Feathers have been ruffled at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln over a proposed Chick-fil-A outpost in the student union.

“I’m not going to give any of my gay dollars to Chick-fil-A,” one irate student told the Daily Nebraskan.

The university recently announced that Chick-fil-A would be one of two new dining options available to students – causing angst among some LGBTQIA+ folks.

“This does not make me feel welcome as a gay student on campus,” student Joe John wrote in a lengthy newspaper letter titled, “I will support my community by not eating Chick-fil-A.”

The newspaper reports that students have accused the family-owned, fast food restaurant of being “homophobic” and having a “long history of anti-LGBT rhetoric.”

“At a time when the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has repeatedly emphasized stressing inclusivity on campus, I find it awfully hypocritical of them to place a business like Chick-fil-A in the union. Chick-fil-A has a long history of anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and will be just two floors below the LGBTQA Resource Center,” he wrote.

John was also perturbed because the family-owned company donated money to Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

To be clear, Chick-fil-A is not hate chicken. They have never discriminated against people because of their sexual orientation. Anyone suggesting otherwise is flat-out lying.

The Daily Nebraskan reports the university’s LGBTQIA+ resource center director may consider a boycott of the campus eatery. But the newspaper reports that unlikely because of the state’s conservative population.

A conservative student at the university called in to the Todd Starnes Radio Show and dismissed the attacks on Chick-fil-A – saying some people were just trying to find something to be offended by.

“The university itself is always leaning towards the left,” “AJ from Lincoln” said. “As a conservative on campus, I feel like it’s hard for me to fit in with the university.”

“AJ from Lincoln” also said the haters are going against Nebraska’s inclusive values.

“Going after a company like Chick-fil-A – just because of their religious views – I don’t think that’s fair,” he said.

It seems to me that if certain students suffer indigestion at the sight of a Chick-fil-A, perhaps they should consider dining somewhere else.

As for the rest of you folks at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln – I say eat more chicken!
