Students at Duquesne University are reportedly “fearing” the arrival of a Chick-fil-A sandwich station to their food court on campus.
The uproar stems from the controversy over Chick-fil-A’s recent support of traditional marriage.
Student-body senators say that a Chick-fil-A location at their school is unacceptable, and are trying to cancel plans for the restaurant to open later this year.
Chick-fil-A has been the subject of protests from gay-friendly activists since its President, Dan Cathy, acknowledged donating money to organizations opposed to changing the traditional legal definition of marriage.
However, there is no evidence that you can be threatened or politically oppressed by one of the chain’s delicious sandwiches, or even by passing the patties in a cafeteria.
“I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being (on campus) that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” GSA president Rachel Coury said.
