    That any number of people, regardless of who they are, think that an argument is valid does not make it so. Validity is not a matter of popular opinion.

    Thus, another TNE swing and miss.
    And your argument of it being invalid because you say so is laughable. You lose for the third time, you're out junior.

    Um...

    -I- never made a claim about the validity of the argument, I merely challneged you to support your claim that it IS valid - a challenge that you have thus far failed miserably to meet, given that all you have to support it are logical fallacies.

    So, if you should ever have something solid in this regard, let us know.

    Qureshi, a Muslim student at the school, is leading the campaign to remove the words. The Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the matter during a meeting next month.


    Another perfect example of liberalism trying to control private organizations on what they can and cannot do.

    What part of Trinity do these students not get?

    Even as a private organization, as consumers the students have the right to criticize service and request changes.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    No question of that at all.

    Lucky for them that they are somwhere that it is OK to question such things, especially when dealing with religion.
