California College Campus Votes to Ban Popular Restaurant Over Religious Views

You can’t preach tolerance, diversity, and inclusion and also ban people whose religious beliefs offend you.

One of the nation’s most popular eateries is under attack in California, where otherwise “tolerant” “social justice warriors” are foaming at the mouth.

As you may have guessed, we are once again witnessing a financial attack on popular chicken restaurant Chick-fil-A over the religious views of the company’s President.  This time, however, there are real concerns over exactly how this decision will impact our inalienable right to religious freedom.

Faculty at California Polytechnic State University recently voted to ban Chick-fil-A from campus, accusing the restaurant’s charity arm of being “in violation of our values” and suggesting that Chick-fil-A’s presence on campus is similar to having pornography or a Hooters establishment at the school. The university president, however, is expected to veto the faculty vote.

Cal Poly’s Academic Senate voted overwhelmingly in favor of blacklisting a Chick-fil-A restaurant from the school’s San Luis Obispo campus, due to the company’s owner supposedly having a “perceived opposition to the LGBTQ community,” according to KCBX News.

One of the proponents of the ban made several incendiary statements regarding Chick-fil-A, including comparing the restaurant to pornography.

Thomas Gutierrez, the Academic Senate’s vice-chair who introduced the resolution, compared Chick-fil-A to pornography and Hooters in his attempt to explain why the fast-food restaurant was not welcomed on campus, according to a report by Mustang News.

“We don’t sell pornography in the bookstore and we don’t have a Hooters on campus,” said Gutierrez, “We already pre-select those kind of things based on our existing values — this is a similar thing. The difference is we’re actually profiting from this. So our money, every dollar a student is spending at Chick-fil-A, is going to these causes that are in violation of our values.”

In a strikingly oxymoronic bit of “logic”, Gutierrez went on to tout the university’s commitment to “diversity and inclusion”.

And while all of this anger and vitriol certainly gave Gutierrez something to rage about, it appears as though the vote to ban Chick-fil-A will remain a symbolic one.

After the vote to blacklist Chick-fil-A, the resolution was reportedly sent to Cal Poly president Jeffery Armstrong, who will then make the final decision.

“Nevertheless, I think it’s important to go into the public record that the faculty feel this way on this fairly timely issue,” said Gutierrez, acknowledging President Armstrong’s apparent decision to keep Chick-fil-A on campus.

Virginia Puts New Monthly Limits On Handguns

Published

on

The Bill of Rights, contained within the United States Constitution, speaks in clear, easy-to-understand English, that the federal government does not have the authority in any capacity to infringe upon the God-given right to bear arms. Scholars have debated what this amendment means for many, many years, which is ridiculous, because it’s spelled out for them in the text itself and in the context in which the amendment was written. People have the right to own guns and the government can’t interfere with that. Bingo. However, big government nanny-state folk are only interested in finding new and creative ways to place as many limits on this right as possible, because an unarmed people are a whole lot easier to control. The state of Virginia has now adopted some of the strictest gun control measures in the country after a judge shot down a bid to block a ridiculous one-handgun-a-month limit from taking effect. Here’s more from The Free Beacon: Virginia Democrats made gun control a top priority after taking control of both the state legislature and governor’s mansion in 2019 and quickly pushed through one of the most restrictive packages in the country. Residents in the commonwealth are now subject to universal background checks, red flag laws, and a monthly limit on how many handguns they can purchase. Gun-rights activists had attempted to block the July 1 implementation date of those measures in separate suits. A state judge rejected a request to temporarily block the one-gun-a-month law on Thursday. The same group of gun-rights activists requested a stay in a new suit against the universal background check law, but were unable to secure a hearing before the law took effect. Philip Van Cleave, president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), which is involved in both current lawsuits and considering…

Nearly 4.8M Jobs Added To Economy In June, Just Before Surge In New COVID-19 Infections

Published

on

President Trump has reason to celebrate this week as a new report from the Labor Department is stating that almost 4.8 million jobs have been added to the economy in June, just before the surge in new cases of coronavirus hit, dropping the unemployment rate to 11.1 percent. This is fantastic news that far surpasses what forecasters had expected. In fact, these numbers have set a brand new record. Unfortunately, much of this is clouded by the fact that there are now new cases of COVID-19 starting to hit states across the country. Here’s more on this report from The Washington Examiner: “Looking beyond the June employment data, worrisome signs have emerged in recent days regarding a pullback in store traffic and spending likely linked to the resurgence of COVID-19,” said Mark Hamrick, a senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com. “While the economy is widely thought to be rebounding now that we’ve quietly slipped into the third quarter, the strength and sustainability of the rebound remain at risk.” Perhaps most troubling, Thursday’s report showed a higher number, 2.8 million, of job losses described as permanent. In previous months of the pandemic, around 90% of job losses had been described as temporary, suggesting that the workers hoped to go back to their old jobs once the pandemic passed. Nearly two-fifths of the new jobs being added to the June report are in the leisure and hospitality industries, both of which had taken a massive beating from the lockdowns at the height of the pandemic. These jobs are still being threatened, however, due to the rise of new cases of this horrific virus that just doesn’t seem to want to go away. Employment in retail rose by 740,000 last month, after a gain of 372,000 in May and losses totaling 2.4 million in…
