Skip to comments.Students accuse Chick-fil-A of 'human rights violations,' seek to expel food chain from their campus

A group of New York University (NYU) students are circulating a petition which accuses Chick-fil-A owners of human rights violations over their financial support for non-profit pro-family influence groups.
The document, which so far has attracted just over 15,000 of 20,000 hoped for signatures, also calls for administrators to use a loophole in school rules to expel the popular chicken sandwich store campus.
NYU prides itself on being a diverse, open and inclusive campus community, reads the petition, posted in March by student Hilary Dworkoski. [M]aintaining a contract with an anti-gay vendor like Chick-fil-A undermines what makes this university so great.
View the petition New York University: Stop serving anti-gay Chick-fil-A on campus.
In particular, Dworkoski accused Chick-fil-A of harboring an agenda against anyone," and complains that its owners donated at least $2 million to 2009 to support anti-gay groups including mainstream evangelical groups Focus On The Family and the Family Research Council.

Gays are acting just like Nazis trying to persecute the Jews. Exactly the same mindset and process.
It’s totally amazing the great lengths that people will go to to sell themselves into slavery.
Let’s ask the school’s Muslim Student Association their opinion!
Civil rights violation = support political positions opposite of them. Civil rights violation =Supporting marriage. O brother.
This has to be the public school's doing, that and children's ‘educational’ TV programming. This didnt happen by accident.
And this is exactly why we need to defund Universities. We need to Democratize education and make degrees widely available through on-line classes. We need to financially break these pools of communism and social libertarianism that are collectively known as Universities.
If Gays want to be accepted, they are really hurting their own cause.
NYU???? Is this the best example of anti-Chik-fil-A activism there is??
What do you expect from a leftist, post-modern, PC puppy-mill located in the Center of the Manhattan? I don’t think kids there “learn” anything - they go to be indoctrinated.
Oh, I get it. These liberals want to blacklist Chick-fil-A from their campus just like Joe McCarthy was supposed to have caused the blacklisting of left-wing Hollywood types? The Hollywood blacklisting the liberals abhor; the Christian blacklisting they ADORE!
Oh, and how about the boycott of Jewish owned businesses in Nazi Germany that the liberals like to denounce. That was wrong. But boycotting Christian establishments is OK?
Shouldn’t they ban all students with anti-gay stances?
NYU prides itself on being a diverse, open and inclusive campus community
Soooo they are not so open and inclusive or diverse.
Its not like Chick fil a is killing homos and frying up their parts and pieces...They are simply exercising the same right to support their opinions these idiots are.
And these azzholes are going to be leaders in THIS country???? Really? Be very afraid....
So apparently having an opinion different from liberals is a human rights violation?
Unless that isn’t chicken in their sandwiches, what human rights are Chick-Fil-A denying?
The Left have made up two rights that have never existed in all of history - the right for men to ‘marry’ men, and the right for women to ‘marry’ women - for the purpose of attacking the family and for remaking society in their own image.
The right to Free Speech - otoh - is a real, actual, not-made-up human right and guess what? The Left will not allow it to anyone who disagrees with them.
Talk about lemmings. Do they even know what the CEO said and the context in which he said it?
Didn’t think so.
Yawwwwwwn to the lil’ Idiots.
What if an anti straight restaurant wanted to open? No problem, I would assume.
For a group that comprises about 2.5% of the population, the gays really make a lot of noise. It is unbelievably hypocritical, and typical, for these so called liberals to be so intolerant of other people’s right of free speech and to have their own beliefs on a topic. I love Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwiches and will buy their products whenever I can.
Here comes the Gaystapo (again).
Things could get ugly on Chick Fil-A Appreciation Day. Watch for fag protesters taking cellphone snaps of you & your license plate. Respond in kind, especially if they start prancing & signifying, then upload images & blast.
Went to the Suffolk, VA Chick-Fil-A this a.m. and had their nuggets and a bowl of chicken noodle soup. Good stuff!!!!
Useful idiots. These people are so brainwashed you will never convince them otherwise. My family is like this. No matter what the discussion is, they will always fall back to idiotic, liberal platitudes to support their positions. I give up, I cannot convince them, never will.
GAY Activists are the NEW Nazi’s
I would like that on about 50,000,000 bumper stickers or T-Shirts.
Note the tagline.
I wonder if Ms. Dworkoski buys gasoline made from oil which comes from a Mideast country that kills gays?
They can take all the cell phone and license plate pictures they want....but if they come up to me, I am going to feel threatened.
I had to wait 30 minutes in the drive thru to get my chick-fil-a. Their boycott is killing my lunch hour :-)
No surprise here. NYU is home to the Brennan “Justice” Center. They are a foe of Voter ID and any other legislation that may eliminate or lessen vote and election fraud.
Might tell you a little bit about how "ordinary Germans" came to accept and support the Nazi party during the 1930s.
Human Rights Violation?! Sure, let’s talk about this after they stop their war on normal families with Judeo-Christian values.
Their behavior is wrong. No matter how loud they yell in protest will not make it right.
Gee, what a surprise. Leftist indoctrinated morons exercising their “education” instead of thinking for themselves and considering whether or not Mr. Cathy has exercised his First Amendment rights.
Oh, wait, my bad! Mr, Cathy is obviously a white, heterosexual, conservative male - he HAS no First Amendment rights . . . . . . . those only apply tp leftist morons who haven’t a single original thought in their “skulls full of mush”!
Yeah, that’s about it.
Actually their faggotory practices of grooming, harvesting and preying on boys, and statistically shortening their lifespan, is a real "human rights violation".
Actually, some of the top-level Nazis were hardcore perverts.
A lot of "OLD Nazis" were gay too, Ernst Rohm for one.
Sorry, I used “actually” twice.
Unfortunately NYU isn't much different than universities located elsewhere around the U.S. They all seem dedicated to the same PC indoctrination methods. What continues to amaze me is that conservative parents still fork out huge annual sums to have their kids brainwashed at these "schools." Somehow "the folks" still haven't figured out what's happening.
You can’t choose your family but you can choose FR, and did!
Good timing! (See my post, just above yours.)
(Pinging you to post #36 also!!)
So glad the only reason I’ve ever thought about NYU was for theoretical physics taught by Michio Kaku. Other than that, may they lose millions.
Yep. And how many of them actually read the interview? probably ZERO. How many think Mr. Cathy does things he has not done such as refusing to hire or serve those who call themselves homosexual or lesbian — probably 100% because they are reading the radical gay activists who believe that if you don’t shed your own beliefs for theirs, you dare not exist.
Personal Thoughts and religious beliefs are now forbidden if not politically correct.
It’s probably just a crazy coincidence that the actual Nazis were also heavily penetrated by gays.
I can’t figure out a better way of writing that so I am going to stop.
This whole thing is ridiculous.
It’s sad that gay supporters cannot respect the views of others when they expect everyone else to respect their views.
Mr. Cathy and Chickfila do not say they are ‘anti-gay’ as the media insists.
They simply support traditional values.
Dan Cathy was giving an honest answer to a question that he was asked about his personal beliefs; that Chick-fil-A supports traditional marriage.
He further stated that they treat every person with honor, dignity and respect regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender-
and stated that their intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.
This Company has the same right to BE AGAINST gay marriage, as those who SUPPORT IT. The First Amendment of the Constitution overrides what gay marriage supporters may think or believe.
Those who champion the gay cause are just using this as a way to advance their agenda.
I have the utmost respect for someone who has the character to stand up for what he believes in and still treats EVERYONE with respect, which is what Chickfila does.
Why would ANY heterosexual male protest in defense of faggots? Why all the fuss over 3% of the population? Oh, that’s right.. It all comes down from the top with our gay, Marxist, Muslim illegal alien President!
