March 12, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The fast food chain Chick-Fil-A, which has come under attack in the past for the conservative Christian values of its owners, is now fighting homosexual activists who want to see the restaurant kicked off college campuses across the country.
According to a Baptist Press report, the company has been at the center of controversy on at least nine campuses, including Duke University, Northeastern University, and New York University (NYU).
Students who want to see the restaurant kicked off campus or blocked from coming point to its donations to conservative Christian charities as evidence of its anti-gay agenda. According to IRS documents, WinShape, a charitable foundation funded by the company, funneled about $2 million to groups such as the Marriage & Family Legacy Fund, Focus on the Family, Exodus International, and the Family Research Council in 2009.
These donations, say NYU freshman Hillary Dworkoski, show that the restaurant is out of sync with her universitys open and inclusive campus.
Maintaining a contract with an anti-gay vendor like Chick-fil-A undermines what makes this university so great, she wrote, in a Change.org petition asking the school to give the fast food chain the boot.
Dworkoski, a bi-sexual, acknowledges that the Student Senators Council recently voted against removing vendors for political reasons, but argues that the school still allows the removal of companies that violate human or labor rights.
As Secretary Clinton recently announced, gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights, she writes. As such, I respectfully request that NYU remove Chick-fil-A from campus.
The petition has garnered over 11,000 signatures, and may have been the inspiration for a recent prank in which two men accompanied by a person in a cow costume distributed a fake flier on the schools campus advertising employment opportunities at the restaurant.
The flier warns that applicants should be prepared to discuss your religion, family history, personal relationships etc upon interviewing, and that anyone living in sin need not apply. A Youtube video by the distributors of the fliers shows one man telling bystanders that Chick-Fil-A is offering a special deal where customers can trade in their homosexuality for a free chicken sandwich.
The company fired back against the pranksters last week, writing on its facebook wall that the flier was not created or distributed by any Chick-fil-A Restaurant, and that Chick-fil-A serves all of our customers, team members and potential team members with the utmost honor, dignity and respect.
Dan Cathy, President and COO of Chick-Fil-A, Inc., also responded to the controversy in a statement last month, saying that the company had no agenda against anyone.
At the heart and soul of our company, we are a family business that serves and values all people regardless of their beliefs or opinions, Cathy wrote. While my family and I believe in the Biblical definition of marriage, we love and respect anyone who disagrees. He also said that the company did not champion any political agendas on marriage and family, but would continue to offer resources to strengthen marriages and families.
Dworkowsis petition has not succeeded in removing the company from NYU. School officials told the Huffington Post last week that they did not plan to cancel their contract with Chick-Fil-A.
At Northeastern University in Boston, however, the student senate voted last week to block the restaurant from coming to campus because of the controversy. The company was also successfully ousted last year from Indiana University, where it sold food once a week.
Our three daughters got their first jobs at Chick-Fil-A. The first two went through the whole interview and training program. When their little sister came of age, they hired her without an interview based on how her older sisters performed. Weekend dates for the Mrs. and I generally consisted of a meal at Chick-Fil-A to be served by the girls. We still go back often.
Because they do not truly value "tolerance", nor do they seek it. Instead, they demand your approval and treat any delay in satisfying their wants as a personal affront.
Could it be that the plumbing under the burqua isn't always the type of plumbing one would normally expect on a female?
After dropping Football this was only the natural next step for Northeastern.
I can tolerate you but don't demand that I accept your filthy anal love affair with your buddy as normal.
Far from reflecting and transmitting the rich values of the Western culture that once gave them birth and life, our academies today promote the very opposites of those values. They choose to wallow in childish solipsism rather than seek, or even acknowledge universal truth.
And worse: they promote enforced conformity in place of self-ordered liberty, gleeful self-abasement in lieu of humble morality, a spirit of hatred and not of love, and finally: a worship of death in place of a life God has blessed us with, thus denying the reality of both.
um... no. Not at all like that.
Here’s my take on the education racket:
Offer unlimited subsidized student loans
Allowing schools to charge outrageous tuition
Allowing schools to pay massive salaries to liberal faculty/admins
Faculty/admins donate to Democrats
The communist have achieved most of their goals.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
That’s about it. Government creates artificial demand for a service (post-secondary education), which in turn drives up costs and reduces quality, and results in a dependency relationship between colleges and government (via the taxpayer). Viewed in that light, universities are a natural home for both welfare state-fascists and communists, many of whom could not hold down a job in the private sector.
Hmmm...Looks like Chik-Fil-A for lunch!
I think Chik-Fil-A should be sanctioned by being forced to be closed on Sundays.
One of the great lies of the 20th Century was the idea that the motive for seeking to make society more "open & inclusive" was toleration. It never was--although some people got duped into supporting it to demonstrate their own tolerance. The motive of the leadership was to undermine the cohesion of traditional society. In "diversity"--taken to the inevitable conclusion--there is social chaos, leading to the destruction of the social order under attack.
They are in the process of deciding on whether or not to pass an anti-discrimination (against homosexuals) law in Omaha, by the city council. At one of the open hearings, a woman (presumably lesbian,) talked about how she should not have to go to a workplace and see family pictures, pictures of spouses and kids, on all of her co-workers’ desks, because it makes her feel “left out” and “different”. I foresee the next demand being that anything that hints at normalcy or heterosexuality will be banned so it does not make people “feel bad”.
If some deviant has a problem with this place, I suggest they depart and let the rest of us enjoy it.
Great Desserts—and don’t forget their lemon pie!
The queers make noise way out of proportion to their numbers, due to the pro-homo propaganda in the schools.
Three guesses... No, one.
My wife and kids do eat chicken but I don't know of a Chic-Fil-A anywhere near us here in central Illinois. If I learn of one, I'll ask them to give them a try.
I read an article about the owner in Forbes, they referred to him as a "devout Baptist"- made me feel sort of special, since I'm Baptist too and it stated that he refused to let his restaurants open on Sunday so his employees could go to church if they wanted to, the article also said how many millions he was losing by not opening on Sunday. Of course Forbes uses a different accounting system than God does.
Unfortunately these sodomites have willing and ignorant allies in Washington, DC who believe they should be treated as normal. These morons would hand over the minds of our children to these monsters!
What the complicit media won’t tell Americans is that the large majority of serial killers were homosexuals.
Homosexuality is a disease that begins with sexual experiments in childhood that extend into adulthood.
