California College Campus Votes to Ban Popular Restaurant Over Religious Views

You can’t preach tolerance, diversity, and inclusion and also ban people whose religious beliefs offend you.

One of the nation’s most popular eateries is under attack in California, where otherwise “tolerant” “social justice warriors” are foaming at the mouth.

As you may have guessed, we are once again witnessing a financial attack on popular chicken restaurant Chick-fil-A over the religious views of the company’s President.  This time, however, there are real concerns over exactly how this decision will impact our inalienable right to religious freedom.

Faculty at California Polytechnic State University recently voted to ban Chick-fil-A from campus, accusing the restaurant’s charity arm of being “in violation of our values” and suggesting that Chick-fil-A’s presence on campus is similar to having pornography or a Hooters establishment at the school. The university president, however, is expected to veto the faculty vote.

Cal Poly’s Academic Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of blacklisting a Chick-fil-A restaurant from the school’s San Luis Obispo campus, due to the company’s owner supposedly having a “perceived opposition to the LGBTQ community,” according to KCBX News.

One of the proponents of the ban made several incendiary statements regarding Chick-fil-A, including comparing the restaurant to pornography.

Thomas Gutierrez, the Academic Senate’s vice-chair who introduced the resolution, compared Chick-fil-A to pornography and Hooters in his attempt to explain why the fast-food restaurant was not welcomed on campus, according to a report by Mustang News.

“We don’t sell pornography in the bookstore and we don’t have a Hooters on campus,” said Gutierrez, “We already pre-select those kind of things based on our existing values — this is a similar thing. The difference is we’re actually profiting from this. So our money, every dollar a student is spending at Chick-fil-A, is going to these causes that are in violation of our values.”

In a strikingly oxymoronic bit of “logic”, Gutierrez went on to tout the university’s commitment to “diversity and inclusion”.

And while all of this anger and vitriol certainly gave Gutierrez something to rage about, it appears as though the vote to ban Chick-fil-A will remain a symbolic one.

After the vote to blacklist Chick-fil-A, the resolution was reportedly sent to Cal Poly president Jeffery Armstrong, who will then make the final decision.

“Nevertheless, I think it’s important to go into the public record that the faculty feel this way on this fairly timely issue,” said Gutierrez, acknowledging President Armstrong’s apparent decision to keep Chick-fil-A on campus.

Boy Scouts Now Forcing Kids to Earn ‘Diversity’ Badge Featuring Anti-White Training

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge.

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge pushing the radical gay/transgender agenda with training that will include anti-white courses to be able to earn Eagle Scout status. The Boy Scouts long ago went full woke, but this new “diversity” badge amps that up to full speed. The BSA added that it will include information about George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor in its indoctrination of boys and girls. In its announcement, the organization insisted that it “has not been as brave as we should have been” to address evil white supremacy. Oh, but to put up at ease, the BSA insisted this isn’t about left-wing politics… even though it is. “The Boy Scouts of America stands with Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter,” the organization said in a letter on the BSA’s blog, Scoutingwire. “This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.” For some inexplicable reason, the BSA also reiterated that it stands against Civil War history, too, in order to “ensure that symbols of oppression are not in use today or in the future.” “We will also continue to listen more, learn more and do more to promote a culture in which every person feels that they belong, are respected and are valued in Scouting, in their community and across America,” the scouting organization added. Then there is the Scouts’ gay problem. As CNN noted, “Court testimony released last year shows that over 7,800 former scout leaders are accused of sexually abusing 12,000 scouts over 72 years.” Seriously, America, if you haven’t removed your children from the Boy Scouts already, now is the time. It is…

New York Gay Pride Parade’s ‘Shameful’ Ban of Gay Police Officers

The New York City Police union is blasting the city’s gay pride parade officials for banning gay police officers.

The New York City Police union is blasting the city’s gay pride parade officials for banning gay police officers from participating in the event. Detective Brian Downey, the president of the New York Police Department’s Gay Officers Action League slammed the New York City Pride Parade’s decision to un-invite gay police officers. “Their response to activist pressure is to take the low road by preventing their fellow community members from celebrating their identities and honoring the shared legacy of the Stonewall Riots,” Detective Downey said, according to Fox News. The detective also said it was “demoralizing” for the pride parade to ban gay cops. He also attacked the pride officials for calling his men “law enforcement exhibitors” instead of referring to them as New York Police officers. “The idea of officers being excluded is disheartening and runs counter to our shared values of inclusion and tolerance,” Detective Sophia Mason added. “That said, we’ll still be there to ensure traffic safety and good order during this huge, complex event.” The gay Fire Department group also slammed the pride organization’s exclusion of the police. “The sense of safety that law enforcement is meant to provide can instead be threatening, and at times dangerous, to those in our community who are most often targeted with excessive force and/or without reason,” the pride group said in a statement. The pride parade will still be held only online this year due to New York’s continued wild panic over the coronavirus. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
