SAN ANTONIO, TX.

Popular chicken-sandwich franchise Chick-fil-Awas in plans to join a number of new restaurants in Terminal A at the San Antonio International Airport. But ThinkProgress, a news website from an advocacy organization, reported last week that “the Chick-fil-A Foundation donated $1.8 million to groups that discriminate against the LGBTQ community in 2017, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.” The next day, reports USA Today, the San Antonio City Council voted Chick-fil-A out of the new terminal plans, and cited the chain’s apparent anti-LGBTQ stance as the reason. This amendment to the original plan was approved by a 6-4 vote.

In a statement, Councilman Roberto Treviño said after the vote: “With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion. 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.”

Chick-fil-A was quick to respond in a statement to USA Today: “We wish we had the opportunity to clarify misperceptions about our company prior to the vote. We agree with the councilmember that everyone should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A… In fact, we have welcomed everyone in San Antonio into our 32 local stores for more than 40 years.”

In 2012, Chick-fil-A founder Dan Cathy gave an interview that included the quote: “We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.” The company has previously donated to socially conservative groups like the Marriage And Family Foundation and the Family Research Council.

This is not the first time that Chick-fil-A’s reported anti-gay stance has cost the chain business. Earlier this month, The Root reportedthat a dean at Rider University in New Jersey resigned because of the school’s refusal to allow Chick-fil-A on campus. Students voted for the chain on a survey but the administration chose not to add it, saying “our intention was to foster a sense of respect and belonging of all members of the campus community, including those who identify as LGBTQ+.” In November, Pittsburgh city officials opposed Chick-fil-A sponsorship of a kids’ marathon because of Cathy’s controversial views on homosexuality and the company’s donations to groups that oppose same-sex marriage.

Faggots being faggots over based cow-posters' views on faggots.

Pittsburgh wouldn't let them sponsor a marathon for kids because of their views on homosexuality. Daily reminder that Chick-fil-A also funds PBS.

I tried to find some more objectively bad things they might have supported (like conversion therapy) but at most, they supported a group that did conversion on willing adults before publicly apologizing in 2012 and going defunct in 2013.

Chick-fil-A has also softened their stance and made some apologies but it doesn't matter. Tolerance doesn't matter if you don't outright support gay interests. Also, don't even get me started on "consumer activism" over gay rights of all things when half the shit we wear is made in sweatshops.

Fuck off, Central Texas. You're being Central Texas again.

To be completely fair, were I operating the airport I'd want that space to go to a restaurant that wasn't closed on Sunday, ie a busy travel day
You know, if this was actually a business decision that's being masked as activism (like a lot of shit like this is), in this case they probably would've been better off just saying it's a business decision. Such a weird move to make.

The only way I could chuckle any harder at this shit is if the restaurant in its stead would be a kebab joint.

Bi faggot here, I don't give a fuck what they believe. They make god tier food and that's all that matters
About the only thing that would get me to stop eating at a restaurant is them being dishonest about the food they serve. Looking at you Chiptole. Serve me deep fried dead animal impending heart attacks but be honest about it. Don't pretend it's healthy because that cow was grass fed and the fry oil is non-gmo. Subway used to pull that shit with spokespedo :jared-fogle:. Look at where that got them. I see through your bullshit. Don't you dare lie about what you are serving me.

That and health code violations. Dealbreaker.
