More great news out of Texas. Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill designed to keep local governments from discriminating against Chick-fil-A:
CBN NEWS – Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law Monday.
The new law prohibits the government from taking “adverse action” against an individual or business based on contributions to religious organizations.
The Texas legislature passed SB 1978 after the San Antonio City Council voted to block Chick-fil-A from opening a restaurant at the city’s airport.
Chick-fil-A’s owners have donated to Christian groups like the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. And critics have accused Chick-fil-A of discriminating against the LGBTQ community by supporting groups that may hold biblical views about sexuality.
Supporters say the bill was necessary to protect religious freedoms, including the rights of individuals or groups to donate money to groups with religious beliefs.
Just like the bill that Abbott signed to protect freedom of speech on college campuses, this one too shouldn’t have been necessary.
Even though Abbott didn’t tweet a video or have a signing ceremony on Monday, he indicated his support for the bill last month with a tweet:
So. What are the odds I’ll sign the Chick-fil-A bill?
I’ll let you know after dinner.

It’s good to see Texas isn’t complacent on these issues and is using every weapon in their arsenal to keep these liberal fascists from doing this again.
