Students are seeking to have the chain removed from the university's College Park campus.
Some 850 people have signed onto a petition seeking to bar Chick-Fil-A from the University of Maryland's College Park campus, the Washington Blade reports.

LOL, check out that rainbow logo?
Sounds like a job for the Young College Republicans.
To the rescue... away...
Sadly there are more than 850 morons at UMd.
I hope some enterprising student starts a counter-petition, petitioning the university to keep Chick-Fil-A on campus.
And how many sales do they make in 1 day? I’m guessing at 1600.
baby temper tantrums because a guy thinks turd pokers should not have special rights.
I wish these idiots would start using their brains if they have them and stopped being either ignorant or using emotion because their friend likes his turds being pushed the sick F’s
There was a running back that signed with Auburn over Clemson because Clemson did not have a Chick-Fil-A.
How can future generations enjoy the freedoms generations have fought and died for, if they have no concept of the meaning of the Bill of Rights' protections for freedom of speech and freedom of religion and free exercise?
Just hope there are enough citizens out there who understand what's at stake in 2012.
We have the same choice which faced the colonists in 1776:
Liberty for ourselves and future generations
Slavery to coercive government power
This is the choice.
So-called "progressives" may frame the debate differently, they may use clever semantics to disguise and cloak the kind of "change" they advocate, and some may even fool themselves into believing that what they advocate is right.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C. S. Lewis
In the end, however, their philosophy relies on coercive power by some imperfect human beings over other likewise imperfect beings.
The ideas of 1776 and 1787 were based on another powerful idea.
The same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe, the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.- (John F. Kennedy - 1961 Inaugural)
"Ideas have consequences." - Weaver
One idea led to freedom, opportunity, productivity and plenty for more people than ever had been experienced in the history of civilization. That idea relied upon a Creator-people-government arrangement.
The "other" idea has failed in every society in which it has been implemented, because it relies on a government-over-people arrangement.
"Tyranny is a poor provider. It knows neither how to accumulate, nor how to extract." -Edmund Burke
I think there were 850 people in line at the Chik-fil-a here at BSU on this, the first day of class!
Auburn has 4 Chick-fil-A stores IIRC. LOL!
That leaves 36,250 enrolled students who did not sign the petition.
The 850 can go screw themselves... oops, they already are.
As an alternative, they could just stay away from Chick-fil-a and leave everybody else alone.
Well said, lover of liberty. ;-) We need to get on a whole different track; the America we live in now is not what the founders had in mind at all.
Parents should transfer their students to a more tolerant university...
The University of Maryland has almost 38,000 students. Even assuming these signatures are legitimate(they probably are not) this is a very small group. You could get 850 college students to sign almost anything.
Good sleuthing, and I hope CFA remains on campus.
Those who support homosexuals are against our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ.
These anti Christ people only bring destruction on us ALL.
I have NO sympathy for homosexuals!
Homosexuality is a "Mark" of disobedience.
Typical Leftist Brownshirts. They can’t organize a boycott to get people to simply not eat there, so they petition to get it kicked off campus.
Bottom line: if its popular, it should remain. If people hate its political positions and stop eating there, it will go away.
Homosexuals and their sycophants denying others their rights!
Homosexuality is the disease that is even worse than islamic terror!
