Texas Governor scores victory for private businesses

Note to Ulysses: Please take notes. *THIS* is what is known as a good discussion thread. It invites feedback and includes the thread author’s take on the issue.

From FoxNews.com:

Quote:
Texas Governor 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. @ChickfilA #txlege”

The new law stops the government from taking unfavorable action against a business or person for contributions to religious organizations.

The bill was fast-tracked in the GOP-controlled legislature and originally was introduced after the San Antonio City Council blocked Chick-fil-A from opening a location in the city’s airport because of reported donations to organizations that protest gay marriage and other LGBT issues.

Some council members said they were taking a stand over Chick-fil-A’s values and the fact that the owners have donated to anti-LGBT causes.

I don’t understand why this bill even has to exist. Why is government intruding upon the rights of private business in the first place? Businesses have the right to donate money in support of gay organizations. So why wouldn’t they have the right to support opposing organizations?

If I read this correctly the bill prevents the government from penalizing businesses for having a particular religious position. In other words limiting the governments reach.

Isn’t that how it was always supposed to be?

Absolutely.I'm just very wary of legislation that is supposed to fix a problem. It seldom does. Congress needs problems so they can justify their existence. Our healthcare system is a wreck (and still the best in the world) Who wrecked it? The congress. Who promises to fix it? The congress. Who consistently fails to fix it? The congress. The same goes for every other issue.

But as far as Chick Fil-A goes they have never actually discriminated against anyone. They serve everybody. But opposing views are not allowed in the modern democrat party.

Of course Gov Abbott signed it.  Why wouldn't any Gov, including a democrat?   Basically, it say says "all welcome".

Why was the bill written in the first place?  Why is the focus on Chick-fil-a again?
