Radical imam OK but not Chick-fil-A


Given his stance on Chick-fil-A, would Mayor Tom Menino grant permits to a group that has counted among its leaders a man who has repeatedly called homosexuality a “crime that must be punished” by death?

Actually, he has done that  . . . and more! Menino effectively gave away city land valued at $1.8 million to the organization, and he gave a speech at its ribbon-cutting ceremony.



“[A homosexual should be given] the same punishment as any sexual pervert  . . . Some say we should throw them from a high place, like God did with the people of Sodom. Some say we should burn them.”

According to the Anti-Defamation League, “In 2003 Qaradawi stated on IslamOnline that the punishment of homosexuality is the death penalty.”


But, no Chic-fil-A will darken Boston's door! Talk about a double standard. It's not OK for a private citizen that owns a private company to say what's on his mind (even if it is backward and moronic), but when the same thing is said by a person that says homosexuality should be met with death, and the mayor is OK with it?

I guess money talks. Oh, wait, it can't be money, because Chic-fil-A wanted to bring money to Boston. Not now, though!

The Chick-fil-a thing he did because he knew it was in the public eye and would gain him more voters. This was probably not as loudly announced (all the facts) but a money maker none the less so it received his blessing. That's the only difference. Well, that and the fact that one was just a plain white Christian and the other was "Protected" for not being a plain white Christian. He cares when it gains him votes....like most politicians.

My guess would be that he is a typical politician motivated by exposure and money. The Chikfila thing was politically motivated and the land deal was monetarily motivated. Like I said though, just a guess, I don't actually know the guy so I can't say.

Remember, liberals call Islam the religion of peace and can't believe anything else about because conservatives constantly say things like "they hate us for our freedoms".

Mmmmmmm, the title of this thread and the article are both misleading. The mayor was not supporting this Qaradawi guy. He was supporting the Boston's Islamic society in building a mosque. This whole thing reeks of someone trying to portray Muslims in a negative light and then saying look he hates Christians but loves Muslims.

This is just ridiculous sensationalism.

If the Chick-Fil-A restaurants debuted a sandwich called the "Fagbeater", then I could see the point.

However, corporate heads are allowed to have public opinions. Is it a dumb opinion? IMO, yes... but he's still entitled to it.

Depends on whether or not you are speaking on behalf of the company or it is being received by the public as being on behalf of the company.

While everyone has the right to their own opinions, if you had a private defence contractor stating "all towel heads should die" or something along those lines, the company probably isn't the one you want contracted by your nation in Middle Eastern affairs.

o.0

I realize this is just a fast food place but still. Keeping your mouth shut on personal feelings is the best case scenario. As you don't have to create such stupid controversies. But maybe that was the point...

“The ISB does not dispute the fact that they have repeatedly used al-Qaradawi as a tool to raise funds for the Boston mosque, printing a brochure that highlighted al-Qaradawi’s enthusiastic support of the mosque and playing a videotaped message of support from him at a 2002 gathering.”

Also in attendance at the gathering, listening to al-Qaradawi’s message: Mayor Tom Menino.


Have a nice fail.

Remembers, Christians think their religion is peaceful even while watching their fellow Christians bomb abortion clinics or beat the hell out of homosexuals!

Or is that somehow not the same?

The fact that the Islamic Society of Boston used Qaradawi to raise money means absolutely nothing. Qaradawi is not in charge of the ISB nor does he represent it, he is just a supporter. So whatever he says is not a reflection of the ISB or the Mosque they had built. But even if Qaradawi was the leader of the ISB when the mayor helped them secure land for the Mosque you would have to prove he had knowledge of what Qaradawi said in order to compare this to Chick Fil A. Soo....nope you fail. Lol
