All of that huffing and puffing and stern finger wagging on Emory's campus might have done some good: Chick-fil-A- is being dumped from the gay-friendly campus. With little fanfare late Friday, the campus newspaper Emory Wheel tweeted the departure of the controversial chicken chain:
That marks a quiet end to the nagging problem of what to do with the Chick-fil-A outlet on campus, something that's bothered some students since the company President Dan Cathy thumbed its nose at gay marriage and saluted LGBT activists with his middle finger last summer. Since, Emory students objected, student leaders fretted, a top official wrung his hands -- twice, and President James Wagner, who loves waffle fries apparently as much as he loves the gays, said the school would not push Chick-fil-A off its campus. Sodexo operates the campus restaurant. At least until no one was paying attention.
UPDATE: Chick-fil-a to be removed from Cox Hall this Summer as part of FACE's new Cox Hall layout.— Emory Wheel (@emorywheel) March 8, 2013
