Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) threw his support behind Chick-fil-A this week after reports emerged that some students at the University of Notre Dame voiced opposition to the school considering making the chain a part of its on-campus dining.

Students wrote a letter to the school's student-run newspaper published earlier this month, titled "Keep Chick-fil-A away," that pushed back against the idea of the chain being offered on campus, citing "serious ethical concerns."

The fast-food chain has come under fire in recent years for donations made by its charitable foundation to anti-LGBT groups.

Lindsey Graham declares win against cancel culture as Notre Dame OKs on-campus Chick-fil-A

  Lindsey Graham declares win against cancel culture as Notre Dame OKs on-campus Chick-fil-A Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) declared a ‘big win’ on Thursday after the University of Notre Dame cleared an on-campus Chick-fil-A amid pushback from students. Graham hailed the university's decision and applauded the "patriots" who stood against "Cancel Culture." "Big win! Great to hear Chick-fil-A is coming to Notre Dame. Well done to all the patriots at Notre Dame who stood up for Chick-fil-A and against Cancel Culture. Hope New York will follow your lead," Graham tweeted, apparently referring to New York state lawmakers who want to keep the chain's restaurant out of state rest stops.

Republican students respond by creating a petition to keep the chicken fast- food chain on campus . Some members of Kansas University's faculty have described Chick - fil - A as a 'bastion of bigotry' and called for it to be removed from campus . The controversy began heating up when members of the 'Sexuality & Gender Diversity Faculty and Staff Council, complained about the university's move this summer to 'deepen its relationship' with the nation's most popular fast- food chain .

Lindsey Graham slammed New York state Democrats over their attempt to stop Chick - fil - A from operating in rest stops due to concerns over the company’s religious-based opposition to gay marriage. Despite continued controversy over the religious beliefs of the company’s leadership, Chick - fil - A remains an immensely popular company and was recently rated as the country’s top fast- food chain for the seventh year in a row by the American Customer Satisfaction Index. “ Chick - fil - A is a lawful business with a great product,” Graham concluded in his Facebook post.

The students wrote that they believe "a variety of other restaurants would better fit Notre Dame's mission and our student body's needs," while also calling for "student and faculty leaders to stop catering Chick-fil-A at campus events."

The letter in The Observer appears to only have two student signatures. But a second letter signed by students and faculty similarly voicing opposition to Chick-fil-A has racked up nearly 200 signatures, according to Fox News, and has been circulated by a number of conservative media outlets over the past several days.

The letters both cite a post the school made on its campus dining page on Instagram in May that said it was "conducting a a comprehensive dining plan and is considering a variety of future restaurant options, including Chick-Fil-A."

Chick - fil - A ’s decision to cave to liberal demands has angered its Christian customer fan base, while earning it no points with critics. The Atlanta, Georgia-based company has been known as much for its fried chicken sandwiches as for its public embrace of Christian values – which led to boycotts and hostility from LGBTQ groups and social justice activists, but translated into growth and profits driven by loyal fans of both the food and the message.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Graham called it "disappointing to hear" that some students and faculty at the school "want to ban Chick-fil-A from doing business on campus because they disagree with the values held by the Chick-fil-A founders."

"I want everyone in South Carolina and across America to know I have Chick fil-A's back. I hope we don't have to, but I will go to war for the principles Chick fil-A stands for," he said. "Great food. Great service. Great values. God bless Chick fil-A!"

Over the past several years, Chick-fil-A has seen efforts to turn its franchises away from a number of locations, ranging from universities to airports, for its charitable foundation's history of donations to anti-LGBT groups.

It also came under scrutiny over comments its president made in 2012 about the company supporting "the biblical definition of the family unit."

Earlier this week, New York state lawmakers made headlines for seeking to keep the chain's restaurants from state rest stops.

Notre Dame 99-to-0: No. 14 Kyle Hamilton, junior safety, preseason All-American, top 2022 draft prospect .
There is no debate about who Notre Dame's best player is, and in his final season with the Irish, junior safety Kyle Hamilton should prove that every week.Despite that late recruiting rise, the Irish pursued Hamilton relatively early in the cycle, before that ratings bump, thanks to a tip from a friend of former safeties coach Terry Joseph when he was still coaching at North Carolina, closer to Hamilton’s home of Atlanta. Joseph arrived at Notre Dame in the winter of 2017 and began his pursuit of Hamilton in earnest halfway through Hamilton’s junior year. He had shined on the field, but that camp boost had not yet occurred.
