A new Chick-Fil-A restaurant on the UTPA campus in Edinburg was greeted by protestors on the first day of classes.
Students and staff all clamored to buy meals from the new restaurant early Monday afternoon.
But a small group of protestors has stationed themselves outside restaurant.
The UTPA Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Alliance is circulating a petition to have the school close the Chick-Fil-A.
Working from behind a security fence, the group collected signatures from supporters.
Chick-Fil-A president Dan Cathy recently set off a firestorm of controversy and created a national debate about gay rights.
Cathy confirmed more than $3 million in contributions conservation and anti-gay groups such as the Family Research Council.
Chick-Fil-A, which is closed on Sundays, has always maintained itself as a Christian business.
In a previous statement, UTPA officials said the school was surprised and disappointed by the comments made by Chick-fil-As president, and that it opposes discrimination in any form."
LOL Got that right, seriously though they actually think sepcial rights shoudl be given on how they like their sex
I thought it was: University of Texas - Port Arthur. :(
Or the University of Texas - Pennsylvania.
It looks that a whole 9 protesters showed up compared to hundreds of customers.
done but I;ve just read another thread where 850 students signed to get CFA out and one freeper actually wants us to sign it with silly names.
[sigh and rolls eyes] it doesn’t matter what name we put it matters how many sign the stupid thing and now we have freepers wanting us to sign it.
no frigging wonder we are losing this war AARRGGHH

It is basically in Mexico. Rio Grande Valley.

FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list.
And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin’, if I miss them.
(looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
Do you think UTPA should cancel the contract to open a Chick-Fil-A restaurant on campus?
Can’t by those trying to sell me a car.Page ain’t loading
My husband and I ate at Chik-Fil-A on Saturday at the Mall and then went to see “2016”. There were lines to get to the chicken sandwiches - unlike any of the other food outlets. It was the first time my husband had Chik Fil-A and he liked it.
So far, it would appear that the sensible element in our society is winning this one.

82 to 16 No. Wonder how many times we have to say this before they get it?
@Forrestfire- It’s in the Valley (Texas); between McAllen &&& I’m not sure. There’s a whole string of towns going west from Mc. Rio Grande City is in there A very pleasant area (good road, fairly clean) about 12 years ago. DH had a claim at one of the colleges there. I’m not sure if it was this one.
