OPINION

Rape should be addressed by men

I want to thank the nine men who attended the men’s forum at “Take Back The Night,” as well as those men who supported the event as a whole. Sadly, few men were this supportive.

OPINION

Messages should be sabotaged

I am writing in response to Michonne L. Omo’s column (“Message shouldn’t 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 Christ’s 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.

OPINION

Column displayed much ignorance

To say the least, it is unsettling to know such ignorance displayed in John La Fleur’s 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.

OPINION

Bias panel

A panel appointed to review the undercover investigation of a campus group will do little to help resolve this situation.MSU President M.

OPINION

Institution of marriage is for heterosexuals

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.

OPINION

Original messages were offensive

In Tuesday’s 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 shouldn’t 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.

OPINION

SEJ investigation was justifiable

I am writing this letter to provide a counterpoint to the opinions that have been expressed about the recent infiltration of Students for Economic Justice by the MSU police.

OPINION

More honesty

New developments make it evident that MSU officials were acting in the university’s best interest when they approved an undercover investigation of a student group.

OPINION

Ticket U

An increase in student season tickets for football is not a big deal. A full-season student football ticket will cost $99, $16.50 a game, for next season, up from the $84, $14 a game, charged for the last two seasons.

OPINION

Increase in ticket prices isnt right

I am writing in regards to the MSU Athletic Department’s decision to raise football ticket prices for the upcoming year (“Football ticket prices increase,” SN 4/16). I don’t believe in their philosophy that in order to create a more competitive football team, more money needs to be raised through ticket prices.

OPINION

Players left for more than money

I was disappointed with Keith Dunlap’s column in The State News on Monday (“Richardson, Randolph must really love money,” SN 4/16). I don’t believe Dunlap has put himself in the shoes of either Jason Richardson or Zach Randolph and looked at the world through their eyes.
