I am writing in response to Michonne L. Omos column (Message shouldnt have been tampered with, SN 4/17). I found her essay hypocritical and a prime example of why such an act as the sabotage of Campus Crusade for Christs chalk messages were necessary. In my opinion, the whole point of writing such offensive things was not to be just childish, but rather to juxtapose the traditional viewpoints of the Christian and non-Christian. There are complaints every year about the chalkings, and every year CCC counters with the argument that the chalk is harmless and can be easily ignored.
To say the least, it is unsettling to know such ignorance displayed in John La Fleurs column exists ( Institution of marriage is for heterosexuals, SN 4/20). In fact, it makes me want to vomit. His definition of marriage is a union from which children are born. First of all, marriage is the union of two people.
I wonder how many readers of this column would object to the legal recognition of incestuous relationships, including states allowing a person to marry one of his/her first cousins or even a sibling. I do not refer to those relationships in which one person forces another to engage in sexual relations with a family member.
In Tuesdays paper, Michonne L. Omo stated in her column that the students who had altered existing Campus Crusade for Christ sidewalk messages were inconsiderate and disrespectful by changing statements like Jesus loves you to Jesus wants you (Message shouldnt have been tampered with, SN 4/17). However, the original CCC messages were as offensive to non-Christians as the altered ones were to Christians.
I am writing in regards to the MSU Athletic Departments decision to raise football ticket prices for the upcoming year (Football ticket prices increase, SN 4/16). I dont believe in their philosophy that in order to create a more competitive football team, more money needs to be raised through ticket prices.
I was disappointed with Keith Dunlaps column in The State News on Monday (Richardson, Randolph must really love money, SN 4/16). I dont believe Dunlap has put himself in the shoes of either Jason Richardson or Zach Randolph and looked at the world through their eyes.
