Way to go, religious right. Has anyone at this alleged Christian college ever heard of Jesus and read his teachings? It sure doesn't sound like it.

Sounds like they belong to the same church as Palin-which demonizes other religions (literally!) and wishes to end the separation of church and state.

What judgmental comments! George Fox University works hard to break down barriers that keep people with differences from understanding each other. This incident is in no way representative of the school. Both students and administration have spoken LOUDLY against these actions.
