LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Some students at two Kansas universities want Chick-fil-A removed from the campuses because of the fast-food chain's stance on gay marriage.

Online petitions began at Wichita State University and the University of Kansas after Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy said he opposed gay marriage. Some groups are boycotting Chick-fil-A, while others are supporting the fast-food chain.

The petition at Wichita State had about 530 signatures early Friday. The Kansas petition had nearly 1,800 signatures. Another petition to keep Chick-fil-A at Kansas had about 560 signatures.

Wichita State officials say if they hear of anyone being refused service at Chick-fil-A because of sexual orientation, the school would address the situation.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/MPjdz7 ) Kansas officials say they are discussing the issue with people on campus and off.
