Several student protests can’t keep Chick-fil-A away from school

The recent allegations against the establishment backing traditional marriage groups caused protests to make their way to the college campus.
Some students who are a part of the LGBT community have claimed that the restaurant has made them feel unsafe. However, a survey among students on campus showed that 85 percent wanted to keep the restaurant. Obviously, I think it was an isolated group of students who felt “threatened.”
It is quite ridiculous to find a fast food joint threatening, but the article on Christian Post’s website goes on to talk about how other students have been the people threatening the LGBT community. Some students have had food thrown at them for protesting. Others have received threatening notes telling them to “stop campaigning against Chick-fil-A or else.”
Regardless of what you believe or what eating establishments you want to support, this behavior by some of UNM’s students is unacceptable. There is no reason to threaten somebody over a chicken sandwich. However, this should also show that the real culprit in this disagreement isn’t Chick-fil-A, but the students' classmates.
