Texas Is About to Step in It With ‘Save Chick-fil-A’ Law
Pandora's Box is about to be opened.
Here's the deal, kids. The city of San Antonio decided against going into business with Chick-fil-A at the airport due to their donations to anti-LQBTQ groups. The state of Texas decided to pull a big government move and is about to pass a law that will keep cities from making any decision that goes against "a person's sincerely held religious belief," and, for some reason, also says, "including beliefs or convictions regarding marriage."
So here's what the state of Texas is biting off.
First, there will be a number of groups, companies, and others who will refuse to do business with Texas. This probably doesn't bother you because you're in a town that depends on local, not national tourism, and really isn't a destination for big business.
So, where's the problem? The problem is ANYONE can have "sincerely held religious beliefs." That means Muslims, Scientologists, and yes, even the Church of Satan. If you think this is a joke, you need to read up on how the Church of Satan has already intervened in abortion laws.
So while some may cheer this as a victory for religion or whatever, it's going to open a can of worms and probably some very lengthy - and expensive - legal fights.
Grab some popcorn, and get ready for a show.
