Students Try to Ban Chick-fil-A — University Says It's Not Happening


When will people give up on trying to get rid of delicious Chick-fil-A?

The student government at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas voted unanimously to remove the best fast-food chain in the whole wide world from their campus because — you guessed it — the restaurant is supposedly “homophobic.”

As Campus Reform reports, the students took issue with the chain’s donations to the Salvation Army, the Paul Anderson Youth Home, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

In their resolution to the university, they state: 

Trinity is a university that emphasizes its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Having Chick-fil-a in the rotation at Revolve conflicts with those values. Trinity’s values of diversity and inclusion and Chick-fil-a’s values regarding the LGBT+ community are mutually exclusive.

So how did the university react to this liberal demand?

The awesome thing is that they rejected the leftist request, stating Chick-fil-A’s owner’s viewpoints were not why they chose the restaurant to be in their dining hall.

“We do not make vendor decisions based on their political or religious beliefs," Trinity vice president Tess Coody-Anders wrote in an email to students obtained Campus Reform. 

Anders also said that the school considers ”utilization, variety of options, vendor performance, and campus-wide feedback” as they choose vendors.

"Based on these criteria, Chick-fil-A appears to be a preferred vendor by students and the broader Trinity community," he said.

Trinity’s student government appeared to be bandwagoning off of San Antonio’s city council. The council banned Chick-fil-A from being a vendor at San Antonio International Airport. The Texas AG is investigating them for this, and rightfully so. 

Despite what Chick-fil-A opponents attempt to do to bring down this successful fast-food chain, they fail. It’s time for them to take a chill-pill and enjoy it with a side of waffle fries.
