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.
