Homosexual activists demand removal of Chick-Fil-A from college campuses
LifeSiteNews ^ | March 12, 2012 | Christine Dhanagom

Posted on 03/12/2012 8:11:52 PM PDT by Engraved-on-His-hands

The fast food chain Chick-Fil-A, which has come under attack in the past for the conservative Christian values of its owners, is now fighting homosexual activists who want to see the restaurant kicked off college campuses across the country.

According to a Baptist Press report, the company has been at the center of controversy on at least nine campuses, including Duke University, Northeastern University, and New York University (NYU).

Students who want to see the restaurant kicked off campus or blocked from coming point to its donations to conservative Christian charities as evidence of its “anti-gay” agenda. According to IRS documents, WinShape, a charitable foundation funded by the company, funneled about $2 million to groups such as the Marriage & Family Legacy Fund, Focus on the Family, Exodus International, and the Family Research Council in 2009.

These donations, say NYU freshman Hillary Dworkoski, show that the restaurant is out of sync with her university’s “open and inclusive campus.”

“Maintaining a contract with an anti-gay vendor like Chick-fil-A undermines what makes this university so great,” she wrote, in a Change.org petition asking the school to give the fast food chain the boot.

“Now let see if I have this (ahem) straight. Gay activists want to replace Chik-fil-A with Richard-fil-A?”

We have a Chick Fil A right here in the middle of libtard Hollywood. The liberal morons don’t seem to mind as it’s always packed.

Allow me to correct your minor error in the above.

There are NO, repeat NO gay activists on that campus. The soi dissant “gay activists” are hired demonstrators for the Beef Cattle Union, those fine beings who supported the “Eat More Chicken” ads.

PS One does Not want to know what real “gay activists” prefer to eat.

I knew there was a reason I liked Chik-fill-a. We don't have one near us so when we were traveling we decided we'd try it out. Yum! Clean, good food, you can actually find a healthy choice, and the people working were very nice.

Eat more Chickin!

They want to expel a restaurant from the campus because its founder disagees with their political agenda, then they say it’s in order to keep the campus open and inclusive. If that’s not a total contradiction, I don’t know what is.

I ove Chik-fil-a. It sells a good product. The company encourages family and family values. The company gives back to the community. They pay a decent wage. Tell the elitist self entitled college brats to go get a real job and then we will talk

If the colleges/universities are “ open and inclusive “ then it makes sense to welcome the chicken business to campus... e.g. Aren’t Christians people too? ... shrug !

American teenagers at our stores here in the Denver area too. I thought no American teenager wanted to work anymore. Unlike McDonald’s and elsewhere, I don’t think they hire illegals. I haven’t seen any so far and we live in illegal central.

Ok, then, that’s the question to ask:

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
How about kicking homosexuals off campus for being anti-Christian? Both sets of ousters have federal law on their side. In a short time there will be nobody left on campus.

Don’t worry; the Muslims that will resolve this problem are arriving by the planeloads daily, and are probably all over the campuses already.

And they support the local Christian school’s “Power Cards”.

I got two different school power cards in my wallet and Chic-Fil-A is on both of them.

Get a free chicken sandwich for buying the # 1 meal.

Cows advising people to eat mo chicken is fun and good advertising.The fast food provided by Chic-Fil-A fits well with the lifestyle of the college crowd.There is just something fundamentally wrong with some Reprobate claiming the business associates of Chick-Fil-A —and not the food service provided—ought disqualify Chick-Fil-A from College Campuses. ONLY a MORON -or someone advancing the Gay Agenda would be blind to the fact that when one calls for exclusion of a group they cannot promote Open and inclusion by excluding. These same Reprobate domestic terrorists insist Christian groups may not exclude infidels and atheists.Why should the unbelievers be allowed to exclude Christians?

What is truly sad is that Ms. Dworkoski has made it to college and yet doesn't realize how hypocritical her statement is. Open and inclusive means all views, not just the ones you hold near & dear.

What's even sadder is her professors don't realize how hypocritical that view is either.

Homos are funny.

They attempted to engineer their “boycott” of Chik-Fil-A a couple years ago, and the result? A far-more family-friendly location... always full of customers... a great place to go at lunchtime or after work.

Does anyone from around Chicago remember the “Taste of Chicago” and the “Thank You Jesse Jackson” t-shirts? This sounds like a similar situation.

I’m so tired of these people and not sure how much longer I can go on living near and around them and the kind of people who advocate for them.

Am learning in my NP assessment courses now the sort of damage that men do to their rectal areas and prostate by participating in anal sex. It’s really, really a disgusting and disordered practice.

It’s not what our rectums were made for, really. Why we are constantly sold this as “normal” and natural ...it’s just beyond me. It’s NOT. It is filthy, literally and figuratively.

I’m at the point where I just pity them if they are compelled to do this, if their attractions are so strong. However, I am NOT going to “fight” for their right to do it. It’s not something to fight for — it’s something to pity or hopefully, just something a person can, with great prayer and strength, learn to avoid doing.

Remember this - it’s not the homos who are the problem, it’s the anti-Christians using “homosexual rights” as a weapon against Christians who are the problem.

The goal is to get Christian values outlawed.

I’m not so sure about this scenario.

A Dem all-out attack on the LDS Church will expose the soft and ugly underside of the Democrat party to the voters in this country, who do not take kindly to attacks on religion.

It also opens up the obvious, that if they attack one religion (well two so far, counting Catholics who have been viciously attacked by this administration) where will they stop?

Members of all religions would be wondering if their religious belief is the next one to be attacked.

Basing a campaign on religious attacks doesn’t work very well in this country. Yet.

If I am wrong, we may as well give up hope.
