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.

Alumni money talks. It is past time for many of these colleges and universities to get the message.

Yes it does, I've been preaching that Gospel for 7-8 years here and elsewhere. It's the only way to reach the educational elites.

I strongly recommend membership and donations to the American Council of Trustees and Alumni which specializes in targeting such donations.

ACTA

Chick-Fil-A needs to sue the university for no longer wanting to do business with them.

Chick-Fil-A has the right to do business where it wants and the property owner has no rights.

So, if I interpret this correctly, there is no Chick-fil-A on that campus, but they are prohibiting students or others from running to CFA for carry out and bringing back to any sort of official university function?

Lol, that will really sink the CFA franchises, or increase their business in that area by 20% or more.

Tuition alone at Davidson College is $40k a year.

Can anyone imagine paying that so your kids can fight for homosexuals redefining marriage?

America's academic institutions have fallen.

I agree, after reading it more closely I see that. It is “suspended” pending a vote.

Good, they can sue them for discrimination.

Probably not. As a private college, they can pretty much do anything they want regarding suppliers to college functions. (That might be different if it were a state university.)

The sensationalized headline and breathless “reporting” makes a mountain out of a molehill. One, this is a student run group buying sandwhiches for late night events. There is no “preventing”. Buried deep in the article (apparently having gone to the NY Times school of biased reporting):
Bill Giduz, a spokesperson for Davidson College, told Campus Reform that although a formal decision has not yet been made there could be a firm decision in coming weeks

“Well, you know the union board may have informally decided that. They may have talked among themselves and said until they have a chance to talk about it, let’s not serve Chick-fil-A. That may be the case,” said Giduz. “But, as far as I know, they have not made any formal statement.”

This is not an action by the school, it is not even a formal action by the student board. It is a group of goofy college kids buying sandwiches. If I know Davidson, one of the more conservative frats will probably have a party that exclusively serves Chick Fil A.

BTW that is not a picture of a Chick Fil A at Davidson, there is no Chick Fil A at Davidson.

We live in California and our son received one of the coveted Carolina scholarships from Chapel Hill(basically a free ride) and graduated from UNC’s business school 4 years ago. By the time he graduated, he was so fed up with the extreme far left that permeates the whole school that he swears that he will never give them a single penny...

You are correct. We are in a dark age of man.

Minority is majority.
Conformity is independence.
Uniformity is freedom.
Consensus equates truth.
Freedom of thought is sin.
Vulgarity is art.
Truth is shameful. Obfuscation is righteous.
God has no opinion.

We’re getting close to the bottom. Personally, I can’t wait.

A civil rights suit needs to be filed in federal court against any university that does this.

There was never any mention of corporate policies, only the personal religious views of the owner of the company, and he’s being harassed for his religious views by a state run school, a clear violation of the 1st amendment of the Constitution.

Headline is misleading. Makes you think an actual Chick Fil A store is getting ejected from their campus. In reality it’s just a bunch of activist snots announcing that they’ll no longer be spending Student Activity Fees on catering from CFA.

Scratch another college off the list of those you want to recruit from, or accept applications from when you are hiring at a big corporation (and want to do serious business rather than gay outreach)

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

The parents that send their kids to this college are as liberal as the college typically.

My nephew attends Davidson and thinks 0drama is the best thing that ever happened to this country. His father is an oil company executive in AK and even he supports the current _resident of the White House, which is surprising considering the war that’s been declared on the oil companies since 0drama moved in.

My newphew and his father visited no less than 10 colleges before choosing Davidson and the son chose this one not only for what they offered academically, but because most of the students he met ‘thought like me’ according to him.

Their parents are probably celebrating CFA being told to leave.

"After Midnight" series of events? Can't let the words of Chick-fil-A's Cathy possibly influence these students who of course know it all.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.
After midnight, we're gonna chug-a-lug and shout.
We're gonna stimulate some action;
We're gonna get some satisfaction.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

After midnight, we're gonna shake your tambourine.
After midnight, it's all gonna be peaches and cream.
We're gonna cause talk and suspicion;
We're gonna give an exhibition.
We're gonna find out what it is all about.
After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

After midnight, we're gonna let it all hang down.

That reminds me, Chick-fil-A's peach shakes are out of this world. :) What stoopit kids.

Recently, William and Mary, up the road from me, took the cross out of the chapel to not “offend”. The outrage , especially from alums, was instantaneous with the with holding of money being most effective.
The idiot, lib president (ex-law school prof) was shut down and eventually moved on to another school.
It works...hope it works for this school.

If my kid went to one of these schools, I’d pull their butt out in a heartbeat. If they protested, I’d tell them it was time they paid their own way through college.

This is ONE area where I would not pull any punches with my kids.

I watched a DVR-d copy of the "Rise of the Third Reich" over the weekend. Before they started collecting them up in concentration camps, the Nazis organized boycotts of Jewish businesses, forbidding any true-blooded German from engaging in business with Jews.

The left would scream, "you're crazy!" if that was brought up to them.

WOW! Redoubled! - They are really energetic promoters of homosexuals!

How do you calculate that?

When it's doubled that is twice the original.

Then if you redouble, do you add one more double (four times original)?
Or do you double the double (eight times the original)?
