The persecution of Christian business Chick-Fil-A continues.

After the city of San Antonio called Chick-Fil-A a “symbol of hate” and banned the store from the city’s airport, Buffalo has done the same. Here’s more:

Buffalo Niagara International Airport canceled plans to open a Chick-fil-A after a New York politician accused the fast-food chain of discrimination.

Democratic New York State Assemblyman Sean Ryan took issue with Chick-fil-A’s Christian stances in a Facebook post that prompted the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA) to decide against previous plans to install the Chick-fil-A at the airport.

“As a state entity, the NFTA has a responsibility to avoid doing business with corporations who fund hateful and divisive groups. I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision,” Ryan wrote on Facebook.

Following Ryan’s post, the NFTA issued a statement announcing its agreement with Ryan’s stance.

“First and foremost, the NFTA is an organization that prides itself on its strong commitment to diversity and inclusion and stand firmly against any form of discrimination,” the statement said. “We have the utmost respect for Assemblyman Ryan and consider him a great partner and friend to us.”

Ironically, both BFTA and Ryan are engaging in discrimination against Christians in the same way pro-abortion forces do. Abortion activists have spent years attempting to force Christian companies like Hobby Lobby to pay for abortions and have targeted Christian pregnancy centers with laws attempting to fore them to refer for abortions.

In San Antonio, the City Council, on a 6-4 vote, removed a planned Chick-fil-A location from an airport concession agreement, after a councilman flagged the company.

That decision prompted an outcry from a top Texas official.

“The Constitution’s protection of religious liberty is somehow even better than Chick-fil-A’s chicken,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a letter to San Antonio officials. “Unfortunately, I have serious concerns that both are under assault at the San Antonio airport.”

Paxton also spoke out publicly against the ban, telling KLTV, “The City of San Antonio’s decision to exclude a respected vendor based on the religious beliefs associated with that company and its owners is the opposite of tolerance. The city’s discriminatory decision is not only out of step with Texas values, but inconsistent with the Constitution and Texas law.”
