A New Orleans high school has turned down a free Chick-fil-A meal offered to teachers due to the company’s views.
The College Football Playoff Foundation offered teachers throughout the city a free Chick-fil-A meal as part of its way to leave a positive impact on the community, WWL-TV reported. New Orleans is hosting the College Football Playoff National Championship in January.
New Orleans’ Lusher High School declined the free food.
“Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-Fil-A at an employee lunch. The #1 rule at Lusher is to ‘Be Kind’ and we live this motto every day,” Lusher principal Steven Corbett told WWL. “Chick-Fil-A has been politically outspoken about its views, and we feel it is not part of Lusher’s culture of kindness and community.”
“Any time there’s an organization that is anti-LGBTQ and has efforts to infringe upon their rights, we thought it was important to make sure that we were supporting and standing up for our community,” he said.
The high school’s Twitter feed posted the WDSU interview alongside the hashtag “#NoPlaceForHate.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
