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.


Well, that's ok there Zach, I understand! If they were going to allow those communist pinko relegious weirdos into a chapel that was supposed to have GOD worshipped in it, I'd feel uneasy too!

ok but on a serious note...

Why do I have visions of this idea backfiring radically and the place being bombed or something? heh smile.gif

I wouldn't want to get married in Lubbock. But I would have been interested in being able to get married on the campus where my husband and I first met...

Perspective ftw.

And yeah, I think it will be more for performing marriages and holding receptions/events than it will be to impose religion on anyone. It's not like they're bringing in a preacher/minister/priest to run the chapel.

I don't personally agree with it because whether it be one faith or every faith there should still be a separation of church and state. Plus, while the church may be funded with private dollars it will be located on public property. The whole project seems tainted with ulterior motives. I don't really trust Kent Hace...

well this whole freedom of relegion thing has been completley bastardized.

if it was just different denominations of christianity, everything would be ok, as this is what the founding fathers OBVIOUSLY intended, but then you get a bunch of god dammned communist pinkos invading this country trying to destroy it and then you get a bunch of people with ass-backwards relegions that worship everything from goats to false prophets who aren't jesus who seem to think the hard working christian folks of america owe them something, and that's how you get this mess!

I don't like the idea of "privately" funded buildings being built on a public university. "privately funded" just scares me. I'm curious who or what organization donated the money? that is not a common thing is it?

not that i necessarily care if the university chose to have a "chapel" on its campus but also curious what other public-non religion associated universities have such a thing.

ummm a lot of buildings on campus are built through private donations. Take the Business Administration building at Tech for instance. I believe all the funding for that came from one person. UT's business building is the same way.

money donated to the school at large i dont consider "privately funded" per say IMO. i know the meaning of the words its the idea behind them

like a person/org. paid money for the exact purpose of religious intention on a public university is what i have an issue with

I understand what you are saying. I do...

It's just that I don't see too much of a difference. I mean, the guy that donated the money to Tech for their BA building did so with the exact purpose of getting a new BA building built.

Now, a lot of other privately funded buildings are on campus that are for religious purposes. Texas State has a Baptist Student Ministry building. I assume that was privately funded by either a person or organization. I guess my point is, it isn't that rare. Additionally, the fact that this building can be used by any faith (at least in theory) is a plus also. I see it as a good thing. If people are that afraid of religion then they need to hide in a box. It's not illegal to go door to door passing out religious pamphlets (a judgment handed down by the US Supreme Court so it's legally binding in every part of the US). I don't see a problem with having a building where students can go to get away from their studies and the busy life of being a student. Some find solace in their religion.

well with that same kind of thinking whats wrong with all the student ministries on university 100m away from campus?

i mean tech could have used that money for something, imo, more useful and necessary

and we already have a cultural/international center where religious things used to be housed

im not going to protest this or anything but thats my opinion. although i would have a problem if the money came from some fanatical group, like baptists. HOHOHO

cat, it wasn't tech's money to spend. they simply allowed it to be built. like has already been said it's probably just going to be a moneymaker for people having weddings in it.
