    These free speech-hating students finally won a "victory."

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...#slide=1328287

    Davidson College in North Carolina has become the first college to give Chick-fil-A the boot.

    Students at Davidson began protesting against serving Chick-fil-A at school sponsored late-night food-and-music events called After Midnight, which are held on one Saturday each month. An online petition gathered nearly 500 signatures calling for the school to stop serving Chick-fil-A at campus sanctioned events. Some Davidson students oppose the company's support of anti-gay groups, and its president, Dan Cathy, admitting to being against same-sex marriage rights.

    Many colleges have seen students protest against Chick-fil-A restaurants located on campus, but Davidson doesn't actually have one at their school. Chick-fil-A food was ordered and served regularly at After Midnight events, along with other fast food options.

    In response to the opposition against the fast food joint, Davidson has decided to stop serving Chick-fil-A for the time being.
    Well, you know... It's a "moral victory."

    Stupid is as stupid does.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    I heard the nearby Chick-fil-A noticed a distinct downtick in sales.

    Let them eat biscotti! Put in a Starbucks.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    You may or may not agree with Chick-Fil-A's CEO. But one thing is true: If you want more chickens you'll need both a rooster and a hen.
