    Doesn’t this fall under the classification of harassment?

    Well, somebody had to send up a trial balloon. Just imagine if Piper had caved like all the other college presidents! That would have been the location for the next protest.

    It’s beginning to pop up all over. The other day in a small town, an RTM (Representative Town Meeting) member stood up in a Board of Education meeting and complained she was “offended” that she wasn’t allowed to speak until the public comment portion of the meeting. Of all the people who should be familiar with Roberts Rules of Order or even Mason’s! And this was an older woman, too!

    Let’s buy the sidewalk and we’ll order the pro-life advocates off of it.
    Two weeks later: You know, we don’t like those conservative students. Let’s order them off the sidewalk….
    A month later: Hey, some Christian student really ticked me off. They shouldn’t be able to use the sidewalk, either…
    And on and on and on.

    I’m wondering exactly what Created Equal was doing that was so “militant”. Anybody know?

    The short answer is “A lost soul who needs prayer.”

    The longer answer is someone who is secure enough in her beliefs that she doesn’t have to go out and verbally attack or confront Christians. If you want more of a description, please read C. S. Lewis’ account of his journey to Whipsnade Zoo in “Surprised by Joy”.

    Attacking Dawkins for his stand against the movie theaters does not help Christianity. Yes, he’s an atheist; yes, he’s misguide in calling prayer “trivial”; and yes, he’s attacked Christianity a number of times in the past and probably will again in the future. That’s all a matter of record.

    Rather than getting whipped into a frenzy, it’s important to think about what he was saying and WHY he said it. He’s not defending Christianity, he’s defending FREE SPEECH. The article clearly says that his motive was not to offend Christians, or pass judgement on prayer but to protest the censoring of free speech.

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but instead of criticizing him, I should be praying for him. Will he be saved or repent some day? I don’t know. Thankfully, that’s God’s job, not mine. I just have to remember that like him…”I once was lost, but now am found; was blind but now I see…”

    Okay, so Black Lives Matters wants justice for Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.

    Let’s assume they want the death penalty because one person is claiming BLM wants an eye for an eye, etc. They may be in for a surprise…

    and even convictions of the murderers sometimes will not leave the survivors feeling closure.

    Also, one has to factor in that these BLMs are not related to Martin or Brown in any way, so Martin and Brown are actually a cause, and not really people. Because Martin and Brown have become a rallying cry, the facts simply don’t matter.

    And sadly, just like the claims of oppression through slavery 150 years after the ending of slavery in this country, no matter what reparations are offered, they will never be enough. It’s their own resentment and anger that chains them, not anything that the rest of us do or say.

    Actually, I was talking with the activity coordinator at a local nursing home and she pointed out that the home gets a ton of requests from groups to come in to sing or entertain the residents around Christmas, but very few during the remainder of the year. There are some dedicated people out there who do worship services on a regular basis, but I bet there is plenty of room for school groups, choirs and others to brighten the residents lives during the rest of the year.

    I suspect the playwright has already garnered enough negative press to last a life time just from the Internet. Oh yeah, there’ll be schools just chomping at the bit to do his play, but really, why would any group want to tangle with him and possibly lose weeks of hard work just because….???

    I vote for both!

    @Displaced, From what I am seeing in these campus videos, a solid high school course could actually take the place of college courses.

    The interesting thing is that this was all kicked off by some nameless person driving by in a pick up truck that yelled a racist epitaph. No one knows who it was, whether that person was actually a student, or why it happened. But that led from one thing to another and now two top officials have resigned followed by some left wing nut professor ran her mouth off on video. I wonder who is bankrolling this?

    She’s busy right now packing her bags in order to slink back to UMass Amherst.

    Sadly, that is so true. I often wonder if these baby boo-hoos realize the amount of anger they are carrying around can cause a bunch of fun stuff like ulcers, high blood pressure and heart issues.

    You might find Kahn Academy interesting. Their courses are free.

    However, sometimes, the drivers in the right lane play games, too. I had an instance where I was trying to pass someone in the right lane and the idiot matched my speed, so I couldn’t get past him. The only reason I finally did make it past him was because an exit & entrance ramp were coming up near a State Police barracks, so he finally slowed down and I got away from him.

    Oddly enough, I remember I was stuck in a major traffic snarl on I-95 when I first heard the song on a local radio station. It was a miserable day and the song really gave me a boost! I still love it.

    I did, because she helpfully numbered them. Not everyone has a Facebook account.

    Randy – would you hire someone who sued a major university and ended up with either the administration resigning or a major court settlement? It doesn’t matter what college or university the person comes from. For a private corporation, someone like that could end up taking the company into litigation Twilight Zone. The point of a private business is to either create a market for a product or service, sell the product or service, or deliver said product or service and have enough profits at the end of the day to support the payroll. It’s not about having some special snowflake whining to a judge that “Joey didn’t hold the elevator for him/her/it or Billy told a joke in the office that he/she/it didn’t like because the snowflake is (fill in cause du jour) in court.

    And maybe losing a million buck in revenue will make people wake up and smell the coffee-tinged battery acid they’ve brewed for themselves. It’s not until the alumni, the donors and the parents realized, “Hey, wait just one hot minute here!” I’m paying these shenanigans.” and pull their kids out that the colleges will begin to pay attention.
