“Parents should transfer their students to a more tolerant university...”

Spot on.

Parents should yank their kids out of any and all colleges that have students that protest Chick-Fil-A, have gay student unions or any gay students or staff.

It seems there would be no problem whatsoever finding colleges, with top notch accademic programs, that are not at all influenced by the Sodomites.

They should move right off-campus on US-1 where I can get to it easier. Ledo’s is already there, now if we could attract a Jersey Mike’s Subs it’d be heaven.

I can round up 850 people to sign anything.....the only people who should have been allowed to sign that nonsense are the patrons as they are leaving CFA.. You can rest assured that the signers were NEVER patrons of the store, and who the he** cares what they think.

I agree, and the petition was one of those that you click on at Change.Org.

We are talking about a petition signed by Democrats, which means they probably hired an ACORN guy to fill in all the blanks. How dare an owner of a business express his unsanctioned opinion about gay marriage. That is against the rules in the world of leftist academia. You know, the world of open minds and diverse opinions.

Thanks. With reference to your Post #49, please reconsider.

My statement stands about the constitutional illiteracy which is a consequence of America's public schools failure to teach America's founding documents and the ideas underlying those documents.

For these students to "petition the University" to remove, or ban, a business from its State-owned Campus, means that these students fail to understand that their "petition" requests "the government" to take an action which, if undertaken, would constitute an attempt to punish that business because its CEO exercised his free speech rights, as well as his right to freedom of religion and free exercise.

Sadly, we are yielding up our rights, sometimes without intending to do so--just out of sheer ignorance of the protections of our Constitution and those actions it prohibits government from taking.

You are exactly right! I totally misinterpreted your post. I have corrected so many people here and elsewhere who think that the “right to free speech” gives them the right to say or do anything they want without repercussion. I wonder how many people who assert their supposed rights under the Constitution have actually read it. I would guess very few. You obviously are one who has not only read it, but understands it. Thank you for the clarification.

Thanks, KevinB.

You probably would enjoy, or like to share, a Bicentennial of the Constitution book, originally published back in 1987 entitled "Our Ageless Constitution." It can be found here. Useful for discussions of the Founding principles (in the Founders' own words) and the ways we have moved away from them, as explained by conservative constitutional scholars of 1987. A great collection of documents and quotations is included in that 292-page illustrated volume.

While 850 is definitely tiny compared to 27k undergrads (what really counts, BTW), it dwarfs the # of College Republicans.

In my day there, we fit in a regular classroom. Meanwhile, the love-fest over a Klintoon debate was filled up in a whole large ballroom.

A more accurate title would have read:

I understand where you are coming from. It’s a lot easier to recruit on campus when you’ve basically got the fellow travelers of Stalin in leadership position.

“There was a running back that signed with Auburn over Clemson because Clemson did not have a Chick-Fil-A.”

WTF!!? There are Chick Fil-A’s all over South Carolina!
