University Suspends Chick-Fil-A from Campus [NC college is first to do so]
Campus Reform.org ^ | Aug 13 2012 | Cameron Harris

Posted on 08/13/2012 12:02:43 PM PDT by scottjewell

Davidson College in North Carolina has become the first university in the nation to prevent Chick-fil-A from being served on campus.

A liberal arts college in North Carolina has become the first in the nation to prevent Chick-fil-A from being served at campus events over the restaurant's indirect support of pro-family groups perceived by some as “anti-gay.”

The student organization that controls student funds at Davidson College made the decision last week to prevent the sandwiches from being served at a series of events called “After Midnight,” when students circulated a petition expressing outrage over a Chick-fil-A’s owner’s monetary donations to groups including Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.

And people often wondered how Brown Shirts could all be suckered into serving evil.

Ah, yes. How liberal of them -- Free speech, but only for for those who agree with us.

To be fair, they will be graduating with extremely useful liberal arts degrees, and Chick Fil-A is a competitor of McDonald’s - so this actually makes sense.

Wasn’t it NC that was teaching out of an edited koran, skipping certain passages?

It was the University of North Carolina, as I recall.

Stupidity is rampant in America these days (redundant statement after the 2008 election of Obama).

The only good in this kind of thing is finally and fully illuminating the true nature of the liberal-gay agenda.

Well, I know what I would do if I were an alumnus of Davidson College. It would be the same thing that I did many years ago when I stopped donating to the Columbia University Graduate School of Business from which I hold an MBA. Although I have been a donor to the Catholic college from which I received a BA 47 years ago, I keep a close watch on them. If they “step out of line”, further annual donations would cease. Alumni money talks. It is past time for many of these colleges and universities to get the message.

Not that it would ever happen, but it would be edifying if large numbers of parents started choosing not to send their kids and their money to universities and colleges who pulled such stunts. You would suddenly find they would stop this nonsense if it hit their bottom line.

I’ll just bet that any Chick-a-filet store in the area or neighboring city, will be just jam-packed as a result of this! They’ll take a lot of business from any store on the university campus! There are other students there who must be ticked about this move. This isn’t a smart move for the college!

I think North Carolina might be a lost cause. I NEVER thought I would have said such a thing. It is interesting how some of the liberal states are turning towards GOP and the conservative states are turning Democratic. It is interesting to see transition but I would rather it be a win for our side. I guess people watched in horror California turn to liberal after being conservative for so long.

Bingo. Universities that push this crap should have their financial tap shut off...well, parents?

In the spirit of Tolerance, the Davidson College Student Council voted to not tolerate Chick-Fil-A on campus. A spokesman said “We hate anyone who practices hate. We will ban anyone who doesn’t support freedom”.

I stopped donating to Indiana University, my alma mater, when they elevated a Soviet Communist professor of mine to Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences.

Yes, Professor Hansen was in every way, an outright Soviet Communist. All done under the Myles Brand administration. You know, the guy who as President of the NCAA decided that the way to deal with rampant academic and financial fraud in collegiate sports was to ban the use of Native American nicknames. See, if you’re team is called the “Wildcats” you can pay basketball players who remain eligible even thought they couldn’t spell “cat” if you spotted them the “c” and the “a.” But if you are the “Chippewas” you need to be punished.

Outrage? Outrage over some taking a Biblical stand for the marriage of a man & woman only?

I’m out raged that the sons & daughters would take a stand against those that will not lie down and approve legal sodomity, etc.

More importantly I believe our Saviour and God “Is angry with the wicked everyday.”

“The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” (Psalm 9:17)

“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34)

I lived maybe 5 miles from Davidson College in NC. It is a private, rich man’s school, full of preppies and pretension and NO ONE cares what those liberal pansies do.

Guess those po, book learnin’ chirren will jes have tuh make do with their sushi and designer pizzas hand fed to them by their staff for dinner instead of Chick Fil A. Wah.

And, I hope a lot of illuminating and true nature of the leftists comes out before November. Some people need to be beat in the heads repeatedly to get it.

LOL! A handful of faggots and simpletons from a college nobody ever heard of browbeat fellow students into signing a petition to stop Chic-Fil-A, “from being served at a series of events called ‘After Midnight’”! Better sell your Chick-Fil-A stock now! LMBO!!

The important thing is to see if the ABCNBCCBSNewYorkTimesWashingtonPost arm of the Democrat party picks the story up and tries to make it into a real story.

I’m past 78 years old, and I’ve aways thought highly of the UNC, especially of their basketball program. But now, for me no more!
But now, no more support of any kind for UNC.

The influx of out-of-staters bringing their politics with them has turned that state from solid conservative to a battle-ground state. Although this year, I think it will go Republican.

Davidson is not UNC. Davidson is a Presbyterian college

It’s ok to be down on UNC Chapel Hill though. When you turn off I 40 into the Chapel Hill, you can feel the bluezone chill.

Until proved otherwise, I would opine that the alumni are in agreement with the closing Chic-Fil-A. The saying that the acorn [or apple]doesn’t fall far from the tree is accurate more times than not.

Religious Life:

Welcome! Religious life at Davidson College is celebrated on the affirmation that we are all created in the image of God, brothers and sisters in the human family, whatever our creed, heritage or beliefs. As a Presbyterian church-related college, Davidson values the life of the spirit and fosters openness to and respect for the world's various faith traditions. With many religious resources and organizations on campus, we seek to be a community where everyone may grow spiritually through worship, fellowship, service, and study. Peace be with you. —The Rev. Rob Spach, College Chaplain

The title is extremely misleading. It makes it sound like a campus Chick-fil-A restaurant was shut down, when what happened is that CFA food was simply dis-allowed as a vendor for a campus event.

Now, see what the students have to say.
