Texas governor signs 'Save Chick-fil-A' bill

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) has signed into law a bill meant to protect private entities from punishment over actions they take due to their religious beliefs.

The bill, which was signed into law Monday, according to local news affiliate KVUE, came in response to efforts by the San Antonio City Council to block a Chick-fil-A location from opening in the San Antonio airport. Consequently, the bill has been dubbed the "Save-Chick-fil-A" bill, according to local news outlet KVUE.

Abbott himself signed the bill shortly after posting on social media a picture of him eating Chick-fil-A.

Critics of the popular fast food chain argued that the owner's support for anti-gay groups and opposition to gay marriage should prohibit the chain from setting up a store in the airport.

2. How is this even remotely constitutional?

State backs specific religion and forces all citizens to comply with their doctrines. Really, government tips the scales and everyone not in the preferred club is a 2nd class citizen?

WTF about my deeply held beliefs in Freedom of Speech?

3. Why don't people boycott this chain of fast food?

Wouldn't that hurt them too?

11. Easy way to solve this problem

“San Antonio Board of Airport Supervisors v. Abbott.”

Sue him personally for loss of revenue and passenger inconvenience caused by being forced to allow a vendor who’s closed one day per week to occupy precious space in the airport’s restaurant row.
