Story by 89 WLS reporter Bill Cameron
A Chick-fil-A is coming to downtown Chicago and the mayor is not objecting to it.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel took some heat last year when he said Chick-fil-A doesn't represent Chicago's values because the boss believes a marriage is between a man and a woman.
But when WLS reporter Bill Cameron asked what he thinks of a Chick-fil-A going in at State and Lake in the shadow of the iconic Chicago theater marquee, he said this, "I'll buy ya a meal if ya want."
But then he added this, "I still believe, as I've always been clear, we were one of the first states to go civil union and I'm gonna fight to see us through to marriage equality because I believe that's who we are in reflection. The good news is we're also having a national discussion as the President said the other day which is also clear about who we are as a country when someone wants a partner that they have the right to get married."
But the mayor is not going to try to block this Chick-fil-A in the heart of downtown.
