College of William and Mary Accommodates Religious Bigots
The Title of this article in the Washington Post is

School's Move Toward Inclusion Creates a Rift
But it is far from about inclusion. It is about pandering to religious bigots.
WILLIAMSBURG -- The cross is small, perhaps no more than 18 inches above its base, its gleaming brass surface marked only by an inscription.

But the cross, which has graced the altar table in a chapel at the College of William and Mary for decades, has come to symbolize a passionate debate about religious tolerance ever since the school's president ordered the cross removed from historic Wren Chapel.

Gene R. Nichol, who became president of the state university in July 2005, said he wanted to make the chapel welcoming to students of all faiths. So in October he ordered that the cross be stored in the chapel's sacristy unless someone asked to display it during a service.

Nichol said the campus population has become more diverse, with growing numbers of Muslims, Hindus and people of other faiths on campus, some of whom felt put off by the cross. Until his decision, students or others who used the chapel could ask to have the cross removed for weddings or other services.



That last paragraph is what I find objectionable.

Anyone who feels put off by a Christian symbol in a CHRISTIAN CHURCH could use some lessons in religious tolerance. Anyone who feels such an attitude should be pandered to could also use the same.

What would be the response of the academic community if Jewish, Hindu and Muslim icons were removed from their respective places of worship because they might put off Christian students?

Is there any doubt that the result would be a resounding outcry of condemnation of the religious bigotry this would indicate?

Anyone,who is put off by the religious symbols of a faith other than their own, needs to refrain from entering those places of worship.

Anyone, who as a matter of course assumes that students of other religions are religious bigots to that extreme needs to be removed from office.

Respect for different religions must include respect for the religions and symbols held sacred
by many Americans or it is only words.

Somali Islamists Declare War on Ethiopia
From IRIS Blog to my email in box to you.


Islamists have not skipped a beat since taking over Somalia. Now they have declared war on neighboring Ethiopia:



Somali Islamic Leader Issues War Declaration on Ethiopia



Somalia is now in "a state of war," the country's Islamic leader said Thursday, despite an earlier pledge to return to peace talks with the government.



As shelling continued near the government's garrison town of Baidoa, Sheik Hassan Dahir Aweys called for all Somalis to join the fight against neighboring Ethiopia.



"All Somalis should take part in this struggle against Ethiopia," he told The Associated Press. "If you cannot fight you can contribute in other ways to the effort," Aweys said by telephone.



Three days of clashes between Islamic fighters and government forces who are backed by Ethiopian troops have left more than 100 people dead.


Wake up, world. Islamists see the world entirely through the prism of jihad, and therefore only know one policy: aggression. Most jihads are easy to repulse: simply recycle the Reagan Cold War policy of opposing the jihad everywhere. Shipments of arms to every country under jihad attack would shut down most aggression immediately, without any commitment of American soldiers in most cases. Unfortunately the West is operating under a Leftist paradigm and therefore have the policy of throwing the blacks in southern Sudan, the Jews in Israel, the Christians in Lebanon, etc. under the jihadi bus as a form of appeasement. Muslims will not "like" us for this, or for building a "mini-mosque" in Israel's airport, or serving only Halal food in public schools in Copenhagen and Berkshire. They will just interpret it as proof that infidels will respond with dhimmitude when approached with aggression. As the Koran instructs.

Note: You will note that I do not have my usual Haloscan information here. Angelfire is experiencing some problems I can post but cannot edit or add to posts. Since I cannot determine the permanent URL until after I post I will have to post blind for the duration

"Der er et yndigt land" (There Is A Lovely Land)


Words by: Adam Gottlob Oehlenschlager
Music by: Hans Ernst Kr?yer
Adopted: 1844

"Derer et yndigt land" was first performed for a large gathering of Danes in 1844, and became popular quickly with the Danish people. It was adopted later that year by the Danish government as a national anthem, but not the sole national anthem. This anthem is on equal status with "Kong Christian",which is both the national and royal anthem.

When the Danish anthem is usually performed or sung, the first verse is played in its entirety, then it is followed by the last four lines of the last verse. (This is true whether the lyrics are sung or not



Recentlty I have been posting music to Illustrate the Diversity of America, this week I have a different motive to express Solidarity with DENMARK


I maintain my Support of Denmark, and will later today, post links to and my thoughts about a Danish Editorial "We are being pissed upon by Per Nyholm "

I think I shall title my Post, "There is no "But" in "Freedom of Speech".

A Date Which Will Live In Infamy
My own words could never do this Day justice instead I choose to remember these.

December 7, 1941 - a date which will live in infamy - the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked

Yet even the eloquence of Franklin D. Roosevelt's Infamy Speech, pales before the simple reality of this.




Take a moment to remember the fallen and while you do so, you may also meditate on these images as well.








Our Nation is at War, it seems to be somehow more difficult for some Americans to remember this fact.
Harder than it used to be, that is.

DIVERSITY DOUBLE-TALKIVY'S 'INCLUSION' EXCLUDES MILITARY
Don't have to worry whether these folks Support the Troops but not the War,they do neither.
By MATT SANCHEZ

December 4, 2006 -- DiD you hear the one about the Marines that Columbia University invited to campus for Fleet Week?

Not any time in the last few decades, you didn't.

But you might have heard the one about the Marine who was told by a fellow Columbia student that he was stupid for joining the military because he's Hispanic and didn't realize he was being used for cannon fodder.

It's actually kind of funny - but when it happened to me during Columbia's Activities Day last year, I was fighting mad. Not because I was publicly humiliated in front of several hundred of my fellow classmates (any devil dog who has spent a summer on Parris Island gets used to insults), but because of what the incident showed about New York's most prestigious university.

On the surface, Columbia is all for diversity (good, very good) and completely opposed to intolerance (bad, really bad). On any given day, eager undergrads can speak out for Starbucks employees forced to make coffee with non-ergonomic espresso machines, or call for the school to install non-gender-specific bathrooms.

The administration? Well, I've heard Mary McGee, the dean of students, speak with great consternation about the need to be sure that no student populations were marginalized or excluded. To illustrate the point, she pondered changing all the doorknobs on campus to accommodate those with physical limitations who might literally be "shut out." She said that, to date, no student had complained about the smooth metallic doorknobs, "but they should not have to"

I figured that a dean so concerned about student inclusion would certainly look into a simple case of student harassment. You see, I had a problem: fellow student Monique Dols.

Back on Activities Day, Dols didn't just lecture me on my stupidity in serving our nation; she also yelled that I was a baby killer. For a Marine, being called a killer is almost flattering - but for months Dols and her friends had been disrupting pretty much every event I attended.

Most famously, her crowd rushed the stage at another group's event, preventing the guest (from the border-enforcement advocates, the Minutemen) from delivering his remarks, and nearly causing a riot.

That day, Dols claimed to be protesting for the recognition of the humanity of illegal Hispanic immigrants. Yet somehow her concern doesn't apply to a citizen Hispanics proud to serve this country and eager to go to college.

And the Columbia administration seems to agree. Despite bringing national embarrassment to the university with her actions, she's gone completely unpunished.

The university has chalked it up to free speech. All points of view are welcome at Columbia, from Venezuelan presidents to voices from vaginas.

Unless you're in the military.

But Columbia's hypocrisy on inclusiveness isn't just a matter of the apparent immunity that Dols & Co. enjoy. The school also has no faculty member who specifically deals with veteran affairs.

Sure, Curtis Rodgers, the dean of admissions, says veterans are a great asset for the Columbia community - and a very nice woman at the bursar's office will help veterans process their GI benefits to pay tuition. Yet when a Marine deployed to Iraq was having problems clearing up an error on his tuition bill, no one on staff was prepared to help him break through the school's bureaucracy.

Columbia veterans would love to invite Marines and sailors onto the campus during next year's Fleet Week - but we don't want them to experience the Columbia version of a sniper attack. The sad fact that they'd face such an assault is something Columbia University just won't own up to.

Matt Sanchez is a corporal in the U.S Marines (Reserve) and a junior at Columbia. Matthew.a.sanchez@gmail.com



Maybe we should contact Columbia and ask them to clarify their "diversity" position?
