Students accuse Chick-fil-A of 'human rights violations,' seek to expel food chain from their campus
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 07/30/2012 10:08:51 AM PDT by oliverdarcy

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.

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.

I say to employers NOT to hire anyone from NYU because they are capable of doing the same thing to you one day!

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?

Hypocrites!

Shouldn’t they ban all students with anti-gay stances?

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.

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.
