Davidson College student group temporarily suspends Chick-fil-A from school events

Quote:
Classes have yet to commence at Davidson College in North Carolina, but Chick-fil-A is already not welcome — at least for now.

Students led a petition to ban the restaurant chain from monthly “After Midnight” events — free food and entertainment events from midnight to 2 a.m. run by the Union Board, a student activities organization. The nighttime events sometimes feature Chick-fil-A sandwiches.

The Union Board has decided not to schedule Chick-fil-A sandwiches until they get more feedback from students.

“The college Union Board has said in light of the petition, they are not going to schedule Chick-fil-A sandwiches until they can get student input from students on the situation,” Bill Giduz, director of media relations at Davidson College, told News14 Carolina Tuesday.

The chicken chain has been under fire since last month from gay marriage activists for Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy’s comments in support of traditional marriage. The chain has stressed that it does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.

Union Board president Adriana Nassar and vice president Cameron Joe claim they are trying to create an inclusive environment for the student body.

“The Davidson College Union Board is firmly committed to building an inclusive community that serves each member of our student body,” Nassar and Joe said in a joint statement Monday.
Got that logic?...

In order to be more INCLUSIVE, we're going to BAN a restaurant and BAN our students from getting food at said restaurant...

Tolerance for everyone (Except you)!...

The restaurant isn't banned. Students aren't banned from getting food there. The restaurant's food just isn't included in a particular student gathering.

If we are talking about the intolerance of tolerance - then both sides are quite guilty of that sin (though...you only ever post about the one side's hypocrisy)....

It is disingenuous to pretend that we all do not know what Chick-Fil-A executive, Dan Cathy, has done to demonstrate his intolerance.

It is disingenuous to pretend that boycotting Chick-Fil-A is about anything other than to wanting to contribute to anti-gay groups through our choice of where we spend our money.

Not supporting intolerance is not the same as intolerance.

Claiming that the way to show tolerance is by intolerance is classic double speak. The people claiming to be tolerant express it by condemning anyone who disagrees with them as intolerant. A neat trick but it isn't tolerance by any means.

The student union funded by manditory fees seeks to impose their political ideas on the students by boycott because the CEO doesn't agree with them. Colleges are supposed to be sanctuaries for free speech and thought but the student union leaders just demonstrated the opposite. It is a fine model of repressive governance.

Dear ****ing god

Tolerance doesn't mean acceptance. If you tolerate something, it means you ALLOW it to happen. No one is trying to force the government to shut Chick Fil A down.

Freedom of speech is a FEDERAL thing. There is no guarantee of freedom of speech in the private sector. Additionally, freedom of speech doesn't mean freedom from the consequences of said speech. Freedom of speech refers to and ONLY to the government allowing someone to say something. It has **** all to do with any private entity or individual.
