Kansas University Tries to Ban Chick-fil-A from Campus, Calls It a ‘Bastion of Bigotry’

Faculty argues fast food eatery, which embraces conservative Christian values, might impact student 'safety'

A faculty group inside Kansas University appears to be afraid of a chicken sandwich.

That’s the only logical reason this writer can think of for the group’s feverish efforts to keep Chick-fil-A off the campus.

Some faculty members are arguing that Chick-fil-A, which was just voted America’s favorite fast food restaurant, should be banned from the university.

Why? Because the “safety” and “mental well-being” of their students might be affected.

Here’s how Fox News explained the story: “A few Kansas University faculty members are not fans of allowing Chick-fil-A to be served on campus because they believe the chain violates ‘safety and inclusion.'”

“The faculty council, filled with ‘extreme frustration,’ wants America’s favorite restaurant removed from campus for being a ‘bastion of bigotry’ after KU administrators relocated a Chick-fil-A from a basement to ‘prime real estate’ on campus to the Memorial Union.”

“But worse yet, to the council, is the ‘Chick-fil-A Coin Toss’ at the start of the Jayhawks’ football home games.”

“’The culture of Chick-fil-A fosters hate and discrimination on multiple levels,’ the Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council wrote in a two-page letter, accusing university leaders of being ‘more concerned about money and corporate sponsorship than the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of marginalized and LGBTQ people.'”

“While the fast-food chain is celebrated for its exceptional customer service, it has come under fire several times after its founder and CEO, Dan Cathy, publicly supported traditional marriage in 2012 and opponents have accused Chick-fil-A of being anti-LGBTQ for its charitable giving to the Family Research Council and Salvation Army, to name a few.”

Liberals expect others not merely to tolerate and accept their lifestyle choices, they demand that others celebrate their lifestyles — all while they refuse to acknowledge the choices and lifestyles of others.

The school’s College Republicans group began a petition, Fox also noted, for students, alumni, and concerned citizens to send to Chancellor Doug Girod. “‘Tell our university administration that our community wants Chick-fil-A on this campus,’ the conservative group wrote.”

The bottom line is this: Chick-fil-A is not refusing anybody service, nor does it push its views on anyone.

It is a good Christian company that believes what the Bible teaches. Period.

Ultimately, that is the real issue for the Left. Liberals expect others not merely to tolerate and accept their lifestyle choices, they demand that others celebrate their lifestyles — all while they refuse to acknowledge the choices and lifestyles of others.
