A North Carolina universitys student government has voted to ban a Chick-fil-a restaurant on campus because the fast-food chains president is against gay marriage.
Elon Universitys Student Government Association voted 35-11 to ask its food vendor to find another restaurant to take its place, the Daily Advance reports.

Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.
Boycott UNC and graduates of this bigoted institution.
Elon is private, small college, not a UNC. Lots of the students come from the north east and not NC
Does Chick fil A have a lease or agreement with the student government association or with the university?
I’m thinking the association may not have standing to nullify any lease or agreement.
Any attorneys out there?
probably a bunch of yamdankees infiltrated that little school’s student body
So in the name of “Tolerating All Viewpoints”, they banned an organization for having a different viewpoint.
That’s true, and they changed their athletics mascot from “Fighting Christians” to “Phoenix” a number of years ago, blatantly thumbing their noses at the very heritage of the school.
Screw the Student council. They don’t know anything about business, and no one at Elon is teaching them apparently.
Here’s an important lesson for those student government kids: the vote didn’t kick chik fil a off campus at all, the student government doesn’t have that authority, and it doesn’t hold the contracts for food services.
If I were the school’s administration, I’d issue a concise statement for the student newspaper explaining the choice they are really trying to make, and promise to raise student fees in the next year by exactly what it will cost the college to break the contract (including applicable legal fees, and noting that the full costs will be borne in a single year so as to most directly reflect the current student body’s wishes) After the student body had a chance to mull that over for a week or so, then ask the student government to vote again.
I have a nephew at Elon. It is quite the liberal bastion. I’m sure that both he and his mother support this move. His brother, probably not quite so much - he just got back from Afghanistan and now knows better.
careful there, this is about Elon Univ, a small liberal arts college in NC
This time next year, this same clueless “student government” will be biotching that there are no “affordable choices” on campus.
And the beat goes on, and the beat goes on....
Good. That tells me all I need to know about their graduates.
“Hey, dudes! I’m makin’ a CFA run. Takin’ orders.”
“OK, that’ll be 250 spicy chicken sandwiches. Gimme the cash and I’m on the road!”
How does Student Council have any say in contracts with vendors?
Note to Elon University: Do not even THINK of asking me for a donation.
So the fast-food chains president is against perversion and the remedy is to ban the fast food chain. It’s amazing how sick, twisted and totally turned around the country’s values have become since I was a kid.
Stupidity knows no bounds
