Another attempt by leftists to stifle free speech!
I DO NOT accept two people of the same sex marrying, but I have no problem in what they do in their private lives. I have no hatred for homosexuals, does that make me a bigot for having these feelings and beliefs about people of the same sex marrying?
What ever happened to free speech?

Chick-fil-A at Emory University

Emory University in Atlanta will not have a Chick-fil-A on campus next semester. The school newspaper, The Emory Wheel, broke the news on Twitter last week that the sandwich chain would leave to make way for renovations.

Emory's LGBT alumni group sent a letter to campus president James Wagner after Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy admitted he and his company were "guilty as charged" when it came to actively opposing marriage equality. Seven campus LGBT groups followed suit in October, and the student association passed a resolution in December urging the college to reconsider Chick-fil-A as a campus venue, according to the Georgia Voice."

I think the government has no business being in the "Marriage Business". Let religions marry whomever they want. I know the southern Talibani's will be upset, but they're always upset. Whether it's two gays marrying or two hillbillies, it's all the same in the end.
Personally I don't care if two fairies marry each other. I don't care what they do in the privacy of their bedroom, and I will treat them with respect as long as they keep their freaky deaky to themselves. What I have a problem with is the USUAL SUSPECTS who control the media (and will all know that the media really controls politics) portraying homersexuals and trannies as NORMAL. As recently as 1973 homosexuality was identified as a mental illness. Where do you draw the line. Will we soon be saying organizations like NAMBLA are "normal" and we shouldn't discriminate against child molestors.

Step on corporations and they can step back by cutting out grants and scholarships which I would do if I were Dan Cathy. Let the ingrates go out and EARN their money for their education.
