The Texas Republican Party is the latest to mock San Antonio City Council over the Chick-fil-A debacle, posting photos of a roomful of delegates proudly holding up chicken sandwiches and displaying bags of Chick-fil-A food during the Executive Committee meeting over the weekend, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
"The Republican Party of Texas and our State Republican Executive Committee will always stand for religious liberty,' the Texas GOP said, calling San Antonio City Council 'leftist.'
In another social media post, the Texas GOP showed support for an investigation underway by Attorney General Ken Paxton into whether the statements of one Council member that Chick-fil-A was being barred from the new airport concessions agreement because of its alleged opposition toward same sex marriage violates state law and violates the City of San Antonio's own Non Discrimination Ordinance, which bans bias based on 'religion,' among other factors.
"We support General Paxton's investigation into the leftist San Antonio City Council's actions to discriminate against Chick-fil-A. We encourage everyone to head to Chick-fil-A today to show your support and post your picture here!"
Several people responded by saying they were going to eat at Chick-fil-A to show their opposition to San Antonio Council's actions.
The City is coming under withering fire nationwide for its decision ten days ago to single out Chick-fil-A for exclusion from the concessions agreement at the city owned airport.
A civil rights organization, the Plano based Liberty Institute, has also written a formal letter to Transportation Secretary Eliane Chou, reminding her that the federal government has a legal obligation to withhold federal grant money to entities which are found to be discriminating based on religious belief.
