The University of Kansas

Keep the Chick-Fil-A franchise that currently operates on KU's campus open.

    1. Petition by

      Thomas J.

      Overland Park, KS

Chick-Fil-A is a restaurant dedicated to serving high quality chicken sandwiches and other delicious foods. The personal beliefs of Chick-Fil-A's executives have no bearing whatsoever on the restaurant's ability to provide fast and affordable meals to KU students. The place for social change is at the ballot box, not the fast food restaurant. Do not deprive students of a tasty meal because of the personal beliefs of a few.

Futhermore, the Chick-Fil-A and its executives have a Constitutionally protected right to proclaim their opinions - no matter how popular or unpopular these opinions may be.  Chick-Fil-A has done nothing that violates exisitng anti-discrimination laws.  As a public institution, the University of Kansas has no right to ban Chick-Fil-A from operating on campus based solely on the company's religious and political stances.  

If students at KU decide to boycott Chick-Fil-A, then let them.  However, this decision should not be forced upon the student body as a whole.  Instead, let the free market decide whether Chick-FIl-A can remain profitable in spite of its views.
