“Discrimination is not tolerated in Texas,” the governor said. Discrimination against LGBTQ people, though, is perfectly legal.
The governor of Texas celebrated the passage of an anti-LGBTQ bill by eating Chick-fil-A.
Last month, Governor Greg Abbott (R) signed what was dubbed the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law. The bill banned government entities, including local governments, from taking “adverse actions” against businesses because of their “religious beliefs” or “moral convictions.”
The bill was inspired by the city of San Antonio refusing to give Chick-fil-A a lucrative contract to operate at their local airport after the fast food chain donated millions of dollars to anti-LGBTQ organizations over the past decade.
