Calif. School Rejects 'Anti-Gay' Food Donation

One of the largest restaurant chains in America offered to raise money for the Ventura (California) High School football booster club, but the principal forbid involvement by the "anti-gay" Chick-fil-A because the company CEO is a Christian man who believes natural marriage is Biblical.
“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.”
-- Val Wyatt, Ventura High School Principal

“We value inclusivity and diversity on our campus and all of our events and activities are going to adhere to our mission,” Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga said.

The booster club expected to raise about $1,600 for the football team as the Ventura Chick-fil-A restaurant volunteered to donate the 200 meals. The Ventura location has already donated $21,000 to Ventura schools.

The club helps pay for everything from food to uniforms for the players and does not charge students to play football. Michelle Cisneros and her daughter say they were so outraged by the principal’s decision, they complained to the school officials.

From "California's Ventura High School Scraps Chick-Fil-A From Fundraiser, Citing Chain's Gay Marriage Stance" by Curtis M. Wong, The Huffington Post 9/12/14

A California high school has nixed a student-run booster club's plans to sell Chick-fil-A sandwiches during a back-to-school night because of the restaurant chain's controversial stance on same-sex marriage.

It isn't the first that Chick-fil-A has prompted outcry in an educational setting. In 2012, the student government at North Carolina's Elon University voted 35-11 to ask the school's food vendor, Aramark, to find another restaurant to take the fast food chicken chain's place, the Times-News reports.

Similarly, St. Mary's College in Maryland and North Carolina's Davidson College have both opted against serving Chick-fil-A products at school events.

From "School bans 'offensive' Chick-fil-A sandwiches" by Todd Starnes, 9/12/14

This is a classic example of those preaching inclusivity and diversity being the least inclusive and diverse of all.

A few days before the back-to-school event, the principal broke the news to the booster club. She said her “main reason” for banning Chick-fil-A was because she did not want an outside organization to sell or advertise during the event.

“I work really hard to keep Ventura High School from being a marketplace for all kinds of vendors to come to the campus and reap profit,” she told the newspaper.

Well, dear. That’s a bit disingenuous. Chick-fil-A was not making a single penny. They were giving all the proceeds to the booster club. Period.
