Perhaps not all those living in Chicago share the "Chicago values" espoused by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. It turns out that some local religious leaders are fighting back against the mayor and voicing not only their displeasure with his comments but their support for REAL values.
"Do not disrespect us...We, too, are Chicago," the Rev. Charles Lyons of the Armitage Baptist Church thundered from the pulpit Sunday.
Cardinal Francis George also criticized Emanuel's stance, asking in the Catholic Chicago Blog if everyone who did not agree with Emanuel faced a similar fate.
"Must those whose personal values do not conform to those of the government of the day move from the city," George wondered. "Is the City Council going to set up a 'Council Committee on Un-Chicagoan Activities' and call those of us who are suspect to appear before it?"
