This is a letter to the editor in a local paper. The Marietta Daily Journal has been gunning for Kennesaw State University for quite sometime now, accusing the college of being Marxist. Typical lock step christian fundamentalist tripe stating "It is only when people believe and practice these commands [Christianity] that peoples of all races, languages and nations can live together peacefully and lovingly." In my opinion, this guy (and this paper) desperately need an education.
Please take a moment to read the article, and post your comments.
It's really sad that people don't understand what words mean. The Communist Manifesto WAS a call to conscience. That isn't a statement on whether it is good or bad. It was simply a response to what was happening at the time. It's sad that people are unable to read something without assuming a person is suggesting it be implemented.
As far as Jesus and his Apostles go, the only thing that is preventing this world from being at peace is fundamentalist whack jobs to insist their way is the only way, and that everyone else is going to hell. Christianity is not the first, nor the only religion in this world, and it is high time people down here realize that. Kennesaw State has a wide and diverse student population, and not all of them are christians, nor should they be.
To suggest that Professor Pynn was endorsing Marxism is disingenuous. This piece is a glaring example of the distinct lack of education, and exposure to other cultures and religions, that this state is known for. Congratulations on showing your complete lack of historical reference and knowledge of other cultures.
