    READ THE FULL POST AT Cameron Harris: Chick-fil-A and More Thoughts On the Gay Rights Movement



    Recently, Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy made statements in an interview implying that both he and his company remained strongly opposed to gay marriage. Since, many political, entertainment, and business figures have lambasted Chick-fil-A for its beliefs. Boston Mayor Thomas Menino promised to block any effort by the company to establish a restaurant in the city. Even the Muppets have hopped on the train and have publicly criticized the company.


    I wrote an article last week about the increasing hypocrisy of the gay rights movement, and the situation with Chick-fil-A concretely proves my point. Is there this much outrage when a company publicly supports gay marriage? What would happen if a mayor vowed to block a restaurant from opening in his city because the company was pro-gay marriage? Again, this is just another instance of the gay rights movement not being able to tolerate and accept that there are still those of us out there who do not support gay marriage. But, of course, they paint us as the intolerant group.

    Last night, a student at my college began a petition that was circulated through various Class pages on Facebook.

    Every so often, our College Union Board holds a Davidson After Midnight event where the college brings in food to hand out to students for free. One of the most popular restaurants that participates is Chick-fil-A. This particular student started a petition entitled “We Don’t Need Chick-Fil-A After Midnight.” The point of the petition is to gauge the opinion of the student body. To my knowledge, many do not want their tuition money going to a restaurant that publicly opposes gay marriage and donates money to organizations that do the same.

    Here is my question: If I decide that I do not want my money going to corporations that support gay marriage, a corporation like Coca Cola who provides Davidson College with vending machines as well as soda fountains in the dining hall, and I started a petition, would I be looked at as a moral champion or a socially intolerant bigot?

    I believe homosexuals should get the same cash and prizes from state and federal governments that straight people do under the law.

    I also believe the mayor is an overreaching idiot.

    What do you make of that?

    Do you believe that it is unacceptable for me to be against gay marriage?

    i agree with u, tho the gay couples dont have to have a marriage, thats defined as man and woman, they can call it something else and still get the same respect and laws and what have u. as soon as u allow politicians to change the meansings of words, we will all regret it. so i am with u there.

    my other complaint, ive still yet to attend a straight parade and i still dont know why gays need a parade to say "we are all equal some are more equal than others"

    end the parades.

    Hey, you can also believe interracial marriages are unacceptable. Whatever!

    All that matters it that they receive equal protection under the law.

    What is it with this obsession over Gay Pride parades?

    Weird.

    An oppressed people should lie down and take it? They should stay in the closet? Be invisible? Go away?

    The mayor of Birmingham felt the same way about black people marching. It drove him CRAZY!

    Keeping them out of sight makes it easier to withhold rights from them.

    I can'tt blame them for not standing for that!

    so by being treated as an equal u should have more attention thrown ur way? I dont get it. U cant say "treat everyone as equals" than give some people a parade for being one way. They are not being more human, they are not doing anything out of the ordinary, they arent saving lives by being gay? For what reason do they need a parade that the tax payer has to pay for? How are we being equals? Again, no straight parades, why not?
