City council voted 6-4 to award a multimillion-dollar contract to a company to operate several foods, beverage, and retail shops at the San Antonio International Airport. The agreement requires the company to drop Chick-fil-A from its list of restaurants because of its association with anti-LGBT groups… Not all partners were reviewed with the same criteria. Was this a vendetta against Chick-fil-A? Should they be kicked out of the airport? Let’s talk about it…

Patrick Southard:
“I think they are just playing politics. This isn’t right.”

Charlie Parker:
“I wonder how many Spurs tickets they got for that deal.”

Alexander Steele:
“This move is going to destroy Robert Trevino’s political career. Brad Kessler is now the front runner for his replacement in the District 1 city council seat. Thank God.”

Kirstie Grisham Latiker:
“Did they just happen to forget that Chick-fil-A opened up on a Sunday to feed those who donated blood after the pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando which was an LGBTQ club. I don’t know too much about them but I don’t quite think that they got much credit for that.”

Beth Green:
“Absolutely not. This is a gross misuse of power by the city council. As humans, we can make our own decisions on where to eat or shop. It’s not their responsibility at all. Also, from what I have read in several articles, city officials didn’t even reach out to Chick-fil-A for clarification or an opportunity to discuss.”

Randall R Foster:
“No, I don’t agree. Agree or not, Chick-fil-A has a right to do what they wish with their money. If you don’t want to give them yours then don’t. Banning them from a city is wrong. What’s next, imprisoning people who disagree with you.”

Joyce Parish:
“It should be decided by the consumers where they would like to spend their hard earned money. Texas you are turning into California and it makes me sad.”

Lu Bonilla:
“It’s ridiculous because city officials donate to Christian organizations. They want to shove things down our throat if we don’t agree. What about our religious rights? They aren’t doing anything wrong but donating to who they want to, it does not matter. They will get more business just watch!”

Jeff Magness:
“It would be great if our city council actually focused on important things…”

Pete A Bornkessel:
“Paint rainbow crosswalks and ban Chick-fil-A… I see the direction you’re going there, San Antonio.”

Jeannine Grigry:
“One question, when did city council turn into God? I thought he was the only one who could judge.”

Belinda A. Garcia:
“This is a decision that people should make for themselves. The city should not tell us what/where we should or shouldn’t eat.”

Robin Jones:
“It is actually deeper than that. I was watching the whole meeting. The contract proposals and bids are based on numerous things, actually a ton. Think about it, they would have to look into EVERY company’s beliefs and you never know what each one feels are participants in or against. Each group had various concepts. It was more the fact that the actual process was not to flip a brand after submitting a belief.”
