Student Newspaper at Boston U. Wants the School to Kick Out ‘Homophobic’ Chick-fil-A

Student Newspaper at Boston U. Wants the School to Kick Out ‘Homophobic’ Chick-fil-A

“[Chick-Fil-A] has deep-seeded [sic] homophobia.”

This is one of those things that happens on one or two college campuses every year. Now it’s Boston University’s turn to attack Chick-fil-A.

Campus Reform reports:

Boston University student newspaper wants ‘homophobic’ Chick-Fil-A off campus

In a now updated editorial, the editors of Boston University’s student newspaper, The Daily Free Press, called for removing a Chick-Fil-A food truck from near its campus and warned students to “think twice before buying a chicken sandwich from there.”

“[Chick-Fil-A] has deep-seeded [sic] homophobia. [It] has been caught multiple times donating to anti-LGBTQ charities and organizations,” The Daily Free Press wrote, “In 2017, $1.8 million went toward the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Salvation Army and the Paul Anderson Youth Home — all organizations with discriminatory and homophobic practices.”

Campus Reform has covered stories like this before. Ever since it became publicly known that Chick-Fil-A’s president, Dan Cathy, personally opposes gay marriage, the presence of “America’s Favorite Restaurant” on college campuses has become a point of fierce contention. One New Jersey dean even resigned from her post after her university denounced Chick-fil-A’s “corporate values.”

Campus Reform spoke with the dean exclusively in 2019.

Watch the full interview above. St. Mary’s College in Maryland was among the first colleges to ban Chick-Fil-A in 2011 after its Student Government Association (SGA) passed a resolution demanding that it discontinue its “business ties with Chick-Fil-A before the start of the 2011-2012 school year.” The resolution accused Chick-Fil-A of having links to anti-LGBTQ groups.

In 2017, two student senators at Duquesne University said Chick-Fil-A endangered the safety of the LBGTQ community. And in 2018, officials at Rider University in New Jersey vowed never to open Chick-Fil-A even though students chose it as the dining option they wanted most. Rider said the fast-food chain’s beliefs had not “sufficiently progressed.”

What is it that Leftist rant? Oh, yes change the nouns and throw it back at them: “My body, my choice! If you don’t want Chick Fil-A, then you don’t eat Chick Fil-A. But You have no right to interfere in what other people choose to put in their bodies. And how DARE YOU try to block access to Chick Fil-A! That is wrong!”

I guess Chick Fil A’’s call for whites to shine a black man’s shoes doesn’t balance out past perceived sins?

/I’ve been to several Chick Fil-A restaurants throughout the country. Will somone, anyone, tell me what the big deal is?

    It’s really very simple.
    It’s no longer sufficient to be tolerant of choices and lifestyles different from your own – the new moving goalpost standard is you must APPROVE as well.

    Indeed, Chickfilla company policy is no discrimination re: both gay customers and employees. The problem is that the founder is a Southern Baptist type – as shown by CF not doing business on the Sabbath. He believes and follows the literal Word (as he sees it). Which includes “love the sinner” – so he’s not one of those fundies who wants “sinners” to face legal consequences. Or be killed – as fundie Muslims who follow their literal Word do.

    However he falls in the category of folks who don’t believe marriage between gays is identical to traditional marriage. He’s not necessarily against civil unions – in fact in CU states CF gave the same benefits. So when he donates to charities he doesn’t care how they feel about gay marriage as long as they do Good Works. That’s a Fail for the intolerant of only tolerance and not approval Left.

    BTW – his views on the subject were the publicly held views of both political parties (and every president including O) up until polls showed it was safe to either switch and/or stop lying to the rubes.

    So his fault is he believe what he believes without taking a poll first.

One big change is that Chick-fil-A rethought which organisations it sponsors some time back. I believe one of the organisations it now supports is somehow affiliated with all the LGTP stuff and it’s possible none are Christian. (Too long ago now so I can’t recall the details). As a result the community support Chick-fil-A was able to rely on in times past may no longer exist.

Kowtowing to the Left costs you your support, but does not earn you any acceptability.

    Glad to see someone else that remembers the bit about them abandoning their traditional organizations. If so many churches hadn’t gotten on board the Social Justice train in the past few years, this wouldn’t have happened.

    But live by SocJus, die by it.

    I quit going out of my way to eat there when Truet Cathey died; his son started the apology tour.
    I still will take the kids there if we HAVE to grab something out and about, cuz in general, fast food makes us sick, but it is no longer a Let’s go to CFA just cuz we want to.

Didn’t CfA somewhat recently stop donating to those particular organizations? Some leftist in the executive management as I vaguely recall. And didn’t their founder/owner recently hop on board the BLM and White Privilege train?

They earned a ton of goodwill for principled stances in the past, but seem intent on squandering it to appease the unappeasable howler monkeys. They get what they deserve at this point.

    the founder died, and his son is trying to appease the mobs. It won’t work, and it lost them at least one customer that bought to show support. Same reason I shop at Hobby Lobby instead of Michaels or Joanne’s (for craft); same stuff, just if I have a choice, I will support the one with whose values I agree.
