Youngstown State Prof Calls Chick-fil-A ‘Fried Food For Homophobes’

“adds to the negative experience of LGBT students.”

Chick-fil-A has become a target for leftists at Youngstown State. One professor joined the chorus with an insulting comment.

The Daily Caller reports:

Professor Labels Chick-fil-A ‘Fried Food For Homophobes’

A petition from wants the Chick-fil-A restaurant at Youngstown State University (YSU) shut down, claiming that all that “homophobic” chicken just “adds to the negative experience of LGBT students.”

As Campus Reform reports, the petition has support among faculty, with one professor calling the fast-food establishment “fried food for homophobes.”

“I am a professor at YSU. I have not set foot up there since they became Chick-fil-A. A long time ago it used to be a respectable place where you could take an invited speaker out to lunch and even have table service. We now have no such place and I will not support Fried Food for Homophobes, which is what I think of Chick-fil-A,” said Heather Lorimer, an associate professor in genetics at YSU.

“Chick-fil-a is well known for its CEO’s bigotry,” Lorimer told Campus Reform. “Since it has been Chick-fil-A I have not set a foot in it.”

The petition strongly objects to Chick-fil-A being “the only place to get food in the evenings” on campus and won’t accept any apologies from the restaurant for past statements because the it “still donating money to anti-LGBT organizations.”

Most so-called (as a slur) “homophobes” actually aren’t as such. The problem is that the current Left takes the stance that “That which is not banned is manditory”. There is no middle ground, in theiworld-view, between attacking someone physically/legally and withholding approval. Southern Baptists also withhold approval of adultery, so logically they violate the civil rights of adulterers, right?

Chick-a-fil doesn’t promote or approve of homosexual acts, but they don’t have a problem with either customers or employees who are gay – they don’t descriminate. They just don’t farking decide to rconform their beliefs to whatever they current fashion is. They take the exact same stance both the Clinton’s and Obama took prior to 2012, only difference they do it on princple rather than on poll numbers.

So what aren’t Dem leaders “bigots” too? Double Stanard much, Lefties?

and won’t accept any apologies from the restaurant for past statements

Why, was somebody dumb enough to offer “any apologies”?

Even here in the middle of Liberal Suckassland (also commonly known as Massachusetts), the Chick-fil-As seem to be packed with paying customers. Whatever the company is doing doesn’t seem to be hurting it much.

    The one out on the highway near me has cars wrapped around the store ALL DAY.

    Those protests and boycotts are sure killing business!

    The CBS and NBC local stations went down to laugh at the grand opening of the first NY (NYC) one.Expecting protesters and a few cowed potential customers. The line was two blocks long. They cut the camera to studio in 20 seconds. They had never seen so many Christians, Muslims and Hindus so cheerfully together ever. This was right after the kerfuffle.
    It remains the top or second most popular fast food choice at large American universities.

      Our Chick-fil-A had been open about a year when the kerfuffle took place. It was doing OK, but it wasn’t terribly busy. Since then it is packed all the time with cars around the building and down the street waiting in the Drive-up line most of the day.

So Bill Maher and Colbert eat at this place?

I always look for Chick-fil-a when I need a fast food meal at a conference. Good food, reasonable prices, very competent and cheerful staff. What’s not to like?

Chick-fil-a is the only place I know of that does sugar-free lemonade. How awesome is that?
