The anti-Chick-fil-A crusade has reached San Antonio.

The City Council "voted to ban the restaurant from the San Antonio airport. Why? According to Councilman Robert Trevino, because of Chick-fil-A’s 'legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.'” - Breakpoint

It's going to be fun watching the courts slap down the city council for blatant anti-religious discrimination.  

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

....They've been pushed away from Winona State University as well--2 of my daughters go there.  Probably not worth suing there, since 6000 students probably can't support one well, but for San Antonio, I sure hope they bring the hurt for anti-religious bigotry.

Yeah it will be interesting to see how this sticks.  I don't think it will.  Essentially the city council is banning an establishment because of what a private individual who owns the restaurant wants to donate his money to.  On top of that the institutions he is donating to are not anti-LGBTQ, but just pro-family.  Lastly, the restaurant doesn't discriminate against anyone in either service or hiring practices.  I would argue that a LGBTQ individual would get immensely better service with a smile than they would at a McDonald's who would barely acknowledge the individual.  It always strikes me that the left wants to portray that they are accommodating to people of all stripes, but the second they don't align with their view they want to discriminate.  If you have a strong belief that you don't want your money going to one of these charities, that is 100% your right and you don't need to eat there, there are lots of options at the food court.  This is always crazy.

In my home state of (leftist) Minnesota, in addition to several free-standing Chick-fil-A's that have opened in recent years, there are at least two at public universities:

1. University of Minnesota:

2. Mankato State University:

Plus there are two at the Minneapolis/St Paul International Airport:

How the left-wing in Minnesota hasn't tried to railroad these (in particular) out of business escapes me.....
