Completely false. As a business, Chick-fil-a has never discriminated against anyone.

Equality and inclusion insofar that your thoughts are equal to theirs apparently. These people are clueless.


The company itself has said, or done, exactly NOTHING that indicates bias, prejudice against anyone! The company OWNERS hold their PERSONAL opinion about this LGBTQ situation.

This is proof positive that democraPs are too stupid to hold any position of authority! Or, even participate in any type of logic, sane, discussions on any matter.

What is happening in Texas is pretty much the same thing happening here in N. Virginia.

Assholes ruined Maryland, got sick of it, moved across the river to the 3 northern Virginia counties and promptly started re-creating what they ran from in MD.

Do your homework before moving. IIRC, Houston has a lesbian mayor and the city council is 80 percent lefty.

I find this whole situation hilarious. The losses will be sustained by the airport, not Chik-Fil-A.

The definition of discrimination is to exclude someone or something. Like excluding a business.

A case could be made for religious discrimination, but why? Take your delicious chicken and fries elsewhere.

The LGBTQ population is less than 2 percent of the general population.

The only problem with Dennis Prager's EXCELLENT Prager University EDUCATIONAL videos is that they "preach to the choir". There are VERY FEW, if any, Leftists that will watch these vids and change their abhorrent, sick, twisted, ideologies and behaviors.

Don't move to Houston "proper"; as inside the city limits...move to a surrounding area like Pearland, Montgomery, Kingwood, Tomball/Spring, Friendswood, Magnolia, Sugarland (buy a helicopter for your morning commute), etc. Harris county might be a "blue" county, but that's not the politics of the ENTIRE county...just the actual Libtard City of Houston.

Consider College Station or Waco. There's also Temple. (This is off-topic, but I am trying to be helpful.)

Texas is getting more infested with GDCs, but I don’t think I’d go that far. Colorado has way more fucked-up gun laws, a gay governor (NTTATWWT), legalized use of de debbil’s lettuce, and is (I believe), a sanctuary state for illegal aliens less fortunate migrants.

Last month I spent a week in Houston, Pearland, and League city. I would love to move to Pearland. It's very nice and quiet but my commute to work would be hell everyday.

The only option would be Houston as my work will be there. Any other area, I would probably be sitting in traffic just like commiefornia.

Glad to see this:

“Texas' attorney general opened an investigation Thursday into San Antonio's decision to exclude Chick-fil-A from opening airport concession facilities due to the fast-food chain owners' record on LGBT issues.

Attorney General Ken Paxton announced the investigation in a letter to San Antonio officials and stated his office will examine whether Texas' second-largest city violated state law with the rejection.

Paxton called the move 'the opposite of tolerance' and a 'discriminatory decision' based on the religious beliefs of the chain's owners.

'The Constitution's protection of religious liberty is somehow even better than Chick-fil-A's chicken,' Paxton said in the letter. 'Unfortunately, I have serious concerns that both are under assault at the San Antonio airport.' …”

Not even close.

Colorado has a Democrat Governor and Lt. Governor, Sec of State, Treasurer, and A.G. Also Democrat majorities in the state senate, house, and U.S. House of Reps. Also one U.S. Senator.

Texas has a Republican Governor, Lt. Governor, A.G., Sec. of State and Comptroller. Also Republican majorities in the state senate, house, U.S. House of Reps, and both Senate seats. Also a shitload of judges.

I think that is what called a velvet covered sledge hammer.


It is diplomatic language designed to leave the doors open, but to be a sledgehammer, there would have to be some actual power behind it. I don't think there is any.

I agree that the decision is virtue signaling by lefties. "Look how inclusive we are." And I also agree that I have never seen any discrimination from Chik-fil-A, the founder's personal views notwithstanding.

Open up a ChiKFilA outside the airport entrance, have multiple lanes, fast service and a sign that says Last Chance for ChikFilA before you get stuck with Airport prices and food!

Probably cut seriously into airport concession sales...

Chick-fil-A no longer in plans for Buffalo airport due to LGBTQ issues

Updated Mar 29, 4:21 PM; Posted Mar 29, 4:17 PM

Ngoc Huynh | nhuynh@nyup.com

Chick-fil-A will not be coming to the Buffalo Niagara International Airport, according to Assemblyman Sean Ryan (D, NY-149).

Delaware North, the company that runs the food operations at the Western NY airport, had plans to renovate the food options by adding a Chick-fil-A. The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority approved tentative plans Thursday for the process to move forward.

Ryan voiced concerns Thursday asking the NFTA to reverse its decision. He stated that an anti-LGBTQ company should not be allowed to operate in a taxpayer-funded public facility. Ryan posted the following disappointment on Twitter.

(Sigmund is unable to copy and paste the twitter post off the link)

By Friday afternoon, Ryan said the airport notified him that the fast food chain will not be included as part of the airport project.

“A publicly financed facility like the Buffalo Niagara International Airport is not the appropriate venue for a Chick-fil-A restaurant,” Ryan’s statement read. “I applaud the decision that has been made to remove Chick-fil-A from the plans for this project. We hope in the future the NFTA will make every effort to contract with businesses that adhere to anti-discrimination policies, and we’re confident another vendor who better represents the values of the Western New York community will replace Chick-fil-A as a part of this project in the very near future.”

Recently, the San Antonio International Airport also disinvited Chick-fil-A, in part, for its religious view on anti-same-sex marriage values. The Texas attorney general has launched an investigation into whether the city of San Antonio has violated Chick-fil-A’s religious liberty.

Last fall, a standalone Chick-fil-A restaurant opened up in Cheektowaga with the excitement of many patrons. The chain has been opening locations in Upstate NY in Greece and Cicero with plans for a Henrietta location.

Chick-fil-A is not an "anti-LGBTQ" company. They are an equal-opportunity employer and have not discriminated against anyone as customers. Mr. Ryan is misinformed. Both Buffalo and San Antonio are mesmerised by the LGBTQ and Leftist propaganda.

^^This. Nothing but straight up lies and propaganda.

They're not mesmerized. They're pandering because they think it will buy them something with their party. Though Chick-Fil-A likely won't do it, they should take some of these public agencies to court for discrimination. This BS is textbook discrimination, and people pushing it should be burnt to the ground.
