    Looks like religious direction and guidance is still directing Notre Dame to me. If the religious leaders have the final say.../shrug

    Yeah, so what? So they have a board that oversees the University by laws, and academic activities. I assure you that the University is doctrinally run by the Church.

    It's not run by the church. If you stick a cross on the front of googles office building it doesn't turn them into a church. There is a difference between the church and a private institution that declares itself a particular religion.

    If the board of directors were picked from church officials and members of a congregation and then run according to the rules of that church, it would come pretty close. Bad analogy is bad.

    If you look closer you'll see that the board is half religious and half not, so it's not controlled by the church, though the church has a good amount of control. Is it part of the church? No, it isn't.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    My oh my!

    EXCLUSIVE: 140 Companies Drop Advertising From Rush Limbaugh [Update: 142]

    "ThinkProgress has obtained an internal memo from Premiere Radio Networks listing 96 national companies that have “specifically asked” their advertisments not be played during the Rush Limbaugh Show. Premiere is the distributor of Limbaugh’s program. The advertisers have also requested to be excluded from other right-wing hosts including Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. According to the memo, the listed companies’ advertisements should be excluded from these programs because they have been “deemed to be offensive.”

    "Previously, ThinkProgress has reported that 50 companies requested their advertising be pulled from the Rush Limbaugh show following his sexist attacks on Sandra Fluke. The publication of the memo adds an additional 90 companies to the list of companies that have dropped Limbaugh"

    Do not forget the under currents of misogyny by certain folks since this thread started. While not funny? It is a bit amusing those try to act as if they are pro-women

    Excellent point. And they obviously are fooling very few with their tactics.
