Leave comments to let me know what you think, and SIGN THE PETITION (copies will automatically got to President DeGioia asking him to take action on the issues raised by students at the various meetings and in the open letter).

As a Georgetown alum, I’m proud of the way students have responded to these attacks (except for the likes of you, Rick P, for which you are featured prominently in my commentary). Good job!

The fact that this is even happening is a mar on the reputation of a great University and shows intolerance that should not be present there. If it doesn’t stop soon and a strong message isn’t sent from its leaders against these actions, I fear for the University’s future among the greater institutions of higher learning.

I, as a Christian that wholeheartedly believes in God and his love; am even more socked and appalled that such violent acts are committed in God’s name.

I’m frankly quite tired of those who claim to be religious using the sacred belief in God as a means of intolerance. At what point will we as Christians get tired of individuals like Rick P. hijacking the Christian belief. “blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth”; “love thy neighbor as you love yourself”; “let any man who has not sinned cast the first stone” etc. Those are all teachings of our lord and savior that have been tossed by the wayside in exchange for bigotry, hatred and other forms of vile rhetoric. God is the man that loved the very man that he knew was betraying him. God is the one that loved Peter even though he denied him.

God loves us all – Gay, Straight, Bi, Trans, Tall, Short, Black, White and ALL other forms of idiotic divisions that we as humans have created. His requirement is that we love him and each other as he loves us. He does NOT require us to hate each other or attack each other for his namesake!

Micah Chapter 6 verse 8 says: “He has shown you what is good. And what does the lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your god.

Where in there do you interpret that to say or imply “God requires you to senselessly attack another human being”?

I encourage you, Rick P and others who share your viewpoint, to remember that which is commanded of you by God – to judge not less ye be judged. I’m quite sure that you have fallen short of your Christian responsibilities and have disappointed God. That in which you also do NOT deserve to be attacked. Provided you were ever attacked, you also do NOT deserve anyone to rationalize the said attack in any way, shape or form which is what you are indeed doing.

For the record, here is the Merriam-Webster definition of the dreaded “sodomy” you so decry: “anal or oral copulation with a member of the same or opposite sex”

Did you read that? Then I ask you, Rick P, to demonstate at least a shred of intellectual and moral consistency: Would you condemn, as broadly as you do gay people, all those straight people who also engage in oral sex? Do note that the definition of sodomy makes no distinction between married or unmarried oral copulation. Do you pledge that you have never received, and never will receive, a blow job from your opposite-sex partner, for life?

Anything less is sheer bigotry and hypocrisy.
