Protest Scuttles Chick-Fil-A Location In Buffalo Airport

Buffalo Niagara International Airport has scrapped plans to open a Chick-fil-A after a NY state politician accused the fast-food chain of "divisive anti-LBGTQ rhetoric".

"I strongly urge the NFTA to reverse this decision", the Democrat wrote.

"A publicly financed facility like the Buffalo Niagara International Airport is not the appropriate venue for a Chick-fil-A restaurant. NY is a welcoming state that celebrates diversity".

The Texas Attorney's General's office has launched an investigation to determine if the San Antonio City Council violated the First Amendment by barring Chick-fil-A, a franchise regarded by some as being opposed to same-sex marriage, from opening a restaurant in the city's airport, the Texas Tribune reported. Delaware North Cos. on Friday apparently scuttled plans for the area's second Chick-fil-A announced not even 24 hours previously by the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority. "Thank you to everyone who reached out to share their opinion".

It is unclear at this time what company will take Chick-fil-A's place inside the airport.

Is Chick-fil-A being discriminated against for its religious views?

"Recent coverage about Chick-fil-A continues to drive an inaccurate narrative about our brand".

Chick-fil-A's charitable giving foundation "gave $1.8 million to discriminatory groups in 2017, despite reportedly claiming it was winding down that practice a year ago", ThinkProgress reported last month, citing "newly released tax filings". More than 145,000 people from different backgrounds and beliefs represent the Chick-fil-A brand.
