An attack on Chick-fil-A from these leftist school administrators just backfired in a huge way

117

Chick-fil-A is one of the Left’s favorite targets because of its Christian values.

But one college campus issued a surprise decision about Chick-fil-A that made everyone livid.

And the fallout of that decision is starting to cost them in this huge way.

After Rider University students overwhelmingly voted in favor of bringing Chick-fil-A to campus, school administration sent out multiple emails criticizing the restaurant for its Christian values.

Christian students and faculty understandably saw it as an attack on their faith.

As a result, Cynthia Newman, the dean of the College of Business Administration, announced her resignation in response.

She said that the university handed her talking points to recite for why Chick-fil-A wouldn’t be brought on campus. But as a devout Christian, she couldn’t share those talking points in good faith.

The Daily Wire writes:

Last month, a dean from Rider University in New Jersey announced her resignation over the school’s decision to ban Chick-fil-A from becoming an on-campus restaurant.

In November, the university removed Chick-Fil-A from a list of possible new restaurant franchises to bring to campus, claiming that the fast food chain is “perceived to be in opposition to the LGBTQ+ community.”

Cynthia Newman, the dean of the College of Business announced her resignation — which will become effective on August, 31 — in a statement that reflected on the handling of the situation, Campus Reform reports.

Newman said she asked the university’s leaders to apologize for sending an email about the decision which Newman believes was offensive.

“Unfortunately, that did not happen,” Newman said. “Instead a second email was issued without any type of an apology and I, along with other campus leaders, was given a set of talking points about the Chick-fil-A decision that we were to use to respond to those who were critical of the decision. I could not, in a good conscience as a committed Christian, adhere to those talking points.”

“I am not willing to compromise my faith and Christian values and I will not be viewed as being in any way complicit when an affront is made to those values,” Newman stated.

The fact is, Rider University students wanted to bring Chick-fil-A to campus.

But leftist college administrators have to inject their radical politics into everything.

They can’t even allow students to enjoy delicious chicken sandwiches because Chick-fil-A offends their liberal sensibilities.

The only reason the university decided to bar Chick-fil-A from campus is simply because it’s a Christian company.

But they’re more than happy to welcome companies like Starbucks on campus, whose corporate values are extremely far left.

This is precisely why they are seeing their College of Business dean walk.

This is the latest example of the persecution Christians face on college campuses all across America.

As we reported, a Christian student senator at UC Berkeley was harassed and threatened for defending the Biblical view of gender and sex.

College campuses are supposed to be bastions of free speech and free thought.

But, once again, colleges are getting away with censoring the thoughts and opinions of those they find to be “problematic.”

Do you think Chick-fil-A’s views are “problematic?” Let us know in the comments.

  1. A compliment to Chick Fil-Fil-A
    Thank you for bringing Christian values into the workplace, where Christians are free to live their faith in God, and His only begotten son, Jesus Christ. Honesty, integrity, decency, and honor are of great value to practice for a life time. And the 10 commandments bear that out. Bless company and employees abundantly.

        • My child would not be going to that college whether they were Christian or not. I truly believe in free speech and I love chicken. the students wanted it there and so it should be there. There are a lot of LGBT who love Chick-Fil-A and eat at their stores all the time. They are served the same as anyone else, treated with the same respect as anyone else. You can’t find better chicken and isn’t that the bottom line. Take politics and religion
          out of where I buy my food !!!!!

      • we love chick fil -A let them protest, last time the left protested Chick fil-a had the biggest sales in their history.

        • In Lexington KY, when the “big boycott” was planned, cars formed a long line in the drive thru and people on foot waiting to get in the Chick-Fil-A circled the building.

      • Talking about Interstate Batteries, you cannot buy a better battery for auto, boat
        or RV than Interstate, Chick-fil-A, a wonderful place to eat, love them.

      • I love Chick -fil-A’s food especially the fries. My only problem with them is that they are closed on Sunday around here, but given that their employees need a day off and it’s probably easier for the restaurant to have just one day closed where everyone has off, I understand that it is the Christian way to rest on Sundays. I am a Sabbath Keeper myself on Saturday like the earliest Christians were, so I applaud and understand their observation of a day of rest.

      • I was never much for chicken so I didn’t eat there, but since the queers started protesting the eatery I started going there. So I thank the queers for introducing me to this fine eatery❤️✝️

    • Amen Amen Thank you MS. NEWMAN for standing up to Christian values. God bless you. What a shame . When colleges & universaties were first started [don’t faint leftest] my Catholic Monks…. God bless America we sure need his blessings.

    • Chick-fil-A’s views are my views- and the views of MOST Americans from the founding of this nation to this president day. The liberals are out of line, hateful, and are trying to FORCE their views/agenda of me and others of like persuasion. Because of stupid stunts like this I’ll always choose Chick-fil-A over Starbucks any day.

  2. All this anti-Christian stuff was brought to the front by Obama. This thing should never have been allowed in Government let alone run for Pres. This non-citizen should have been sent packing years ago. Way too much leftist crap going on now, gets worse every day. If we don’t start punishing these low life’s we’re over.

    • All this anti-Christian crap started long before Obummer was elected. This all started with Brown vs the board of education, and Roe vs Wade. It all got worse when gutter trash Slick Willie Clinton dump his women hating evil behavior on this country for decades to come. Now with open anti- jewish low-lifes being elected to congress. God cannot be pleased with what’s going on in a once 90% Christian nation.

      • Isn’t funny that we go against our on people wh call themselves Americans! Yet I would bet you the farm that if a Muslim wanted to bring a restaurant it would be approved! Remember America these are the people who killed almost 3000 people at the twin towers how soon we forget! Do you think those families have forgotten? You know Russia’s Kruschev said many years ago that they would take over America from within without firing a shot! Think about it! If you don’t bad things are coming it just might be a real civil Real Americans against leftest!

        • True! The mulisms scream kill Americans and nobody says a word. Can’t hurt their feelings, right? That could get you beheaded!

  3. I really don’t care whether Chick-fil-A, or Starbucks for that matter, winds up on campus. Personally I wouldn’t walk across the street for either one. So clearly I don’t care about this. Though I will give a shoutout to Newman for walking the walk.

    But it does give me the opportunity to point out that the LGBTQ+ Community needs protection from so called “Christians” more than the other way around.

    • They sure do need protection. Just look at what happened to Jussie Smollett. And that angry mob of Catholic kids at this year’s Right to Life March. It’s a crazy world we live in. Huh? Smollett was charged with filing a false police complaint?
      I was ready to think there were bands of Catholic kids ravishing neighborhoods looking for those LGBQTLSMFT people.
      Whew, now I can sleep at night.

      • It seems that THEY are their OWN worst enemies, including an unhealthy Life Style, and then Jussie Smollett is a MEMBER of their group. He had this notion that his faked attack would get him a better acting position and would be a strike for his buds, or something. It WAS kinda stupid, that is for SURE

    • Who’s going to protect them from the wrath of God? People you are just not realizing we are living out the Bible right now. Read Revelation something that was written years ago and is happening before our eyes. The problem is the left wants you to believe that Christians hate the gay community that is not true. We do not condone the sin but we hate no one I am speaking for true Christian’s. Everyone is going to die that we surely can agree on after that you will stand before God whether you believe or not and God will make the final decision on your soul and there ain’t no do overs and I am sorry is to late. I have done my part many times I tell everyone about Jesus so people can’t say I never knew.

      • Thank you, Bill!! Well stated, and very correct!! Christians DO NOT, and I repeat, DO NOT HATE LGBTQ’s!!! We love ALL PEOPLE as instructed by our Lord Jesus!! We merely do not agree with the SIN they are committing. We cannot condone their actions, which will cost them their souls!!

      • I totally agree with your statement! We are seeing prophecy fulfilled right before our very eyes. Those who are totally unaware need the Lord. Judgment is staring us in the face! God help those who don’t know Him!

    • You are 180 degrees wrong, sir. It is the other way around …. Christians (and everybody else) needs protection from the LGBTQ agenda and their ‘demands’. I do not understand why so many so-called “leaders’ think they have to knuckle-under to those relatively few. Of course that ‘few’ are out there making all the noise… and the mainstream media picks it up and runs with it. Sad.

    • LGBTQ people need God and the sin they are doing, they need to repent and stop leading this life style. If they don’t it will cost them their soul and God will tell them I know I know you not

    • The LBGT-whatever, doesn’t deserve any more or less protection then any God fearing Christian in this country. But, if you want to be political about this, then think about Hitlery taking all that money from the country’s that throw lesbians and gays off roofs! KEEP AMERICA GREAT 2020

    • When have any Christians attacked LBGT people as the Leftists have attacked those who wear MAGA hats or those who dare to eat in a restaurant whose management disagrees with their politics, or those who have Conservative views? What makes it o.k. for someone to attack anyone on the street who disagrees with them politically? It’s o.k on the Left but let a conservative say the “politically incorrect thing”, and he will be banished from society. Leftists are the most intolerant people on this earth, and their behavior is getting more dangerous every day.

      • These attacks, riots & incitement to riot against & on anything that is not far left (marxist-fascist-communist-), including safardic Jews, are financed & organized by Nazi sympathizer Soros & middle east oil money-Islam, & condoned or ignored in our mainstream media & by our treasonous (anti constitution) rats at all levels of government, in our schools, churches, mosques & conventional media. Fundamentalist-literalists (fundaMental) religion IS a very large part of the problem & of the cause & never has & never will will save you from this insanity in any way – wake up! you are down & are going down ’til you are eliminated! Look at realiy, WAKE UP! Your churches are full of traitors-social-justice-commie-bleeding-hearts-racist-self-haters & whites haters.

    • Eric, you have no idea of what a Christian is. You indicate in your criticism that all sinners should fear Jesus. It is not Jesus and Christians who make people be holy. However, it is Demos and libs who force law-abiding Christian citizens to follow anti-scriptural laws…..think “Kim Davis”

    • Eric: You must be one of the lbjq bunch, otherwise you wouldn’t be ”touting” that the queer bunch needs protection~!! Why on earth do they need protection more than those of us who are Born-Again Christians”?
      It’s quite obvious that you are a “Christian hater”, So I think you are being very critical of Christians!
      Do you realize that if you don’t accept JESUS as your LORD & SAVIOUR, that you will go to hell, when the
      Rapture takes place? (that is after the 7 yrs of Tribulation) At that time, if you confess JESUS as LORD, you will have your head cut off!!!! I thank GOD for Companies like Chik Fi-Lay & others who refuse to lay down their Christian principles! That University doesn’t deserve them, Chik-Fi-Lay is too good for them!!!!

  4. I find that this college is suppressing religion freedom on campus. one of our main constitutional rights. by restricting a company because of their values just shows that the school should take a refresher course in history and our rights. Chick Fi A might be a company based on Christian values but they do not try to teach that to their customers. its just the way they run their own lives. I don’t see you stopping other companies from your campus…..I personally,do not do business with certain companies because I do not like their policies….Starbucks, Target and Dick’s to name a few…but I do tell other people they can’t go there it is their decisions…..I think your treatment in this manner is a disgrace and a slap in many students that attend your school.

    • Eric is an uninformed fool and clearly wishes to stay that way which makes him a stupid uninformed fool. I agreed with the first part of his post. If I don’t like a certain business I just won’t spend my money there. I don’t care if anyone else spends their money at a business or not. Protect gays from Christians? True Christians will pray for the sinners and if the sinner turns away from the sin then all is forgiven. If not then it is God who will decide their fate, not human beings. Muslims are the ones who will not wait for Alla to decide the sinner’s fate. They’ll decide for Alla. It was a muslim that shot up a gay bar in Florida, not a Christian.

  5. It is wearisome to see our nation subjected to this adversarial mentality. Why does having a set of values put one at odds with people who hold a different view? The extremists on both sides have set the stage for finger pointing. As a Christian, why should my beliefs be branded as intolerant or evil? If a person is within the LGBTQ, why should their voice be louder, or lifestyle be more accepted than mine? If Chick-fil-A offends you, simply don’t go, but you should not have the right to supercede what others want and have the right to enjoy. Intolerance from the left seems to be accepted and that is wrong – period!

  6. Freedom of speech and freedom of religion is under attack. it’s time to fight back.
    Just bought a MAGA hat. And screw anybody who tries to mess with ne.

  7. The extreme lefts need to get a new brain. I love Chick f let because it has healthy choices. I don’t boycott any religion but I don’t go to Starbucks because it’s too expensive with way to many calories. Please democrats get a life

  8. I just retired from teaching philosophy at a New England state college. The administration wanted us to EDIT THE SYLLABUS so as not to offend “The Millennial Mentality”. BALDERDASH! Colleges, today, are weapons of THE LEFT and it’s anti-MORAL sensibility.

  9. They need to leave politics out of it. The students should be allowed to have the restaurant if that’s what they wan.t And the fact that all they care about is the gay community shows how discriminating they are. If Christian restaurants can’t be there then neither should any non-Christian restaurants.

  10. It is time forth nation to take back our Christian values and principles and fire the liberal jerks that attack our foundations of our religion. They protect those of Muslims and whackos so fire them!

  11. Every student who wanted Chick-fil-A on campus and will not be getting one
    should refuse to purchase any food from anyone on campus –
    that should drive the snakes out.
    FYI: each Friday during Lent Chick-fil-A sells a fried fish sandwich.

    • Sam Oliva: Maybe all the students who want Chik-Fi-A should have a ”walk out of classes”, until they get a the above Restaurant put into their University! & then also have a parade on campus, to show their ”disdain for the schoo officials”. Maybe…..that might help,Ya reckon?

  12. USA used to brag on their “equality “ for all- now we bend over backwards for a few that cry all the time. This should be a non issue because the students voted on it and majority won. I’m sure the students who voted were diverse and not just Christians. To me this was what democracy is all about- not a right or left issue. Who is going to suffer if Chick fil a is allowed on campus anyway? Spend you time on more important issues like our starving/ poor folks in this country!

  13. I don’t have the answer but something must be done with these liberal left wing college administrators who want to force their way of thinking on the entire student body.Liberals left unchecked will destroy this country.

  14. then their should be a ban on all food sources on campus, make everybody go off campus to eat. that should include all vending machines.

  15. God bless the people who run Chic Filet. Our tax dollars should not be funding the colleges in this country. We are inadvertently helping the left spread this liberal nonsense. Did you know that professors work between 10 to 15 hours per week. True check it out.

  16. One is either a “believer” or not! You cannot leave your faith at the door! And you believe in all kinds of weather! Those who are unbelievers are misguided, and when they finally stand in judgment they will “weep and wail and gnash their teeth,” but it will be too late! But then, that was their choice! They chose the wrong guides! They will have no one to blame but themselves!

  17. Personally; I saw or read nothing which seemed to actually “hurt” the campus. They will just hire someone else to replace Ms. Newman. People like these admin. need to be taught expensive and hard lessons, or else they will just keep stepping on the rights of honest and moral people!

  18. I didn’t read all the comments. but if you don’t believe any of this google the frankfurt school and you’ll see that the zionist make believes left germany and set up shop here in the good old USA on a communist platform to destory us cut and dry.

  19. There must be some way to stop a Christian country’s subsidies to any school of learning if they suppress free speech of any. I’m sure if this was a Muslim company the building would be on campus in a heartbeat.

  20. I stand with Chick-fil-a and the students who wanted them. The liberals need to be put in their place by us, the majority of conservatives who PAY THE BILLS. Any time these leftwing, radical, atheistic, immoral, perverts pull this kind of stunt, we need to pull the money, call the one over their head, call your congressman/senator, etc! DON’T JUST SIT STILL AND TAKE IT! FIGHT BACK!

  21. God bless Chick-fil-A! nearest one to us is 100 miles & eat there every chance we get! students should refuse to eat at any food establishment on campus! backers of university should start looking into what’s happened to their school & maybe change leadership! thank you Chick-fil-A for not being ashamed to share the love of JESUS!

  22. Well, Cynthia Newman, I hope you will never get another job ever again for the rest of your evil life. If Hell reaches out to grab you it will be a good thing for all of humanity. The same goes for the rest of these evil Teachers and So-Called Professors.

  23. It’s wonderful when people make a choice to chose God’s law over the worlds. That administrator was following her heart. The trick i’m working on is how to love those who persecute me.
    For years I hated the word God much less the name of Jesus or Christian, so I “get” the hate from non believers. it was the behind the scenes prayers, and the QUIET love from folks in spite of my uneducated/
    mouthy hate that drew me to Christ.
    The battle is not to win WARS against folks, but to WIN our enemies to Christ, so a reminder to me and you is to respond as God leads and not react by our hateful emotions. Its easy to display resentments and maturity to balance love and truth in tough encounters. I need lots of prayer to do that!

  24. Maybe the entire administrative staff should be replaced at Rider for their obvious lack of any values and concern for the students. They let there personal warped un-American opinions exceed any concern they might pretend to have for their students. Chick-Fil-A is a very reputable restaurant with wholesome food.

  25. Although Chick-Fil-A was wanted by the student body, it would be better not to be associated with such a compound. To me, this is not a school of higher education. It appears to be more like a modern day Third Reich or the Hitler Youth training camp. No, Chick-Fil-A doesn’t need to sully their good name!

  26. In response to the question “Do you think Chick-fil-A’s views are “problematic?” Yes of course they are for the godless non-believers. This of course includes most of the cultural Left, who will do anything in their power to persecute the faithful and undermine religious liberty.

  27. I love it that we have a restaurant who will stand up for our religious rights. More power to Chick-fil-A.
    We eat there frequently in Kingsport, Tenn.

  28. I think it’s about time that Christian believing individuals stand up and take a stand against the evil and sinful ideas that are confronting us today. It has become as evil as the days of Sodom and Gomorrah in Old Testament days. God didn’t tolerate it then, and He doesn’t tolerate it today. There will be a “payday” someday, and it may not be far away.

  29. ‪Expose, Boycott, Sue, prosecute and bring to justice all these deep state treasonous NAZI commie liberal demoncrats post-haste,Patriots! Drain the rat infested swamp President Trump!‬

  30. Let’s declare a day when all evil Chick A Filet sandwiches will be eaten in protest. And so be it for the waffle fries. I would be happy to do my duty by having more the next day. Maybe we can show our disrespect by eating every item on the menu. Selling a premium product in a friendly and efficient manner is surely an affront to any Riderite. Probably takes a two digit SAT score to get into Rider.

  31. It is long past time we too pull our support away from institutions that are so sure their wrong values are right

  32. I am a Christian and I am sick and tired of the left attack against my religious beliefs. They claim Christians are predigest, but it is the left actions that are truly predigest. I am disgusted that the left has made a farce of our legal system and their desire to change our country comes before the true law of the land. It is time to put an end to all of this. It is time for Christians to take a stand and take back our country. This so called place of higher education should be given a lesson and have all of their federal funding removed for being predigest against another’s rights to beliefs, but we know it is the in thing to discriminate against Christians.

  33. The Muslim leftist Democrats are after the food we eat, they compare our First Lady to a closeted queen, they are after the character of our children, they are after our religion, the paleness of our skin and they not only bought American media and all the air waves to keep us from hearing about our American Rights, but, now Muslim leftist Democrat’s Cruella bought Disneyland and all it’s media, so “Princess Jasmine Cortes can silence our Judge America”. Brain washing our ignorant children to go to college and hold the traffic in the street. All while they keep us from getting justice for the vile deeds of the Obama’s and the Clinton’s.

  34. Treason is a badge of honor for the Godless NAZI Commie liberal Racist Demoncrat Party and RINOs! The party of hate, hypocrisy, lies, deception, Fake News (Russian Collusion and Jussie M hoax) the list is endless! And the clueless minions that follow them!

  35. The anti-Christian employees who complained should be fired – immediately! The education system has enough fools already.

  36. Mmmmm….all this Chick-fil-A talk is making me hungry! Love Chick-fil-A! The world will get their wish for a godless world one day and I say let them have it – they will rue the day they denied God. His righteous judgement is upon them. God’s Word to the unbeliever is this …”let God be true, but every man a liar:…” Rom. 3:4 Their unbelief does not make “the faith of God without effect”. Rom. 3:3

  37. Please note any time that Chick-fil-A ever denies service to any one because of race, religion or political association/

  38. The BEST resolution to this will be to boycott this “school of ‘higher’ education” – what a farce!
    It is Christianity that can save us! Pray, Pray,Pray, and stand up for what is correct!!!!!

  39. Well at least Chick A Flic is not allowing men in women’s bathrooms so I only go into Target now when I can’t find what I want elsewhere and do not stay long. And Chick A Flic is not giving children sheets to color with instructions on how to do homosexual sex or that children are transgenders, boys not boys and girls not girls. You can just go in and eat in piece without fear of using their bathrooms and giving your kids coloring pages. And just what law has been passed that tells me I can only eat where the democrats and homosexuals say I can eat. After all these are the people who gave us AIDS and demanded that the law be made that nurses and doctors and dentists and helpers could not tell the people working on people with AIDS that the patient has AIDS back when it was thought AIDS was passed through the mouth and blood. Than it was determined it was passed through the needle and sex between men. Why should these people have the right to tell us where we can eat when they refused to let us know we were working on a patient with AIDS or having sex with them.

  40. Thessalonians 2nd Letter of Paul chapter 2 para -12 explains the behavior “God shall send them strong delusions, that they should believe a lie : That they all might be damned who believe not the truth , but had pleasure in unrighteousness:: This the devils/Satan’s time . Scholars have remark that this could be the time of sorrows (revelation) Persecution is part of being a Christian, China Middle East… We are fortunate, for now, that we can practice in the open, A time will come when this will not be true even in our country. Pray for those that attack Christians for God to soften their hearts and see and seek the truth.
