what campus would jesus preach hate at? and who would he single out as a “slut”?

I was happy to see this morning that our local institution of higher learning, Eastern Michigan University, was being reported on in the “Chicago Tribune.” That is, I was happy until I read the article, which is about a campus infestation of “hate speech” spewing street preachers. According to the article, “people known or perceived to be gay, lesbian, Jewish or Muslim were targeted by the group,” which claims to be with Soulwinners Ministries.

Here’s a clip from the website explaining their Save Our Students campaign, of which this visit to Ypsilanti is a part:

Daily, on college campuses, this country’s future presidents, pastors, professionals, are spoon-fed the strychnine of satan’s soul-damning, Christ-denying, lies, beneath the sugar-coated guise of “science” and “secular humanism”.

Daily, on college campuses, this country’s future policy makers, parents, are injected with insidious ideologies, inoculating them to sodomy, same-sex marriage, fornication, abortion, under the demonic deception denoted “diversity” and “tolerance.”

Something must be done to stem this satanic floodtide of lies threatening to drown and damn this country’s youth!

EMU President Susan Martin has indicated that she would be participating in a town hall style event on Wednesday called “Beyond Tolerance.” Details on that event, as well as comments by members of the EMU community can be found at the website EMU Talk.

Fortunately, from what I understand, the group has moved on to their next stop — Wayne State University.

[With any luck, EMU won’t suffer too much from the bad press that comes along with such attacks. There are, after all, much more salacious things to report on here in Michigan today, like the fellow caught “receiving sexual favors” from a car wash vacuum. Given the choice between the two, I have to think that “USA Today” would go with the vacuum story.]

And, for the record, I believe these folks have a right to express their beliefs, make asses of themselves, etc. I believe, however, they cross the line when they begin singling people out and attacking them verbally.

    Because the almighty God who loves us enough to let his own son be crucified for us feels defensive all the time and threatened by everything. Good news.

    “…I believe these folks have a right to express themselves, make asses of themselves, etc. I believe, however, they cross the line when they begin singling people out and attacking them.”

    Yes. I think “Beyond Tolerance” puts it nicely. A close analogue would be the KKK.

    I thought being slutty was just part of going to college. When stuck in Putnam Hall and without a car, there’s nothing much to do other than people watch at the Eastern Eateries and “that”.

    These people are al over the UM as well. I usually just laugh at them and think lewd thoughts.

    Damn. I wish I’d known they were here. I suck at identifying sl-ts.

    Why is Murf allowed to say “slutty”, but I can’t say “sl-ts”?

    Considering the statistics we’ve all seen regarding what’s going on behind the scenes at so-called “Christian” schools, wouldn’t you say these folks ventured unnecessarily far from home and deep behind enemy lines? They’re obviously not operating under a “clear and hold” strategy.

    Whenever I see that group of guys yelling at the corner of North University and State Street in Ann Arbor, I wonder what their wives are doing all day. I imagine they must be encouraging their obnoxious husbands to go out and pretend to be saving souls. It must be the only peace and quiet their families get at home. That, or their wives are out…um, let’s just say ‘looking for less obnoxious husbands.’
