Buffalo, San Antonio ban Chick-Fil-A from airports over Christian views on LGBTQ agenda

Share on GAB

It seems that in two cities, at least, Chick-Fil-A has been banned from local airports over what has been characterized as the company’s “anti-LGBTQ rhetoric,” according to several reports.

Last week, The Blaze reported that the San Antonio City Council rejected a bid for the restaurant to open at its airport on Thursday and a proposed restaurant at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport was rejected after Democrat Assemblyman Sean Ryan pitched a fit over news the company would be opening a store there.

According to The Blaze:

According to KTSA-FM, the latest Food, Beverage, and Retail Prime Concession Agreement — a seven-year contract — is set to generate more than $2 million for the Texas city. Though other restaurants and retail spaces were approved, Chick-fil-A, which was proposed, was struck down.

Councilman Robert Treviño told the station that the council made the decision based on inclusivity.

“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” he said. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

“Everyone has a place here,” he added, “and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport.”

Everyone, that is, except for those who hold traditional Christian views on the LGBTQ issue.

Fox reported:

“I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision,” the Democratic lawmaker wrote online. “I don’t believe the leadership of the NFTA intends to help spread hate and discrimination, but allowing a corporation like Chick-fil-A to do business at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will help to fund continued divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. New York is a welcoming state that celebrates diversity.”

“The views of Chick-fil-A do not represent our state or the Western New York community, and businesses that support discrimination have no place operating in taxpayer-funded public facilities,” he concluded.

Chick-Fil-A, however, says the bans are basically based on lies and misrepresentations.

“Recent coverage about Chick-fil-A continues to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand. We do not have a political or social agenda or discriminate against any group. More than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs represent the Chick-fil-A brand,” a company spokesperson told WKBW. “We embrace all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.”

But it isn’t quite over.  Fox News further tells us that the Texas attorney general has opened an investigation to determine if the city of San Antonio “violated Chick-fil-A’s religious liberty” in its controversial decision.
