Remove Chick-fil-A from the University of South Alabama food court

President Gordon Moulton, Vice-President of Student Affairs Dr. John W. Smith, and Dean of Students Dr. Michael A. Mitchell at the University of South Alabama, we are asking you to remove Chick-fil-A from the University of South Alabama Student Center food court.

This quote is from the 2012-2013 University of South Alabama Lowdown, which is handed out each year at the university. "USA Spirit There are certain pervading animating principles that are essential for a community of scholars to maintain if they are to be dedicated to personal and academic excellence. Becoming a member of the University of South Alabama’s community necessitates that the spirit of a truly civilized community be fully embraced. As a member of the University community... I will uphold the spirit of diversity which celebrates differences and discourages bigotry... a commitment to this ideal affirms support for equal rights regardless of one’s age, sex, race, religion, disability, ethnic heritage, socio-economic status, political, social or other affiliation."

This quote is from the current Lowdown, yet the university allows Chick-fil-A operate on campus. Not only does the CEO of Chick-fil-A strongly oppose gay marriage, the company has donated millions to anti-gay organizations. One of the groups receiving donations is The Family Research Council which classified as a hate group.

Please set an example and show students that the university does indeed celebrate diversity by removing Chick-fil-A from campus.

Why is this important?

According to the University's yearly handbook, The Lowdown, "USA Spirit There are certain pervading animating principles that are essential for a community of scholars to
maintain if they are to be dedicated to personal and academic excellence. Becoming a member of the University of South Alabama’s community necessitates that the spirit of a truly civilized community be fully embraced. As a member of the University community ... I will uphold the spirit of diversity which celebrates differences and discourages bigotry.
... a commitment to this ideal affirms support for equal rights regardless of one’s age, sex, race, religion, disability, ethnic heritage, socio-economic status, political, social or other affiliation."

This quote is from the current Lowdown, yet the university allows Chick-fil-A to operate on campus. Not only does the CEO of Chick-fil-A strongly oppose gay marriage, the company has donated millions to anti-gay organizations. One of the groups receiving donations is The Family Research Council, which classified as a hate group. This chain needs to be removed from the campus. The beliefs and donations of this company are in direct opposition of the USA spirit which is to celebrate diversity and discourage bigotry.
