Remove hate!! Remove Chick-Fil-A!!

Judging by the homophobic words and actions of top Chick-Fil-A executives, and the $2 million donated by the company to homophobic organizations such as the Marriage & Family Foundation in 2010 alone, it is clear that Chick-Fil-A does not represent the values embraced by Southern Illinois University. Allowing such a bigoted and hateful organization to continue to operate in the SIU Student Center runs counter to the spirit of equality.

Furthermore, Chick-Fil-A has a long history of bullying small business owners. If you needed another reason to get behind this petition, here it is:

      A company that uses patron’s money to support hate groups of any kind, is not only devious, but should not be located in a place of learning. These hate groups promote bullying and worse, homosexuality is a natural part of human evolution, to promote hate against one class of humanity causes pain to all of humanity.Why is this important to you?

      i think any school that doesn't want chick fil a there in order to further support the diversity of their school should be allowed that.

      There are plenty of GLBTQQIA friendly businesses we could support instead. Time for a change!

      Chick-Fil-A has a right to give money to whatever organizations it wishes. But we should not keep it on campus, knowing that it gives prolifically to organizations that seek to take rights from homosexual students and alumni. It makes many of our students less welcome on campus.
