    Chick-fil-A Banned from Airport for Its ‘Legacy of Anti-LGBTQ Behavior’

    Last week, the San Antonio City Council agreed 6-4 to exclude Chick-fil-A from the airport’s food and retail contract. 

    “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior,” said District 1 City Councilman Robert Treviño according to the Washington Times

    Chick-fil-A had not heard about the motion until after the contract’s approval. “We agree with [councilmember Treviño] that everyone is and should feel welcome at Chick-fil-A,” the company said in a statement to Fox News. “We have a fundamental code of conduct at Chick-fil-A: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. We would still welcome the opportunity to have a thoughtful dialogue with the city council and plan to reach out to them.” 

    Ted Cruz fired back at the council member with a Tweet that called the motion “ridiculous”, according to the Houston Chronicle. “San Antonio City Council voted to ban @ChickfilA from the airport bc the company gave to…the Fellowship of Christian Athletes & the Salvation Army?!?” the tweet continued.
