Geologists love rocks. They collect rocks, study rocks, and buy hats that say “I Love Rocks.” So if you want to start a quarrel with a geologist, you take away his rocks.
I don’t know if it’s true that we learn everything we need to know in kindergarten. But with regard to religious freedom, we certainly have learned a great deal from a preschool playground.
A loss could mean not only that Phillips would be forced to close the doors of his family business, but also that we risk closing the doors on what it means to be a truly free society.
Championing the freedoms of expression and conscience for those who share your views, while demanding that others violate their convictions, is not tolerant, and it is not principled. It is hypocrisy.
It seems that the land of Louie the Lumberjack — NAU’s beloved mascot — is becoming increasingly hostile to conservatives, Christians, and common sense on campus
