This surprising city banned Chick-fil-A and Ted Cruz wasn’t happy

116

Chick-fil-A is a popular target of the left for their support of traditional marriage and Christian values.

Leftists have declared an outright war against the fast food chain.

And you won’t believe what this city council decided to do this Chick-fil-A in Texas.

Ever since Chick-fil-A supported efforts to oppose same-sex marriage in 2011, the Left has launched efforts to boycott or sabotage the restaurant.

But the boycotts backfired into a “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day,” and the chicken sandwich chain has only grown more popular.

Despite their failure, the Left hasn’t given up on their war against Chick-fil-A.

Now, the San Antonio City Council just voted to ban the restaurant from the city’s airport.

ABC News reports:

The San Antonio City Council narrowly voted to prevent Chick-fil-a from opening a restaurant at the city’s airport on Thursday due to the company’s alleged bias against LGBT rights.

The council voted, 6-4, for excluding Chick-fil-a from the overall restaurant and concession space operated by Atlanta-based airport concessionaire Paradies Lagardère. Chick-fil-a has been accused of anti-LGBT behavior for years. CEO Dan Cathy first drew condemnation from LGBT groups in 2012 when he said he supported “the biblical definition of the family unit” — marriage only between a man and woman.

The agreement with Paradies Lagardère was for 10,000 square feet in food and concession space, including not only the Chick-fil-a, but also a Smoke Shack, San Antonio Spurs retail store and coffee shop and bar. The Chick-fil-a would have replaced Raising Cane’s, also a chicken restaurant chain.

LGBT activists pressured the City Council to vote against a Chick-fil-A claiming they are a bigoted and homophobic restaurant chain.

All this over a tasty chicken sandwich.

But supporters rushed to Chick-fil-A’s defense.

Even Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted his disapproval for the City Council’s move.

This recent move against Chick-fil-A serves as a reminder to Christians that the Left is still coordinating efforts to publicly punish those who hold these values.

Do you agree with the San Antonio City Council banning Chick-fil-A?

  1. I will stay out of San Antonio. They have chosen to support perversion, and rejected the Bible. They should have their charter revoked.

    • Amen! I keep hoping there will be some well-known organization that will come out and fight for the rights of Christians and Christian businesses. The LGBTQ’s have gone too far. The rest of us have been ‘too nice’. They have brought this on themselves by ‘getting in our faces’.

      • The people should decide what businesses they want in their city and not elected officials that have their own agenda and to hell with the people who put them there. It seems that you cannot have a belief in America (or Great food) unless the Democratic party and News media agree with that belief. If they don’t then you are wrong and they are right. Does anyone see a similarity of what has gone on in countries that have only one party and news media telling you what to believe in. We use to discuss our differences, solve the problems and move on to making our country better. Now, we discuss problems but only one side is right and nothing gets done. I guess Lucifer has decided to see how far he can go before all Christianity, Logic and Understanding is dissolved and the democratic party is left in charge of our thoughts, actions and souls.

    • I hope the people from San Antonio stay out of the RGV sick bastards we don’t want you here you can’t even handle your ass city counsel

    • I was thinking of going to San Antonio next year as we tour the 3 Presidential libraries in Texas but that will not happen. My money spends just as well elsewhere. And we will be eating at Chick-fil-A.

    • I doubt the citizens of San Antonio approve of the actions of the city council either. You vote for them, and then they do entirely opposite of what they promise. They need to take note of those who passed that asinine motion, and vote them out! When anyone allows political correctness to overcome good sense, they do not need to serve in any capacity. That goes for all Democrats. STUPID!

      • It is costing mayor Nirenberg votes. He’s a loon. Now the FAA is investigating the city to see if they broke any laws.

    • The city council is just demonstrating that the majority on the council is bigoted and closed minded, with little or no regard for the science of biology.

    • WHY do people Liston to a few?? There is a lot of people that would not let that bother them I have one in the family and it does not brother me and he is not a hot head like some people is they have taken this away out of condom sense the left has turned this country in to a hate foe any thing that they do not like

    • When they boycotted in Houston I went to Chik and bought over $100 worth of chicken sandwiches that I never intended to eat just to show my support. I went to a park where homeless people gathered and passed them out to them. I encourage other people to do the same and watch Chik stock soar over the next few weeks.

    • This is discriminating of a persons right to own and operate a business in the great state of Texas. The left says they are for equal rights? What a load of crap. Chick fill A should file a lawsuit based on discrimination against them and all Christians that love they;re food. It is the left that is Bias not the right. This is UNAMERICAN !!!

  2. Waldo; if I was anywhere near Texas I would be happy to join you
    on the steps!
    I hope many more people come along with you with their own
    bag…………………and vote the six City Council jerks OUT as soon
    as possible. Recall ’em if you can!

  3. Chick-fil-A has NOTHIING to worry about….San Antonio probably did them a favor….there are other places that would love to have the company come set up operation. As much as I enjoy going to and thru San Antonio I have seen in the past 35 years the city go more left and more left in its thinking and manner and is showing their cards in this nature and making more difficult to stay in the city more than a day. Its sad because it a beautiful place. San Antonio airport is NO loss…

    • They are now a sactuary city…but I invite and strongly encourage Chik-Fil-A to open one up the road from them in Seguin, Texas where we still have freedom of thought AND religion and where other chicken places are average at best. They would make a fortune.

      • They are only keeping them out of the airport (which they control) They cannot keep them out of town or the area!! We have Chick-fil-A’ near our home that ALWAYS has a line at the window. Texas love them. San Antonio City government is full of worthless liberals voted in by illegals and liberal who do not represent those of us in the areal. We know they are a bunch of idiots, but with all the illegals, liberal transplants and dead people voting we have an issue.

  4. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF BOYCOTTING A CITY???..THIS IS THE MOST OUTLANDISH EXAMPLE OF THE MOST HORRIBLE EXAMPLE OF A CITY GOVERNMENT BOWING DOWN TO A CULT THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN…..HOW CAN THESE SO CALLED ELECTED OFFICIALS LIVE WITH THEMSELVES….GOD HELP THEM SEE WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND GOD HELP US STAND STRONG….

    • They are Democrats, what do you expect. It is time we Texans declared our independence… again, and kicked out these crazies and formed a real government of the people (excluding illegals).

  5. San Antonio can kiss my grits i will not be visiting these godless hucksters political whores. They have shown they have no love for Christianity and worship the Secular Progressie Humanist Church of Globalism.

  6. I agree with all the above. Chic fil A has always been my favorite fast food. The food is good, and their morals are better!!!!!

  7. We are leaving Ca. because of all the crap here. We are moving to Texas to be closer to our son. San Antonio was one of the cities we are considering because I am an air force veteran. Not now. You people are as screwed up as the idiots here. Going towards Houston.

    • Well the 355 jobs we are bringing to Texas will not go near San Antonio. Not even close. Really a shame use to be such a nice place.

      • Seguin will welcome you and your jobs. The city has been drawing much manufacturing with Kubota, Caterpillar, Mini-Grip, John Deere and Continental Automotive Systems dominating the field…very competitive wage rates and the highest manufacturing number of jobs per capita in the state and double that of the nation’s average. Will be glad to introduce you to the mayor.

    • Big mistake…Houston is run by a second gay mayor in a row…they tried to pass an ordinance allowing men in little girls bathrooms under the guise of equality. San Antonio may be bad but Houston and Austin are becoming the new San Franciscos

      • Almost every large city is liberal / progressive. They are the only places the free-loaders can live and get all of the most important freebies: cell-phones, school lunches, all of the things that make life worth living without having to make a living. And many of them have become “Sanctuary” cities protecting criminals, etc.

    • We need more conservatives here with brains. The illegals, liberals and dead people voting in the city are the issue. They counsel can keep businesses out of the airport, but not all over the area. Houston is over run with liberals who tell the citizens what to do,but couldnt find their way out of a brown paper bag. Over run by refugees from Katrina who vote democrat and those from CA hell bent on making our great state as worthless as they did the one they left.

  8. Chick Fil A serves all with no discrimination. Their founders have a right to their beliefs about marriage. It’s time to shut down the liberal thought police who seek to have their morality standard as the only one acceptable. The city council should be thrown out of office for discriminating against Christians.

    • You should see the very long lines at our Chik-Fil-A here in Castle Rock, CO! It’s never ending and I’m so glad for that company. We’re still fairly conservative in this county, but only time will tell how long that lasts given the incredible influx of “foreigners” to this county and, in particular, this city/town.

  9. Sounds like the California liberals have taken over the San Antonio City Government. Time to build a wall on the West side of the Colorado River, between Arizona and California. We need to stop the liberal plague.
    Rest assured I will continue to eat Chik-fil-A.

    • Make that between CA, WA, and OR and the rest of the country. We’re getting WAAAAAY too many of these creeps here in Colorado.

      • Most Oregonian’s are not the creeps, it’s the damn Californians that moved up to Oregon. Believe me most of us can’t stand them!

  10. The city counsel should be interested in (a) Is the restaurant clean; (b) is it generating revenue for the city; and (c) are the workers American citizens!! Chick-fil-A management is following their beliefs just as did the Wedding Cake Baker who followed their Christian values and won in the Supreme court!! San Antonio is now facing a Huge law suit as are the Leftists who were persecuting the High School student without looking at the legal ramifications of their bigotry!!

    • They voted down the Republican convention coming to San Antonio years ago, which would have generated millions of $$$$ to this city. But blame it on the dam Democratic s that voted it down back then, we lost a lot of money for our city. Such a shame.

    • It probably will. But the airport gets federal subsidies.. and that was first amendment action.. THANKS BARRY!!!!

  11. So now liberals are getting their panties in a wad against businesses who don’t agree with their BS. It’s time the governor stomps on these village idiots.

  12. They don’t know what they’re missing. Probably the best fast food you could buy. I would have it at least 4 nights a week for dinner if my wife let me. Bowing to the perverted freaks shows how spineless those council members are.

  13. I would call their decision prejudice against chick-fil-A and the Bible. Maybe San Antonio city council should be banned.

      • And KTSA Radio, with Trey Ware, who is hopping mad about the City Council’s stand on Chic-Fill-A at the airport. All the listeners who have called in are furious, too.

  14. They forgot to mention that Chick-fil-A makes a wonderful chicken sandwich along with all of the fixins’. Perhaps the morons in the San Antonio city council don’t know any better…LOL

  15. Please look at who sits on the San Antonio City Council…they are girly men raised by wacko mothers who added to the “community” of girly men who grew up without a man in the house. It’s Psychology #101…just read and learn…watch and listen…seek and you shall find the truth. Frank J. Stangel, J.D.

  16. Unfortunately you have a stupid Democratic Mayor that voted against bringing in Chick-fil-A in, but your right they are becoming more and more poplar. Love their food.

  17. The moron of a mayor here is from Austin (liberal capitol of Texas) and he’s just as big an idiot as the rest of them up there. I live outside San Antonio, so I don’t claim them. They are slowly but surely being being turned in to Austin. Have mercy. 🙁

  18. All these leftists are really getting out of line and becoming a royal pain in the ass. If that’s how they feel, leave them alone. They’re not bothering you. God forbid we disagree with you leftists. You’ll have your panties in a bunch. There are more important thing to be concerned about. If you don’t like something don’t be bothered with it. Boycot. You’re like kids throwing a temper tantrum. Boo hoo. A marriage is suppose to be between a man & woman. Wake up to reality.

    • I believe Gays are hypocrites. They detest the Bible, Christians, church BUT, run to marry using a BIBLE! Probably marry in gay churches. Might be their way of thumbing their nose at us. But hey…they will have to answer for their blasphemy. We will all be judged, for our own sins.

  19. This makes me furious! My guess is that the constituents of those Councilmen do not agree with their vote!!!! Now is the time to get rid of them!

  20. The Dumbacrats are trying their best to destroy America. We are a Christian Nation! We must fight the Libtards till the end.

  21. Defense of marriage act should be enforced nationally. They should sue the city council members for bigotry.
    This kind of discrimination by LGBTQ is going to lead to some serious push back. They have no one to blame but themselves

  22. This liberal thing has gone way too far . This whole country is going to end up in another civil war between the liberals and conservatives . The things that are being fought over are just totally ridiculous . If they don’t get their way I suppose they will take their toys and go home . No one impeached Obama or had him removed from office and that sure was a big cover up on his birth certificate . He is also the first president who has stayed in the Washington area and continued to cause problems in the background . All other past presidents have left the Washington area and kept their noses out of the existing president’s handling of the government . I would sure like to know how the 3 nut cases that are new to congress got there as well as how they were even admitted into the United States with the backgrounds that they have .

  23. Well I was thinking of visiting San Antonio when I go to Austin to see the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue. I have family in San Antonio, but I guess I can see them elsewhere in Texas. I know Austin is a liberal city, but SRV means more to me than my hatred of the dykes, fags,bi-sexuals, turds,and fudge packers. Better known as the lgbtq idiots. Why do their rights supersede CHRISTIAN rights? Let’s all let “queer assholio” city know that we will All avoid spending Any money or time in their homo liberal city!

  24. Did you ever hear of the separation between church and state? If you open a business it is to serve all people. You don’t have the right to discriminate because of what your holy book says. Or to tell your workers what they can and can not do because of your religious beliefs. That is just wrong. Keep your beliefs in your church where they belong. Then maybe you wouldn’t have people boycott your business.

    • Separation of Church and State is nowhere to be found in the U.S. Constitution. The phrase separation of Church and State came from a letter that the Danbury Baptists wrote to Thomas Jefferson,expressing their concern about the government interfering with their rights to practice the faith as they saw fit. So it was recommended that a wall of separation be established between the Church and the State so that the latter(State) wouldn’t dully influence the former,and the former(the Church) would guide the affairs of the state.

  25. Evil successes when good men do nothing. We all have to react and challenge the evil doers. We must protect our Christian nation.

  26. I have seen or heard any official Chick-Fil-A corporate statement against any multi-alphabet group, organization or person. The owner/founder has made his beliefs abundantly clear. I remember when a one day nationwide boycott was promoted against Chick-Fil-A and the lines inside and out we’re phenomenally long. It was a great statement of support and the best response. Chick-Fil-A is a welcoming business and their chicken is great.

  27. Apparently the lack of backbone among the member of this city council will come back to bite them. Do they think the group they have bowed to will give enough support to make up for their revenue ? Has this group done anything CONSTRUCTIVE or just worked to destruct as many of God’s teachings as possible ?? SHAME ON THESE COWARDS …..

  28. This goes to show how sick these democrats are becoming. San Antonio use to be a great city and I have family there but it seems to have gone to he’ll.

  29. Sometimes I don’t know what to say. I do know that our constitution gives us freedom of speech and freedom of religion, however the LBGT movement doesn’t recognize this document. Which isn’t surprising since they don’t even believe in God, if they did there are consequences for their actions. It really baffles the hell out of me of the way they think. That goes for all liberals. God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve and that’s good enough for me. I think they ought to bring this to the attention of the population of San Antonio TX and allow them to vote on it. And the city council ought to grow a set of kahuna’s and stand up to them. They suck and so do the members of the LBGT movement.

  30. Is the city council just a bunch of liberals, or the fact that they are trying to subvert the constitution of the United States and remove the ability of (we the people) to chose where we eat, equate them with a low life communist? Just asking ?

  31. Chick-fil-A is in the “right” here, as they are on most things. They crazy bastards who banned them from the airport are total retards. They shoud all be voted out of the City Council.

  32. how can a city ban a restaurant on the fact that they do not believe what the restaurant owners believe. how can this be legal….? and in san antonio no less….home of the alamo. it’s disgusting…..do you think the counsel of idiots in san antonio would ban a rest. owned by muslims…?

  33. Just maybe if the Democratic’s would eat some of the Chick-Fil-A Food they would change their mind, I eat there 2-3 times a week. They also should know that GOD has the last word!!

  34. Seems to me that the city council needs to be disbanded because of extreme cowardice. Caving in to a sh**bird organization means they don’t deserve to hold an office. The people of S A need to overrule their decision and demand the restaurant be allowed at the airport or throw the council members out of office. No if, ands or buts.

  35. God bless Chick-fil-A! they should go to next town over & open store there & San Antonio will be the loser! I love to eat at Chick-fil-A! good food, clean stores, helpful & loving employees! it’s over 2 hour drive to closest store but we go at least once a month! other Christian businesses have to start to show their CHRISTIAN beliefs & to treat others as they want to be treated – with love & respect!

  36. What is wrong with the San Antonio City Council??? !!! Do they not represent the city and not just the LGBTJQ group. The LGBTJQ is a small group overall and if they want to do their “thing” let them do it but that should not include forcing the rest of us to suffer because of their ideology!! Whatever made them think they could cause a business to go out of business because of their morals?!?! They are fortunate that they can exist in our society, but they need to know that they MUST extend that same courtesy to everyone else in our society. I say this knowing well how they live as I have two family friends who are GAY and I am in their company many times. I wish this group would adopt the old time sayings: “live and let live” and “don’t let the tail wag the dog” and we will do the same for them.

  37. I agree. But there is another reason that the city council could have had in mind. Or should have.

    It is that there is a lot of weekend travel, And with one of the restaurants closed for half the weekend, travelers could have a problem finding something to eat in whatever time they might have between flights.

  38. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these deep state treasonous NAZI commie liberal demoncrats and RINOs post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  39. I was just at Chick-fil-a and I have never seen such a busy well organized group of workers in my life. They were bombarded at 11 am and no one waited more than a few minutes for their food and it was delicious!They are showing the rest of fast food restaurants how to run a great business. Their business is soring to new heights with every LGBT boycott. And the customer service is exquisite, even Walt Disney World can’t compare with their service and this is a sincere statement. WOW, I was really astounded at what I witnessed at this store in Beavercreek, Ohio, on a Monday morning. This is what people who are given the sabbath off give back to their company. Two lines of cars were wrapped around the building with every car space around the building filled and the tables inside were filled with patrons of young and old alike and every worker had a smile on their face and a kind word for every customer in the building, and they were going around to tables and filling everyone drinks so they didn’t have to do it themselves and getting whatever any individual needed. It was an amazing site that I haven’t seen in years. I applaud this company for taking a stand on same sex marriages and I assume they don’t hire lesbians, homosexuals or transgender people. Our country was built on the Bible folks and hurray for Christians who stand by their faith not this slutty society we have in our present day soddom and gohmorra.

    • You are right about everything except when you said they don’t hire lesbians, homosexuals, or transgender people. Everyone gets a fair shake there if they are willing to work.

  40. The LGBQTs will not be happy until we condone and adopt their lifestyle. They are the most bigoted and unreasonable people on earth. Their way or the highway.

  41. never tried Chick-fil-A until the slob leftists said they were going to boycott. Now I am a huge fan. The spicy chix sand is incredible.

    • The FAA is investigating them to see if they broke the law, is they did they stand to lose many millions in federal funds.

  42. I have been to San Antonio several times when I was in the Army (serving there) and as a civilian visiting friends. The San Antonio City Council must be proud of themselves turning their back on GOD. I’m not sure but I’m willing to bet that there weren’t Atheists at THE ALAMO.

  43. How can Chick-fil-A be homophobic when you have a piece of young chicken sandwiched between two pieces of bread?

  44. This is getting them in more hot water than they bargained for because the FAA is now investigating them to see if they broke any laws. If they don’t d they will lose federal funding for their airport. They deserve it.
