EIU Faculty Senate OKs measures
related to Chick-fil-A controversy

Journal Gazette and Times-Courier, by Samantha Bilharz *

Original Article

Posted By:flyingdc, 10/3/2012 9:42:36 AM

CHARLESTON — The Faculty Senate at Eastern Illinois University on Tuesday approved three resolutions related to issues involving Chick-fil-A. A fourth measure — supporting the ouster of the restaurant chain’s site on campus — failed on a 3-6 vote, with five abstentions. Proposed by Faculty Senate member Stacey Knight-Davis, it stated: “...Faculty Senate supports the non-renewal of the current Chick-fil-A agreement.”

*and Penny Weaver

The Chick-fil-A logo has been deemed a symbol of hate speech. Still awaiting the senate's decision on rainbow flags.

Mrs Greyhounds graduated from this University. The current fund raising letter from them will be returned empty, except for a note on the reason why...

“Whereas the current Chick-fil-A controversy has altered the campus climate ..."

No, Stacy, there is no "controversy" - except in your narrow little mind.
No, Stacy, Chick-fil-A hasn't "altered the campus climate" - except in your narrow little mind.

FTA: Another approved resolution asks that Chick-fil-A’s contract at Eastern’s Martin Luther King Jr. University Union be either renegotiated every year or that the retail space be subject to open bidding.

Some real business geniuses there at EIU (Mrs. Baseball Fan's alma mater). What retailer is going to want to lease space for just one year? A typical retail space of 1,500 SF can take 3 months to build out - leaving them a whopping 9 months before they're forced to renew or leave? Oh - wait - these are faculty members - they don't burden themselves with reality.

And the abstentions - I see there are some Obamanauts at EIU, though that's no real surpise.

I now eat at Chick fil-A once a week. The store is full, the service is great and Mr Cathy is raking in the cash to the glory of Jesus Christ. Thank you very much. Amen.

The irony is that they have no idea how few places they would have to trade, spend their dollars, and patronize if they knew the politics of all those decision makers within the corporations.....

Bottom line....if you don't like Chick Fil-a's politics or moreover, don't like its 1st amendments rights being allowed to exist....eat at Burger King.

These are the people that the university system is going to turn loose on society to torture the sane among us....

So now a company is a symbol of hate. But hate organizations (New Black Panthers) gets a pass. By the way, EIU has an endowment of just over 33 million bucks in 2009 that ranked EIU as 602 among endowments. Harvard was number 1 at 25.6 billion dollars. So this isn't a successful university at generating donations. One wonders how insulting Christians will go over when it comes to improving that endowment. The President of the University would do well to tell the faculty Senate to worry more about producing competent students and less on money killing proclamations.

I think the faculty should have better things to worry about than a sandwich shop. Seriously.

There's a lesbian prof on the campus where I work who called for a boycott of Chick-fil-A until someone asked her how she'd like it if her pub was boycotted because she is gay.

Chick-fil-A is going strong and her pub is still in business as both should be.

I think it's time for another Love Chick-Fil-A Day in America! We eat there all the time anyway because we love the food, but this just makes me want to support them all the more.

Chicago, used to be a big town--but now it's filled with small minds. The smallest is now Pre...oh,oh, might be deemed hate speech, better not say it!

Cheers to the best chicken sandwiches and homespun shakes in town!

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality. The report by Unite Here--a North American labor union that represents workers in the hotel, gaming, food service, manufacturing, textile, distribution, laundry, and airport industries--is titled: "The Irony of ObamaCare: Making Inequality Worse." "Ironically, the Administration´s own signature healthcare victory poses one of the most immediate challenges to redressing inequality," states the 12-page report. "We take seriously the promise

The ´unprecedented mystery´ behind the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH 370 deepened on Monday when relatives claimed they were able to call the cellphones of their missing loved ones. According to the Washington Post, family of some of the 239 people on board the vanished Boeing 777 said that they were getting ring tones and could see them as online through a Chinese social networking service called QQ.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

In an online comedy bit with comedian Zach Galifianakis, Pres. Obama asks what could be considered a very serious question. In a mock online interview on the Funny Or Die website, Obama asks Galifianakis if he thinks First Lady Michelle Obama would marry a nerd: (Video) Zack Galifianakis: "You said if you had a son, you would not let him play football. What makes you think that he would want to play football? What if he was a nerd, like you?" Pres. Obama: "Do you think a woman like Michelle would marry a nerd?"

The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they´re not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy. Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland said he´s taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux. "We´re not getting rid of him right now," Palmer said. "He´s been part of our family for a long time."

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Here was the Morning Joe panel bemoaning Ted Cruz´s supposed incivility at CPAC in allegedly insulting war hero Bob Dole, when up pops Mike Barnicle to ask "what does it say about CPAC, where the most popular speaker they had, the one who received the most rousing reception is a moron, Sarah Palin?" A bit later, Mika Brzezinski piled on, calling Palin a "multi-million dollar moron." When Joe Scarborough challenged her, saying "you don´t think that, right?", Mika didn´t retract her slur, saying only that Palin is "savvy in selling a message that makes a lot of money." View the

Beyoncé and Jennifer Garner are among the prominent women taking a stand against the term "bossy" and what it stands for in regards to female empowerment. "Being labeled something matters," Garner, 34, says in a promotional video for the campaign. The effort against discouraging girls from leadership is a joint push from the Girl Scouts of America and the Lifetime network. The PSA also includes participation from Jane Lynch, Condoleezza Rice, Diane von Furstenberg, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and "Lean In" author Sheryl Sandberg. "Girls are less interested in leadership than boys," Beyoncé says, while Lynch adds, "and that´s

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

   

 



 
Donors back Mike Huckabee, seen

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know

Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.). With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sink’s 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent. Sink lost the 2010 governor’s race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive. “Republican special interest groups poured in millions to hold onto a Republican

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- By now, and by god, it should have settled permanently in the consciousness of the nation what a huge and untoward gamble with the country John McCain and his campaign took in 2008 when they elevated Sarah Palin from her rightful place on the tundra to the political celebrity she currently enjoys.

Back five years ago, somebody wrote down on a little card for her that allowing the Russians to invade Georgia -- as though there was anything we could have done about that -- would embolden Vladimir Putin to move
