    College Students Want 'Our Lord' Phrase Off Diplomas

    A group of students at Trinity University in Texas wants the Christian-rooted school to remove the words "Our Lord" from their diplomas, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    "A diploma is a very personal item, and people want to proudly display it in their offices and homes,” Sidra Qureshi, president of Trinity Diversity Connection, told the Chronicle. “By having the phrase ‘In the Year of Our Lord,' it is directly referencing Jesus Christ, and not everyone believes in Jesus Christ."

    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?

    Removing all religion from schools, colleges and public areas is strictly a liberal cause.

    If this is a private school, then the phrase is perfectly legal and fine and the students have no basis for their argument.

    If it is a public school, the exact opposite is true.

    Re: College Students Want 'Our Lord' Phrase Off Diplomas

    From the school's website:
    Founded in 1869 by Presbyterians, today Trinity is governed by an independent Board of Trustees. Students at this private, residential, co-educational university come from diverse backgrounds and find here an environment that celebrates both individuality and community.
    They are now a secular institution and even then it doesn't matter if they have it on their diploma or not. If the board of trustees decides to alter the diploma or not is a private decision.

    Removing rights from homosexuals is a strictly conservative cause!

    Or maybe blanket statements are usually silly.

    Get real, Islam is no more a terrorist religion than is Christianity, Judaism or any other religion which calls on their particular version of 'God' to protect them.
    Note the latest bunch of lunatics ie: Hutarees that the FBI have just arrested, these people are as much terrorists as are those who blew up the Flight 101 over Lockerbie (Scotland).
