    Chick-Fil-A Not welcome at College campuses

    Open and inclusive campuses except for .....you Chick Fil-A . Have to love liberals and their inclusive acceptance of others


    "These donations, say NYU freshman Hillary Dworkoski, show that the restaurant is out of sync with her university’s “open and inclusive campus.”

    So, the klan should be welcomed open arms in the spirit of inclusiveness?

    Nothing wrong with college students exercising political power to pressure corporations when those corporations spend money lobbying against the students' belief.

    Isnt that the American way?

    Personally, I don't have a problem with chick fil-a, but I wonder why their shareholders think spending corporate money in that manner is good for the bottomline.

    I'm in favor of gay rights but we're talking about company that donated less than 0.02% of their revenues over the past ten years to charities that (as one part of their larger mission) support a traditional definition of marriage. Chick-fil-A makes a bunch of other, more unquestionably positive donations to charities as well. Doesn't seem like forcing these guys off college campuses is really the best use of time.

    Yeah, but getting in front of a camera, or getting your name in print, is as important as the cause, apparently.

    It is amazing to me that this is happening. If you don't agree with my lifestyle, why should you change to accept me? If I do not agree with your political stance, or ideology, why should you change to please me? If NYU freshman Hillary Dworkoski is so upset about this, then don't go there. Make a statement by not spending your money there. If they aren't making money, they will leave. I loved this statement:
    These donations, say NYU freshman Hillary Dworkoski, show that the restaurant is out of sync with her university’s “open and inclusive campus.”

    “Maintaining a contract with an anti-gay vendor like Chick-fil-A undermines what makes this university so great,” she wrote, in a Change.org petition asking the school to give the fast food chain the boot.

    Dworkoski, a bi-sexual, acknowledges that the Student Senators Council recently voted against removing vendors for “political reasons,” but argues that the school still allows the removal of companies that “violate human or labor rights.”
    So, she admits that this has nothing to do with them accepting her as bisexual. Then she rants about human rights. What about the rights of the people to work there to earn money? I guess that isn't as important as her getting her name out there for everyone to read.

    I wonder what would happen if a popular restaurant chain left because of the bullying of Chick-Fil-A to leave? What would the outrage be then? Or would that restaurant be labelled as a sympathizerto an unpopular cause? Oh, the drama....

    Hmmm, I wonder what the gay shift manager at my local Chick-Fil-A thinks about this.

    They have "chick" in the title. They are obviously ran by sexist right wing men. Boycott em.

    This actually brings up an interesting question...does tolerance mean tolerating what one perceives as intolerance?

    Tolerate perceived intolerance, and you (perhaps rightly) are accused of not standing for any principles.

    Don't tolerate it and you (perhaps rightly) are accused of being a hypocrite.

    Or is there another, more potentially transformative way of coming at it?

    Honest question...I have no preconceived end conclusion that I'm trying to drive toward.

    The answer isn't to push people out by force but to 'defeat' (maybe convert is a better word) them with better ideas.

    Tolerance doesn't necessarily mean acceptance. I can tolerate that my brother is an atheist but that doesn't mean I won't stop praying for him and being the best witness I can be.

    This secular liberal atheist will take all the Chik-Fil-A Ms. Dworkoski doesn't want, then. People have the right to support whatever causes they want... me, I just want one of those chicken biscuits.

    Your brother tried that with you but you won't listen to reason.

    Actually my brother is more intolerant of religion than you are. He takes every opportunity to belittle anyone that express a religious thought.

    I have only been to Chi-Fil-A once because it was right next to the hospital when my father had heart surgery. I got sick of hospital food and needed to get outside for a while. Can't remember the specific chicken sandwich that I got but I remember that it was good but not great. If I would have been impressed I certainly would have been back. My wife always has to go to Inn-N-Out when we are back in California as well. We see no reason to not go to a business just because they openly promote their religion.

    Personally, I love a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and waffle fries. However, when your company supports certain groups that might be viewed as controversial, I'd assume you're prepared for possible backlash.

    Probably so, but I guess I don't remember college students picketing Subway or Wendy's or whatever, maybe they have. Free markets rule!
