Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is launching an investigation into whether or not or no longer an enterprise that peddles fried bird partly to funding an anti-LGBT schedule has a constitutional right to installation store in a San Antonio airport due to the fact that’s where we’re proper now within the annals of history.
Paxton also fancies himself a wordsmith, writing in a Monday letter to San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg, “The Constitution’s protection of religious liberty is in some way even higher than Chick-fil-A’s bird. Unfortunately, I have severe issues that both are beneath assault on the San Antonio airport.”
He is relating to the metropolis’s 6-four vote closing week to keep the fast-meals chain out of the airport because of its “legacy of anti-LGBTQ conduct.” Chick-fil-A’s corporate declaration explains that they promote fried fowl nuggets and waffle-cut potatoes “to glorify God by using being a devoted steward of all this is entrusted to us and to have a high-quality have an impact on all who come into touch with Chick-fil-A,” which makes their discrimination a matter of religion. They’re additionally closed on Sundays because, as each person knows, the Bible prohibits the dipping of wingéd beasts into honey mustard on the Sabbath.
In an information release on Thursday, Paxton argued that since the airport gets federal investment, prohibiting Chick-fil-A from making money to be used for discrimination is likewise discriminatory. My head hurts.
