The principal of a high school in New Orleans, Louisiana, has rejected an offer of free meals for teachers from Chick-fil-A in solidarity with the LGBTQ community.

Dr. Steven Corbett, principal of Lusher High School, said he turned down the free lunches from the fast food chain as some of its staff members are LGBTQ.

In a statement, seen by 4WWL, Corbett also said the fast food chain's values do not align with the school's.

"Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-Fil-A at an employee lunch," Corbett said. "The #1 rule at Lusher is to 'Be Kind' and we live this motto every day.

Yup! Me too!

Great!  People need to know about the "values" of the family that owns this restaurant chain.  That this happened in Louisiana is even better.   

AnneK:
That school has the right idea.
