“The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels.”
The faculty at the University of Kansas has asked Chancellor Doug Girod to boot delicious Chick-fil-A from campus. The outrage comes after the school gave the magnificent fast-food restaurant a prime location in the student union. From The Kansas City Star (emphasis mine):
“KU granted Chick-fil-A, a bastion of bigotry, a prime retail location in the heart of our campus,” KU’s Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council said in a letter sent this week to Chancellor Doug Girod, the provost’s office and the athletic department.
“Moving Chick-fil-A to the Union and granting it a role at the start of all home football games violates the feelings of safety and inclusion that so many of us have striven to create, foster, and protect on campus, and sends a message that the Union, KU Athletics, and the administration at large are more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well being of marginalized and LGBTQ people.”
The council objects to the university relationship with Chick-fil-A because of the owner’s “history of supporting organizations that are hostile to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people, families, and communities,” the letter said.
“The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels. In short, Chick-fil-A on KU’s campus stands in direct contrast to the university’s mission of fostering a multicultural, inclusive environment.”
What. In. Tarnation.
A bastion of bigotry. If the presence of a fast-food place hurts your feelings, you need to grow up.
The faculty and students have tried for years to force the university to sever ties with Chick-fil-A. But in 2014, the university extended the contract until 2024.
The students and faculty complained the University of Kansas had put profit over concerns of those at the school. Chick-fil-A leases space within the school for $60,000 a year.
Did these people ever think that Chick-fil-A receives such prominence because it produces heavenly food with excellent service? You know, it sticks around because people enjoy the food? EVEN GAY PEOPLE.
This company that supposedly fosters hate and discrimination has done a lot for its communities. Just because it does not actively support or campaign for gay rights does not mean it discriminates against you.
I want these people to find me ONE time a Chick-fil-A restaurant discriminated against a gay person.
I mean, look at this hateful company! You know the chicken sandwich war erupted this past week. Well, in Greensboro, NC, a Chick-fil-A employee saw stressed out Popeyes employees run out of its new chicken sandwiches.
The hateful man gave the employees and some customers free sandwiches!! It turns out he has been friends with the Popeyes employees for a long time. They usually have breakfast at Chick-fil-A but haven’t been able to catch a break due to the demand for their sandwich.
A Chick-fil-A manager in Maryland rushed out to help a WWII veteran change his tire. The 96-year-old man came to the counter in tears, and Daryl Howard happily helped.
In Mississippi, a homeless man went to the counter at a Chick-fil-A with only $5. The woman behind the counter told the man that breakfast was on her and took his order.
Such an evil and depraved company!
