David Pearce: Just eat elsewhere

Just eat elsewhere

Upon reading the article regarding the attempts to oust Chick-Fil-A from the campus of Elon University, I must admit my dismay. I was under the impression this was a country of free speech. Just because this particular restaurant chain owner does not agree in principle to same-sex marriage, certain individuals would want to force him out of this local business because of beliefs. How archaic!

If you feel so strongly, don’t eat there and economics will speak for you.

I wonder how the students would feel if they could not attend this fine institution based on their personal beliefs. Feed the mind.
