Huntsville Students Want Campus Chick-Fil-A Closed

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Some students at the University of Alabama in Huntsville are calling for the campus Chick-fil-A restaurant to close after a company executive's comments caused an uproar in the debate over gay marriage.
WAAY-TV reports that members of UA Huntsville's Gay-Straight Alliance want the restaurant shut down.
GSA Founder and President Heather Shelton said having the restaurant on campus is not consistent with the university's anti-discrimination policy. She said the group plans to take up the issue with Sodexo, which operates the campus Chick-fil-A.
Another student, Adelle Sutton, disagrees. Sutton said Chick-fil-A is a Christian company, and that people should be respectful of everyone's opinions.
Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy told the Baptist Press this month that the Atlanta-based company was "guilty as charged" for backing "the biblical definition of a family."
