Texas governor signs 'Save Chick-fil-A' bill [View all]

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.
