Recently the Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel expressed through his comments that he has, a certain dislike for Christianity’s moral values. In response to one of Chick-fil-A’s CEO who openly thinks that same-sex marriage is wrong. Expressing personal views of supporting traditional marriage of one man, and one women. This sparked a controversial response by the mayor Rahm Emanuel and his counter part mayor Tom Menio of Boston.
“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values,” Emanuel said recently.
Rahm Emanuel, In case you haven’t notices Our founders intended. Freedom of religion, not from religion!
Eradicating bigotry is a personal mission or so it seems to be for mayor Emanuel. It known as a liberal left idea, in finding some minority group to present as needed for gaining support, for some political gains. Then presented as groups of people needing protection, provided for by the government. Claiming because of some hatred, or hate towards these kinds of minority’s, or unfairness towards them as a whole. As their reasoning behind their support. Yet at the same time implementing these same tactics of hate towards the population that has a difference of opinion as a whole. Doesn’t he realize that in that process he also exchanges one kind of bigotry for another?
“You can please some of the people some of the time. But you cannot please all of the people all of the time.” unknown
When you consider the first amendment which allows for the protection of offensive speech ( Offensive defined by whom? A governmental definition, deciding for the population? The first amendment is for someone who would choose to speaks out against the government.) For non offensive speech needs no protections, by its nature It is non-offensive. For Emanuel to step into the fray, expressing by his personal bigoted opinions as some values he has. Supporting changing popular values to fit his own. Is a misuse of governmental powers. But then Emanuel has also believed.. ” Never let a crises go to waste.”
says Glenn Greenwald at Salon. “You can’t cheer when political officials punish the expression of views you dislike and then expect to be taken seriously when you wrap yourself in the banner of free speech to protest state punishment of views you like and share.”That is a direct assault on Christianity,” Limbaugh said on his radio show. “That is a direct assault on Christians, with economic punishment thrown in, including threats from government officials that are in direct violation of the Constitution.”
Wilson Huhn, a professor and associate director of the Constitutional Law Center
at The University of Akron School of Law, told Fox News that denying the
restaurant the right to locate in Chicago “absolutely” violates the First
Amendment. “It would be an open and shut case,” Huhn told Fox News. “You can’t
do that. They cannot be denied a zoning permit based upon the viewpoint of their

As of yet I personally haven’t heard anyone from the Chicago area speak out with the support of Rahm Emanuel’s over his inflated opinions. The fact of the matter is no one is speaking out against other religious faiths that also have a stance against same-sex mirages. Like the Muslim religious faith, just to name one of the many. Mayor Tom Menio of Boston seem to support just one of these kinds of spiritual guides, from the Islāmic society of Boston. But also joins in with blasting Christian values on marriage.
When it comes to so-called Christian religious leaders of Chicago like Jeremiah Wright; who said ” HIV was created by the government to kill black people. ” or a religion like the muslim faith who looks differently towards gay life style and the people who choose to live it. Why is it your responsibility in deciding which believe to attack? Then do so without any equivalence to those opinions, attitudes, policy’s, or danger to the community as a whole?

Imam Yusef Al-Qaradawi Has said and called homosexuality a ” crime that must be punished by death?” This kind of public statement is acceptable? While supporting marriage of one man and one women is not? For some reason the Obama administration and Rahm Emanuel ( who was a part of the Obama administration for a time) and countless others of like-minded people in government. Never seem to find themself on a collision course disagreeing with Islāmic faiths, or their extreme believes of extreme believers. But Christianity seem to be fair game to attack with vitriol.
With murder rates skyrocketing in Chicago ( 275 homicides this year, up to the time of writing this blog post.) up some 38% compared to New York. Where murders are down 17% from last year. Doesn’t seem like any change is a-foot. Doing little to nothing in presenting some change, or some values, or principles or policy’s to uphold true change in the city? Gang violence along with Emanuel seems out of control. Emanuel seem only interested in trying to school these thugs using strong words of telling them ” leave our kids alone!” But then he also uses the strong language towards Christians with. ” These are not Chicago values. ” Strong words like these seems to do little to change anything other than make people mad. Showing just how hate filled mayor Emanuel is, and how willing he is to trample the constitution of the United States of America!
When you throw into the mix that Chicago is a gun free zone. This kind of leadership is laughable. To no greater degree then Emanuel’s forgetfulness that this is a nation for the most part with some kind of Christian values and believes. We have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion that Emanuel and his allies would impose on this country. His kind of thinking shows a lack of value for protecting the people of Chicago from true violent crime and hatreds of one gang towards another. Are the law-abiding people going to be left to be caught in the cross fire? And are the Christians / religious believers of any religion, to quietly just go away because of your opposition to selective religion?
I suppose when you hate one group over another. Telling the other group to stop hating only shows that your out of touch with reality. Besides how is it possible to find hate with a disagreement of personal believes, moral values, political values or policy’s, that are different to your own. People who have plastic wrap thin skin, and are easily offended. Need to know there is no need for any government involvements to relieve them from such offence. Being offended needs no protections. Just turn and walk away. Disagreement doesn’t constitute hatred. Other wise we all are out-of-control haters!
