Students fear new Chick-fil-A will create unsafe space on campus

Students fear new Chick-fil-A will create unsafe space on campus

.

Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students.

.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is what I mean when I say, 'Liberalism is a lie'.  They say they are for diversity. I say 'hogwash'.  They don't even believe in diversity of food on campus.

.

Students (snowflakes) fear Chick-fil-A?   

.

Don't be afraid you little cupcakes. Go to your liberal arts professor and he'll find a safe space for you in his closet..

    “Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights,” Mr. Martini said in a statement to the student newspaper, The Duke. “I think it’s imperative the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion.”
    Duquesne is a Catholic university, and the church teaches that all homosexual acts are “intrinsically evil.”
    The student government did not adopt that resolution, but agreed to consider another measure vetting the views of the popular chicken sandwich shop.
    .
    funny you should make mention They don’t even believe in diversity AFTER They say they are for diversity.
    heres a catholic university whose mission statement IS they give students diversity and inclusion….BUT they are anti gay
    .
    who are the real assholes here herr brn?
    thats right, those gawd damn navel gazing hey zeus followers
    .
    “We’re preparing the future leaders of the profession by:
    … creating an educational environment that recognizes and supports the self-identified needs of the marginalized in our society, and also fosters the ability of our students to do the same.
    … modeling and advocating ethical leadership, creating curriculum and educational experiences using evidence-based means in an environment that fosters social responsibility.
    … modeling and advocating ethical and just behavior toward all human beings while establishing the foundation for a continual path of transformation of the self, the profession, and the community.”…except of course if you happen to be gay

      They, Chick-Fil-A, do not have a questionable history, they have never discriminated against an employee nor a customer. They support the things they believe in & have for decades paid the fine in many shopping malls for refusing to open on Sunday. They pay their taxes & they give to charity, sounds like a good business to me.
      .
      The University has a chapter of Lambda, I assume you know that Lambda is a gay rights group dedicated to student rights. Seems if the University were as anti gay as you suggest they’d have refused Lambda a chapter house.

        n January 2011, the media reported that the American fast food restaurant chain Chick-fil-A was co-sponsoring a marriage conference along with the Pennsylvania Family Institute (PFI), an organization that had filed an amicus brief against striking down Proposition 8 in California (see Perry v. Brown).34567 The PFI lobbied against a state effort to ban discrimination in Pennsylvania on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.

        sounds like a questionable history on civil rights and human rights to moi
        .
        Duquesne University has a chapter of Lambda
        .
        Phi Lambda Sigma (PLS)
        Eta Chapter of Phi Lambda Sigma, a national pharmacy leadership society, was chartered at Duquesne University in 1980. The society recognizes and encourages leadership in the profession of pharmacy.

          Sounds like people acting on their beliefs in a completely legal & democratic way, nothing more than the exercise of free speech. Diversity.

            yeah right
            free speech overrides civil and human rights every time

            1. Munkyman

              It’s an amicus brief, not an attack on human rights, it does in my opinion oppose civil rights as I see them, based on the fact that the marriage contract confers federal benefits. If it didn’t I’d say the feds have no interest in marriage rights, until the marriage bond confers advantages at any governmental level or in a business that does business across state lines or is designated hospitality or transportation.

              Amicus Curiae
              Literally, friend of the court. A person with strong interest in or views on the subject matter of an action, but not a party to the action, may petition the court for permission to file a brief, ostensibly on behalf of a party but actually to suggest a rationale consistent with its own views.

              blah blah blah, the university could disband it on the campus IF they were as hostile to gays as you want to suggest.

            5. Munkyman

              A private school can exclude anyone/group they want, they may lose their accreditation & any non aid based funding, but they have the same rights as any other private association to be exclusive. Public opinion not the courts forced the Boy Scouts to accept gays & now trans.. Ignorant twit argue your own laws, if you understand them any better You arguing ours would be funny if you weren’t so sincere & wrong.

              .
              Title IX
              .
              The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:
              .
              No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
              .
              Scope of Title IX
              .
              Title IX applies to institutions that receive federal financial assistance from ED, including state and local educational agencies. These agencies include approximately 16,500 local school districts, 7,000 postsecondary institutions, as well as charter schools, for-profit schools, libraries, and museums. Also included are vocational rehabilitation agencies and education agencies of 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories and possessions of the United States.
              .
              Educational programs and activities that receive ED funds must operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. Some key issue areas in which recipients have Title IX obligations are: recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; athletics; sex-based harassment; treatment of pregnant and parenting students; discipline; single-sex education; and employment. Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or made charges, testified or participated in any complaint action under Title IX. For a recipient to retaliate in any way is considered a violation of Title IX. The ED Title IX regulations (Volume 34, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 106) provide additional information about the forms of discrimination prohibited by Title IX.
              OCR’s Enforcement of Title IX
              .
              OCR vigorously enforces Title IX to ensure that institutions that receive federal financial assistance from ED comply with the law. OCR evaluates, investigates, and resolves complaints alleging sex discrimination. OCR also conducts proactive investigations, called compliance reviews, to examine potential systemic violations based on sources of information other than complaints.
              .
              In addition to its enforcement activities, OCR provides technical assistance and information and guidance to schools, universities and other agencies to assist them in voluntarily complying with the law. OCR’s Title IX Resource Guide download files PDF (501K) is a useful tool for schools and their Title IX coordinators to understand schools’ obligations under Title IX.
              .
              For assistance related to Title IX or other civil rights laws, please contact OCR at OCR@ed.gov or 800-421-3481, TDD 800-877-8339.

            try to think of it this way spunky
            you have the employers (say ford motor company OR Duquesne University)
            then you have the union (UAW or this chapter of Lambda)
            .
            youre trying to pretend that the university doesnt feel that all homosexual acts are “intrinsically evil.”
            because the student group was able to form a chapter

            1. Munkyman

              Tolerance is what the university is practicing. Unions have been locked out, owners have chosen in some case to go out of business rather than admit a union… that’s freewill & the university is exercising their freewill by tolerating a student organization on their campus that “coddles” those who are at odds with the core beliefs of the university as an organization dedicated to their “faith.”

    An “unsafe” environment? As I recall it is Liberals NOT Conservatives who have used violence and murder to force their views. I guess as far as the Liberals are concerned a “safe” place is one where ONLY Liberal views are allowed.

      Last week on a local radio program a black Republican in his thirties was promoting minorities in becoming Republican. He cited closet racism from the Demo-liberal parties to keep them in their places. He also mentioned the actor Denzel Washington not winning Oscars for positive roles but a negative character he played in Training Day.
      I forgot his name but pointed the finger at the “racist” liberal controlled medias.
      Good to see and hear someone of colored finally seeing the light.

        The Liberal controlled media IS racist, liars and basically controlled by the DNC. All African-Americans need to do is research where the KKK started and who has fed it and they will immediately see how racist, bigoted and discriminatory the DNC is.

        April 13, 2017

          1865
          KKK founded
          .
          In Pulaski, Tennessee, a group of Confederate veterans convenes to form a secret society that they christen the “Ku Klux Klan.” The KKK rapidly grew from a secret social fraternity to a paramilitary force bent on reversing the federal government’s progressive Reconstruction Era-activities in the South, especially policies that elevated the rights of the local African American population.

          The name of the Ku Klux Klan was derived from the Greek word kyklos, meaning “circle,” and the Scottish-Gaelic word “clan,” which was probably chosen for the sake of alliteration. Under a platform of philosophized white racial superiority, the group employed violence as a means of pushing back Reconstruction and its enfranchisement of African Americans. Former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest was the KKK’s first grand wizard; in 1869, he unsuccessfully tried to disband it after he grew critical of the Klan’s excessive violence.

          Most prominent in counties where the races were relatively balanced, the KKK engaged in terrorist raids against African Americans and white Republicans at night, employing intimidation, destruction of property, assault, and murder to achieve its aims and influence upcoming elections. In a few Southern states, Republicans organized militia units to break up the Klan. In 1871, the Ku Klux Act passed Congress, authorizing President Ulysses S. Grant to use military force to suppress the KKK. The Ku Klux Act resulted in nine South Carolina counties being placed under martial law and thousands of arrests. In 1882, the U.S. Supreme Court declared the Ku Klux Act unconstitutional, but by that time Reconstruction had ended and the KKK had faded away.
          .
          The 20th century witnessed two revivals of the KKK: one in response to immigration in the 1910s and ’20s, and another in response to the African American civil rights movement of the 1950s and ’60s.

          It has started during the Trump campaign where black Republicans are campaigning against the liberal controlled racist media about the truth of the Demo party…the sheets are being taken off.

            As well they should! It’s about time that the DNC was exposed for the Liberal, racist, bigoted, big spenders and panderers of Socialism that they are.

    Trump should not fund any of those Schools and Universities.

    Why does even the most benign shit always seem to HAVE to be a point of contention for some whiney, ass-sore losers? It’s a fucking sandwich shop for Magical Sky Man’s sake! If you don’t like them, how about simply NOT buying anything from them? Whatever happened to that “tolerance” everyone is always flapping their dick-waxers about? Is someone going to be forced to eat there? Are they handing out bibles or anti-abortion literature? Are they refusing to hire a tranny or gay person? Then maybe everyone involved should dial it back a few thousand degrees and get the fuck over this kind of useless stupid shit. Everyone has the ability to just say “no” to going to a Chik-Fil-A while allowing them to exist as well. Fucking whiney PUSSIES! I don’t think Chipotle should literally be allowed to exist as they actually have killed people, but that’s okay, apparently, because they’re a Mexican-food chain. Can’t have anything American, after all, even if it won’t possibly kill you. As a matter of fact, check that. This campus should absolutely have a Chipotle!

        Because it’s not complex. There’s just too many whiney pussies raised to believe that their wants/needs/desires are somehow more important than those of other people. It’s a total lack of consideration, courtesy, and respect from mostly millennials, that’s amplified in places where they are the majority. Too many parents coddled their children, making sure they always got a trophy and never lost at anything, their poor little virgin ears never heard a disparaging word, their precious little eyes never seeing anything shocking or disturbing. They’re good little automatons parroting all the tripe with which they were indoctrinated, too stupid and unaware to see that the wider world around them doesn’t conform to their idealistic view of reality. Unable to come to terms with actual reality or comprehend that they are not the center of the universe, like mommy told them, they lash out at others with their holier-than-thou attitudes, so certain of their moral superiority over all others…because their so tolerant and all. lol!

    It was reported that Chick-fil-A has been a bane of the left since CEO Dan Cathy said the company supports “the biblical definition of the family unit.” Why would the CEO have to say that? And the reason is because he is a devout Baptist who owns Chick-fil-A and, as stated publicly, has been running his business in expression of his service to God. This is the reason why Chick-fil-A doesn’t open on Sunday, Thanksgiving and Christmas; and yet, with God’s support, it could beat McDonald’s in business performance. Duquense is a private Catholic University that has no qualms in providing a safe space for gays in its student body. Now, what’s in these activist students mind when they petitioned against Chic-fil-A having a space in inclusive Duquense? These are my talking points. All I need is for Tucker Carlson to take on McNasty tonight.

      When Liberals talk about a “safe place” it means that the violence, murder and blatant discrimination is reserved for whites, males and Christians.

      Same thing with Hobby Lobby as with Chick-fil-A. Don’t you dare say Marriage should be between a man and a woman. The left doesn’t like that. You better bake them a gay cake or they will burn a swastika on your front lawn.
      .
      On the other side of their mouths, they love the Muslims who will throw gays off building and rock and roll them to make sure they are dead. Liberals are insane in the membrane.

    I say let Chick-fil-A set up shop.
    Students should concentrate on their studies and stay out of companies who are expanding on campuses. It’s called financial gain.
    Traditional marriages should and will be preserved.

    We need more stores such as Chic-Fil-A who maintain our American integrity.
