Some time ago a man dared say publicly, “I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. I’m not somebody who promotes same-sex marriage.”
More recently another man dared say, “We are much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family owned business, a family-led business. We are married to our first wives and we give thanks to God for that.”
A few days later that man was deemed evil. And OMG WE HAVE HAVE GOT TO KICK HIS BUSINESS OFF THE APP STATE CAMPUS!!!!
Is this real life?
More than 500 Appalachian State University students have signed a petition demanding that the school shut down its Chick-fil-A restaurant.
The university released a statement Thursday saying, “There is nowhere better to facilitate challenging discussions about important issues than a university campus… Appalachian respects the right of consumers to make their own thoughtful choices consistent with their values.”
Some students are predicting a fight over whether or not the restaurant should stay open when classes start back up.
Kudos to App State for being tolerant. Same for athletics.
