By your logic a conservative leaning individual should never go to law school as it is common knowledge the majority of law programs are more left leaning. The left has made not having health insurance a crime. A liberal leaning individual shouldn't go to church as it is common knowledge the majority of churches are more right leaning. Chick-Fil-A has the obligation to be upfront and honest with their customers, and the LGBT community has the ability to disapprove and stage kiss-ins. As long as we maintain the freedom of speech and the openness of both sides we might be able to someday move PAST this and begin to better understand each other. Never shut the door on communication, any attorney, and some pre-law students know that.
KU is a good place to go, in the end if she wants to go she will go, if she doesn't she won't. I recommend she does what is best for her.
I hate to do this on the Dean's forum, but I'll try to be succinct.
Chick-Fil-A gives millions DIRECTLY to, not a particular politician, but to organizations (actual hate groups -- literally) that seek to criminalize and "repair" homosexuality and maintain existing death penalties in other countries for being LGBT, among other things. When you spend your money at Chick-Fil-A, you are indeed supporting their cause.
There cannot be a mutual understanding for extremists who want to kill people like me.
I have no idea how those examples are related to your mentioning Chick-Fil-A.
This also isn't a "Freedom of Speech" issue. Freedom of Speech is a LEGAL right, under the First Amendment to the federal Constitution, a LEGAL document, meaning protection from GOVERNMENT censorship. This has nothing to do with government censorship/abridgment.
Also, who the heck chooses a law school based on a Chick-Fil-A??
Anyway, you missed my point that this was an inappropriate place and time to post about Chick-Fil-A given the topic just covered and because their actions have been very salient in the media these past couple of weeks. Just be respectful.
