‘Come on’: Ted Cruz blasts airport for bigoted Chick-fil-A ban as customers rally

On Thursday the San Antonio City Council banned Chick-fil-A from the San Antonio International Airport over its allegedly “anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

This “anti-LGBTQ behavior” includes donating $1.8 million in 2017 to three charitable Christian ministries that abide by the Christian beliefs outlined in the Bible. That Christian organizations would abide by Christian beliefs is unfathomable to the left for reasons that remain unclear.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz responded to the banning by pointing out that the residents of San Antonio deserve better than to be denied “delicious sandwiches” because of their legislators’ rabid bigotry:

And yes, the decision to ban Chick-fil-A was indeed bigoted, especially given the fast food chain’s record. So was the decision by New York magazine to run a piece Friday accusing the chain of being a “hate-monger” that promotes discrimination against the LGBT community.

“Here are 17 chicken sandwiches you can eat without fear that you’re also, however indirectly, supporting our nation’s hate-mongers,” the left-wing outlet tweeted Friday.

Attached to New York magazine’s tweet was an article with the headline, “The Great New York Chicken Sandwiches That Aren’t From Chick-fil-A.”

Within the article the left-wing outlet offered readers a chance to enjoy “a squishy bun with juicy chicken … and without the lingering aftertaste of discrimination.”

“Here are 17 options that you can eat without fear that you’re also, however indirectly, supporting our nation’s hate-mongers,” the disingenuous piece reads.

Chick-fil-A does not engage in hate-mongering or discrimination. The popular fast food chain boasts gay employees and serves gay customers.  As a decidedly Christian chain that closes for business every Sunday, however, the restaurant is supportive of Christians causes.

The left has been targeting Chick-fil-A with false allegations of hate and bigotry ever since CEO Dan T. Cathy revealed in 2012 that he supports traditional marriage. There’s nothing hateful about what Cathy said or about the donations the chain makes to Christian organizations.

Many do believe however that there’s something hateful, bigoted and repugnant about making false allegations and discriminating against an organization because of its Christian beliefs.

In fact, many people say that the real “hate-mongers” and bigots are the anti-Christian leftists at New York magazine, not to mention the leftist legislators in San Antonio:

These bigots aren’t alone. Ever since the presidency of Barack Obama, who frequently bashed Christianity while extolling the alleged greatness of Islam, both anti-Christian and anti-Semitic bigotry has been on the rise among Democrats and their media allies.

Earlier this week the media attacked Secretary of State Mike Pence for sitting with the Christian Broadcasting Network for an interview and answering with “that’s possible” when asked whether there’s an equivalence between Trump and Queen Esther, a Biblical figure who once saved the Jews in Persia by foiling a plan by the Persian king’s chief adviser to have them executed.

Around January some members of the media derided proud Christian Vice President Mike Pence as a “Jesus whisper” and argued that his wife, Karen, should be denied Secret Service protection because she’d accepted a job at a Christian school.

As for Chick-fil-A, it’s been banned from airports, accused by the media of “creepy infiltration,” threatened with city-wide boycotts and inundated with endless hate and bigotry.

Remember when this happened? *points to video below*

Seven years ago left-wing activist Adam Smith harassed a Chick-fil-A employee over the company’s Christian beliefs. His horrible behavior wound up costing him his livelihood.


Meanwhile, as others, including the media, have inundated Chick-fil-A with undeserved hate and false accusations, the chain has remained diligent in its Christian mission to make the world a better place by giving back to veterans, to police officers, to hurricane victims and more.

It’s unclear who, if anyone, the folks at New York magazine or the legislators in San Antonio have given back to. Come to think of it, the answer is quite clear. They’ve given back to Chick-fil-A.  “How!?” you ask. By inspiring that many more people to grab some chicken for lunch and/or dinner.


Nice try, though, you anti-Christian bigots!
