Nice try at relativism. Chick Filete hires gay workers, treats them no differently than any other employee and welcomes business from gay patrons. Their CEO supports traditional marriage. That is in no way equivalent to Jim Crow with its pervasive set of discriminatory laws.
Their CEO supports exporting homosexuals from the country and making homosexual sex illegal. THAT is intolerance.

To be intolerant, one must be trying to prevent someone from doing something. No one is trying to prevent the CEO from donating to whomever the **** he wants to. Whatever ****ing retards he wants to donate to, he can. No one wants to stop him. But, we don't support his ignorant, harmful, and discriminatory beliefs and refuse to give him our money. That's not being intolerant. It would only be intolerant if we were trying to STOP him from doing what he wished. (like the ****tards who want to stop gender equality in marriage)

Right? There's a difference between refusing to help him, and actively hindering him.
The former is not only my right, but- as I see it- my responsibility.

They are banned from being served by the free giveaways the college provides...

When there are 40 food options and the college provides 39 and tells the other (at least temporarily) to go f*ck themselves, that's a ban...

Does anyone on the conservative side of this discussion know what a student union is?

"The college" has banned NOTHING! The temporary ban was imposed by a group of students who serve as a board of directors for the student union. That is both their right and their responsibility if it is what the majority of their feedback from students is asking for.

The Union Board is the major student programming organization of Davidson College. The Union Board is made up of 19 students who serve as officers of the organization and chairs of the 10 programming commitees of the Board.

The college has banned nothing. Then the next sentence refers to banning Chick Filet. The comments contradicts itself.

When does the student union council take up the "temporary" ban for debate and votes on the record? Instead they hide behind the artifice of our ban didn't ban any vendor. Nonsense and cowardice of the highest order.

The school was very courageous. People are taking sides as they did 50 years ago and CFA will be the Anita Bryant of the fast food industry.
It galls me how people can take up for this guy at all and further to drape him in a flag and stand him up as some kind of hero when he is just a flooking bigot.
A bigot is what he is.

In 1966 he would have said something like "I won't have my daughter marrying a ni_r"
And you continue to defend this idiot with a microphone?
Classic ends justify the means rhetoric. Advocate supression of free speech " he should have kept his mouth shut" because you don't agree with his support for traditional marriage. This is typical of gay marriage advocates, our rights, our votes, the rule of law must be eschewed in pursuit of their objective.

Unable to construct a cogent rebuttal a racist smear is offered instead. Of course that means the majority of black voters casting ballots for Prop 8 in California must be racist as well.

The student union board is not "the college." If you still don't understand, then, I'm sorry, but I do not know how to make it any simpler.

I suggest that anyone who still thinks that "the college" is responsible do a little research on what a student union is and who runs it. You can start with the link that I provided above.
