University of Notre Dame Students and Faculty Petition to Keep Chick-fil-A Off Campus

University of Notre Dame Students and Faculty Petition to Keep Chick-fil-A Off Campus

“Our first concern relates to Chick-fil-A’s long history of antagonism toward the LGBTQ+ community.”

Notre Dame is a Catholic school. If these students and faculty members feel this way, why are they at Notre Dame?

Campus Reform reports:

Notre Dame students, faculty are trying to keep Chick-fil-A off campus

Over 180 University of Notre Dame students and faculty have signed an open letter opposing the addition of a Chick-Fil-A on campus.

“While a large portion of the student body would approve of this decision, we hope to show that many of us oppose the addition of Chick-fil-A,” the open letter states.

Notre Dame’s campus dining had released a statement on Instagram stating that the school’s updated dining plans are not finalized and are considering a “variety of future restaurant options, including Chick-fil-A.”

On July 1, two Notre Dame undergraduates published an op-ed in the school’s student newspaper, The Observer, arguing that Chick-fil-A should not be on campus. The students state that they have “serious ethical concerns” about the company and that a different restaurant would better fit the Catholic university’s mission.

“Our first concern relates to Chick-fil-A’s long history of antagonism toward the LGBTQ+ community. Over the past two decades, Chick-fil-A has donated significant sums to groups that oppose LGBTQ+ rights. From 2003 to 2012, the restaurant’s charitable arm gave over $5 million to queerphobic groups, including groups supporting conversion therapy. Despite public outcry and promises to halt anti-LGBTQ+ donations, in 2017, the donations to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations resumed, including the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the Paul Anderson Youth Home, and the Salvation Army,” the op-ed states.

The students raised further concerns regarding Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s Christian faith and personal opposition to same-sex marriage, citing his leadership as “regressive.”

“Our first concern relates to Chick-fil-A’s long history of antagonism toward the LGBTQ+ community”

This is a lie. Chick-fil-a has shown no such antagonism. But “activists” routinely use dishonest smear to justify their own aggression. That’s not what they should be learning in college.

No where has anyone pointed to a single example of CFA turning down any gay or lesbian for service or employment. Dan Cathey’s contributions happen to be to organizations whose views on human sexuality and the nature of marriage comport with those of the Catholic Church.

“Over 180 University of Notre Dame students and faculty have signed an open letter opposing the addition of a Chick-Fil-A on campus.”
This is a joke, right?
180+ students and faculty out of 8,617 undergraduates – that’s what I’d call “an overwhelming majority”😉🤣

A Catholic parent sending their kid to Notre Dame is akin to a cattle rancher hiring a board member of PETA to be a nanny for their kid.
