The Columbia Critic

A place to debate anything we want to. We'll talk Columbia campus issues. We'll talk up the homosexual problem. We'll talk China. And we'll talk without resorting to partisan rhetoric. We may be left. We may be right. But we aren't going to be quoting any party line. We're leading the discussion. But feel free to chime in. Hannity and Colmes this is not.

"Malhotra says her Christian faith compels her to speak out against homosexuality. But the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she's a senior, bans speech that puts down others because of their sexual orientation. Malhotra sees that as an unacceptable infringement on her right to religious expression. So she's demanding that Georgia Tech revoke its tolerance policy. With her lawsuit, the 22-year-old student joins a growing campaign to force public schools, state colleges and private workplaces to eliminate policies protecting gays and lesbians from harassment. The religious right aims to overturn a broad range of common tolerance programs: diversity training that promotes acceptance of gays and lesbians, speech codes that ban harsh words against homosexuality, anti-discrimination policies that require college clubs to open their membership to all."

"Think how marginalized racists are," said Baylor, who directs the Christian Legal Society's Center for Law and Religious Freedom. "If we don't address this now, it will only get worse."

You have got to be kidding me. I was going to write something substantive about this but... I think the comments speak for themselves. The American progressive spirit is under attack by the resurgence of youthful religious faith. We are now trying to fight for our right to be hateful to our fellow man, perhaps someone once said,

""You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law."

"You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you."

Oh. Jesus and St. Paul. Like whoah. The religious advocating hate. Blows me. Blows you.

    Steve Hofstetter actually has a bit on his new CD that relates to the comment on marginalized racists. I thought it was funny when he joked about it; now this is just darn scary.
