Allow UCLA to Back out of Lease with Chick-Fil-A

Ritea said UCLA does not support Cathy’s position on gay marriage but cannot revoke the new lease with the company because it is a binding contract, he said.

“UCLA is dedicated to everyone’s right to free speech,” he said. “We expect that some people will express their disapproval (regarding the deal with Chick-fil-A).”

This issue is not about "free speech" -  It's that he contributes to hate groups!

Cathy funds The National Christian Foundation through WinShape.  "The National Christian Foundation funds "The Call" led by Lou Engle. In 2010, Engle brought The Call to Uganda, where the legislature was already considering the infamous “Kill the Gays Bill” – authored and sponsored by MP David Bahati, a member of The Family. Here's a quote regarding that bill from the NY Times, "A parliamentary committee has 45 days to debate the bill before sending it back to Parliament or asking for an extension. Mr. Bahati said that he was confident the bill would pass, but that if it did not, he had a Plan B: hope for a Republican victory in November." http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02... I am not a liberal or a gay and it shouldn't matter. The issue is not "freedom of speech" it's his affiliation with groups that promote hate and intolerance. People think they are supporting "traditional marriage" but they are supporting hate groups.
