A New York City councilman says Chick-fil-A is not welcome in his city until the chicken chain welcomes all New Yorkers.

“We don't need bigots coming to New York City,” openly gay Councilman Daniel Dromm told The Huffington Post about the eatery's plans to expand into the Big Apple. “They are not welcome here unless they can embrace all of New York's diverse community, including the LGBT community.”

Two years after he created a firestorm of controversy, CEO Dan Cathy recently said he'll leave the issue of gay marriage to politicians, which in turn unleashed harsh words from social conservatives who suggested Cathy had “sold out.”

“We don't need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves,” Dromm added. “They need to wake up and see reality.”

Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), the nation's most vociferous opponent of marriage equality, criticized Dromm's comments.

“These remarks are outrageous and intolerant, and sadly seem to be part of a trend developing in the public debate surrounding this issue,” Brown said in a blog post. “When Dan Cathy's pro-marriage views were first reported in 2012, we saw mayors and city councils saying similar things – it was a disgraceful circus then, and it is now.”

“What Dromm has effectively said here is that anyone who believes in marriage as the union of a man and a woman is unwelcome in New York City. His remarks, coming amidst a climate of such unseemly attacks on pro-marriage people as we saw with the Mozilla controversy last week, simply reinforce a growing manifestation of hostility and intimidation in the public square toward folks with traditional values. Christians and others are now, it seems, going to be considered guilty of 'thought-crimes' and threatened with all manner of reprisals simply for holding their beliefs.”

Brown called on the New York City Council to condemn Dromm's comments.
