Allegheny College march responds to homosexual slur on doors



Published: Thu, March 17, 2011 @ 8:45 a.m.

MEADVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Hundreds of students and faculty have marched across the Allegheny College campus to call attention to an anti-homosexual slur written on dormitory doors twice in recent weeks.

Officials at the college in Meadville say they’re still investigating the incidents which occurred in mid-February and again earlier this month.

Wednesday night’s march was organized by a campus group called Queers ’n Allies in cooperation with several other campus groups.

College president James Mullen says the investigation is ongoing.

The Meadville Tribune says students whose doors were targeted with the word aren’t commenting publicly because they want to maintain their privacy.

They all marched across the campus? Oh no! Next we'll be told they even stamped their feet in anger!

Such fragile egos. This is liberalism, teaching that this is a world that can be made perfect. When in reality, no amount of marches and sloganeering will change what is. And what is happens to be an imperfect world made up of imperfect people. These protesters have to come to grips with reality: there are bigots and there always will be bigots.

What they are, they are. And as for faculty marching, is this part of their jobs or shouldn't they be in their class rooms teaching instead of politicizing their students? This is higher education? It seems that in other countries, we hear of more students studying math, science, physics, and other good stuff.

Anybody wonder why SB5 exists in Ohio?

Perhaps the solution is to ban heterosexuals at Allegheny ? The clash between heterosexuals and the lifestyles of homosexuals has been ongoing for thousands of years . The college should investigate offensive homosexual behavior at the college and its impact on the student body .
