    Since when was this liberalism and not free-market capitalism?

    Since when has it become mamby-pamby whiny-bitchy complaining to stand up for what you think is right, and to convince others in similar circumstances to join your cause?

    Since when isn't that the American way?

    Since you disagreed with it, I guess.
    Since when do "customers" go to the school for 4 years, then bitch and moan about 2 words at the school they are "customers" for, while never taking into consideration that they are at TRINITY UNIVERSTIY!!!!

    Did they wake up at the age of 22 and say "Oh look, we have been going to a Christian school for 4 years. Did you know this? We should tell someone. Yeah! Lets stick it to the college we didn't know we were attending for 48 months!"

    Next they are going to go to mass and cry, piss, and moan that the priest is talking about God.

    Why do people try and rationalzie stupidity like this?

    Walk up on stage, get your 8 x 11" piece of paper and go the **** home. Your not gonna change the world with your panzy ass little hissy fit about a couple of words. Obviously these students didn't do enough work while at college to have time to piss and moan about 2 words like this. everyone has some stupid cause they want to fight for nowadays. Shut up, go home and get a real ****ing job.

    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Since they became aware of the words on the diploma, I guess.

    I didn't give my diploma a single thought until I had it in my hands.

    If you're asking why this thread is 3 pages long, since I'm so obviously right and there is no other point, and anything else is rationalizing stupidity, I'm with you.

    If you think it's stupid for these students to want the representation of their education to not contradict their beliefs, then you need to realize that they are not the stupid ones.

    They're asking. Not suing, not threatening. They're asking.

    That's what adults do.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I think most liberals are pretty reasonable in terms of religion in public schools. Only the most fringe element want to remove the words "under god" from the pledge, only the real lunatic fringe think children should not be allowed to pray in school(and the constitution protects the rights of students to do so), most of us have no problem with religious based clubs and so forth.

    Since this is about a private school, I think most of us have a pretty reasonable attitude as well...it's private, the school can do as it chooses in this case.

    The school should do what it wants, but really, why do so many people have to get caught up in crap like this? It's a throw away phrase.

    For real if the school chooses to take the phrase out they do, if they don't then they don't. It really isn't any of our concern.

    Well if this Sidra Quresh is so whacked out about a reference to "Our Lord" then he/she should not attend a " Christian-rooted school ".

    If I enrolled in a Buddist centric school I would expect to see statues of the fat green man laying around and I would have no logical right to complain about the fat green man is his image was on my diploma !!

    Go somewhere else if you don't like it Quresh!!
