Of course I was - it's trivial. We're talking about an optional assignment in an elective course at the college level. If it was mandatory for the class, or required for graduation, or being forced on elementary school kids then you'd have a legitimate beef, but it's none of those things, so who gives a damn?

My position is that the folks at McMurry University get to make up their own minds and outside groups don't get a vote and should mind their own business. Do you disagree?

You're right, K. I don't give two [poops] about Christ and I don't understand why you're freaking out. But how is this a Christian issue? It seems to me that we have a McMurry U issue that's really nobody elses' business, a TCU issue that's really nobody elses' issue, and a kerfuffle in Iowa that has nothing to do with Christians.

I'm not thinking "fair" so much as "not needlessly, pointlessly stupid and unreasonable."
