The San Antonio city council banned Chick-Fil-A from operating in its airport. Councilman Robert Trevino is leading the charge against the third largest fast-food chain in the nation. “Everyone has a place here, and everyone should feel welcome when they walk through our airport.”  Trevino should have said that everyone should feel welcome except Chick-Fil-A. The same thing happened in Buffalo when New York Democratic assemblyman, Sean Ryan said that “the views of Chick-fil-A do not represent our state or the Western New York community.” National Review Editor Rich Lowry said "This is about punishing the Georgia-based company for the faith of its leadership. The official bans are anti-Christian, unconstitutional and a harbinger of a larger effort to hunt down and punish any organization that has uncongenial views on sexual morality."
