    SAN ANTONIO, Texas — The city council of San Antonio, Texas has voted to exclude the popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant at the San Antonio International Airport, stating that “we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”

    According to reports, on Thursday, the city council voted 6-4 to approve a “Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement” with Paradies Lagardère to utilize 10,000 square feet in restaurant and concession space at the airport, with the stipulation that Chick-fil-A be removed as a vendor.

    Local television station KTSA reports that the seven-year agreement includes eateries such as Smoke Shack and Boss Bagels and Coffee, and initially would have come with a Chick-fil-A, but officials did not want the fast food restaurant as part of the package as they view the chicken chain as having a history of opposing homosexuality.

    “With this decision, the city council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion. 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,” Councilman Robert Trevino said in a statement posted to the City of San Antonio website.

    “Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport,” he said. “I look forward to the announcement of a suitable replacement by Paradies.”
