An online petition calling for the removal of Chick-fil-A from the Marshall Student Center (MSC) has received considerable feedback both support and backlash - from the USF community.
Though only a little over 100 signatures have been added to the petition on Change.org since last week (the petition had 771 signatures as of Wednesday night), it has received strong reactions.
Scott Ferguson, an assistant professor in the Department of Humanities and Cultural Studies, created the petition.
As news of the petitions existence has spread, he said he received negative feedback including bigoted emails from other USF professors, negative messages to his personal cell phone and a hate fax from a number he said he thinks is from within the university.
Of course a USF professor would do this, Jonathan Vasquez wrote on The Oracles Facebook page. This is ridiculous. Its the most affordable option on campus; why would he try to take that away from students simply because he doesnt agree with the CEO?
Though cheap chicken was most important to many students, some felt that Chick-fil-A also has the right to operate under whatever values they want.
So USF should ban anyone who doesnt meet their definition of diversity? Stewart Collins wrote on The Oracles Facebook page. You start banning a company or group because they have a set of values (mind you they havent discriminated anyone because of their sexual orientation) and you open Pandoras Box. If you dont agree with Chick-fil-A, dont go there....

The most apalling part of this is that the petition was started by a “professor”...which in the liberal arts means, “I couldn’t get a job in a McDonalds if my life depended on it, so I took up teaching liberal arts.”
What a maroon.
This idiot should be drummed out of any real university.
Scott Ferguson, no doubt a homosexual with too much time on his hands, should be given extra hours of work in the student cafeteria to earn his paycheck.
Another “Studies” Professor. Go figure.
I wonder how “diverse” their “minority clubs” are in their membership...
a “-studies” degree today is worth what a high school diploma was worth 40 years ago.
As opposed to the love-filled, inclusive, and tolerant petition.
Anything negative is instantly re-translated by the left into “bigotted” and “hate”.

Thanks for that contact info ;-)
There is a need for a good old fashioned tar an feathering in South Florida.
What the Fluke is a USF?
Oh yeah, a loser school.
Not if he's got his hands on "too much time".
Started by an idiot “teacher” that couldn’t get a job at a fast food joint.
40 years ago you could get a job with a high school diploma.
Start an on campus petition to remove Scott Ferguson from campus and see if it gets more than 771 signatures.
