletive-laden tweets about the company, including “New Shit-Fil_A motto: “We torture Chickens for Christ” and one that reminded us that folks who eat “antibiotic filled tortured chickens 4Christ” will probably wind up with cancer.

In the immortal words of Jerri Blank, “Cancer? That’s hi-lar-ious!”
