Students At Elon University Give Chick-Fil-A Its Walking Papers

 

Several colleges have been clucking about booting Chick-fil-A off campus because of its support of anti-gay groups, but it looks like North Carolina’s Elon University is putting its money where its waffle fries used to go.

The school’s student government voted 35 to 11 in favor of a resolution asking the chicken chain to leave. But it’s unclear what the next step is: According to a school spokesman, the final decision rests with university administrators and the school president.

Two other North Carolina schools—Duke University and Davidson College—have already given Chick-fil-A the boot after president Dan Cathy said over the summer his company was “guilty as charged” when it came to working to defeat marriage equality.  Since then, Chick-fil-A and Cathy seem to be sending mixed signals about the company’s commitment to staying out of the marriage fight.

      Democracy in action. Well done. I applaud your actions.

      Now if only everywhere else would tell them to go f*ck themselves.

      Oh wait, it doesn’t count as democracy and free speech and voting if humans do it and not the christian right.

      Good for Elon!

      I just wanted some clarification on another part of the article. When you say ”
      Two other North Carolina schools—Duke University and Davidson College—have already given Chick-fil-A the boot” Do you mean those schools actually kicked them off campus?

      Sure respect Elon U …!
      Being black, left-handed or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it’s between two guys or two girls — all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

      The evil writings in Leviticus 18:22 … against gays – depict: “P” … “priestly rules” & expanded by the pope; homophobes and religious frauds … to attack the gay community and never meant to apply to the public — but to priests. Leviticus was written long after Moses — 600BC.

      There is no scientific evidence to prove any of the cross related bogus elements of christianity and other religions. Our early human ancestors; on this earth … go back more than 6 million years … 5,996,000 years before the Greeks, Romans and the Jews. Christianity is basically a 2012 year old fictional cult.
      In the year 300 AD when Emperor Constantine, who to some was the first pope; went on to fabricate & market Christianity!
      Christianity is a fantasy; which turned out to be one of the most hateful & evil concoctions ever perpetrated on the world.

      It is written; so therefore it shall be? We are the chosen people? Such a wicked fantasy. To see the religious lunatics manipulate government and our lives is shameful.

      The pope and churches fully aware that Leviticus 18:22 applies to priests only … refuse to remove this stigma … maliciously persecuting gays. Kids are being bullied into suicide …!

      I am disappointed in people. Especially people like Macdonaldbank. First, Chick-Fil-A never said it was anti-gay. You show me ONE PIECE of evidence. It was the CEO who is anti-gay. So go picket his house and leave the corporation alone. They will happily serve gay people. I have tested this out myself. I walked up to one of the servers and said “I’m gay, does that mean I can’t eat here?” They said “If you’re a paying customer, you are just like everyone else. What would you like?” That was very respectfully said. No, I’m not gay, but to them, it didn’t matter. Second, you say there is no scientific evidence? There’s non-Christian literature from the time that says Jesus was hung on the cross. There is graffiti that shows Jesus hanging on the cross. Just because nobody found the cross doesn’t mean there’s no evidence. As far as kids being bullied into suicide because they are gay being the church’s fault, that’s the stupidest argument against religion I ever heard. Seriously. There are non-religious kids bullying gay kids all the time. They even bully the Christian straight kids. So your argument is not only null and void, but it’s just plain ignorant. You just hate religion because it goes against your human desires. You want to do what you want, when you want and you don’t want to have to answer for it. I’m sorry to say, society doesn’t accept that. It has nothing to do with religion. You’re just using it as a scapegoat for your inability to do wrong. You need to stop blaming people for your own shortcomings. You sit there and tell people that people need to be tolerant of gays and lesbians, then turn around and tell them to be intolerant of Christians. It’s a self defeating argument there, don’t you think?
