Texas State: Chick-fil-A can stay on campus as long as it’s raking in money

Classes at Texas State University started Monday against a backdrop of protests and support for the on-campus Chick-fil-A restaurant.

The school newspaper, The University Star, ran an article about the protests of students who started a Change.org petition tilted “Stop the Hate at Texas State: Remove the Chick-fil-A from the LBJ Student Union at Texas State University.” So far, 507 people have signed it.

The petition states that the company’s presence on campus is not in line with a university policy that prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation.

“This is not just about their organization opposing marriage for all, but also the view of homosexuality as inferior to heterosexuality, and therefore supporting hatred, social inequality, and family strife among those of us with LGBT family members and friends,” the petition reads in part.
