Texas Gov signs bill protecting Chick-fil-A’s religious freedom


STUART: GOVERNOR OF TEXAS JUST SIGNED THE SAVE CHICK-FIL-A BIL BILL, AS IT IS KNOWN. IT STOPS THE GOVERNMENT FROM DISSEMINATING AGAINST COMPANIES BEGIN MONEY TO RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS. THIS IS ALL AT THE SAN ANTONIO AIRPORT BARRED CONSTRUCTION OF A CHICK-FIL-A STORE THERE. BECAUSE OF THE COMPANY’S RELIGIOUS CONTRIBUTIONS. LOOK WHO IS HERE. HE’S A FORMER CHIEF MARKETING OFFICER AT CHICK-FIL-A AND ALSO EXTRAORDINARY GOOD BOOK, COVERT TOWELS AND CHICK-FIL-A. THAT’S THE NAME OF THE BOOK. STEVE ROBINSON JOINED US. BIG PROMOTION FOR THE BOOK.>>THANK YOU. STUART: GREAT TO SEE YOU. LOOK, SERIOUS QUESTION TO START WITH. I WANT TO KNOW WHY BELIEVING IN TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE MAKES SOMEONE A BIGOT? WHAT IS THE LINE OF THINKING THAT YOU COME ACROSS WITH THAT ARGUMENT?>>I DON’T KNOW I KNOW THE ANSWER. THIS IS A COUNTRY OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, FREEDOM, LITERALLY AS THE CONSTITUTION SAYS PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS. OUR RESPONSES ARE THAT WE ARE HERE TO SERVE EVERYONE. CHICK-FIL-A IS IN THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS.>>YOU DEALT WITH THE START YOUR CAREER ->>OH YEAH. STUART: AND YOU DEALT WITH THIS>>I SERVED FOR MANY YEARS AND NO PART OF THEIR ORGANIZATION NOW. STUART: WROTE A BOOK ABOUT IT BUT DEAL WITH THAT ARGUMENT CONSTANTLY.>>I THINK WE TRY TO MIRROR WHAT OUR FOUNDER ALWAYS BELIEVED IN WAS IN BUSINESS TO PROTECT PROVIDE GREAT FOOD, GRACIOUS HOSPITALITY FOR EVERYONE. STUART: THOUGHT IT. LET’S MOVE ON. ARE YOU EVER GOING TO SERVE IN A CHICK-FIL-A RESTAURANT? I KNOW YOU’RE LAUGHING AT THIS BUT EIGHT VEGAN CHICKEN, MEATLESS MEAT?>>I DON’T THINK THE. [LAUGHTER] STUART: WHY NOT?>>FIRST OF ALL, WE GOT OUT AHEAD BECAUSE THE CARS HOUSE TOLD PEOPLE NOT TO EAT BEEF 20 YEARS AGO. REMEMBER? [LAUGHTER] STUART: I DO.>>THE PROBLEM IS WE ALWAYS – DIFFICULT TO PLACE IMAGES 440 CALORIES, GRILLED TOOK PLACE IMAGES 330 CALORIES AND ONLY 6 GRAMS OF FAT AND IF YOU ORDER A CHICK-FIL-A NUGGET IT’S ONLY 110 CALORIES AND 4 GRAMS OF FAT. WE WERE ALREADY – WE WERE ALREADY THERE IN TERMS OF THE HEALTH OPTIONS. WE HAVE SALADS AND STUFF LIKE THAT. STUART: HERE’S ANOTHER TREND, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THIS UP DELIVERED AND GO ONLINE AND IT’S DELIVERED TO YOU. WILL YOU DO THAT?>>THEY ARE EXPERIMENTING WITH THAT. THAT’S A HARD TRYING NOT TO PAY ATTENTION TO AN EXPERIMENT WITH. CHICK-FIL-A IS EXPERIMENTING WITH THAT. I THINK THEIR GREATEST CONCERN, WHICH I SHARE, IS IT RUNS THE RISK OF COMMODITIZING CHICK-FIL-A’S BRAND AND MAKING IT LOOK LIKE EVERY OTHER FAST FOOD BRAND. CHICK-FIL-A IS KNOWN FOR THEIR FOOD BUT QUITE FRANKLY, WE BECOME BETTER KNOWN FOR OUR SERVICE AND HOSPITALITY. YOU CAN’T DO THAT WHEN A COMPLETE STRANGER OR MACHINE DELIVERS YOUR FOOD. STUART: INTERESTING.>>THAT IS ATTENTION AND THIS IS A BRAND BUILT AROUND GRACIOUS ENGAGEMENT, GENUINE ENGAGEMENT AND YOU LOSE THAT WHEN YOU USE A COMMODITY SERVICE.>>I WISH WE COULD HAVE MORE

    Chick Fil A does have an excellent customer service. I visited their store and I love their friendly service. It’s not the same as from McDonald, Burger King, Jack in the Box, KFC, Taco Bell or anything other fast food restaurants. Chick fil A has good food and great service .

    chik fil a is one of the busiest restaurant chains that I've ever seen, the two near me in N.J. always has a line out the door & the drive through is the same. They still do it the old fashion way, give your order & they will bring it to you, the only complaint I've ever seen is why aren't they open on Sunday. I think they have it right, they follow their Christian values & I support them even more because of it. SO for every Leftist Liberal weeny that want to picket them it just make me buy an extra sandwich for my kids. LMAO

    A few years back the homosexuals started this crap about Chick fil A…then Mike Huckabee suggested for Christians and good people over the country to come out and show support for them…every single Chick fil A to my knowledge in Tennessee at least were so overwhelmed with business many if not most ran out of chicken…the local one you couldn't even turn into the parking lot…media coverage? Crickets…of course the homosexuals had their counter protest and locally there was maybe 5 or 6 degenerates protesting…oh but the media covered like they were returning heroes…makes me sick

    Can anyone compare to the smiles and positive attitude employees have at Chick fil a to the sneers snares and bad attitude at mcdonalds? Plus the food is better quality, better tasting less processed. By the way they are cheaper than Mcdonalds especially for chicken. Why is there even a choice it is clear having morals makes a company clearly better they are the Publix of drive thru food.

    Isn't that just peachy, but Chick A Fil is allowed to discriminate against customers, refusing to allow paying customers to purchase food & beverage. Refusing to allow a human being to purchase food and beverages is criminal. It's happened to us. Apparently, Chick A Fil has an Anti American/NAZIS agenda refusing to serve people who have worked for the United States Government. United States Navy Protectors Of Freedom/Gulf War Veteran/Fallen Heroes Insignia Etc. God doesn't discriminate people do. Remember, Hell doesn't have air conditioning
