    Banning Chick-fil-A is not only bigoted -- itís illegal

    Banning Chick-fil-A is not only bigoted -- itís illegal

    Here we go again! The anti-free speech police on parade!


    Last week, the San Antonio City Council voted to ban the popular restaurant chain Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio International Airport. Six members of the council voted to approve a new concession space contract on the express condition Chick-fil-A be excluded.

    Chick-fil-Aís sin? A history of religious activity that the city council found offensive. A Chick-fil-A has now been yanked from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York as well.

    In response, First Liberty Institute has asked United States Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao, to investigate the Texas cityís council for religious discrimination. The religious liberty law firm asked Secretary Chao to determine whether city officials failed to comply with the assurances of nondiscrimination required as a federal grant recipient. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has also called for an investigation.

    The hostile message sent by San Antonio is clear: any business that does not agree with a local governmentís Ė or any governmentís, for that matter Ė preferred opinions is not welcome to do business in that city. The problem is, of course, that the councilís action is blatantly illegal. Indeed, San Antonioís unconstitutional and discriminatory position should alarm everyone, no matter their religious beliefs.

    Councilman Roberto TreviŮo, who made the motion to exclude Chick-fil-A, said of the vote, ďSan Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior . . . Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport.".....

    Except Christians.

    The Mayor has revised "the reason" for the ban - it's no longer about the LBGTQXYZ issue - it's because Chick-Fil-A isn't open on Sundays, and that would cheat travelers out of a meal.

    Here's some interesting background on Chick-Fil-A, including franchise information and statements of faith....

    Right, but they're already on record saying that it's because of the company recognizing certain religious values and beliefs.

    That's before the Attorney General threatened to slap their little hands for religious discrimination.

    Well, yes, but I mean the public meeting where they voted is going to have minutes, isn't it? And one councilman made a statement that was published by local media. They can't just take it back.

    The city council forbade Chick-fil-A from
    opening at the airport because they aren't
    supportive of the LGBTQQICAPF2K+ movement

    The good thing is that since the gay marriage dust up they have added about twice as many stores. So "normal" "rational" people have no problem with Chick-fil-A .

    What's up with Texas? Why is the macho gun-totting cowboy state letting these liberals turn it into another California?

    Get your act together Texas.
