North Carolina College Students Vote Chick-fil-A Off Campus
Sayanything ^

Posted on 10/15/2012 8:32:37 PM PDT by chessplayer

The students are showing their commitment to tolerance by having zero tolerance for moralities that are different from their own.

What’s next? Vote the Muslim groups off campus because they don’t like gay marriage either?

How does a student group have the power to close a business, who i assume holds a contract?

How does this happen in a state like North Carolina, while at NYU, the students there can't get this done?

This country can be a strange place sometimes...

Because my guess is that all the students who LIKE eating there are scared to death to speak out. I’ve seen it personally, these young liberals are meanspirited, angry, intolerant jerks who will call for your death if you disagree with them.

Just look at what happens to any person who says they are voting for Romney on twitter.

I would vote for Chick Fil A to open up a new store 200 feet from campus and no more student discounts.

I’m wondering how they can do this and be perfectly fine with muslim groups ranting and raving against gay marriage.

cafeteria food must have improved greatly since I was in school. I would have loved a nice hot chicken sammich back then.

If they didn’t vote the business *on* to campus, why should they have the privilege of voting them *off*?

Universities, even state universities, live in a world of their own, ensconced in hermetically sealed bell jars where up is down, right is left, and being tolerant means persecuting and punishing those who disagree with you.

Entrusting authority to gaggles of idiot college students is dangerous and unwise, but we have whole faculties who fit that description. NC must have one of them.

When did they do this?
I just read a bunch of stuff from mid August and all they were able to get was 500 signatures.
Plus, they didn’t even have a restaurant on campus, all they had was an option with lots of other fast food for delivery after the cafeteria was closed.
So what did they vote on?

Kids are so stupid. At my granddaughter’s university, they staged the national coming out party thing the other night....at the dining facility. Regular kids had to hurry and get take-out food in order not to be associated with this group. The Christian kids all went to another area of the campus to eat and enjoy life. They get sick of the militant, in your face activities too. Imagine, you want boys to marry boys and girls to marry girls.
And if they can’t you don’t want no mo chicken sandwiches on campus. Makes sense to me.

Let that be a lesson to all businesses who might consider setting up shop there. You could lose your arse over who knows what frivolous thing comes up.

I was in my high school’s student organization the whole time I was there, 1999-2004. After 2004, the organization really went down hill. We had two great guys that graduated in 2000; a large group that graduated in 2002, most of the rest in 2003, which was supposed to be the year I graduated, and then the rest in 2004.

Maybe it’s not a coincidence that the later years were terrible for student organizations.

Chik-Fil-A should sue them for discrimination. By banning Chik-Fil-A for discriminating against gays by not embracing gay marriage, they are discriminating against a Chik-Fil-A for having a Christian CEO. Sounds about right by the lefts standards.

Actually, I think what they dont understand is the word “comprehend”. Chic-Fil-A’s FOUNDER does not support homosexual marriage [I agree with him]. From articles I have read, CFA hires gays, they dont discriminate against them. So, in the end by kicking CFA off campus [IF they get it done], they are not only losing revenue, but also jobs. Who’s to say the new business will hire back the ones who worked in CFA?

Over the past few months, I have read/heard so many articles/stories.....where the people in the article say some pretty stupid things......and it all leads back to lack of comprehension of what they are talking about or being asked.

Hey everyone, I’m a conservative senior economics major at Elon University and wanted to let you all know what really happened.

The student government (SGA) decided to hold an open forum on the supposed issue of Chickfila on campus because SPECTRUM (an LGBTQ organization) has the opinion that Chickfila should be banned from campus because of Chickfila donating to supposed ‘anti-gay’ organizations.
This open forum was held the day before fall break started during midterms week and on the same night as the VP debate, thus eliminating the possibilities of most business school students or many other students who are conservative to attend due to our midterms or our wanting to watch the VP debate. The open forum wasn’t advertised that much and mostly all of SPECTRUM showed up to the open forum. For three straight hours many of their members gave emotional stories to support their opinion, which is ridiculous. There were some people trying to show the common sense to everyone else there by pointing out that Chickfila is entitled to its own rights. Seeing all the SPECTRUM people there, most of the senators probably felt like they had no other choice but to vote for it.

For the first time I am ashamed of my university because of this decision. I don’t understand how the people who want everyone else to be tolerant of their sexual orientation can’t be tolerant of other people’s religious beliefs. Most of the campus has the same view I do, in the fact that Chickfila should stay and that this decision basically throws the first amendment out the window. The next step is in the president of SGA’s hands, who I personally know. He is a big conservative and has the power of vetoing the motion to suggest to the administration to ban Chickfila. If he doesn’t veto, the administration will debate over the issue and come to a final decision.

Any and all advice is welcome because I don’t want my university to be in the spotlight for this and I don’t want to be graduating from a university who supports this kind of ludicrous liberal movement.

I don’t understand what are you getting at with saying it’s a “LIBERAL ARTS college.”

I attended a liberal arts college and I’m just curious about your statement. Thanks.

So the college students are violating CFA’s own civil right to setup it’s business because of the owner’s personal belief? Unbelievable.

If I were CFA I would setup the business there & if any of the college students vandelized the property, I’d file some lawsuits
