Some of you remember that embarrassing episode, which involved the removal of CR posters advertising a speech by Dan Flynn, author of ?Why the Left Hates America.? Because the posters used the term ?hates,? GU administrators ran around campus ripping them down like a bunch of hysterical children. The argument that ?hate? can be eradicated by passing ?hate speech? codes, which ban the use of the word ?hates? is an idea so stupid that only a PhD could take it seriously.
But, fortunately, President Spitzer intervened and rescinded the punishment of the CRs who stood accused of engaging in ?hate speech? for simply using the word ?hates.? So why can?t President Spitzer intervene and mandate the recognition of a Christian pro-life group and a Christian Legal Society at a Christian university?
The answer is simple: He spent his political capital last November and can?t face the militantly anti-Christian, pro-gay, and pro-abortion activists who have taken over Gonzaga Law School.
President Spitzer?s desire for the approval of others is evident in the form responses he sends to pro-lifers who criticize his refusal to intervene in the controversy at the law school. He tries to persuade them that he is a good man by reminding them that he is pro-life and always has been.
President Spitzer is pro-life. He is also a good man. And he will become a great man as soon as he is willing to bear the ostracism of the Leftists activists who presently control Gonzaga Law School.
Great men are willing to attack evil, regardless of the consequences. Pope John Paul II provides an example of such greatness with his willingness to label homosexual marriage as part of an ideology of evil. Needless to say, if he made those statements at Gonzaga University Law School, he would be hung upon a cross and crucified.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn once said that ?In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand-fold in the future.?
That willingness to keep silent may well be explained in another quote by Solzhenitsyn. He said this in 1973: ?If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart??
So, tonight I am asking you?
Suddenly, members of the Gonzaga Police Unit (GPU) grabbed a hold of Dr. Obvious. They threw him to the ground and shouted ?You are under arrest.? After replying, ?Me? What for?? Dr. Obvious was taken to Room 107 to await interrogation. When he arrived in the interrogation room, he was promptly sent back to Room 107. This ritual was repeated for several days until Dr. Obvious went mad. He never collected his honorarium. He was also discharged from his job as a Wal-Mart greeter in Boise, Idaho. His whereabouts are presently unknown.
