Students double-sizing their orders of intolerance

Chick-fil-A food orderChick-fil-A is under fire on another couple of college campuses – and a political commentator says the reasoning is getting more and more bizarre.

The Academic Senate at Cal Poly – a school consistently listed among the "smartest" public colleges in America – last week voted overwhelmingly to urge the university to end its contract with Chick-fil-A, which has been on campus for 25 years. Along with that vote, the student government passed a resolution saying the company's stance on same-sex "marriage" is "inconsistent with our values of diversity and inclusivity" and that its presence "negatively impacts campus climate."

According to the Sacramento Bee, Chick-fil-A has no history of discrimination at Cal Poly. And the school administration, in a bit of a swipe at Chick-fil-A, says it has no plans to boot the restaurant from campus, saying through a spokesman the school doesn't "believe in responding to intolerance with intolerance."

Political commentator and radio host Jeff Crank says it makes a person almost roll their eyes. "Sadly, we're growing more and more accustomed to this intolerance of the left," he tells OneNewsNow.

Meanwhile, student leaders at Trinity University in San Antonio are upset, not only because Chick-fil-A's ownership – in their private lives – believes in natural marriage, but because the company donates money to other groups like The Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

"Trinity's values of diversity and inclusion and Chick-fil-A's values regarding the LGBT+ community are mutually exclusive," stated the resolution passed last week unanimously by the Student Government Association at Trinity.


Crank says it's gotten so bad that those making such demands don't see the double standard they're demonstrating.

"… The irony of it [is] that they're upset because of the owner of a company's views on same-sex marriage, because they believe it would be intolerant to not be inclusive of gay people who want to get married," he explains. "Yet they exhibit this terrible intolerance on Chick-fil-A."

But what really worries Crank is that the intolerance is leaving college campuses and making its way to main street. Last week, for example, a Pennsylvania lawmaker belittled and threatened to dox peaceful pro-life prayer warriors outside a Planned Parenthood.

"It really beckons all good citizens, all good Americans who believe in diversity of thought and who believe and support the First Amendment, to stand up," says Crank.

In that latter example, the bullying tactics of Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims were condemned not only by pro-life groups but also by a Catholic archbishop, a U.S. senator – and the father of some teenage girls the Democratic lawmaker had harassed.
