USM prof: ‘Anti-gay’ Chick-fil-A needs to be removed from campus
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 08/03/2012 10:23:06 AM PDT by oliverdarcy

A University of Southern Mississippi (USM) professor is demanding the faculty Senate reevaluate the university’s support for "organizations that are anti-gay" including the popular fast-food chain Chick-fil-A.

"We have a nondiscrimination policy at USM that includes sexual orientation and so if we have that policy, I think to live up to that, then we should not be doing anything to support organizations that are anti-gay," associate political science Professor Kate Greene told local NBC affiliate WDAM Channel 3, regarding the Chick-fil-A controversy.

Greene, whose website says she is the “second most senior member” of the political science department, has also requested the issue be taken up by the faculty Senate, the Jackson, Ms., Clarion Ledger, reported on Wednesday.

A spokesperson for USM, however, told Campus Reform on Thursday that the University currently has no plans to remove Chick-fil-A from its campus and that the faculty Senate does not in fact hold jurisdiction over which vendors are allowed on campus.

She probably teaches the same curriculum as Obama did. Equally worthless.

exactly go deface a mosque, go and throw out the muslim groups on campus, go ater muslim businesses until then I look at this as an agenda against Christians or even people like me which don’t go to church but do say a prayer and look at their agenda as sick, perverted and certainly not natural.

We can reproduce they cannot , why is that?

mmmm funny how they never answer that.

One step is to remove all Federal funding from education.

And of course guillotine (figuratively speaking of course) the entire Dept. of Education, and about 90% of all other fedgov agencies, bureaus and departments. The bitter fruit will wither without the water of money and thus enforcement of insane leftist hell-crap.

When is SOMEONE going to stand up and ask point blank, what is anti-gay about CFA?

Absolutely nothing!

What does the COMPANY do that is targeted to harass homosexuals?

Absolutely nothing!

The CEO believes that CFA stay closed on Sunday so his employees can be with their families. All of his employees, regardless of who they sleep with. Because he is a Christian.

If he was a Muslim, believed in executing gays, and told his employees he was closing the store 6 times a day for 20 minutes each time so they could pray to Allah these bigots would have no problem with that. That would be tolerance.

Sad to see that this pathology even reaches down into Southern Mississippi.

Future satirists are going to have a very fertile resource in the "same sex marriage controversy."

This is directly analogous to a "flat earth" exponent, screaming "hate monger," & "earth hater" at a physicist trying to explain how we know that the actual earth orbits the sun.

Anyone who really feels non-judgmental compassion for those biologically dysfunctional, should contemplate what this insanity is likely to trigger. Attitudes on the relevant subjects do not move in the same direction for very extended periods of time. It is over questions of behavior & morality that you really do have a pendulum effect, throughout history.

I assume USM is a state-supported school; if you live in Mississippi, you need to contact your state legislator and demand that this jack-booted fascist professor be removed for her hateful intolerance and callus disregard for freedom of speech.

Ever wonder who is going to usurp your rights, look no further than the leftist who claims everyone else is a threat.

Their actions speak more truthfully to who they are than their words ever could.

OK, USM is MY Alma Mater. I will definitely be writing a letter to Dr. Aubrey Lucas, the interim President. I'm not going to demand he fire her, but remind him that DIVERSITY means allowing all ideas to be represented on campus.

I'll also write a note to Dr. Greene, reminding her that the owner of CFA has every right to express his opinion on a political topic, just as SHE does. She should NOT, however, demand that a company be punished because of the opinion of its owner, or if the foundations and groups supported by the company's charitable contributions go against HER own political ideas.

This is one area where Chick-Fil-A is vulnerable. They are on a lot of campuses, and these administrations will be under tremendous pressure from all the usual suspects to get rid of them.

Then the students who support the First Amendment Rights of the owner of Chick-Fil-A, and the right of the company to support the causes it does, need to stand with the company on their college campuses. They should sign petitions to give to the college administrations, or do stand outs in front of the campus locations, showing their support for the company against the BULLIES who want to deny them the right to do business. They should also make the point that being against homosexual marriage doesn't equal HATE for homosexuals.

They shouldn't allow the vocal minority to control the argument.

Nothing. They claim the company is 'anti-gay' because it has some Charitable Foundations, and supports groups that work to uphold traditional marriage. The owner also gives money to a group that helps people who want to leave the homosexual lifestyle. THAT is considered 'hate' by homosexual activists, hence the accusation of hateful and anti-gay.

“Bitch in wrong state”

Beyoch is chicken, too.

“Campus Reform attempted to contact Greene but a representative from the political science department at USM said she had decided to “lay low” after her previous comments had kicked up controversy was off “camping and whitewater rafting.”

Hey, ya’ll!

Good posts!

My sister was a Phi Mu at Southern, and majored in music.

I was two weeks away from going to USM when I got engaged, and married two months later.

No...wasn’t pregnant...just the fiancee of a Navy pilot who was already in south Texas. It was a “do or die” situation.

So, I “did”. It was war time. ;o)

That was almost 42 years ago.

LOL! I graduated in 1974, moved to the Coast to work, then came back to H'burg, got married in 75, and hubby graduated USM in 1976. After that, we moved away, and haven't lived in MS since.

We hope to move back soon. Our parents are no longer with us, but we both have siblings still in MS, in Jackson, H'burg, and along the Coast from Gulfport to Pascagoula.

Yep, most are cowards. Especially in the South.

In Oregon, many are anarchists, so are real trouble makers.

I guess public sympathy has something to do with it.

Heck...ELF has it’s headquarters in Portland. They are allowed to roam freely, as you would expect.

They have already been designated domestic terrorists, but it doesn’t matter. Just as Oregon is a sanctuary state.

I can’t wait to be able to spend way more time in my blessed red state. ;o)
