Morality Week - YAY!

Sometimes I'm really glad I no longer live in the South. With such great events like UNC-Greensboro's Morality Week, put on by the UNCG College Republicans, why would you want to escape such radical conservatism? I mean, why not step on everyone's toes at once? With my conservative Christian upbringings, I still have some rather strong opinions regarding morality, but these seem to be a little extreme on the "stereotypical archetypes" end of the spectrum. The angry Christian persona further perpetuated by such movies as Jesus Camp [mass-media] and the personal vindications of such people seem to be bringing our country down the path to a Religious Monarchy... One of the very things our "founding fathers [in redneck accent]" were escaping in the first place... Read the quoted schedule of events:
  • Monday, March 26th: "Pro-Life Day" - An outdoor display in front of Jackson Library from 10:00am - 4:00pm will show similarities between abortion and cases of genocide throughout history. At 7:00pm in the New Science Building auditorium, former United States Treasurer and pro-life activist Angela 'Bay' Buchanan will speak on abortion and the failures of feminism.
  • Tuesday, March 27th: "Terrorism Awareness Day" - The College Republicans will distribute literature in front of Jackson Library from 10:00am - 4:00pm which discusses the roots of modern radical Islamic terrorism in previous extremist movements, including Nazi Germany. The film Obsession on the same subject will be presented at 7:00pm in the Elliot University Center auditorium.
  • Wednesday, March 28th: "Straight Pride Day" - The College Republicans will distribute literature on traditional family values in front of Jackson Library from 10:00am - 4:00pm.
  • Thursday, March 29th: "Support Our Troops Day" - Military recruiters will be in front of Jackson Library between 11:00am and 2:00pm distributing literature, and Iraqi War veteran Lt. Col. Scott Rutter will speak on the importance of supporting our military at 7:00pm in the Weatherspoon Art Museum auditorium.
  • Friday, March 30th: "PETA Barbeque" - The College Republicans will wrap-up the week with their annual PETA (People for the Eating of Tasty Animals) Barbeque in front of Jackson Library from 11:00am - 2:00pm.
This year, by partnering with the North Carolina Federation of College Republicans, Morals Week events will take place on 10 college campuses across the state. The UNCG College Republicans have received national media attention for the controversy surrounding their conservative events on the extremely liberal UNCG campus. Previous functions have included an "affirmative-action bake sale" in 2004, the display of a one-ton Ten Commandments monument in 2005, and a Fall 2006 lecture by Iraqi General Georges Sada, one of the General's first university speaking engagements in the United States. It's all a method of "flailing your arms before you drown..."
