Judge gives boost to those suing San Antonio over Chick-fil-A ban
Many Texans were unhappy with Chick-fil-A getting kicked out from the San Antonio airport. The controversy led the Texas Legislature to pass the 'Save Chick-fil-A' bill, and now there is a victory for those who wanted to sure the city over the decision last year.
“We applaud Judge Canales for allowing this case to continue, and are grateful for the Texas Legislature that protected religious freedom and First Amendment speech, including speech through donations,” said Mary Elizabeth Castle, Policy Advisor for Texas Values.
Back in March, San Antonio city council members faced major backlash after stipulating in a contract with a concessionaire hired to bring in new food vendors to the airport that they would specifically replace Chick-fil-A with a different restaurant.
It amazes me that San Antonio's city council is so calloused towards a food vendor that does so much community good. So hateful towards Christians. https://t.co/mQ5GTNkJvh— Terry Hughes (@HughesTerry) January 10, 2020
Here is some background information on the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill signed into law by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott back in June of 2019.
The REAL promoters of HATE are the INTOLERANT-of-traditional-marriage San Antonio City Council members...the SAME folks who put SA residents at risk with Sanctuary City status.— GretchenInOK (@GretchenInOK) June 12, 2019
