Boycott of Chick-fil-A Organized By EQCU

Local LGBTQ activist group Equality Champaign-Urbana has announced a boycott of the Chick-fil-A restaurant franchise. This action is in coordination with the LGBT law group OUTlaw as well as other University of Illinois student groups who are working to keep the fast food chain's contract from being renewed at the UIUC. Indiana University South Bend, Florida Gulf Coast University, Duke University and the University of North Texas are also working to either remove the franchise or keep it from coming to their school.

Recently the restaurant came under fire from the LGBTQ community when it was revealed that they have donated food and money to a number of anti-LGBTQ groups including Focus on the Family, the National Organization for Marriage, Exodus International and the Pennsylvania Family Institute. Chick-fil-A has also said that same-sex couples are not welcome at the company's marriage institute.

Equality Champaign-Urbana believes that it is neccesary to boycott Chick-fil-A because they finance inequality. It is wrong to pay for our own discrimination or anyone else's.

To show your support for the boycott visit eQuality C-U's "Boycott Chick-fil-A UIUC" Facebook page and the "eQuality C-U" page. Also visit OUTlaw's Facebook page "UI Students Against Chick Fil A on Campus".

To find out more about the boycott, email eQuality C-U at equality.cu@gmail.com or come to a meeting. Meetings are every Tuesday at 7pm at the Wesley Foundation on the corner of Green and Goodwin in Urbana while the UIUC is in session. For locations and times when the UIUC is not in session, please email.

 

are they much different than KFC, Taco Bell, etc

During the past 30 years campuses have literaly been overrun by

JUNK FOOD POISON.

Here comes another example - Chich-fil-A.

It would not surprise me if KFC, Taco Bell, etc

are just as guilty of supporting the "social conservatives".

They serve the same  toxic crap -

torture victims loaded with chemicals.

 

You need to look at some photos of your campus before the blight of

junk food emporiums took over.

 

Dump them all, in the name of sanity.

Support CFA!

I support CFA because they support my worldview and not the liberal redefinition of values that leftwingers push into every corner of our culture. The gay agenda has everyone else running scared, but not CFA.

The liberals have the White House, the senate, half the supreme court, most of the lower courts, the majority of news outlets (CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS), 90% of Hollywood's output, the music industry, the Universities, the labor unions, and now are taking over the military. Do you really think that CFA is hurting you that much? Or is total conquest and elimination of Christian thought the end goal.

What Consumers Don't Know

I'd bet most consumers don't know about CFA's policy of funding groups so far out of the mainstream of tolerant American values. If they did, maybe they will do like me.

"Chicken sandwich please, and hold the hate..."

Since I can't get that at CFA, I'll take my business elsewhere.

BTW, hate is not a Christian value, but maybe my definition of what constitutes Christianity is somewhat more inclusive than yours.

Persecuted Christians? Give me a break.

And the Supreme Court? Packed by the right wing with conservative corporate butt-kissers who vote to reinforce the power of wealth and greed every chance they get. You're right on one thing -- that court doesn't sound very Christian to me either.
