In case you missed it, the media has become aware that some Duquesne University students are making good use of their American freedom by protesting the installation of a Chick-fil-a at this Pittsburgh-based Catholic University. Why? Apparently not if you’re too fragile to go anywhere that someone might disagree with you. The campus’s LGBTQ groups are afraid that it will “violate their safe space” if the Christian restaurant is let on their (Catholic) campus.
Duquesne alum and Retired Army Ranger Sean Parnell has a few things to say about the subject.
It’s a crying shame that students are entering their college career talking about what those around them can do for them. What about that whole “ask not what your country can do for you” thing? Somehow, the entitled students of this age think it’s ok to orchestrate the lives of everyone in their line of sight in order to make themselves feel good.
What about the students that like Chick-fil-a? The restaurant has never said anything that would insinuate or encourage violence toward anyone, the CEO and board have only made their own personal opinions known. I’ve been a patron of this chain more times than I’d like to admit, and never once had the cheery employee behind the window asked about my sexual orientation before surrendering my waffle fries. I have, however, said “thank you” more times than necessary, just to see how many times they’ll say “my pleasure.” In case you’re wondering, it’s pretty much limitless.
The company is universally known for its kindness, outreach, cleanliness, and excellent work enviroment, but since it disagree’s with these students, they plan to try and get it banned. This isn’t even taking into account that the university espouses biblical principles, which any LGBTQ person would be in violation of. Perhaps those students should have thought about where they would feel more at home before they chose a university that is displaying that pesky and style cramping bible stuff around everywhere.
Apparently, Fascism is the new free speech and even our chicken and fries might end up collateral damage.
