The Texas State Senate threw LGBT activists into a tizzy over Chick-fil-A

Radical LGBT activists are waging an all-out war against Chick-fil-A.

But they never saw this coming.

The Texas State Senate took one action that threw LGBT activists into a tizzy over Chick-fil-A.

San Antonio recently stopped a Chick-fil-A location from being opened in their airport after activists lobbied them to do so.

LGBT activists are claiming the restaurant discriminates against the LGBT community and promotes hatred simply because the President has made personal contributions to political causes they don’t agree with.

They’ve used this same lie to shut down Chick-fil-A on campuses across the United States as well.

But the Texas State Senate is fighting back after approving the “Save Chick-fil-A” Bill.

This legislation would prevent anyone from punishing someone due to their charitable or religious beliefs.

Which means the Left’s war against Chick-fil-A would be over in a moment’s notice in Texas.

Dallas News reports:

The Texas Senate has approved a bill that would prohibit the government from penalizing individuals and businesses for their charitable giving to or membership in religious groups.

Senate Bill 1978, which supporters call the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill, was passed by a vote of 19-12 on Thursday afternoon after about four hours of debate over two days. Sen. Eddie Lucio, D-Brownsville, broke with his party to vote in favor, while Sen. Kel Seliger of Amarillo split with fellow Republicans to vote against the bill.

The legislation now heads to the Texas House for further debate, just 10 days before lawmakers are scheduled to go home.

In the waning days of the 2019 session, this so-called “Save Chick-fil-A bill” has quickly become one of the most divisive issues in an otherwise mostly harmonious year. . .

Ever since Chick-fil-A’s President made a personal contribution to an effort opposing same-sex marriage, the Left has made the popular fast food chicken chain one of their primary targets.

They have protested outside of their locations and even attempted to start a boycott, which completely backfired.

Now people are catching on to their tactics and fighting back.

What do you think?

Should city governments be allowed to shut down Chick-fil-A due to their religious beliefs?

  1. Suppose it was found out a national company gave money to ANTIFA or BLM so what if you don’t like it you don’t patronize them.

    • I tend to stay away from Starbucks because of that and they are way overpriced as well. However, it is a liberals point of view that it shall be the law that prohibits me from MY choice to do business with an establishment. I agree with your statement where it is a personal choice.

      • I stay away from Starbucks too. I don’t like their over priced burnt coffee either. I totally agree with you also on this matter.

      • Starbucks is dead to us too. Haven’t gone there in about ten years because they are way overpriced and some of their product quality is exceeded by many others too. Schultzie is not involved with them any longer but he is running for President! He is not as Radical as many of the others but some of his ideas are still not in the interest of this Country! MAGA….2020

      • I have every intention of avoiding STARBUCKS, as every time I have drunk one of their concoctions, I have had to toss it away after one taste.
        I recently ordered a Coffee in a STARBUCKS OUTLET in TYLER, I had not noticed that it was a STARBUCKS outlet, I would have thought that there would be a Cafe where one could purchase an ORDINARY CUP OF COFFEE.
        I did notice that this outlet was curiously empty of CONSUMERS. I shall either bring my own BEVERAGE in future or go thirsty.

    • If the organization that is being supported is a typical anti-American, freedom hating liberal organization that democrats all support then it’s okay to allow them to be in business. If a business has ownership that promotes Christian or American values then it’s not. How did this country get so screwed up? Oh right. The democrats of fifty plus years ago all died off and have been replaced by radical communists produced by our government education system which is totally controlled by leftist liberals. Just because the public funds education for all does not mean the government should control any aspect of it except covering the cost. The rest of education should be in the hands of the parents.

      • A business or an individual has the right to support any organization or cause of its choosing, as long as it is not in violation of our laws, treasonous, or promotes violence. Chick-fil-A is supporting organizations it believes in. The LGBTs have the same rights and the right to not patronize Chick-fil-A, but they do not have the right to force their beliefs on businesses, government or citizenry, and that is their goal. I do not support the LGBTs and that is my right.

      • Point on.I am glad to see that some one else sees this. Democrats have bee against this country and it’s people ever since they killed their president, J.F.Kennedy. Worse yet his brother Ted did nothing to get a independent investigation done to find the REAL truth. Then killed his mistress to cover up the fact she was pregnant with his child. The investigation into that was squashed by him.

      • Same here…I believe the LGBTQ community is a CULT of the DEVIL and all these unsuspecting souls will burn in HELL at which time they will be able to discern the truth plainly stated in the BIBLE but it will be too late to make the right decision.

    • Sadly Satan’s sinful group want to shove their agenda over Christians Rights. Many of the leaders who call themselves a Christian is a good example of a Christian Bigot, who are helping to spread Satan sins. There are many peoples who live their lives with God’s Laws.

        • Yes, there are “churches” that have thrown out anything in the Bible they don’t agree with. They would rather attract more members than preach the truth.

          • I would rather hear the truth being preached instead of having God’s word sugar-coated. I had a lady friend tell me that her church’s Pastor wouldn’t preach on hell because it was too scary. Go figger!! But anywho, you are right; they want more money and less Jesus.

      • Leon: You’re right on about Satan’s clan: They, the democratic party, removed GOD from their core beliefs;thus becoming the godless party. Sooo, YES, they folow satan and want this great country to fail.

  2. Just because lgbt thinks it should be legal I’m under the impression that they should go home and do what they want and leave businesses to do their thing. Why should they get special treatment and not the rest of the community’s?? I’m sorry they are doing this to so many and many don’t know what to do, just get into their face and shout them down. They are looking for acknowledgement of their PROBLEM of being what they are, disgusting,!!!!!!

  3. Yay. Texas…Think of what it would be like if we could shut down anyone just because we didn’t agree with their point of view. That is what this is all about! Too simple isn’t it?//MBWHITTEMORE

  4. Declare LGBT as Domestic Terrorist and make them a illegal organization. They are all mental deficient Freaks.

  5. What we are seeing now is a resurgence of hate that is being perpetrated by the LGBTQ community. Since when does a business that is Christian and does not support same-sex marriage discriminatory? Do they refuse to give homosexuals chicken sandwiches when they come in and order it? Do they tell them that they won’t serve them? None of that is true. What is true is that the LGBTQ community is once again yelling discrimination because of their perverted lifestyles and they want to be treated as normal. If they aren’t being refused service they are being treated fairly. Grow up. Try acting like mature people. If you don’t like their stance on same-sex marriage then take your business elsewhere. We are tired of bowing to your demands. You aren’t special. You don’t deserve special treatment. Move on.

    • I so agree with Gary! You would not find one Chick-fil-A that would ever discriminate against anyone in LGBTQ community in any way! They treat everyone with respect no matter who they are! The sad thing is that isn’t the same with the LGBTQ community everyone has to think like they do!! Freedom of Religion Freedom of thought will not be tolerated, but don’t you dare not let them think the way they want! Grow up is right, try acting like mature people! So someone believes differently than you too bad!! It’s called FREEDOM of thought!! That is why we live in the Greatest country in the world!!

      • And when the LGBTQs protested at one Chic-Fil-A, Chic-Fil-a was kind enough to bring them sandwiches and drinks. So yeah they aren’t discriminating against anyone.

    • Whole-heartedly agree Gary. What the LGBTQ community does behind closed doors, is nobody else’s business. But, this community wants us to legitimize and recognize their affliction.
      There is nothing normal about same sex relations.
      We don’t need to bring GOD into the discussion.
      Mother nature dictates what is “normal” behavior.
      The purpose of all life, is to create, so that the species can survive.
      Two women can not create life by themselves, without outside intervention.
      Two men can not create life by themselves, with, or without outside intervention.
      If this community wants to do its thing behind closed doors, I’m ok with that.
      But, if you push this in my face, I’m going to fight back.
      In my opinion, this is not normal, mentally stable behavior, and I do not believe that our children should be brought up to believe that it is.
      Now, can you love someone of the same sex? Yes.
      Can I personally love someone of the same sex? Yes, but not in a sexual way. As a best friend? Yes.
      The thought of being with another man sickens and disgusts me.
      But, that is my personal opinion, my personal feelings, and my personal belief.
      No amount of demonstrations, town-hall meetings, or government legislation will change the way I feel.
      I do not wish harm to anyone.
      I do not condemn anyone.
      But, do not expect me to support this behavior.

  6. To have the wisdom of a goose.
    The geese do not have an identity problem.
    They know who they are, male or female.

  7. LGBT.
    I’ve decided that the “L” and the “G” can have general rights and attention as long as they are monogamous.
    The “Bi” can obviously not be monogamous…and is socially disruptive in various ways (think about it), so should not have special or extra rights that relate to that specific situation. The “T” are just plain bonkers and shouldn’t have any special or additional rights that relate to that specific condition.
    I.e. — these last 2 groups are “on their own”. We should not lump them in with L & G. Why do we?

    This is not only fair, but it is logical and safer.

  8. Somebody needs to tell the LGBT clowns that this is America! Their approach to dealing with Americans who have every right to either like or dislike cultures, concepts, ideas, preferences, and behaviors, is just plain goofy. Who are these clowns? Somebody ought put them all on a long train and send them somewhere a long ways away … can you spell stupidity?

  9. Send the protesters to home. If they doesn’t have right after right they be quite. When they get one opportunity then they wanted more and more like they merely everything and continue to asking for more. Go Chick-Fil-A we stand with you!

  10. If so, we need to stop any business who promotes, or are owned by lgbtq people applying for licenses also. what’s good for the goose, is good for the gooser!

  11. RESEARCH IT… JOHNS HOPKINS SCIENTIST POSTED A MEDICAL PAPER STATING THAT… TRANSGENDERISM = MENTAL DISORDER

    JUST LIKE ALL THE REST… IF IT IS SOMETHNG THAT COMES FROM YOUR HEAD, THE THEY ARE MENTAL DISORDERS

    SORRY BUT I WOULD POST THAT MEDICAL PAPER FOR ALL TO READ, BUT NO PHOTO BUTTON/ICON…

  12. no body should be allowed to close a business except by not doing any business with them and the government dam well should not block a business

  13. The Gay Community and the LGBT , I have my beliefs and you have yours. QUIT PUSHING YOUR BELEIFS DOWN MY THROAT. Quit forcing las on me that you are okay an I am not. If you want that lifestyle, and if it is legal, just live it and quit forcing me to approve it. What if I tried to force you to accept my life style?

  14. It’s about time that this was done to stop the madness of one group that wants to control everyone. The people that are normal will not accept their lifestyle even though we can’t stop it but it will be stopped soon by our Creator. He made us all with His plan in mind and He is leaving them alone for now but not forever.

  15. It would appear that Chick-fil-A’s enemies hold the position that if one doesn’t agree with and support them, one shouldn’t be allowed to exist. Support us or we’ll destroy you, seems to be their condition for peace. Rather totalitarian and thus un-American I should think.
    Some politicians today tout the campaign slogan of “bringing us together.” Frankly, I have zero interest in being brought together with such rabble as Chick-fil-A and those who patronize must contend.

    • I really don’t know what the LBGTQRS (and what ever letters) are so up in arms about? The owners have their OWN PERSONAL beliefs. The business is totally different……..they are friendly, professional, and welcoming to EVERYBODY. And the food is good! They don’t discriminate against anyone……they don’t refuse service to anyone……and they don’t run anyone out of their stores because they don’t agree with their way of thinking. Too bad that can’t be said about a LOT of libs places.!!!

  16. What’s the difference between LGBT folks discriminating those with Christian beliefs . . . and Christians that discriminate those with LGBT beliefs? Regardless of the genetic makeup of an individual, is not both positions based solely on what one believes of themselves and their position? Is not their beliefs in their hearts and minds? And does not both deserve the right to associate with whom they chose?

    This Bill does not stop any group from boycotting Chic-fil-la . . . it does as follows: “…The Texas Senate… bill….would prohibit the government from penalizing individuals and businesses for their charitable giving to or membership in religious groups…:

    More importantly, the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights is upheld by this Bill!!!

  17. This could shutdown the airport.. They get funds from the FAA.. They can’t stop it even if they tried.. Chich-fil-A can be they and there AIN’T NOTHING THEY CAN DO ABOUT IT!!! SUCK ON THAT LGBT!!!!!!

  18. I am a native Texan and I love Chick-fil-A!! They have amazing chicken!! Also, they are morally in line with most my views. They will serve you with superb service with a smile-no matter what you believe, rich or poor, whether you are the color: gray, pink, or zebra colored!

    I, however, stay away from Starbucks, Target, Kellogg Brands, Nike, CVS and such companies who all have decided to serve up immoral views or support violent or intolerant groups.

    It was hard giving up things I love from companies I used to love. But I just cannot support their political views and intolerance. I refuse to give our hard earned money to companies who spew hate.

    I am with neither party of left or right. I am me, I stand with the constitution and not the perversion of sorts. If people do not like Chick-fil-A then simply do not eat there. It is that easy.

    I personally do not believe that any company should be blasting out their views, they should sell their products-only. Not try to stand out from the crowd with backwards politics and expect everyone to like it. No one on earth fully agrees with anything but there are common grounds to be found. People are purposefully making fights and placing fear so it is to be acted on. Step back. Look at the bigger picture of you can- they are creating problems so they remain relevant. If you do not give them the attention they automatically lose. Easy peasy.

    • I agree with this law being passed. All these lawsuits about “discrimination” are frivolous, clog up the judicial system and need to be thrown out. This country was founded on freedom of religion. If you don’t like the business’s religious or politic views go somewhere else! No one has the right to tell someone they can’t do business the way they choose. If you don’t like their beliefs, politics, etc. then don’t go there! There are plenty of other places to eat and shop.

  19. Has there been a litigated case of discrimination done by Chick-fil-A? No?!? Then there is no reason to not allow Chick-fil-A to start up a shop ANYWHERE THEY CAN!!! In fact, Chick-fil-A should file suit against the LBGT group for discrimination against them!!!

  20. The issue seems to be that some people allow their genitalia to control every aspect of their lives.

    And other People don’t really care as long as they keep their PRIVATE LIFE ….PRIVATE…..!!!

    And then there are those who go through life ignoring the failures of some people and go through life with their own set of values.

    Those whose lives are FULLY CONTROLLED by their genitalia get upset when they are not worshiped by normal people whose lives are RULED BY THEIR SKILLS and ABILITIES outside the bedroom.

    HELL HATH NO FURY like that of an ignored bedwetter.

    • Teens let their genitalia rule their behavior. Theae groups are acting like hormonally hysterical teen girls/boys….screaming, crying, stamping feet and ready to fight anyone not in their HS click…GROW UP ALREADY!

    • “Political tags — such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth — are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.”
      ― Robert A. Heinlein

      Curmudgeon
      A curmudgeon’s reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They’re neither warped nor evil at heart. They don’t hate mankind, just mankind’s absurdities. They’re just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy. They ease the pain by turning hurt into humor. . . They attack maudlinism because it devalues genuine sentiment. . . Nature, having failed to equip them with a serviceable denial mechanism, has endowed them with astute perception and sly wit. Curmudgeons are mockers and debunkers whose bitterness is a symptom rather than a disease. They can’t compromise their standards and can’t manage the suspension of disbelief necessary for feigned cheerfulness. Their awareness is a curse – Jon Winokur

  21. Chic fil-A has as much right to their beliefs and the sinners have to theirs. I really took bravery to pass this bill. We have more than equal rights to stand agains homosexuals because God stand against them. He doesn’t make mistakes.

  22. You know I used to be indifferent towards the LGBT community. Now that they are pulling this on a company. I hate their guts. See it wasn’t Chick Fil A that got me hating them. It’s their own attitude that got the hate rolling. Plus, now these half witt.mouth breathers have me becoming a activist against the LGBT community. Before you go there, not because of what youbate. Because you are ass holes.

  23. God didn’t make them the way they are, the LGBT’S MADE THEMSELVES THE WAY THEY ARE. I’m still going to Chick-fil-a and eat their food, I’m not going to Starbuck for coffee because I hate their over priced, worst coffee on the planet, but that’s my choice, that’s my freedom to do so, SO ALL LGBT’S GROW UP AND MOVE ON!

  24. Those weirdoes should go back inside their closets, There’s no place for them in our civilized world. They can never fit in.

  25. Any House member that doesn’t vote to approve this bill should be removed by conservatives at the next opportunity. This is a clear-cut issue of freedom in Texas. Anyone who doesn’t support freedom in Texas doesn’t deserve to be a representative of Texas citizens.

  26. Part of our problem is political correctness. I have never felt comfortable with LGBT QXYZMTAR or whatever crap THEY choose to call themselves. I prefer God’s choice Sodomites. These leftists are always pulling these stunts. “Planned Parenthood” yea right, anything but. More like planned murderhood. I could go on and on but you get the idea.

  27. This is the 2% wanting to rule the other 98%. People, live and let live. You don’t like the restaurant, don’t eat there but don’t deny the 98%.

  28. Why are there so many people who got nothing to do but complain about what religion is right or wrong. People are getting so picky that i believe the lord needs to raise his hand distroy everything. If not then we need a war within the boundaries of American so that people can appreciate what life realy is and what freedom feels like again. There is only 1 god or 1 super alien and thats it. Look at the original real copy of the last super. Look at the heavens. What do you see. Man. You people need to wake up. I wonder what would you do if we did have a war on our land. What god would you ask for help. Would you be picky. We’ve got it made in America. So stop corrupting American by your stupidity. We have 1 planet. So lets make the best of it. Finally. You can not satisfy everyone. You just deal with it. Stop trying to hitlerize everything to include religion. Everyone has their beliefs. No one is right or has the answer.

  29. They did the same with Mozilla – forcing their CEO to abdicate – the same person who was most responsible for the creation of Firefox – because he supported a pro-family proposition in CA. Discrimination is normal for that lobby.

  30. Thank you Texas, for supporting Americans freedom and at the same time blocking certain groups communistic tendencies, well done!

  31. We do not shop at target, do not buy Nike since they stood by the Tiger Woods scsndal, never darken the doors of Starbucks and definitely not CVS. We do not support companies who make public there politicial position. You will offend the party you are not supporting. Not a smart or wise business decisin.

  32. Here is something that these idiots that hate Chic-fil-A forget. Who was handing out food and drink on a Sunday morning to blood donors and first responders after the shooting in the Orlando gay nightclub? Yep, a local Chic-fil-A. Liberal-progressives are a batch of hypocrites.

  33. Blacks and Whites have Always been Equal in God’s Eyes,depending on which Continent one Grows up.Color is a Weak excuse for those who have Less Power than they would like,to call for Unity on issues.Race was never a question for Character.We as Media Fans have chosen certain Actors as our Heroes.Some Black,some White and some of different color.The bottom line is Race,Color doesn’t matter.Gays and Heteros are Not equal in God’s Eyes.There is an Agreement God made with Man and Woman.They are to Respect each other and bring New Life into Society.Gays have tried to Make us Accept their ways as Right.Wrong!Their ways do not allow for Procreation.All they do is Manifest their desires for Pleasure and their Weakness towards the other Sex.Goodbye LGBTQ.I can’t say it was nice knowing you.I think Gay people have Major Issues to uncover.Maybe instead of being totally against Gays we should Try to understand them as best we can.I believe as Individuals they should all be respected.I just can Not respect their Ways,Thoughts or Actions.

  34. The leftists insist on normalizing abnormal behavior and redefining words in order to demonize conservative positions. The latest is the mental machinations of Nancy Pelosi who completely distorted the meaning of the word “merit” to insult and denigrate rational conservative immigration changes. This Chick Fil A thing is another example and, of course, all the outrage is amplified in the MSM.

  35. Some of you right wing nuts probably have relatives or friends that are gay, whether you know it or not. Would you abandon them, if you would you are in the devil’s plan.

  36. I don’t like the LGBTQRSTXYZ or whatever they call it now, so if they can stop a business, then I should be able to stop them, right??

  37. most Christian churches will accept LGBT couples into their church. They may not agree with their choice but they are still God’s children.

  38. Our Constitution allows each and every American to have his or her own religious beliefs. When did the GAY community get the right to take away our right to make a living, and believe as we want. Cities, and Universities do not have the right to close businesses for religious action their actions are Unamerican their activities have broken the law.

  39. Congratulations on Chick-Fil-A and the Texas State Senate for taking this courageous stand. We do not need this kind of filth and other moral trash shoved down our throats. It is sins like sodomy that bought fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah.

    All other Chick-Fil-As throughout this country should take a courageous stand like the one in Texas and not let those people like the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender folks not to mention the state governments. This stuff was never guaranteed by the US Constitution and our founding fathers. They would never stand for garbage like this.

  40. I just flew thru the Atlanta airport and was hungry. I went looking and found a chik fil a but it also had the longest lines in the food area. I got in line and was proud to stand against the lgbt boycott, which doesn’t seem to be working.

  41. If the president of a company can be stopped from opening a store for giving a charitable gift to a group that does not follow LGBT beliefs, then let’s all keep LGBT businesses from growing their business too, because you can rest assured they give charitable gifts and support to LGBT groups! LGBT really can’t have their cake and eat it too, or cannot dictate charitable giving for Non- LGBT charities if they don’t want the same rules applied to them! LBGT folks are not any better or different than others, except for their sexual preferences!
