Chick-fil-A’s been the target of boycotts and harassment by radical LGBT activists.
Local governments have even tried to prevent them from opening new locations.
But the tasty fast food chicken chain scored a major victory against those radical LGBT activists with this simple act.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the “Save Chick-fil-A” Bill into law this week.
The law protects businesses from being discriminated against by the government just because of their “membership in, affiliation with, or contribution, donation, or other support provided to a religious organization.”
Christian Headlines reports:
The legislation came about in the lone star state after San Antonio’s City Council voted in March to exclude Chick-fil-A from the airport, in part due to the company’s donations to the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Supporters of the bill . . . see the exclusion of Chick-fil-A on the basis of religious belief, as clear and blatant religious discrimination.
“The city’s decision to ban Chick-fil-A was blatant, illegal religious discrimination. We want to know just how deep the religious animosity runs within San Antonio’s city government,” First Liberty’s general counsel Hiram Sasser said.
State Rep. Matt Schaefer (R-TX) voiced that the bill was necessary to protect people of faith. “Should any city council be able to refuse me as a vendor in their city simply because I make donations to my church, which holds a biblical view of marriage?” he questioned.
The Texas Governor didn’t hold a public signing for the bill or release a statement on its signing.
But, shortly after the Bill’s passage, Governor Abbott sent out this tweet letting folks know he supported the Bill.
So. What are the odds I’ll sign the Chick-fil-A bill?
I’ll let you know after dinner.
