NEW YORK - New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg says he strongly disagrees with the mayors of Boston, Chicago and San Francisco over Chick-fil-A's position on gay marriage.
The fast food restaurant's opposition to gay marriage has touched off a national furor. Gay rights groups have called for a boycott and the three mayors have said Chick-fil-A was not welcome in their cities.
The billionaire businessman-turned-politician called the three "good mayors" but disagrees with them.
Bloomberg supports same-sex marriage, but says the restaurant flap is none of "the government's business."
New York City currently has one Chick-fil-A restaurant. Bloomberg indicated the company would have to jump through the standard bureaucratic hoops if it wanted to open another.
He said it would be "inappropriate" to consider political or religious beliefs when making such decisions.
