Pittsburgh, PA - A proposed Chick-Fil-A at Duquesne University has ruffled feathers of some campus groups.
According to Fox News, Lambda, a gay student group at the University, has expressed concern that Chick-Fil-A's presence could jeopardize the school's safe spaces. Lambda executive board member Niko Martini said that “Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights."
Martini has asked student government leaders to pass a resolution urging school officials to reconsider Chick-Fil-A as a dining option for students at the Catholic school.
The student government association has not passed a resolution either way as of yet, and perhaps that's because the University chose Chick-Fil-A at the request of students.
Duquesne President Olivia Erickson said that she would look into Lambda's concerns, gather opinions, and get facts, so that the best decision can be made.
Chick-Fil-A is a family-owned Christian business, known for being close on Sunday. It's not clear what "human rights" they violate, or if Martini even knows what those words means.
Chick-Fil-A supports law enforcement. When officers have been killed in the line of duty, Chick-Fil-A has, on numerous occasions, set up a "missing man" table with a picture of the fallen hero.
The perpetually offended snowflakes seem to always find something wrong. The majority of Duquesne students asked for this restaurant.
If you don't want to eat Chick-Fil-A, then don't. It's simple. Go find your safe place somewhere else.
In a statement, the Lambda president said that it would be nice if someone could reassure them and the LGBT community that their fears are not being 'marginalized' by having the business on campus.
Perhaps Todd Starnes from Fox News said it best: "Eat More Chicken, Snowflakes."
Do you think that trying to block Chick-Fil-A makes any sense? We'd like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the comments.
