Re: “God and gays at Harding University

I agree that everybody has a right to believe whatever they want to believe. Religious dogma is by definition based on faith and not facts so believers can spout whatever they want with no justification. You can believe a genie god zapped creation into existence a few thousand years ago; you can believe in Santa Claus; the Easter Bunny; or that the earth is flat.

Just teaching that under the heading of higher education is a joke.

Re: “God and gays at Harding University

I grew up in Searcy in the late 70's and found that many Harding students came to our high school parties to "have fun". These students were forced to go to Harding by their parents to correct behavior problems. None that I met seemed to want to please Mommy or Daddy.

Few people I have meet in more enlightened areas of the country believed my stories about the total control over the residents rights by the churches in White County.

I got the hell out as soon as possible with blessings from my parents, thankfully. If you want to follow a simple-minded, head in the sand life; then follow the bigoted, hypocrites that "know the truth" about the manner in which you should live. Be sure to include Harding in your plans.

I do, however, feel very sorry for the kids coerced into attending Harding who are not allowed to make an informed decision.
