Chick-a-fil Booted Off Northeastern University Campus

    Let's all applaud the students at Northeastern University who got together and said .... No F**kin way to a request for Chick-a-fil to open up shop on Campus

    After Northeastern University's student senate voted overwhelmingly to ban Chick-fil-A from campus, school officials cancelled a pending contract with the Atlanta-based fast food chain that's given millions to antigay causes. Northeastern was considering allowing Chick-fil-A to open a restaurant at the newly renovated student center, but a petition opposing the chain soon gained 300 student signatures.

    Then on Monday, the student senate voted 31 to 5, with eight abstentions, to oppose Chick-fil-A setting up shop. The university quickly cancelled the chain’s contract, much to the surprise of some students. The school sent out a press release that didn’t dance around the fact that Chick-fil-A was not welcome because it's donated to antigay causes through its charitable arm, Winshape.

    “We are proud of the decision that affirms our university’s commitment to be an inclusive, diverse community that is respectful of all,” college spokeswoman Renata Nyul said in a statement.

    Awesome! I hope that chain either shuts down or gets bought out by NON-Mormons.

    Good for them. Nice to see their corporate culture affect their bottom line.

    I went to Northeastern. And I'm none too surprised that this happened but very proud of the students and the Northeastern community for making their voices heard.

    You guys don't know what you are missing if you haven't had Chick-fil-a (wtf is chick-a-fil?). Simply the best fast food chicken sandwiches. I live really close to NU and this makes me sad. I don't agree with their principals of course...but they do make good food. Their waffle fries are to die for. Honestly there are so many corporations that have hidden agendas (racial, anti-gay, non-environmentally friendly, insider trading)... it's really a bother to worry about them all. I am not going to stop eating at one of my favorite chains because I don't agree with them socially. This must make me sound like a gay republican...so be it!

    Edit: I am from Atlanta for the record.. so I am very biased. Chick-fil-a's are evrywhere!

    I'm also an alum. The petition went around on Facebook very quickly once it got out that they were planning to build on campus.

    I'm very aware. I'm just not really getting how this discussion started from my comment.

    Theirs isn't hidden, they make no bones about it. I've never tried it (I've only ever seen one here, in a mall food court), but I generally avoid fast food to begin with.

    Yeah. The Southern Baptists don't baptize dead people. Instead, they molest their young and preach against doing that kind of stuff.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    I think one of the queens in that video must live here - she looks very familiar.
