The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) applauds Rider University’s stand against Chick-fil-A’s LGBT+ discrimination.

By removing Chick-fil-A as a restaurant possibility on it’s campus, Rider University in New Jersey, a civilian college, shows the courage that the U.S. Air Force Academy, a military institution, couldn’t.

MRFF insisted that the same standard of equality be upheld at the United States Air Force Academy by demanding that a senior executive from Chick-fil-A not be invited to speak at their National Character & Leadership Symposium (NCLS).

However, USAFA did not have the guts to stand up against Chick-fil-A’s LGBT+ discrimination by inviting Rodney Bullard, Vice President of Corporate Social Responsibility for Chick-fil-A, Inc. and Executive Director of the Chick-fil-A Foundation.

A Christian Dean at Rider University taking the drastic action of resigning due to Chick-fil-A’s removal from Rider’s campus restaurant possibilities, shows how thoroughly entwined Chick-fil-A is with Fundamentalist Christianity.

If only the United States Air Force Academy had the same principles of equality as Rider University.

    All Rider University is showing is how bigoted they are against Christians. If gay students at Rider do not want to eat there then they do not have to go there, while those students, which was the majority said they wanted a Chick Fil-a on campus get screwed.

    I guess that if a restaurant corporation that supports the slaughtering of innocent babies in the womb would be welcomed then on campus.

    Rider is just showing they are only concerned about the minority on campus instead of the majority of students who voted for Chick Fil-a.

    Zion, where is your proof about them being bigoted? Slaughtering of innocent babies? Yeah, about the slaughter of babies after they come out of the womb due to poverty, hunger, lack of good sanitation, good water, lack of affordable/free education, lack of good paying jobs, etc?

    Well that victory was short lived by Mr. Weinstein.

    Blocked from some schools, Chick-fil-A still thrives on campuses across the country
