Controversy in the cafeteria

Chick-fil-a is sold in the hungry Jack Cafe on Mondays along with Donatos Pizza. Despite the controversy, the sandwiches still remain a popular product.

“I think we are inviting God’s judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say ‘we know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage’ and I pray God’s mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about”, Chick-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy said in an interview over the summer.

The quote by  Cathy, voicing his stance on Gay marriage sparked a nation-wide debate over the controversial subject that has reached the doors of the Oakwood School District.

Whether apathetic or exuberant, the student body is split between those who wish to see a ban on the selling of Chick-Fil-A sandwiches in the cafeteria because of the Christian company’s stance and those who could care less about the subject that was thought to have blown over.

“I don’t agree with where the CEO is putting his money, but it’s his earned money.” David M. (11) said, “He can do whatever he wants with it.”

The Hungry Jack Cafe has been selling the company product for about 5 years.

“I take it personally that they’re selling it at the school because it appears contradictory because while our school supports the 40 assets that teach us to be accepting of differences, they still sell Chick-fil-a.” Rollie F. (9) said, “There are other kids in this school who take it personally that they[the school] won’t take action.”

There has been no mention of a possible ban on the sandwiches, and one is extremely unlikely to happen according to Laura Wahl, manager of food services.
