    Probably White's stacks of impressive academic achievements. The guy recently requested a cut in his own pay to balance CSU's budget as well, which shows a level of personal integrity that this nation is lacking. I'm also finding it very difficult to believe this orientation supervisor since I cannot find this alleged policy, nor am I finding any reason to give the benefit of a doubt to this guy. He gets thrown into the spotlight for a big societal no-no in this country, conveniently points the finger at the big suit to take the blame off of him, and we're supposed to believe this guy? Show me evidence that this is White's policy, and we can move on from there.

    Personally, I don't have a problem with this alleged policy if it prohibits the open display of all religious items, regardless of the religion it represents.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I suppose this is the case for most people who get their news exclusively from source's such as MSNBC_

    If I posted examples of persecution by your standards, I could include Romans feeding Christians to lions in the colosseum_

    But such historical extremes aren't necessary with so many modern day examples still occurring regularly_
    LOL...where are these horrible ATTACKS upon christians in the US? Let's see them...PRODUCE!!!

    The point is, this is what you have as an example, this is your standard, a young girl is told by a single administrator to not display a religious icon.....and you start talking about Romans and lions!

    Which ones? Where are these examples? Show me these attacks by "non-believers" in the US.

    So far we have a little girl.....and her gold cross....being told not to display it....by an college employee.

    The horror...the horror......

    ...and which was instantaneously reversed. "Hardcore" is not exactly how I'd describe The War on Christianity™.

    Do you realize your irrational hate and fear of Christians reinforces their "victim" status?!

    yes. Christians pretty much own this country. no amount of crying victim is going to change this fact.
    Such irrational hate and fear of Christianity is indicative of those with poor or disrupted cognitive abilities_

    Is your hate and fear truly warranted? Have Christians personally; wronged you? harmed you? taken from you?

    The far-left believes hate and fear creates followers which are more emotional, therefore more dedicated_

    Did you ever consider the possibility that your hatred of religion might be the result of Marxist indoctrination?!

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry reading this. Marxist indoctrination? Do you actually know any Marxists?

    Noting that Christians are the majority is fair. Noting that nearly everything favors us over other religions is also fair. There's no reason to go all defensive Marxist mode.


    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Food for Thought__Had I not posted this incident you would have never heard about it either_

    So I'm not in the least bit surprised of your ignorance to just how common this occurrence actually is_

    Do you recall what I told you earlier?:

    You are very poorly informed, Gimme!

    perhaps your mean spiritd hatefulness is a result of fascist indoctrination?

    You are very poorly informed, Gimme!
    Not only are you not backing up a claim of it happening all the time, you still fail to comprehend that it in no way compares to REAL oppresion.

    And PS, Huffington, MSNBC, yadda yadda DID cover it, and I saw this yawner at Huff before you posted your faux outrage.
