More Airports BAN Chick-Fil-A!

They are punishing Chick-Fil-A for having Christian values.

Yet another airport has banned Chick-fil-A from doing business for its socially conservative views on biblical marriage.

According to Fox News, the Buffalo Niagara International Airport suspended plans to construct a Chick-fil-A restaurant approved by the hospitality management company Delaware North and the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA). The decision followed Assemblyman Sean Ryan blasting the NFTA on Twitter for allegedly doing business “with corporations who fund hateful and divisive groups.”

“I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision,” Ryan continued. “I don’t believe the leadership of the NFTA intends to help spread hate and discrimination, but allowing a corporation like Chick-fil-A to do business at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport will help to fund continued divisive anti-LGBTQ rhetoric. New York is a welcoming state that celebrates diversity.”

“The views of Chick-fil-A do not represent our state or the Western New York community, and businesses that support discrimination have no place operating in taxpayer-funded public facilities,” he added.

Later, after the NFTA reversed the decision to greenlight Chick-fil-A, Ryan celebrated it on Twitter. “I applaud the decision that has been made to remove Chick-fil-A from plans for the Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Thank you to everyone who reached out to share their opinion.”

He continued: “We hope in the future the NFTA will make every effort to contract with businesses that adhere to anti-discrimination policies, and we’re confident another vendor who better represents the values of the Western New York community will replace Chick-fil-A as a part of this project in the very near future.”

Chick-fil-A has never had in place a policy that discriminates against LGBT employees or LGBT customers. A spokesperson for the business confirmed this in a statement to WKBW.

“Recent coverage about Chick-fil-A continues to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand. We do not have a political or social agenda or discriminate against any group,” said the spokesperson. “More than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs represent the Chick-fil-A brand. We embrace all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The hate toward the chicken sandwich empire began in 2012 when company president and COO Dan Cathy expressed support for traditional marriage, prompting boycotts across the country from LGBTQ activists.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, ‘We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'” Cathy said at the time. “I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about.”

Just last year, two major publications wrote scathing articles begging people to boycott the business: The New Yorker and the Huffington Post. “If You Really Love LGBTQ People, You Just Can’t Keep Eating Chick-fil-A,” wrote Noah Michelson of HuffPo. When Chick-fil-A wanted to set up shop in New York City, Dan Piepenring of The New Yorker called it a “creepy infiltration” of the city.

Most recently, a dean at Rider University resigned from his post when the school banned the chicken restaurant on campus. As reported by The Daily Wire’s Ashe Schow, the San Antonio airport recently banned Chick-fil-A from setting up shop for the exact same reason as the NFTA.

“In a 6-4 vote, with one abstention, the San Antonio City Council voted March 21 to deny the chicken restaurant a spot in the terminal’s 10,000 square feet of available space, according to a report from Out In SA, the sister publication of the San Antonio Current,” reported Schow. “The reason the city council voted against Chick-Fil-A is the same reason leftists continue to attack the restaurant chain — the company’s religious views.”

A few days after this news was reported, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sent the San Antonion mayor and city council a letter announcing he would open an investigation into whether the council’s decision to keep Chick-fil-A from the airport violated state law.

  1. This is discrimination against a company due totally to religious beliefs. If it was an Islamic cult business there would not be a thought of stopping them. This is unconstitutional and any federal funds or employees paid by federal funds be removed immediately until such time as the airport complies with our Constitution.

    1. I totally agree. I am gay and a Christian and have no problem with their Christian values. Think I’ll go there for dinner tonight.

  2. I will start eating at Chick-Fil-A even more often. Who the hell do these morally bankrupt assholes think they are pontificating about who we have to support. This business does not discriminate against LGBTQ people. They are not required by law to have to accept the beliefs of the LGBTQ people. They are required to serve them and not discriminate against them and they haven’t discriminated. This sounds more like someone paid this jackass of a politician off to cause trouble for Chick-FilA.

  3. Just another Loser politician trying to eradicate Capitalism in these United State. Hey blowhard check out the 2.million leaving the NYS border for more prosperous place to grow. Get out of the food business and run for president. You are a weakling moron. Thanks for making NYS
    weaker than it was because of inept politicians like you looking for press coverage. Pathetic human? you are. New York State of mind is crumbling because of people like you who having seen a crane to build in 40 years in your district. Congratulations you got some press and NYS taxpayers lost but again. Congrats as well on the taxpayers doubling your salary. Of course you voted that in quite
    quickly for “you.”

  4. The people running Buffalo Niagara International Airport can take their airport and put .where no one can see it, least of all them!

  5. What are those crazy people thinking of or afraid of. So not everyone agrees with marriage the same way. That is their right. And I’ve been to many Chick-fil-as in many locations. All the workers and managers are as nice as can be to EVERY customer that comes in. They do not judge anyone or treat anyone differently. I think this is a very dangerous precedent they are setting – banning the restaurant for no other reason. Pretty soon half the restaurants won’t be in business just because of their religious beliefs. As long as they don’t discriminate as to their customers, there is no reason to ban them. Very disgraceful and does not make people more receptive to the LGBT community but makes them dislike them more.

  6. What next, are they going to close down all Christian Churches in the Buffalo Niagara and Western New York State areas? Or maybe start doing what the Bible prophecy predicts, killing Christians, many by beheadings, as all this persecution of Christians is leading up to. This is very similar to what happened to the Jews in Nazi Germany, so will nobody do anything to stop these Socialist Democrats from doing the same to the Christians in the USA, as socialists have a historical record of doing in Germany, Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba, Cambodia, and now taking place in Venezuela too?

    Why doesn’t anyone asks these biased bigoted Socialist Democrats which “hateful and divisive groups” are they accusing Chick-Fil-A of funding, or is asking for proof of false accusations become passe ever since they started doing the same thing to President Trump? This is Obama’s real promised “CHANGE” for the USA and it’s people, and the only legacy that Obama will ever have, because Christians were not persecuted in the USA until Obama became President, refused to participate in the yearly Christian “Day of Prayer” celebration in the USA, but instead prayed in the White House with many invited Muslims, prostrated on prayer mats facing Mecca, during every Islamic holiday.

    Think all this information are lies? Then check it out for yourself, and learn the sad truth of Obama’s promised “CHANGE” for the USA, what it actually was, not what you were told it would be, and ask supposed Democrat Christians why they never noticed these facts, while they were too busy worshipping Obama as the modern day Muslim Messiah, the real and actual Islamic antichrist?

    1. Randy, this is slowly becoming a non-Christian country, sorry to say. Look at our Democrat congress. The majority of them okay everything anti-godly – abortion, infanticide, same sex marriage, on and on. This should not surprise us. It is predicted that these days would come. But God will have the last say. Amen.

  7. These politicians have no brains, worrying about what business go in the airports is not their business. They have more important things to worry about. Like immigration and the Muslim coming into the USA. Think about it u idiot.

    1. Chick Fillet is one of my favorites. Please shut down Starbucks. Their coffee sucks. I avoid all grocery store locations that have Starbucks-like to have a cup of coffee when I shop! Shame to have all this hate and dislike in America, but then the Dumbocrats have become the party of hate, evil and stupidity.

  8. I pick up my Chick Fillet before the airport carry the bag in plain sight and eat it while in the waiting area along with wearing my M. E. G. A. Hat, and my I support the N. R. A. shirt and my jacket I stand for the Flag a d kneel for the Cross. This is A.erica and forcing the beliefs of less than one percent on the rest of us is Un American, or even 8% that are Secular Progressive Humanist American Bolsheviks is wrong . Their beliefs are diametrically opposed to the truth you want to believe the lie that is your prerogative and when you die and Stand before JESUS CHRIST YOU WILL BE WITHOUT EXCUSE, And it will Be between you and HIM. We are to explain what the Bible says and pray for the lost we can not force our beliefs on them like they do to use it is our commission to go and to tell, and to pray but if they still choose not to believe there is nothing we can do to force them and we are not to hate them but to feel sorry for them for as JESUS CHRIST said in John 3:18, “He who believes us not condemned, but he who does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the Only Begotten SON of GOD.”.

  9. Shame on the Buffalo assemblyman and the attendant assembly in voting it down. Ditto to San Antinio but kudos for the TX AG for opening an investigation. This politically charged atmosphere today is getting to be a total debacle for christians and conservatives. Good question about how Starbucks isn’t being vilified for similar conduct. Except for the fact that the CEO is a flaming liberal.

  10. Why doesn’t anyone seem to notice that the liberal socialists are practicing discrimination towards Christians and are not being inclusive. There is free enterprise in this country and no one should be discriminated against. This doesn’t seem legal to me. What a bunch of Hippocrates !!! They shouldn’t be able to have this kind of power. The politicians keep backing down to these idiots.

  11. The Founders would be ROLLING OVER in their graves ! Absolutely unreal how these IDIOTS believe that barring ANY company for having an opinion!

    Freedom and Liberty to say what one wants to say and support who they want to support is what this country was founded on! NOT “inclusion” of the same thoughts…

    If people had a problem with Chil-Fil-A they won’t buy their product! This Assembly IDIOT is a racist bigot… ya, I said it!

    He must scared to have businesses that disagree with his lack of values! What a piss poor leader! Probably is on the gov payroll because he could not get a job anywhere else!

  12. OK, first let me apologize for all the trouble this post is going to cause.
    I am a gay Christian man. My personal Savior is the Lord Jesus Christ.
    Now, on to the post. I do not understand where one group thinks its alright to discriminate against another group but that group does not have the right to discriminate against them. This is America, or it was the last time I checked. We have a right to buy products where we please. All these but hurt millennial’s need to grow thicker skin. That includes the gay community. Get over yourselves, no body owns you anything. You have it so easy today and don’t even know it. You should have grown up in the time period I did. Then you would at least have thicker skin. Way to many young people get butt hurt over the slightest thing. If Chick-Fill-Lay did something you didn’t like, then do not buy their product. If this is what the country has to look forward to, then is is past time to start praying for this country.
    Another thing, why is it alright for Muslims to discriminate against Christians but the reverse is NOT ALLOWED. Get your act together people, time is running out.

  13. We have but to relax and watch as the liberal dem bloodsucking parasitical leeches go bankrupt.
    People will notice that the liberal cretins are working against GoD.
    Ny is already losing about 50 thousand people a year and lots of tax money San Antone will see shortly that the rest of the people in Texas will not put up with them. They will find that the state government doesn’t like that and will take measures that will hurt them Then they will quit, but it will be too late for them.

  14. Chich-Fil-A has every right to their beliefs and so does everybody else. Part of your religious freedom does not include forcing it on me. If the airport and the majority of the residents don’t want someone like them representing their city, that’s what makes America great. Not some silly red hat made in China.

  15. This is sad, Chick-Fil-A sells chicken sandwiches and they do not try to put their believes on anyone. You do not have the right to keep them out of the Airport with what they do or believe. Everyone loves Chick-Fil-A and you are hurting yourselves and your Airport. People will buy it and bring it into the Airport and not service the airport. Big big big mistake….. Reconsider and let them sell their chicken there and make the people happy.

  16. ARE THEY THE SAME AIRPORTS THAT SHOW THE COMMUNIST NUT NETWORK CNN TV ONLY?
    IF THEY ARE BEING INTIMIDATED BY THE COMMUNISTS THEN IT IS TIME TO HAVE 65 MILLION TRUMPETEERS TO INTIMIDATE THEM.

  17. This is way normal people hate you crazy fucks. I pose a comment that you don’ agree with and you don’ t put it up. Only the crazy christians count. Normal people don’t want to do business with company’s that discriminate against people. You have the right to believe whatever you want, but just because you believe it doesn’t mean I have to and vice versa. Maybe you should go shit in your red Chinese hat

  18. Never would of thought that eating a chicken sandwich from a restaurant that the CEO made a traditional marriage remark would anger the 6.8 % of the population to the point of calling restaurant a hate organization . Heck I’ll bet the 6.8% have eaten at Chick-Fil-A and enjoyed the food . Will also bet it is a much smaller percentage of our population trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill so that the greater percentage can not enjoy Chick-Fil-A food at airports just to show how asinine they can be in their quest for power over others .

  19. Enough is enough, we need our rights restored, If I don’t want to sell to someone that is my right, there are plenty of vendors that will do it, but we should not be forced into it. If my faith says NO, then that should be good enough.

  20. How about you mind your own business the world can do without you cork sucking kitty licking people. You have already broken GODS law don`t mess with us. Don`t push it people might once again change their minds and do away with you. Be careful Chick-Fil-A could be the very thing normal people need? It could very well be your demise. Why don`t you get a hobby or a real job.

  21. Every Christian must be tolerant and careful of every other special group but themselves must endure the hatefulness of the very ones who decry tolerance…
    We have had enough! Time to drag them into court and hit their pocketbook!

  22. Ban all you want,Chic-fil-A will rise to the occasion ,I live in the Pittsburgh area
    I pass at least (2) chick-fil-a ‘s restaurants a dozen times a week,they are packed,morning
    until closing.Chick -fil-a does not have a stance against LGBT,they have a right to stand
    up for their religious beliefs,what are you doing?,the same thing,standing up for your beliefs,
    difference?Christians don’t try to ruin people or their lively hood,if the LGBT.is,
    the right way,then don’t worry about us Christians,or do you have doubts,[hmm]
    Christians never waiver …
    ?

  23. THis finally made a decision for me. Thursday I intend to put on my NRA shirt, my MEGA cap, pickup my bag of Chick-Fil-A goodies and go sit in the airport waiting room while I eat my Chick-Fil-A meal. Anyone who doesn’t like it had best be prepared to take it to the limit. Enough has become TOO MUCH.

  24. If the decisions are based on religion, can Chick-Fil-A not have grounds for criminal/and/or civil rights , charges against these airports, or have grounds for lawsuits?

  25. That’s discrimination against Christians.
    Sue the city and keys boycotte all the stores and restaurants at their airportds . Will buy Chic Gil on the way to airport and eat it in plain view .
    Also I refuse to buy any goods at their communist stores or watch their TV

  26. Sean Ryan is just like all the other childish haters on the left trying to push their hate on those who don’t which puts him in the punk class like the others..

  27. I’ll lay even money that a person wearing any “gay” apparel would be welcomed far more often in that collection of “haters” aka Chick-Fil-A than a person wearing an MAGA hat would in any of these enlightened,progressive, inclusive liberal establishments! Their hypocrisy is beyond staggering!

  28. This will not hurt Chick-fil-A. As I pass by this restaurant in the morning, the customers are parked around the block waiting to get in!!! They are a true Christian family and I give them credit for sticking to their values. In any crisis they are the first to respond. I can name many where they came to the rescue of people in need!!!

  29. Who is this cretin Ryan, with a name like Ryan he must be Irish and the Irish love to play a joke on everybody.

  30. Assemblyman Sean Ryan should be encouraging businesses and corporations to do to business in Buffalo not driving them away!

  31. This is a crock of crap. This Country was created on Christian values and now because of some perverted, Godless, sick, valueless p.o.s. morons, a great God fearing Company that pays taxes, employs many people, invests in our great Country and supports many charities and misc. organizations gets punished. What the hell happened to “the majority rules”?

  32. I was recently on a layover at Dallas Love airport. I noticed the Chick-fil-a had @ 30 people inline for an hour and a half. Other vendors averaged 5-6. Way to go Chick-fil-a. I’d say Sean Ryan is the one preaching hate.

  33. God bless chik-fil-a! It’s sad that our state thinks they speak for everyone. Keep your values and you’ll continue to prosper!

  34. I HAVE BEEN IN A NUMBER OF AIRPORTS AND FOUND ANY NUMBER OF ETHNIC RESTAURANTS AVAILABLE SO THERE SHOULD BE NO PROBLEM ADDING A CHICK-FIL-A , IF YOU DON’T AGREE WITH THERE POLICIES AND BELIEFS YOU DON’T HAVE TO EAT THERE BUT IT IS WRONG TO DEPRIVE OTHERS OF THE CHNCE TO EAT AT CHICK-FIL-A THIS IS EQUAL RIGHTS.

  35. I will support Chick-Fil-A. They’ve made their beliefs known but don’t discriminate. So disagreeing isn’t allowed anymore – WOW!
