CofC against the opening of a Homophobic Chick-Fil-A on campus

      Charleston, SC

Chik-Fil-A, a recently declared supporter of anti-gay causes, is going to open another branch on the College of Charleston campus in the fall semester of 2012. Because of its large gay population, many of the students of College of Charleston may feel this is unwise in the light of the recent "homophobic" declaration of the franchise. Chik-Fil-A has donated over $2 million to anti-gay groups, including Exodus International, a huge contributor to the "ex-gay" movement, which uses mental degradation to "cure the gay" in people, but instead, instilling self-hate and negativity [not approved by the American Psychiatric Association]. As a respected college and community, we can afford to put our support elsewhere, especially if the College of Charleston has been striving for a more diverse campus.

      I am an alumni, and I am gay. I had a great experience in college and would like for others in the institution to feel as welcomed and comfortable as I did.

      I feel that Chick-Fil-A does not have a place on the COFC campus because their views interfere with the College's support of diversity.

      I work on the College of Charleston campus. We have a large number of gay students, and they need to feel safe and supported in their school environment. The college should close the current Chik-Fil-A that is has as well.

      Hate mongering has to stop- everywhere and yes, even in corporate America.
