Chick-fil-A continues to face persecution for their public profession of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
This time, the restaurant has been banned by the San Antonio City Council from opening a restaurant location in the local airport.
And you won’t believe the actual excuse the left is using to justify this decision.
Apparently, Chick-fil-A’s great crime is giving to charity…
Chick-fil-A apparently isn’t allowed to give charity to causes they believe in, they’re only allowed to give charity to causes officially approved of by the Atheist left.
Not on their officially approved list of politically correct charities, are apparently the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Salvation Army, and the Paul Anderson Youth Home.
Now Chick-fil-A must be publicly shamed for the sin of generosity to the wrong groups.
Simply because each of these charities upholds Biblical truths, it is unacceptable for anyone to support their good work.
Christian charities must be boycotted out of existence according to the radical Atheist left.
And any company that gives charity to Christian charities must also be shut down.
Councilmember Treviño spearheaded the effort that succeeded with the support of five of his fellow council members.
Four council members, however, voted against Treviño’s proposal, including Councilman Greg Brockhouse who wrote an open letter to Chick-fil-A apologizing for the council’s anti-Christian words and conduct.
“The recent actions of our City Council do not reflect the overwhelming belief in our City that you are a valued business and community partner,” Brockhouse wrote.
But that wasn’t even the beginning of the backlash San Antonio was about to receive.
Republican Congressman Chip Roy, who represents parts of San Antonio in the U.S. House, wrote his own letter to the City Council in which he defends Chick-fil-A:
“To be clear:
– Operating a company according to Christian values is not bigoted, nor is it discriminatory;
– Donating to charities that support Christian athletes is not bigoted, nor is it discriminatory;
– Supporting the Salvation Army and other charitable groups that adhere to Christian values is not bigoted, nor is it discriminatory;
– Having views of marriage that are based in biblical doctrine while promising to make every customer feel “welcome” who walks in the door is not bigoted, nor is it discriminatory.”
In addition, according to the San Antonio Express News, “Sen. Ted Cruz and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch were among those to criticize the San Antonio City Council’s decision on Twitter.”
The citizens of beautiful San Antonio deserve more delicious sandwiches, and fewer rabid attacks against companies because of their charitable giving to the community. Come on. —> https://t.co/Nvh0GN30EO

Because it is.
IT’S A CHICKEN SANDWICH https://t.co/F1Au0NxijX

In their own statement Chick-fil-A had this to say:
“It’s disappointing. We would have liked to have had a dialogue with the city council before this decision was made. We agree with Councilmember Treviño that everyone is and should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A. We plan to reach out to the city council to gain a better understanding of this decision.”
This sadly isn’t the first case of attacks on Chick-fil-A for their Christian faith.
As detailed in previous reporting done by Christian Life Daily, this boycott attempt has been going on for years.
But thankfully, it’s been the most unsuccessful boycott in history. <link CLD article>
