In the history of the world, there are some major events that define culture. We mark time with events and references like “after divinity” “post-revolutionary” “post-modern” and now for the liberals “post-election.” From the day those election results came out and the stunned millennials discovered they weren’t getting their way, their poor, entitled little lives were changed forever.
There were so many tortured liberal souls after the precious Hillary lost that universities across the nation had to take days off and reschedule tests. And who can blame them? I wouldn’t have wanted to deal with that bunch of whining brats either. There were “safe spaces” created where the traumatized underachievers were able to cry out their feelings without fear of logic or reason being used to belittle their precious feelings. Many conservatives thought this was a ridiculous misuse of real estate, but freedom is freedom, and while we indulge a little in poking fun at them, people do have a right to be stupid.
Now, though, Duquesne University students have pushed the envelope even further. They’re not only requiring safe spaces but saying that there can be no spaces that they consider unsafe. There are a few problems with this; first is that I’m curious who gets to decide what are “unsafe spaces”? Is it just the loudest voice? When was the last time in a room full of people when the loudest person was the most intelligent? Also, the idea of a “safe space” sounds good except for the fact that the term refers only to areas where no debate is allowed, and liberal “tolerance” is enforced . . . through intolerance of conservatives. There is all the difference in the world between having “safe spaces” and insisting that the entire world adhere to your criteria of safe.
The troubling issue at present is the installation of a Chick-fil-a, and it’s outspoken Christian values. Before you read what the students at the university have to say, I would remind you that Chick-fil-a and it’s CEO Dan Cathy don’t say that they don’t want to serve those who disagree with them (unlike, say, Starbucks has with straight people), they’ve just made known their personal and company values.
Via Washington Times:
“Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students.
Niko Martini, a student senator at the Pittsburgh university, filed a petition with the student government asking the school to reconsider the inclusion of Chick-fil-A in its Options Food Court.
‘Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights,’ Mr. Martini said in a statement to the student newspaper, The Duke. ‘I think it’s imperative the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion.’
Duquesne is a Catholic university, and the church teaches that all homosexual acts are ‘intrinsically evil.’
Rachel Coury, president of the Duquesne gay-straight alliance, said she fears Chick-fil-A will roll back efforts to create a safe environment for gay students on campus.
‘I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community, ‘Ms. Coury told The Duke. ‘So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A … maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk.’
She said it would mean a lot to the LGBT community ‘if someone could make a statement to eliminate the fear of being marginalized by having this business on campus.'”
So, to re-cap, the students at a Catholic University that outwardly opposes everything gay are saying that the school shouldn’t let a Christian fast food chain on campus because it might make the people who engage in anti-Catholic activity feel unsafe. Anyone ever think that maybe they shouldn’t feel accepted and at home in a Catholic school? Perhaps this is exactly what’s supposed to happen when you enroll in a school that claims to follow the bible; ya feel left out when you don’t follow the bible. That’s kind of the point of a school; to educate as to what they consider to be important. Schools like Duquesne University are in danger of making it look like the inmates are running the asylum, and maybe in some ways they are, if they’re listening to the delicate little gays and liberals who like to make up the rules as they go along and torture everyone else with them.
Unfortunately for those intolerant of the university’s biblical standards, the school has decided to move forward with the offensive eatery. Looks like some students are going to have to avert their eyes and learn how to use a microwave because the cows and their wounding messages are coming, like it or not.
