Professor Robert B. Archibald is being disingenuous at best when he states that “The crux of the matter then is: will faculty who did not sign the petition be treated differently from faculty who did sign the petition? The answer to this question is NO.” Really? How does he know that?
Further, it appears that Professor Archibald may be bucking for a promotion by trying to impress President Gene Nichol with his loyalty. Archibald was once the Acting Dean of the Economics Department at William and Mary.
Archibald also states that “The plain fact of the matter is that a clear majority of William and Mary faculty support the policy.” I do not believe that statement is the truth and invite Archibald to prove it.
If Archibald thinks that “the new policy [not displaying the Bruton Cross in the Wren Chapel] is appropriate for a state-supported institution,” then he is part of the effort to bastardize the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, as are Gene Nichol and his law professor wife Betty Glenn George (both longtime ACLU activists).p>It is a disgrace that a professor of economics (Archibald) and two law professors (Nichol and George) have so little understanding of the “separation clause” of the United br> States Constitution. It appears that all three need remedial indoctrination in the fundamentals of the American legal system. They certainly are not behaving like scholars. br> — E Joseph West, CFA br> Falls Church, Virginia
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
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?
