Texas Governor Signs Save Chick-Fil-A Bill

The city of San Antonio Texas created a stir when it banned Chick-Fil-A from the local airport because the company had donated to causes that held a traditional view of marriage, between one man and one woman.  The organizations are the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Salvation Army.

Governor Greg Abbott is having none of it.

Surrounded by Chick-Fil-A cups, sandwich bags, and a little cow with a sign that read “Eat Mor Chikin,” the governor signed into law a bill that makes it illegal for a government actor to discriminate against religious groups or those associated with them.

At the signing, Abbott said:

“Discrimination is not tolerated in Texas.  No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners gave to a church or to the Salvation Army or to any other religious organization. No business should lose a government contract because of their religious beliefs.”

It’s not clear if the San Antonio city council will reverse its decision, but if they stand by it, they are breaking state law and could be held accountable.

No matter what the outcome, this is fabulous publicity for Chick-Fil-A, which has remained mum about the situation and let it play out.

    “Remember the Alamo” Texas Forever! If you don’t Love Texas You are not invited to Leave it’s more of a ‘Or Else’ request. My Creator gave the Founders of America and TEXAS the RIGHT to Protect our Border ( See U.S. Constitution Article IV, Section 4 ) and the 2nd A.ENDORSES our RIGHT to Defend our Constitution. Any Questions?

    I am an atheist and don’t particularly care for greasy bits of chicken on a bun with a pickle chip, but I do defend the rights of citizens, both private and corporate, to exercise their constitutionally guaranteed rights under the first amendment.
