Re: “Harding responds on blocking gay website

@arkansas panic fan

"I am not trying to shut anyone up, just stating the obvious that it is a PRIVATE university and they can make their rules as such."

A non-point. Nobody is arguing that they can't. They're arguing it's unethical, bigoted and evil. If your point is that they're allowed to be evil and they're open about being evil, then yes, we get your point, such as it is. Good luck with that.

Cheers.

Re: “Harding responds on blocking gay website

The rather plaintive cries that Harding is within its rights to be bigoted and discriminatory are both true and irrelevant.

Customers have the right to complain, regardless of whether or not they knew about the policy going in or not. Pointing out hypocrisy (do they forbid shellfish and divorcée's as well?), and demanding a more ethical policy is rooted in freedom of speech. Those that try to shut people up because "it's a private university" forget what it means to be private: your customers are allowed to get upset about bad policies and highlight your inadequacies. Lose too many customers, and you'll go out of business.

Seriously, stone-age ethics in 2011? WTF?
