♬ do you know the way to Chick-fil-A ♪

la la laa la la

A California city that last year approved the addition of a Chick-fil-A at its local airport now wants to send a message of support to LGBTQ people as the opening date for the fast-food restaurant nears.

The San Jose City Council voted 11-0 on Tuesday to hang rainbow flags in support of LGBTQ people and pink, blue and white flags for transgender rights at or near a Chick-fil-A due to open in May at San Jose International Airport.

WHOOPS!


find the Chick-fil-A in a crowded airport!!

According to the San Jose Spotlight, city attorney Rick Doyle warned against objecting to Chick-fil-A on grounds of political or religious beliefs as these may be found in violation of the First Amendment.

love perseverance wins!

City organizers voted to withhold a proposed two-year contract extension from 2026 to 2028 for airport vendors that do not open every day. That would directly affect Chick-fil-A; the company is famously not open on Sundays.

    I have to admit I thought it was hilarious that Chick Fil A opened in a football stadium, in Atlanta.
    And no, they didn’t open on Sundays there.

    I’ll bet the other food servers in the airport would love to have a competitor that shuts down on Sundays.

    Rainbows are Newtonian, too.

    ^ Might be a good job for the local Tea Party cell.
    Bring ChickA ammiches and eat ‘em in front of the commission,
    especially while speaking.

    (What? Nah, gettin’ a big black & white cow in there would be too hard)

    Aren’t these the same people who lecture me daily on inclusion and tolerance?
