Listened to Al Kresta interviewing Dr. Kenneth Howell and his attorney Jordan Lawrence from the Alliance Defense Fund today. One of the things Mr. Howell said was that it was explained to him he was being fired because he violated the policy on inclusiveness. As the old joke goes you have to be really well educated to be able to say something that stupid. So I guess inclusiveness means there can only be one opinion about the morality of homosexual acts. So inclusive has now had the same turnaround as the word bad experienced where being bad could mean really good and cool. To be inclusive now means to be exclusive of an opinion. The school to support its policy on inclusiveness obviously had to fire and exude Dr. Howell. It all makes sense in academic land where everyday is opposite day.
So I urge parents to be inclusive by excluding the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to exclude their children from going there.
Great analogy. And the road to perdition is a wide one. . .
The change, or usurping , of the meaning of words goes on. It used to be a compliment to have one’s child described as “execeptional”, but now? And even the word “gay”.
Did anyone get around to defining the meaning of the word “is”?
As ever, your blog is wholly reprehensible.
Being a Christian means being a martyr. Dying to your self, if not your life. Early Christians were beaten, crucified, fed to lions and exiled. Later Christians were starved to death in concentration camps. Being fired from a tin-horn university but not unexpected. And he got his 15 minutes of fame from it. The blood of martyrs is the seed of the church. Maybe people will hear of his witness and decide that Catholics really do believe in something. They certainly wouldn’t think so from comfortable Catholics like Pelosi, Biden and the Rev John Jenkins CSC.
reprehensible (adjective): Deserving rebuke or censure; blameworthy
Whatcha taking the blame for now, Jeff? Lack of inclusion? No, it can’t be that. I see you left the comment of “a poop” alone. Did you incite violence? Hmmm, no. That’s not it.
I have to admit that I’m glad that trolls are making an effort to use a bigger vocabulary, even if – as usual – they use phrases that are far more grandiose than the occasion warrants.
Yeah, I think this action is going to serve as a sort of precedent; we will see more of this. Of course we can take it for granted that we can still dialogue with individuals though–I think one way around this mentality (besides prayer obviously) is to address the claim that it’s hate-speech, or throw out some statistics which indicate that homosexuality isn’t necessarily a practice conducive to societal harmony (I read somewhere that children of same-sex couples are 5 times more likely to suffer some form of abuse). There are still a few folks out there who can be convinced if you have a sound argument.
