Chick-Fil-A is not a fan of the gay community. Well, at least that’s what one student at NYU claimed, after hearing that the fast food chain apparently did not support same-sex marriages. A student, during the fall semester, approached the Student Senators Council (SSC) proposing to ban Chick-Fil-A on campus and a recent vote was actually taken on the matter (See below). With no evidence, the SSC obviously ruled in favor of Chick-Fil-A continuing be a part of the campus. Luckily, they made the right decision because otherwise thousands of students would have had a much more valid protest.
Historically, Chick-Fil-A has been known for its Southern Baptist roots which is why the restaurant is closed on Sundays. This doesn’t mean though that Chick-Fil-A openly discriminates against homosexuals like the student tried to argue. If a student wants to make a political stand by boycotting Chick-Fil-A, more power to them. To the rest of us though, this seems more than extreme. Students should never be denied the “Home of the original chicken sandwich.”
