Why This Major University Wants To BAN Chick-fil-A From Its Campus

The reason why will disgust you…

A few Kansas University faculty members are not fans of allowing Chick-fil-A to be served on campus because they believe the chain violates “safety and inclusion”.

The faculty council, filled with “extreme frustration,” wants America’s favorite restaurant removed from campus for being a “bastion of bigotry” after KU administrators relocated a Chick-fil-A from a basement to “prime real estate” on campus to the Memorial Union. But worse yet, to the council, is the “Chick-fil-A Coin Toss” at the start of the Jayhawks’ football home games.

“The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels,” the Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a two-page letter, accusing university leaders of being “more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people.”

While the fast-food chain is celebrated for its exceptional customer service, it has come under fire several times after its president and CEO, Dan Cathy, publicly supported traditional marriage in 2012 and opponents have accused Chick-fil-A of being anti-LGBTQ for its charitable giving to the Family Research Council and Salvation Army, to name a few.

The faculty group added: “The arrival of Chick-fil-A in this building is insulting, counterproductive and unacceptable.”

In response, the College Republicans on campus started a petition for students, alumni, and concerned citizens to send to Chancellor Doug Girod.

“Tell our university administration that our community wants Chick-fil-A on this campus,” the conservative group wrote.

Katie Batza, an associate professor of women and gender studies, told the Kansas City Star that hundreds “will boycott or protest” but lamented that the request was “falling on deaf ears.”

Interim Provost Carl Lejuez sent an email to faculty and staff, however.

“Moving forward, I believe it is important to have thoughtful discussion and deliberation when we enter into contracts. In the future, we will do so in a manner that is transparent and informed by our commitment to affirm diversity and to be a welcoming and inclusive campus,” the email said, according to the University Daily Kansas.

    I guess we all know the IQ level of the facility dont we. Can you imagine an individual so stupid and poor at cognitive reasoning they are upset becuase the person that owes chik fil a is openly christian?

    Ok then I am offended that they dont treat the christian religion like other religions. It is bigoted and unfair. So kick those evil facility people off campus

    Notice how the left wants to either ban or silence everything and everyone that thinks different from them…or does not agree with their insanity….wasn’t this the very reason we broke away from the tyranny from England and formed a Constitution and a bill of rights to become a republic of the people and not the Democrat party.

    If you are nothing more than a truly empty sack with no internal character, no conscience, no morality even though you have a teaching job THIS is typical daily action.

    So if your a christian and have a shared believe in doing unto others as we would want them to do unto us. Your a bad person? If you believe marriage is between a man and a woman, and is instrumental in raising good children and subsequently good adults. Better neighbors,stronger friends and is instrumental in sustaining strong moral codes of conduct both within the home and in society in general,your a bad person? If you build a better business,and one that the public supports you a bad person? None of that is relevant if you also don’t believe in the moral code of members in the LBGT&Q communities you will always be a bad person? If that where the case let us all ask these fools where that is written??? Sounds a wee bit smug and self serving on the part of a minority group dictating to the majority that they have somehow become the standard bearer of what is right and what is wrong??? These folks in the “rainbow trenches” should just keep their values for themselves, and the rest of the planet can keeps theirs as well ! Seems fair don’t you think!
