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.

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!
Poor delusional soul!
You should see her wife!
You should see her wife
I’d say they truly are made for each other.
Christine Quinn, I denigrate you!
Of course these proper little fascists would never consider simply not buying chikin sammiches ....
the one that wears a tailored Lauren tux down the aisle is the husband
Note that both had their fathers “give them away”
Sorry 'bout that. Seems I'm not as up on homo marriage etiquette as some FReepers, but then I guess neither is the Times.
Some secrets remain: the brides have not said what they will wear or where they will go on their honeymoon next week.
isnt that a civil rights violation
