1. To quote Commander Scott, “It’s Green!”
2. If you go to a college belonging to a religious tradition, whether it’s Jewish, Mennonite, delaSalle or Rice Christian Brothers, or Jesuit, you have to expect to see their history blazoned on the campus. In our case, it is Pere delaSalle instructing a youth, and the Lourdes grotto. In the case of St. Louis, it is Pere deSmet (and i’m sure other Jesuit iconography, including the sainted Founder). If you don’t like it, I’m sure that there are other universities that do not display religious imagery, and emphasize the religious nature of their history and mission, their vision of the past, and of their future, that would be more than happy to take them as transfer students. Tell them, “Anathema sit” and dust them off of your hands.

[JR: Laugh. It’s like these people are insane. It’s like going to a bar and demanding abstinence. BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt), aren’t we commanded to “love”? So you can’t “curse them”, but patiently treat them like the petulant crabby brats that they are. Eventually they will either “learn”, “grow up”, or “go away”. IMHO all equally acceptable. I like the Quaker and Amish for their tolerance. Thanks for reading and participating; it gets lonely here in Virtual Jasper Newsroom.]
