Collegians unite: Occupy Chick-fil-A…

 

As The Motley Monk predicted back in February, it wouldn’t be all that long before the anti-Chick-fil-A forces (aka, “Occupy Chick-fil-A”) would amass on the nation’s college campuses and throw tantrums.  Their goal would be to force weak-willed administrators to cower to Occupy Chick-fil-A and its members’ demands that they remove the fast food chain from their campuses because of the company’s bigoted, non-inclusive, and anti-homosexual policies.

It doesn’t matter whether the allegations are true or not.  What does matter for Occupy Chick-fil-A members is that they feel the company is all of those things…and more.

It was at Northeastern University where Occupy Chick-fil-A leader bleated in delight:

I’m very excited and really, really surprised this is the decision [the NU’s  administration] came to. We didn’t expect them to cut the contract with  Chick-fil-A.

As the new academic year is set to unfold, Occupy Chick-fil-A forces are amassing at the University of Maryland, agitating for the institution to close its owner-operated store.  According to the the Baltimore Sun, Occupy Chick-fil-A forces have posted an online petition demanding that the University shut down its store in the Stamp Student Union Building.

Why?

Dan Cathy
Chick-fil-A President

 

When asked in an interview with the Baptist Press about reports that the Chick-fil-A corporation is opposed to homosexual marriage, the President of Chick-fil-A, Dan Cathy, responded, “Well, guilty as charged.”  He added:

We are very much supportive of the family—the biblical definition of the family unit…We intend to stay the course. We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles.

 

Feeling outrage upon hearing of Cathy’s remarks, Occupy Chick-fil-A forces at the University of Maryland are demanding a “more accepting” option, the Baltimore Sun article states.

As one who enjoys Chick-fil-A’s products and tried to participate in Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day but couldn’t get near the local owner-operated store, The Motley Monk would have thought Occupy Chick-fil-A forces would be more upset that the fast food chain’s on-campus stores are closed on the Sabbath.

Sabbath?

What Sabbath?

  • I hope all parents refuse to send their children to Northeastern University. It is time to place all of our money where our freedoms are.

  • Another asylum run by inmates.

  • I see. They are promoting inclusion by practicing exclusion. On that note, I suggest they ban kosher and halal food, because the people who prepare and consume it also do not believe in same-sex marriage. That would make their university extra inclusive.

  • While I completely disagree with the substance of the students’ position, at least this is somewhat better than a government official using his governmental position to ban it outright on his own. Of course, the more they keep CFA in the spotlight, the more I crave it. Could this be some super-double-secret marketing ploy?

    I think I’ll have me some Chik-Fil-A.

  • Hmm….I wonder what the ratio is of physics/chemistry/biology to political science/marketing/women’s studies majors amongst the occupiers? My guess is the underchallenged have a little more time on their hands. The poli-scis might even be getting course credit for this.
