The intolerant left’s war on Christianity and the popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A has run into headwinds after a spate of efforts to ban the eatery from airports.
Chick-fil-A has been targeted by boycotts and smear campaigns by activist groups and local politicians who have recently escalated their battle against the chain by falsely accusing the corporation of being intolerant in order to justify their own intolerance with the bans.
Their efforts have led to both San Antonio International and Buffalo Niagara International airports capitulating to the mob and in doing so, dictating to travelers what they are allowed to eat, once again showing that “diversity” has become an excuse for authoritarianism.

Fanatics on the left have experienced great success on college campuses in banning the chain and are now actively engaged kicking it out of airports before expanding their efforts to malls and cities which is inevitable.
Make no mistake, the cultural jihad against Chick-fil-A is rooted in a much larger attack on traditional American values when it comes to the freedom of religion and if the bad guys have any say about it, Christians will one day be deprived of their freedom to worship as they are in classic totalitarian and communist nations including China which serves as a role model for the growing wave of social shaming and censorship.
But the attacks on Chick-fil-A have may have now backfired.
On Friday, the Department of Transportation which includes the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced that it was launching an investigation into the airport bans over what is clearly religious discrimination.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is investigating two airports — San Antonio International and Buffalo Niagara International — over religious discrimination complaints, following the exclusion of Chick-fil-a from the premises, Fox News confirmed on Friday.
“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 agency said in a statement provided to Fox News.
According to the agency, federally funded airports cannot discriminate on the basis of religion. “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.
The popular chain has been ensconced atop the left’s massive hate list ever since they determined that it was a threat to gay marriage and the promotion of the larger agenda of forcibly imposing their ideology on all who disagree with them by smearing them as bigots and engaging in organized bullying campaigns.
Despite giving back to communities by supporting a number of charitable causes, Chick-fil-A continues to be demonized by extremists including House Democrats who last year made a big show of banning the “ideological food” from their traditional pre-Thanksgiving meal last year.
The pushback from the Trump administration is great news and is long overdue. Americans who value their constitutional freedoms including the right to freedom from discrimination based on their religious beliefs should pay close attention to the results of the investigation.
What would really be justice is if the probe expands into where the funding for the war on Chick-fil-A is coming from, these organized campaigns of what can only be described as economic terrorism have become far too commonplace in the nation since the election of President Trump and one would suspect that certain far-left billionaires are involved.
