Ted Cruz condemns SA City Council for chick-fil-A vote




SAN ANTONIO – US Senator Ted Cruz commissioned Twitter and condemned local leaders for excluding Chick-fil-A from the list of restaurants to be added to San Antonio International Airport ,

San Antonio City Council members voted 6: 4 on Thursday to rule out the beloved, faith-based fast food restaurant. On Friday, Cruz posted a news article about Twitter's vote saying "ridiculous."

On Saturday, he doubled his comments, saying the decision was "not Texas."

"The details of this story are even worse," Cruz said, tweeting a link to another story about the decision. "The City Council of San Antonio voted for a ban on @ChickfilA from the airport when the company gave way to the Christian Athletes & Salvation Army community! That's ridiculous, and not Texas. #LeftistIntolerance"

On Friday, District 1 Council member Roberto Trevino, who applied for Chick-fil-A's ban on a food and beverage package at the airport, made the following statement:

"With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become an advocate of equality and inclusion. San Antonio is a city of compassion, and we have no place in our public institutions for a business with anti-LGBTQ behavior. Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport. I am looking forward to the announcement of a suitable spare part of paradise. "

Paradise Lagardère operates shops and restaurants at airports, hotels and other locations in the US and Canada.

Texas Values, a not-for-profit organization that said it should champion faith, family, and freedom, took a different stance, saying in part, "Local governments targeting and banning private Christian companies like Chick-Fil-A are an enmity to the religion that the Texans will not stand for. I thought Texas was "open to business". I think that's true everywhere in Texas, except in San Antonio, where the government demands that you give up your religious beliefs. "
