Federal Complaints Allege Airports Restrict Religious Freedom by Excluding Chick-fil-a

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating two airports for alleged discrimination against the chicken chain associated with Christianity.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is looking into San Antonio International and Buffalo Niagara International airports after religious discrimination complaints were lodged over the fact that Chick-fil-A restaurants are not allowed at the facilities.

“The Department of Transportation has received complaints alleging discrimination by two airport operators against a private company due to the expression of the owner’s religious beliefs,” the FAA told Fox News.

It is illegal for federally-funded airports to discriminate against private entities based on their religious beliefs. If investigators determine that there is a basis behind these complaints, these airports will effectively be in violation of the law of the land.

“The FAA notes that federal requirements prohibit airport operators from excluding persons on the basis of religious creed from participating in airport activities that receive or benefit from FAA grant funding,” it said.

Chick-fil-A has directed money toward pro-Christian groups throughout the country, some of which have opposed gay marriage, making them hated by the Left. It hasn’t hurt their profit margins though as the unabashedly Christian, pro-family restaurant chain remains the nation’s leading chicken outfit.

San Antonio’s city council is on the record banning Chick-fil-A from operating in their airport for its “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.” Buffalo Niagara International caved and threw Chick-fil-A under the bus after a Democratic public official called them an “anti-LGBTQ corporation.”

If the FAA determines that these declarations constituted religious discrimination, Chick-fil-A could end up at these airports whether liberals like it or not.

First Liberty, a Christian organization that fights for religious liberty, issued the complaint to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in March. The organization believes that the San Antonio decision was anti-Christian and should disqualify them from certain federal grants.

“Federal taxpayers should not be required to subsidize religious bigotry,” First Liberty said about San Antonio’s decision to exclude Chick-fil-A.

The Christian organization is happy that their complaints are being taken seriously, as First Liberty pushes back against the hate campaign waged against Chick-fil-A from the Left.

“We are pleased that the FAA responded to our request by opening an investigation into San Antonio for its blatant, illegal religious discrimination against Chick-fil-A,” said First Liberty Associate Counsel Keisha Russell to Fox News.

“First Liberty also launched our own investigation into the City’s actions and we vow to get to the bottom of San Antonio’s decision. American business owners should not have to suffer because they want to operate their businesses in accordance with their religious beliefs. Few things are more un-American than government hostility against religion,” Russell added.

The state of Texas is rallying around Chick-fil-A, and a bill has been approved by the Texas legislature to override the anti-Christian decision by the San Antonio city council.

“The bill as filed ensures religious beliefs are protected from discrimination. It’s about the First Amendment and freedom of speech, freedom of religion — those uniquely American rights,” the author of the legislation said. It is expected to be signed into law in the near future.

Chick-fil-A maintains that they are not a discriminatory organization and are focused only on making delicious food for customers.

“We are grateful for all our customers and are glad to serve them at any time. We welcome and embrace all people, regardless of religion, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity,” the organization told Fox News.

Nevertheless, Chick-fil-A has become a lightning rod in the culture war. The increasing discrimination against Christians is a disturbing trend across the U.S., as religious exemptions for vaccinations and other religious protections are under attack. This would be a small but important victory for Christians if these complaints can Chick-fil-A operating at these airports.

GUT-WRENCHING: Suspected Rapist Freed From Jail Due to COVID-19 is Charged with Murdering Alleged Rape Victim

Violent suspects are roaming the streets in the guise of safety.

Published

on

Ibrahim Bouaichi, a Virginia man charged with rape who was set free from jail out of fears he could contract COVID-19, is now being charged with murdering the woman who accused him of raping her.

Bouaichi was found by police on Wednesday after shooting himself. He was in critical condition as of Thursday from his self-inflicted bullet wound. He was indicted last year on charges of rape, strangulation and abduction and denied bond in Alexandria.

Victim Karla Dominguez testified against Bouaichi last December. She spoke out against Bouaichi’s alleged sexual violence against her. Her harrowing testimony did not stop the courts from releasing Bouaichi, who is one of thousands of violent criminals released onto the streets due to the pandemic.

Bouaichi’s attorneys argued that their client, a suspected violent rapist, deserved to be let loose in order to protect him from contracting COVID-19. He was ultimately released on a $25,000 bond pending his trial against the wishes of the prosecutor.

After he was released, police believe that Bouaichi shot Dominguez dead in late July. Bouaichi shot himself after being involved in a chase by law enforcement who spotted the suspect in Prince George’s County.

Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins, the judge who decided to set Bouaichi free, retired in June and is not responding to comment requests from media sources wondering why he made his decision that very well may have resulted in a gruesome and untimely death.

Bouaichi’s attorneys, Manuel Leiva and Frank Salvato, said in a public statement that they were “certainly saddened by the tragedy both families have suffered here.” They added that they “were looking forward to trial. Unfortunately the pandemic continued the trial date by several months and we didn’t get the chance to put forth our case.”

Big League Politics has reported on how liberals have exploited COVID-19 pandemic fears to engineer a nationwide jailbreak of violent criminals:

San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin is bragging about his city’s jailbreak policies that have been implemented throughout the coronavirus pandemic, claiming in a Los Angeles Times op/ed that he is “keeping San Francisco safer by emptying the jail.”

“In mid-March, I started emptying out our city and county jail because those living and working there face a grave risk of falling ill, dying and spreading COVID-19,” Boudin wrote.

“My sense of urgency about this issue is professional, and it’s also personal: My 75-year-old father lives in a prison cell,” he added.

Because Boudin’s father is a jailbird, that means he wants others who have violated the law to be set free. He is using the mass hysteria from the pandemic as a pretense to set forth these lax criminal justice policies.

“According to the Prison Policy Initiative, almost 2.3 million people are incarcerated in this country. In jails, prisons, juvenile halls and immigration detention centers, they are trapped in close quarters in no way designed to shield them from a deadly virus,” Boudin wrote.

“Social distancing in densely populated cell blocks is impossible. Jail and prison inmates lack basic hygiene items, like sanitizer and masks. The daily churn of detainees and staff creates tremendous risk of an epidemic within the pandemic,” he added.

Boudin’s solution is to take these people who are disproportionately at risk to have coronavirus and free them so they can take their germs to infect the broader community. This is social justice at work, he argues.

“For decades, criminal justice policy has been driven by the sometimes realistic fear that any person released could commit a heinous crime. But data show that allowing such fears to override all other concerns is shortsighted,” he wrote.

“Locking up millions of people destroys families and communities; bankrupts local governments; tends to increase, not decrease, crime rates; and too often provides only cold comfort to victims. The pandemic is further evidence that mass incarceration can be a threat, not a boon, to public safety,” he added.

Last month, it was reported that San Francisco had already freed nearly half of their total inmate population.

It’s free reign for rapists, rioters, thugs and deadbeats as America gets a glimpse of who exactly will be in charge when diversity and multiculturalism fully take hold.
