NYC City Council Speaker Christine Quinn Asks NYU President to Kick Chick-fil-A Off its Campus
Towelroad ^ | July 28 2012 | A. Towleroad

Posted on 07/30/2012 5:21:09 AM PDT by scottjewell

NYC City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is urging New York University, which rents space to the city's only Chick-fil-A restaurant, to kick the franchise off its campus because of its support for anti-gay causes.

Says Quinn, in part, in a letter sent today to NYU President John Sexton:

NYC is a place where we celebrate diversity. We do not believe in denigrating others...As you know from recent press coverage, the President of Chick-fil-A continues to make statements and support causes that are clear messages of extreme intolerance and homophobia and a belief that LGBT Americans are less than others and deserve to be treated as such.

Let me be clear -- I do not want establishments in my city that hold such discriminatory views.

I urge you to sever your relationship with the Chick-fil-A establishment that exists on your campus. This establishment should be replaced with an establishment where the ownership does not denigrate a portion of our population.

Are they going to kick the Moslems off campus, too?

After all, Mohamhead taught that homos should be put to death.

A good reason for a university to be free of public money. Imagine this request going to a college like Hillsdale.

According to Change.org, students at the University of North Texas, the University of New Orleans, Mississippi State University, Gainesville State College, Indiana University and Texas Tech University have all launched petitions calling for the removal of a Chick Fil A location.

"NYC City Council Speaker Christine Quinn is" a filthy little Fascist Pig.

Much better article now.

Next thing on her agenda is probably circumcision ~

There’s always somebody wanting to get something off campus. IU Women would be much better off banning STDs I”ll tell you, particularly the Leftwingtardettes!

:-) 'Tis exactly what it would be, a request.

Lib: "I request that you kick Chick-fil-a off your campus."

Private School: "I like to eat there. Go hug a tree."

And that, as they say, would be that. Unfortunately with NYU, when someone else pays the piper, they get to call the tune.

I think it is a good thing that this has all come out in the open. As posted above, there are numerous colleges and Universities around the nation now launching petitions on change.org to have their campus Chick-Fil-As removed.

What is this but an unmasking of their real goal and real deepest agenda?

As I said, it is a good thing this Chick-Fil-A incident has come about, because it has made things clear now, quite clear.

CFA should move all their stores from liberal campuses. I know CFA helps a lot of colleges with free food for events. Let people (probably mostly students) lose their jobs. Who cares? CFA will do fine without the left. I would bet their sales have gone up considerably since the idiots started this war.

I really don’t like liberals. At all.

This is how socialism works folks, a liberal is
elected to a minor public office then uses her
position to expound and demand action on something
that doesn’t concern her but furthers the socialist
agenda, all in the name of the “People”.

The establishment does not have a view, it is an establishment.

The OWNER of the corporation has a view and a right to express it.

"According to Change.org"

Of course, the gay mafia is in high dunning, again, over some preceived insult when nothing of the kind occurred.

IMO, this flare-up, like the attempts to get Rush off the radio will end no where. The people that do this are professional agitators.

The only good that will come out of it is that it will expose the scumbag politicians that would use their position to impose a rigid orthodoxy on us all.

Emanuel/Menino/Quinn--your slip is showing!

Conservatives don’t call for the gay promoting JC Penney to be kicked out of malls and other places. Disagree by not giving them your business. Dan Cathy just expressed his opinion. The gay gestapo and cronies are control, tyrant freaks destined for the eternal chaff they choose.

because of its support for anti-gay causes

They keep spouting this LIE, but there is not one, single molecule of evidence to back it up.

The man was stating his and his family's OPINION on the subject, and the progressives will bankrupt him for it.

I can’t help but notice that pretty much all of the clowns condemning Chick-Fil-A are straight, self-styled LGBT “allies.” All the gay people I know seem determined not to let religion and politics get between them and a good sandwich.

Guess that means gay people are a bunch of homophobes.

So Christine Quinn feels that Chick-fil-A doesn’t support her beliefs. That would be the same Christine Quinn who didn’t seem to have a problem admitting she sent 17.4 million dollars in taxpayer money to fictitious charities.. Christine Quinn who doesn’t have a problem using CFB tax dollars to help get her reelected. Yes that Christine Quinn is outraged that someone would hold views that differ from her own.

Advice to straight HS seniors: If the school doesn’t have a Chick-fil-A restaurant consider about going to a different school that does.

Just think about that for awhile.

Do Leftists know how ridiculous they are? These champions of “free speech” deny it to anyone who disagrees with them. Their vicious anti-Chrisian hate speech is to be promoted by every institution in the nation, or they throw a hissy-fit.

They are weighed in the balances and are found wanting.

NYC is a place where we celebrate diversity.

LOL - only if 'diversity' is defined as 'lockstep adherence to liberal beliefs'. Face it, gays aren't even tolerant enough to allow someone to believe in traditional marriage - closed minded little bigots...
