“We have received a complaint that East Central University’s Kathryn P. Boswell Memorial Chapel has permanent religious iconography on display,” the letter states. “These displays include Latin crosses on the top of and inside the building, Bibles, and a Christian altar. While it is legal for a public university to have a space that can be used by students for religious worship so long as that space is not dedicated solely to that purpose, it is a violation of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to display religious iconography on government property. Please remove or cover the religious displays and items.”
However, after receiving backlash, university officials said they will hold off on removing the religious icons for now. “We moved too quickly,” said Katricia Pierson, ECU president. “We regret not taking time to pause and thoughtfully consider the request and the results of our actions on all of the students, faculty and community members who we serve.” Pierson said initially the university removed some items to show support for all cultures and religious beliefs. The chapel is used for various religions, student clubs and events. “This requires a more thoughtful and deliberate approach to the request,” Pierson said. “That will be our next step.”

Now they are coming after Churches and Crosses. Where does this insanity end. What exists that in not a trigger point for our current crop of imbeciles. What next, music ? ethnic food ? clothing brands ? Haircut, length of ones stride ? Bottled water or tap ?. The absurdity is beyond comprehension. We as a Nation are at the precipice.... freefall comes next. www.youtube.com... I realize this is from a month ago. Momentum is building. where's it end ?

Ever live near a church doing the blooming dongs every 15 minutes?.
We all have some way how to tell the time now we don't need to know every 15 ruddy minutes through the night.
