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.
