Most accounts of the Wren Chapel story at the College of William and Mary fail to penetrate to the heart of the problem — the easy acceptance of President Nichol’s absurdity that a Christian cross, simply by existing, can be “offensive.”
No normal person takes offense at the symbols of other people’s religion. In fact, if a student or visitor to William and Mary complained to President Nichol that they saw a Buddha depicted in the library, or that a Jewish student’s room had a mezuzah on the door, he would at a minimum suggest a visit to a psychiatrist.p>As long as people like President Nichol play along with the fiction that Christians give offense by existing, there will be no peace for the structures that they lead. br> — Jim Noble /p>
Mr. Lipscomb does not point out in his article that the current W & M president and his wife have a trail of anti-Christian activism. They both left the Univ. of North Carolina system under a cloud for their anti-Christian activism.p>Where is the outrage from the taxpayers of the Commonwealth of Virginia about this anti-Christian bias? The Board of Visitors is appointed by the political system of the state. The Board of Visitors should be called to account to respond forcefully to this provocation. Do the citizens of Virginia want to see their tax monies used to support the war against Christianity? Virginia was founded as a Christian colony and later state. Like it or not, that is a fact. The Board of Visitors, a state created and funded organization, needs to step up to the plate and invite the W & M president and his wife to seek employment elsewhere. br> — Ken Shreve br> New Hampshire

Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
