San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa should perform the duties he pledged to fulfill when he swore his oath of office. He promised to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The First Amendment guarantees the rights of freedom of expression and religion: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech.”
Supervisor Canepa repeats misinformation regarding Chick-fil-A’s alleged anti-LGBTQ agenda. Chick-fil-A’s charitable foundation gave some of their donations to charities that the liberal left states are anti-LGBTQ. Two of the charities are the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army. According to the liberal propaganda those organizations require their employees to refrain from “homosexual acts,” therefore Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBTQ for donating to these charities.
The Salvation Army works in over 130 countries; they run charity shops, operate homeless shelters, provide disaster relief, and provide humanitarian aid to developing countries. This doesn’t sound to me like an organization that leaves out any type of community, yet Chick-fil-A is deemed to be anti-LGBTQ because it donates to the Salvation Army. Wow, what a stretch.
Supervisor Canepa has no right to not allow a business to move into a location because he doesn’t agree with their charitable donations.
