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.

Liberals to the rest of the world “free speech, we got it and you dont.”
what unmitigated histrionics!
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.
The defacto mayor exercising her defacto power.
Hello? Is that the Open Minded And Tolerant Left attempting to ban more things and people with which they disagree?
As my mother used to say: “Who died and left you boss of the world?” Diversity? What a joke.
These people are insane.
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.
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.
And don’t forget the Nation of Islam and Rev. Wright from the Church of What’s Happenin’ Now. These are in-your-face anti-Semitic groups who are given a total free pass by the libs, the Jews and the Press.
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”.
1- IF this action is taken, Cathy should sue.
2 - When will NYC close all of the Mosques?
You keep using the word intolerance. I do not think it means what you think it means.
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.
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!
And when the Chick-fil-A whips out its’ 10 year lease, 7 years remaining, what is she going to do ??
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.
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.
OMG, who woulda thunk?
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.
Nothing within fifty miles—or I’d be there in a heartbeat!
So Christine Quinn feels that Chick-fil-A doesnt support her beliefs. That would be the same Christine Quinn who didnt seem to have a problem admitting she sent 17.4 million dollars in taxpayer money to fictitious charities.. Christine Quinn who doesnt 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.
Note; above links are on examiner.com. If you dont like the site dont click the links. Just more information on CFB and NYUs Chick-Fil-A.
OMG is that really her?
Find one near you.
Don’t you love the tolerance of Stalinist commies? This has nothing to do with homosexuality and everything to do with their hatred of capitalism.
Pray for America
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.
That’s about where we are at this juncture, yes.
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.
Thanks for that link, there are more around here than I had thought.
a more flattering pic:
She looks like a lesbian.
Ahe looks like Rosie O’Donnell with Ronald McDonald’s hair.
Hopefully she’ll f up her chances of becoming the next mayor
Yes she does.
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...
Bet your eyes hurt after looking at Change.org...and so sad that my homestate’s MSU is on the list. Shame, shame...
I will DEFINITELY be at Chik Fil A on Wednesday Aug 1! And we usually go thru their drive thru 1/week anyway. We love ‘em, they’ve supported the community, they are a wonderful company. May God Bless them in this time of trials!
Nor does the Chick-Fil-A corporation... so what's your point, b!tch?
WTH?? Are those... teeth?
If these people have such a big problem with Chick-fil-a, maybe they should just go eat a Dick-fil-a and STFU.
I’d love to know what CFA’s sales numbers have been for the last week.
I’ve contributed. Even my dog and cat were treated to some tasty treats from CFA.
I ain’t never seed hair dat color before!
