Trinity University will not be removing Chick-fil-A from its campus dining hall despite students rallying for the Texas school to drop the company, according to Campus Reform.

The school’s student government previously voted unanimously to remove the restaurant from school property because students felt that the restaurant’s traditional Christian values was a “drastic assault on [LGBTQ] students.”

Tess Coody-Anders, the school’s vice president for strategic communications and marketing, sent an email to students notifying them that their vote effectively means nothing.

The student resolution read, “Trinity’s values of diversity and inclusion and Chick-fil-a’s values regarding the LGBT+ community are mutually exclusive.”

“We do not make vendor decisions based on their political or religious beliefs,” the message read in part. The communication added that the school considers “utilization, variety of options, vendor performance, and campus-wide feedback” when selecting vendor offerings on the school’s San Antonio campus.

The email added, “Based on these criteria, Chick-fil-A appears to be a preferred vendor by students and the broader Trinity community.”

Sen. Claire Carlson told the school paper that it’s only natural that people should feel “uncomfortable” on the campus as a result of Chick-fil-A.

“Obviously [the presence of Chick-fil-A] has the potential to make a lot of people feel uncomfortable on campus, and also it looks really bad for Trinity in the context of recruiting potential students who may be a part of the LGBTQ community,” Carlson complained.

Isaiah Mitchell, chapter president of the Young Conservatives of Texas, told Campus Reform that outrage is on the rise.

“The leftists here have the advantage of outrage,” Mitchell said. “It’s not valid, but it’s an advantage we don’t have because we understand that the presence of Chick-fil-A doesn’t harm anybody. They don’t realize that.”

    Not sure why a Christian University would want potential students who may be a part of the LGBTQ community.

      Don’t like Chik-Fil-A? Here’s a novel idea- DON’T EAT THERE! Simple as that!

    Sen. Clare Carson ought to keep her bullshit remarks out of things that don’t concern her–must be up for re-election in 2020.

    As for the students, don’t like Chick-fil-A then get your food elsewhere. You don’t run the school and wiser people have spoken. Grow up and get used to losing, you are going to lose more, soon.

    Finally, a University run by adults. They are not turning the asylum over to the inmates. Trinity University is to be congratulated for educating the minority element that they do NOT HAVE THE right to dictate the rest of us. This is a lesson for the student government members in adulthood!!!!!!

    If the presence of Chik-Fil-A on campus makes you uncomfortable to the point you concentrate on them instead of your studies – LEAVE. Make room for the students whose applications for admittance to the college were turned down in favor of your application. The ones that aren’t constantly triggered and enjoy a good chicken sandwich.

      A university here in NC, I forget which one, went through the exact same thing a few years back while Obama was president and much to my surprise the university president basically responded like Trinity. Told the students that the university contracts for this stuff and they don’t get a vote!!! Tough ! About time the grownups in this country took control from the pablum suckers.

    If a chicken sandwich shop makes a person feel uncomfortable, maybe they need to go back home, and grow up and mature some more, before they force their self on the the rest of humanity. I have never seen a sandwich shop hurt anyone. And I have been around a long time.

    Why is it that the LBGT community has this idea that because they are what they are, the rest should bend over (Pun intended !!!)
    They have the same right as we have but they put themselves out of the equation.
    It is the same with the Muslim community. Act normal do your thing, but don’t leave your shit on my doorstep as I am not leaving mine on yours.
    You are who and what you are and so am I, but I do NOT think that I am ENTITLED !!! Grow Up !!!

    I went to the chick-fil-A restaurant in Gulfport Mississippi. There was a black man working there, a black woman working there and a black gay man working the cash register. I don’t know what people are protesting or complaining about.

    These two faced hypocritical waste are exactly why I am no longer a so-called christian. The bible gave a flawless example of what happens to gays in Sodom and Gomorrah. But they think they are so precious and special, that they can rewrite their gods laws and include them, instead of burning down their habitats. I quit believing because of pathological liars who claim one thing, then turn and live exactly the opposite. Like when a kid rips you off for $5, and instead of turning the other cheek and forgiving, a christian has him arrested. It seems christians today would rather follow Caesars laws and pass on gods. Just goes to show how delusional they are, and how very little belief they have in their own convictions.
