Philadelphia Councilman condemns Chick-Fil-A

Philadelphia Councilman Jim Kenney has joined others in the Chick-Fil-A call-out. Jim wrote a letter to Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy about his company's stance on gays:

"As an American you are legally entitled to your opinion, regardless of how insensitive and intolerant it may be, but as a fellow American and an elected member of Philadelphia City Council; I am entitled to express my opinion as well," the incensed letter reads. "So please – take a hike and take your intolerance with you. There is no place for this type of hate in our great City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.”

Jim is also planning to introduce a resolution condemning Chick-Fil-A's foolishness.
