Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott defended Christian business owners from the Left’s rabid animosity by signing the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law on Monday. “This legislation applies to all Texans equally,” Fort Worth Republican Representative Matt Krause told Fox News. The new law prevents the government from unfavorably targeting businesses or individuals for contributing to religious organizations and was fast-tracked after the San Antonio City Council prevented a Chick-fil-A from opening a location due to Leftist outrage over its donations to organizations for traditional marriage. We expect this bill will become a model for similar legislation around the country, as the Left’s war on Christianity continues to escalate.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Monday signed the so-called “Save Chick-fil-A” bill into law, a new provision that supporters say defends the fast-food restaurant and protects religious freedoms. Opponents have argued it discriminates against the LGBT community.
Abbott, a Republican, did not hold a public signing ceremony, but he had signaled his support through a tweet a few weeks ago, DallasNews.com reported.
On May 20, Abbott tweeted a picture of a Chick-fil-A soft drink in front of a laptop showing a news article with the headline “’Save Chick-fil-A’ bill heads to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk” and wrote, “So. What are the odds I’ll sign the Chick-fil-A bill? I’ll let you know after dinner.
