. 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 Dont 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?
