Students at Rider University, a private university in New Jersey, were recently given a survey of possible new dining options for their meal plan.  In the past, the survey included Chick-Fil-A, the fast food chicken restaurant that makes delicious chicken sandwiches and uses poorly spelling cows to spread its chicken love.

Not this year.

The chicken restaurant has found itself under fire because of its values, which are stated in its corporate motto: “To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us.”  So, Rider University omitted this fast food chain from their options “based on the company’s record widely perceived to be in opposition to the LGBTQ community.”

Get this: they claim they were doing this to be “faithful to our values of inclusion.”

Give me a minute while I pick myself off the floor, because that’s really funny.  It seems that excluding them from a list of food options is, hear me out here, “exclusive.”

If you date a liberal, do they call “punching you in the face” a “kiss?”   Because they seem to use words to indicate the opposite of what they are actually doing.  As Erick Erickson tweeted, The most popular fast food restaurant in America cannot open on a college campus because its owners are Christians.”

Let that sink in.

And remember this the next time liberals pretend they are tolerant and accepting.

In the meantime, go out and have a Chick-Fil-A sandwich for lunch if you’re fortunate enough to live near one of their restaurants.  While you’re there, eat some nuggets for the students at Rider University.
