So its been announced today that Tech is looking into building an all faiths chapel on the campus. It looks like it will all be financed privately. How do y'all feel abou this?

as long as there are no requirements placed on students, i don't have an issue with it.

the second that this church starts trying to cram it's self down students throats though, it should get cut.

That's dumb. Put a cross in it, imo. Stained glass windows with saints and other events, too.

This

and the whole "open to all faiths" thing, no singling out to endorse one over the other.

I get the feeling that it will end up being used most by faiths that are a minority here. Look at how many churches there are just down Broadway (First Christian, 1st Baptist, St. Elizabeth's, First United Methodist, Church of Christ all there in the same area)...then try and find a mosque or a synagogue. I think it could be great for those students who don't have a definite place in this town to worship they way they feel they need to.

believe it or not, this will prolly be just the loophole some of my clients need to avoid being arrested.... i've gotten several people who've been arrested "loitering" on texas tech property, trying to pick up college chicks.

with an "all inclusive" church with more open hours, they really can't be kicked as easily


doesn't have too much to do with the nature of this thread, but is interesting how such things are always capable of being abused

Sounds to me just like a moneymaker for whoever is building it. For weddings and such. Doesn't sound like some kinda place where people will be worshipping all the time.

Well, as long as they don't allow those whacko extremist faiths, like the Muslims, the Hindus, the Bhuddists ... you know, all those weirdos .... then that's just fine. You can't have any of that weird shit going on in the heartland of all places ya know, you gotta just get on down there and worship GOD. And not any of those other pinko communist gods, the REAL god! The one in the CHRISTIAN BIBLE!

There was no ePersona here. Were there such words as "Sextits", "Masturbatory Femi-Instincts", "Cuddle", or "girl-feelings" ...?

Well, either it was the e-persona or you're unAmerican.



(I'm kind of against any sort of chapel on a public university to begin with, given the whole no church/state mixture thing...I mean, I can see pluses and minuses to the whole thing, but it makes me a bit uneasy... )


But hey, whatever.
