DAILYKENN.com -- Banning Chick-fil-A due to its perceived cultural perspectives is not only bigoted, it's also illegal. That is the opinion of a writer at Fox News.
The restaurant chain was banned from opening a store at an airport in San Antonio, Texas. Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York banned Chick-fil-A as well.
Behind the bigotry are, apparently, homosexual extremists who discriminate against individuals, groups, governments, and businesses who hold the traditional Christian view that homosexuality is a sin.
Christophobic hate groups created a conundrum by labeling the fast food chain "homophobic." The hate attack was apparently valued at countless millions of dollars in free advertising for Chick-fil-A as long lines formed at many of the stores. The jamming technique backfired. A new strategy is to ban the outlets. That strategy will likely backfire as well.

In response, First Liberty Institute has asked United States Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao, to investigate the Texas city’s council for religious discrimination. The religious liberty law firm asked Secretary Chao to determine whether city officials failed to comply with the assurances of nondiscrimination required as a federal grant recipient. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has also called for an investigation.
The hostile message sent by San Antonio is clear: any business that does not agree with a local government’s – or any government’s, for that matter – preferred opinions is not welcome to do business in that city. The problem is, of course, that the council’s action is blatantly illegal. Indeed, San Antonio’s unconstitutional and discriminatory position should alarm everyone, no matter their religious beliefs.
Councilman Roberto Treviño, who made the motion to exclude Chick-fil-A, said of the vote, “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, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport."
