Complaints about Chick-fil-A in a New York University cafeteria, the only location in the Big Apple that serves the fast food linked to antigay forces, have been limited.
The New York Times reports on the muted reaction at the campus food court to the Christian chain under fire for supporting the marriage conferences presented by an antigay Pennsylvania group.
"At NYU, JJ Bishop-Boros, a member and former officer of the university's Queer Union, said the group had decided against pressing a boycott 'that focuses only on Chick-fil-A and gay marriage.' Instead, he said, Queer Union hopes to meet with other campus groups to examine the practices of each food distributor on campus, from the wages they pay workers to environmental issues," reported the Times.
A university spokesman said that no complaints about the restaurant have been presented to the university senate for debate. Chick-fil-A has been part of the NYU food court in Manhattan since 2004, but entrance is limited to students and others with university ID cards.
