A university didn't call an adjunct back, oh yes it must be because she is an atheist. There are certainly not 40 other people who could be adjunct instructors to take her place in a second.

"Professor Bradford is stupid for debating over a cross. If she does not like it, she should get another job. That is good that she felt harassed [sic] after that email because that is the same way we as Christians felt. Welcome to our world. I feel bad for you Sissy Bradford."

Such Christian compassion.

Christians in America have absolutely NO idea what it feels like to be persecuted. None. At all. There should be a law that allows you to slap a person in the face if they say they are being persecuted, which in turn will mean they are being persecuted.

If you want to be Christian and be persecuted, go to Iraq and practice Christianity. There seems to be a church bombing every month. That is real persecution. You are playing Russian Roulette with faith.

Dear ch­a­ris­et[nospam-﹫-backwards]l­i­ame*co­m,

Why'd you drop that hat? You sound like you still drink that fruit punch that comes in a can and you have to poke two holes in it. I bet your couch is the wrong kind of plaid, etc. Why don't you get a monkey and make it hate you. The internet thinks you smell, and i'm on it (the internet).

As an athiest I'll say this, everyone in this story is a loser. The professor for getting her panties in a bunch over a couple of crosses that aren't hurting her, the "Good Christians" for threatening her, and the school for firing her.

AverageAmericanGuy: It's not the objection to crosses that bothers the prof "Christians" in the article. It was objection to the religious meaning behind them in a state-run setting.

Religion Atheism, even agnosticism, scares atheists (some) religionists. It reminds them of the God-shaped hole in their soul that some people don't believe them.

It's called the establishment cause and has been clarified by SCOTUS that "government should not prefer one religion to another, or religion to irreligion." - David Souter writing for the majority.

Since this is a state university then the erection of religious symbols is the same as government endorsement of religion. Hence, the 1st applies as Congress cannot pass any law to allow those symbols of endorsement to be posted.

Lot's of stupid to go around.

We're the crosses really hurting anyone? Seriously? If you're a practitioner of another faith, or agnostic, or atheist, does the decor really matter that much?

Otoh, do the crosses have to be there? Is your faith so fragile that you need constant reminders of it plastered everywhere? That someone else should have a different opinion than you is so scary, perhaps you should find a religion that puts you more at ease.

These people need to farking relax, the lot of 'em.

Reminds me of what happened at William and Mary with Gene Nichol and the Wren chapel cross. He put it away in storage, and the Board of Visitors (the regents) gave him the boot. Except being that this was Virginia and not Texas, the students responded by walking out of classes to protest the booting of the cross-remover.

Very true. But interestingly the exact same thing could be said about atheists in America. Try going to Iraq and denouncing state related public religion. See? It's all relative. Amazing how your bitter statement about Christians applies exactly the same to poor persecuted atheists.

BTW - homosexuals in America have absolutely NO idea what it feels like to be persecuted. None. At all. Try going to Iraq and having a gay pride parade.

etc. etc. etc.

Essentially, what you are saying is that America is a very civil and tolerant nation, in a globally relative sense. And I agree with you.

How does the congress decide on how to provide funding for state institutions?

They appear to be voting on some kind of codifed document, I'm not sure what it's called.

Based on what we read from the the article, we have no idea why she was "fired".
I suspect that lots of other adjunct professors were similarly "fired" by that school recently.

Nope. Religion scares us because religious people tend to be fanatical. And in Texas, fanatics like to lynch people regardless of their skin color. Outside of Texas, fanatics murder people who disagree with them. We are afraid of religion because religious people are unpredictable murderers.

Well except there are a fair number of examples of actual persecution, such as this one. You'd have to look really hard to find examples of Christians here being persecuted even in a small way.

BTW - homosexuals in America have absolutely NO idea what it feels like to be persecuted. None. At all. Try going to Iraq and having a gay pride parade.

You could pick a ton of locations in America where, while short of what might happen in Iraq, doing that would lead to some very negative outcomes.

I agree that that is what he was saying. Also, he was complaining about people who are angry that it is.

I'm not in the mood to make a logical argument. I'm not in the mood to talk about the article. I'm not in a mood to sort out the good from the bad of any particular group. I'm half drunk and fully lazy, so I'll just say one thing, more out of compulsion than anything.

Christians suck.
