Rishi Kundis article on gay marriage was excellent and indirectly addresses a major problem with some laws today, including the violation of separation of church and state (Gay marriage not complex issue to understand, SN 1/31). It makes sense religious objection should dictate whether same-sex couples are married by a priest in a church that condemns homosexuality.
I would just like to commend Rishi Kundi for his stance on the gay marriage issue (Gay marriage not complex issue to understand, SN 1/31). I feel it is about time someone stepped back and took a look at issues like this. I have been arguing this issue for years and have seemed to be on the losing side every time, however, my beliefs would not let me quit.
The sight was sweet, sitting inside Crisler Arena on Tuesday night watching my Spartans lay a walloping on our rival, the Michigan Wolverines. Not only did our team turn in an almost picture-perfect performance, the crowd support from fellow Sparty fans was amazing.
This is in response to Ebuni N. Mosleys letter Jackson cartoon was degrading (SN 1/26). I have to begin by saying that Mosley completely missed the point of Justin Bilickis cartoon in last Wednesdays paper. Bilickis cartoon in no way depicts black people in a negative manner.
I was recently disturbed by Ebuni N. Mosleys letter, Jackson cartoon was degrading (SN 1/26). What you fail to realize is Bilickis cartoons poke fun at those in the political spotlight, regardless of race or ethnic background. Your letter illustrates a growing problem in America.
The Residence Halls Association has been leading the fight to have peepholes implemented into the residence halls for over ten years. I personally have been involved in many intense discussions and debates concerning the battle for peepholes the last two years - last year as an Akers Hall representative, and this year as the Asian Pacific American Student Organization representative for RHA. We have spent countless long, hard hours working with the Department of Residence Life, University Housing, the administration, Michigan State and East Lansing police departments and many other groups and institutions to get where we are today - to ensure that peepholes could be installed in all of the residence halls. The State News must stop sensationalizing its stories.
President Bushs plan to allow faith-based programs to be federally funded opens the door to discrimination against a variety of religious groups.On Monday, Bush signed two executive orders establishing the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
I would like to quickly address the issue that was raised with regards to RHAs lack of effort on the issue of peepholes (Safe living, SN 1/24). First, I would like to begin by stating a few facts. One, the resolution that RHA passed supporting peepholes was passed unanimously in fall of 1999.
