Public school refuses Chick-fil-A’s 200 donated sandwiches because chain founder is Christian

A football booster club is putting the chicken sandwiches away after a California school banned them from selling Chick-fil-A meals at fundraising events.

Principle of Ventura County High School, Val Wyatt, banned the club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at “back-to-school” night because of the company’s conservative view on gay marriage, CBSLA.com reported.

“With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus,” Wyatt told the Ventura County Star.

Ironically, School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga said the school takes pride in “inclusivity and diversity” on the campus.

Although Ventura’s Chick-fil-A graciously committed to donating 200 meals, which would help raise money for school sports, they were refused.

CBSLA.com reported that the Chick-fil-A has donated over $21,000 to various schools across Ventura.

Not everyone was happy about the ban, and some parents complained to the school district.

“Everybody is embraced,” local Michelle Cisneros said. “And Chick-fil-A should have been allowed to be here.”

Twitter users weren’t happy either. Here’s how they reacted:
