University Refuses Non-Progressive Chick-fil-A To Students On Campus
Published : November 26, 2018
Students at Rider University in Lawrenceville, New Jersey completely understand this little chicken nugget. According to a survey conducted by the university asking which fast food restaurant should be opened on campus, the students chose Chick-fil-A as the top choice.
But because university administrators are woke and Chick-fil-A is bigoted, waffle fries will not be found on Rider’s campus. To defend its wokeness, the university sent an email and posted on its website stating that Chick-fil-A was not progressive enough for the university.
“Chick-fil-A was removed as one of the options based on the company's record widely perceived to be in opposition to the LGBTQ+ community,” stated the letter penned by President Gregory G. Dell’Omo and Leanna Fenneberg, vice president of Student Affairs. “Ultimately, we decided to lean in the direction of creating a welcoming environment where differences can be appreciated and where each individual can expect to experience dignity and respect.”
Chick-fil-A is a restaurant that arguably serves the best chicken in the country, and every worker will say it is their pleasure to assist you, no matter how much of a jerk the customer may come across.
But OK, in the interest of fairness, the game can be played as to the progressive levels of the current restaurants on the Rider University campus. There is a Subway, which until recently served yoga mats in its bread. And for more than a decade the company used Jared Fogle as the spokesperson. Fogle went from being “the Subway guy” to the porn guy who had sex with children because he was so inclusive.
And then there is racist Starbucks, which had the debacle in Philadelphia when two black men refused to order something but demanded to hang out in the store. The manager called the cops, and insanity ensued because, you know, racism.
But Chick-fil-A is the non-inclusive restaurant, the unwoke company. It is so unwoke that workers get Sundays off to rest. Founder S. Truett Cathy gave Sundays off because he wanted his employees to rest and be with family and friends, stating that one of the most important principles in life is that family must come first. And that principle comes from his value structure, which comes from the Bible. And there is the sauce.
Cathy, who passed away in 2014, was a Christian and followed biblical principles. He was married to his wife Jeannette for 65 years. The couple had three children and those children dare to continue being biblically principled, which is reflected in the company purpose. “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.”
Leftists cannot get past the first three words and do not care that Chick-fil-A is consistently one of the best places to work. They do not care that all year food is donated to local shelters and soup kitchens or that after disasters local Chick-fil-A restaurant employees will take enough food to feed the victims and first responders.
And here is one specifically for Rider University, which should care about the students they are supposed to have the pleasure of serving. Cathy placed such a high value on earning a college education—one he never had—that since 1973 more than $45 million in scholarship money has been awarded to 42,400 team members so they could earn that degree.
“Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else – our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return,” Cathy once said.
That sounds pretty inclusive.
