College organization redoubles efforts to remove Chik-fil-A from campuses
New York Metro ^ | August 12, 2012 | Bruce Walsh

Posted on 08/12/2012 8:28:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

In just a few short weeks, the Chick-fil-A culture wars may gravitate toward college campuses as students across the country return to class.

Campus Pride -- the largest organization of LGBT college students nationwide -- says that it intends to use Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy's recent comments as leverage in its decade-long effort to remove the fast-food chain from college campuses.

"A lot of things have happened recently to educate college students about this company's activities. When they get back on campus, there's going to be even more direct action taking place," says Shane Windmeyer, the executive director of Campus Pride. "We want to let students know that every time they buy Chick-fil-A, they're supporting a company that funds hate groups."

Campus Pride has long opposed Chick-fil-A because of WinShape, a nonprofit founded by the Cathy family in 1984. Over the years, WinShape has given money to various anti-gay groups, including the Family Research Council -- which, as Windmeyer points out, is designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Campus Pride also intends to challenge food services contractors that offer Chick-fil-A on campuses. And the group will likely gain some traction there: Two of the three major providers -- Aramark and Sodexo -- are considered LGBT-friendly corporations by the Human Rights Campaign, and both seem to value that status.

"What Dan Cathy said, actually, I think he has every right to say. I think he has every right to own a business. In fact, I'm so glad he has finally come out as anti-gay. It makes it easier for people to choose between his company and others," says Windmeyer. "But consumers also have the right to know what groups his company funds. It's kind of funny that the same company that sells chicken with cows also claims to be Christian, yet funds hate groups. So I think they are very confused."

More “direct action.” Meaning, they’re going to burn some stores.

Thoughtcrime is to be punished by “direct action”.

The employees of a thought criminal are also to be punished. It’s only diverse.

Perhaps LGBT organizations should be removed form campus since they have no tolerance for any other point of view aside from their own.

If Chick-fil-A is not allowed ot have a point of view, then why are they?

Are we not “equal” in this country?

I believe the Southern Poverty Law Center defines 'hate group' as any group that stands up to liberal elites. Personally, this gay group that wants to destroy a legitimate American Business BECAUSE of their religious beliefs - strike me as a "hate group'.

Maybe the definition is based on who's ox is being gored....

If the normal students allow the few perverts among them decide how they must think and what they may or may not eat, that's fine with me.

If I had a kid anywhere near such a university (last was Georgetown, Walsh School of Foreign Service, '90) I would give her a choice: stay and pay your own way, or change schools.

I will never financially support overt militant perverts, albeit indirectly!

Windmeyer is a tiny controlling deviant twit.

He will never redefine my language!
A hundred years ago "not supporting something" never meant attacking it or hating it.

And a hundred years from now I hope the "normals" have squished the militant deviant perverts back into the darkest corner of the closet, under the rock from where they emerged.

What's overlooked here is that the SPLC is a hate organization.

"What Dan Cathy said, actually, I think he has every right to say. I think he has every right to own a business. In fact, I'm so glad he has finally come out as anti-gay.

Cathy said he supported traditional marriage. He said nothing about being anti-gay or hating anyone.

If there's a hate group involved in this, it's Campus Pride.

The Left loves misinformation and hyperbole. Cathy is being painted as some monster coming to grind up homosexuals.

Instead the truth is that like the vast majority of Americans he believes in marriage. The kind practiced since written history began.

That homosexuals target the young is not surprise. There are few more ignorant than government school graduates attending colleges. They have no experience with marriage or parenting. They’ve been drained of all Christian influence and they’re susceptible to the dumbest ideas and propaganda.

I for one welcome this fight. By making campuses battlegrounds they put the educational 5th column into the bright light of day. They essentially invite a response by conservatives. Let’s expose them.

Give them the history of homosexuality. Show that it has always been a mental illness and that by politics, not science, it was “normalized”.

We’re witnessing a resurgence in interest in American history and the Founding. Let’s press forward on all fronts with logic and truth. The Left is a dissembling mess and always has been. Exposure of their idiotic and failed ideas is the cure.

Isn’t it funny (snix) that only recently all these “tolerant and compassionate liberals” were whining and whimpering about “free speech”......and that they were being left out.

At one time gays whimpered about being stuck in the closet-—all they wanted was to “come out.”

Now these groups are fire-breathing hate groups seeking revenge....launching violent jihad on those who dare “speak” their sincere beliefs.

To these haters “free speech” means their free speech.
...in their sick minds no one else has the right.

RE :”To these haters “free speech” means their free speech

If you disagree with them then that is ‘hate speech’.

The trick is to bait them (on camera) into saying ‘hate speech’ should be outlawed.

RETOOL YOUR SCHOOL is a campus improvement grant program created by The Home Depot, designed to help HBCUs make enduring improvements to their campus and facilities.

This year, we are proud to announce that we’ve expanded the program. In addition to the $50,000 Tier I Grant, we are introducing a new $25,000 Campus Pride Grant for the school that shows the most initiative in promoting their proposals and garnering votes, and we are also providing an additional $10,000 Tier II Grant. In all, we’ve increased the total grant funds available to $185,000.

Yeah that is 'funny'. But what's not funny is something I found Saturday by accident when searching through those 'juicy links' I told you about on the 'Rahm's Family Values' thread.

It was only 2005, seven short years ago that Lawrence v Texas was decided by SCOTUS which made buggery (cough-gag) 'legal' in the USA and its territories. And back at that time the gays cried and moaned that .......

"They only wanted the government out of their bedrooms and would NEVER push for gay marriage."
I was kind of surprised that is was only 2005. It sure seems like eons ago. But one thing's for sure, the gays were lying through their teeth. And they cannot be trusted in anything they say, ever. We've went from; 'out of the closet to in our face', at Light-speed.

You're right on this Liz - and it's time for all of us to quit thinking of these bullies as victims. It's time for them to grant 'free speech' to those who disagree with THEM... Liberal elites are hypocrites... hateful hypocrites.

When the USSC ruled in 2005 "rear entry buggery" was legal, gays said "They only wanted the government out of their bedrooms and would NEVER push for gay marriage." ....... They were lying through their teeth. And they cannot be trusted in anything they say.......

Another key turning point was when the prestigious Johns Hopkins' (via Dr John Money) removed homosexuality as a psychological disorder. From all we now now---gayness is a sickness that can lead to savagery and visciousness.

You will never get the media to note that most serial killers are gay.
