...from the Houston Chronicle : “The library director at the University of the Incarnate Word has canceled the library's subscription to The New York Times to protest articles revealing a covert government program to track terrorist financing.” It is tragic that any educational institution, secular or religious, would swallow the stupidity flowing from the neo-crazies, who are so ready to cast the nation’s journal of record as an enemy of the state. A university, by definition, explores the entire universe of ideas. A Christian university with any sense of history would remember that before the Edict of Milan in AD 313, all Christians were deemed “enemies of the state”, the Roman Empire, the “sole superpower” of that time. In fact, followers of Jesus Christ were called “atheists” because they refused to adore the official state-sanctioned gods, particularly the Emperor. Interesting, isn’t it, that Ann Coulter titled her last book “Godless” to describe those who refuse to sacrifice to her tin idol?!? Love it or loathe it, the New York Times is perhaps the most important daily newspaper in the world. The Times makes, as well as reports, news with many of its stories and articles. Such is the case at present. Would you ever hire a recent graduate whose access to this important resource was officially and intentionally denied for four years?...
