One would think that the draw of an almost perfect chicken sandwich would override philosophical abstractions in the hearts and minds (and bellies) of college students.
Chick-fil-A has encountered opposition from student groups opposed to the company’s philanthropic leanings, claiming that it is “anti-gay.”
Most revealing is the NewSpeak that otherwise allegedly intelligent administrators adopt in catering to a fraction of the student body:
School administrators supported the decision, saying the company’s principles contradicted Northeastern’s respect for diversity and support for the gay community: “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 prepared statement.
Inclusive, diverse and respectful to all, that is, except for those who disagree.
The blatant hypocrisy and perverted logic in this sort of pabulum would be funny if were not becoming increasingly problematic not just to free access to a good chicken sandwich, but to religious liberty.
