Texas Governor Greg Abbot Signs Chick-fil-A bill

June 21, 2019

Texas Governor Greg Abbot has signed a bill that is aimed at preventing cities from discriminating against Chick-fil-A chain because of claims over the owner’s faith.

Such bill would not be necessary if there was no hostility and intolerance toward Chick-fil-a and other business alike from the left.

The bill was sponsored after San Antonio city council targeted the Chick-fil-A chain, specifically excluding it from a proposed airport plan, because the planning council didn't agree with Chick-fil-a owners faith.

That action also prompted numerous investigations by the state and federal governments, into whether the council violated federal requirements by discriminating based on religion in its contracting.

The Daily Mail reported council members boasted that by targeting and excluding a company based on religious beliefs, they were “taking a stand over the fast-food company’s values.”

The new state law specifically prohibits cities from taking discriminating against businesses based on their contributions to religious beliefs.

Abbott had described the San Antonio action as having “the stench of religious discrimination.”

Chick-fil-A, as we know, has been a target of LGBT hate since its owner advocated for traditional marriage. As far as the activists are concerned you are not allowed to operate a business and have family value beliefs.

Ken Paxton, an Attorney General of Texas, who  himself has been a target of the intolerant left said

“The city of San Antonio claims that it can hide documents because it anticipates being sued, But we’ve simply opened an investigation using the Public Information Act. If a mere investigation is enough to excuse the city of San Antonio from its obligation to be transparent with the people of Texas, then the Public Information Act is a dead letter. The city’s extreme position only highlights its fear about allowing any sunshine on the religious bigotry that animated its decision.”

It is thoroughly disgusting for San Antonio city council to want to hide their votes from the public view much less discriminate a legitimate business. The city council members who voted 'yea' need to have their names displayed and ejected from their positions. Their actions are an embarrassment to the whole state of Texas.

Chick-fil-A said in a statement it is in the business of serving food and hospitality to all.
