Religious Freedom and Free Speech are of the most important founding principles of this nation and are protected under the First Amendment. But as we all know, the entire first amendment is toxic to the left and in this case deemed hateful and dangerous to the sexual deviants of the State of Texas.
But last week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in a bold move to protect religious liberty from gay bigots, publicly signed into law Senate Bill 1978, nicknamed the "Save Chick-fil-A" bill, that prohibits all government entities in Texas from taking "adverse actions" against any company or individual because of religious beliefs.
The bill came about after the San Antonio City Council, under pressure from gay mafia types, decided last March against letting the Chicken franchise open a location in the city's airport. San Antonio City Council member Roberto Treviño said that granting a spot to the restaurant would send the wrong message to travelers arriving in San Antonio:
"The inclusion of Chick-fil-A as a national brand tenant is something that I cannot support [...] The heart of the LGBTQ community is in District 1, and the community has come together to voice its disapproval of this proposal because it includes a company with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior."By anti-LGBTQ behavior he's referring to are donations to dangerous hate-filled religious institutions like the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
Well tough nuggets Treviño. You can gay all over Austin, but you don't own Texas yet!
Abbott used his signing ceremony to promote the brand, because that pisses off the queers. Surrounded by staffers and legislators holding Chick-fil-A drinks, and with a sandwich box on his desk, Abbott proclaimed Texas safe for hatin' on them gays:
"Today I signed the @ChickfilA law in Texas. And, had a great lunch. No business should be discriminated against simply because its owners gave to a church or to the Salvation Army or to any other religious organization.:Local Catholic Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller said in a statement:
“Many people admire the company because they do close on Sundays, saying corporately they take that stance in order to provide their employees a day to rest with their families and worship if they choose,”
“… Let the marketplace decide, and consumers will select which businesses to support – or not support – with their dollars, as they always do.”Comments from the left over the weekend were predictably as childish & ignorant as always when they lose. Here's just a sample...
* Abbott probably doesn't realize how trivial he's being in his attempt to molest the LGBTQ community.
*Not only is Abbott a homophobe, he's also just plain rude. After the signing he wouldn't even stand up to shake hands with the other bigots.
* I've heard rumors he won't stand for the national anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance, either. Pass it on.
* So you took the time and energy and expense to pass a law that says, "Neener neener, you do TOO have to let a greasy, disgusting fried chicken restaurant that hates gay people be in your airports!!!" and you are proud of that and don't realize how fucking stupid that makes you look?
* Thankfully there's nothing in the federal constitution that anyone could reasonably interpret as saying that Christians have special privilege in the US, or the religious right would be jumping all over that.
There's also nothing in the federal constitution that anyone could reasonably interpret as saying you get special rights, protections and privileges for defining yourself by who or what you have sex with either. But here we are....
