(State Journal-Register) — Student government members at the University of Illinois Springfield held off Sunday on supporting a proposal to bring a Chick-fil-A restaurant to campus.
The Student Government Association board voted to create a task force to study potential restaurants – including Chick-fil-A – that could come to the university.
About 15 students attended Sunday’s meeting to protest the restaurant proposal. They say the company has given financial support to anti-gay organizations.
Chick-fil-A’s founder, S. Truett Cathy, is known for his religious values, including keeping the restaurants closed on Sundays.
The family has contributed money, mostly through the WinShape Foundation, which it controls, to various Christian and pro-family causes.
