CAMPUS PREACHERS

 

 Quiet the crazies on campus
“It happens every semester: an outrageously-dressed person shows up in front of the University Center and begins spouting preachings that are almost always debatable. Some students gather around him (I have never once seen a female speaker) to listen and argue the validity of what the speaker has to say, and things get dangerously close to getting out of hand……”

Passers-by hear visitors preach
Watch out, partiers, sex freaks and feminists -- judgment is coming. At least that's what group of preachers gathered outside the HUB said Wednesday, holding an impromptu rally to spread their religious and moral beliefs to the campus community.

Speaking Up About Speaking Out
“…….Last week our campus was visited by what some might call a hellfire and brimstone street preacher. He showed up belching hatred and garnered the anger, mockery or disdain of nearly everyone he encountered. I saw many of our students not just challenging his ideas, as he was just as vocally challenging theirs, but also complaining about his right to be in our little microcosm of the universe spreading his message in the manner he chose to deliver it……”

Bornstein: Weapon of choice against God-fearing preachers:
“Let’s make a list of everyone God hates, shall we? God hates: Fags, Jews, Greeks, Feminists, Jayhawks, Liberals, Conservatives, America, you, me and everyone we know. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but you get my gist. God hates everyone, or so people such as Brother Jed preach……”

Hatred Unacceptable on Campus:
“…….Above all, I implore our administration to screen more carefully the message of those they allow to speak on our campus. Religious preachers are not necessarily bad to have on campus. But those who spread hatred, religious or not, need to be looked out for and kept off our campus. Hatred is not conducive to a educational atmosphere and it certainly isn't conducive for outstanding students.”

Preacher Rains Hellfire on Shawnee State Campus:
“……..While students strongly disagreed with what Mays was saying there was never a shortage of people surrounding the man. With such shocking responses and statements, Mays was able to provoke emotions and create dialogue among students; he was able to achieve exactly what he wanted--to be heard…..”

Formerly banned street preacher starts semester as a student:
“……On Aug. 24, Faulkner, also known as "Brother Larry," spent the day registering for classes and going through freshman orientation as he prepared to start his college career as a communication major with an emphasis on public relations……”

Pirates hold non-theist demonstration:
“……McCreight said students should speak up when they do not agree with what some on-campus preachers say. "Our main goal is to let people know that it's okay to criticize religion especially if it's saying things that you think are hateful or ridiculous. You don't have to be quiet just because it's a religious topic," said McCreight……” 

UW-Platteville’s campus preachers are crossing the line:                                                                    “If you’ve been going to UW-Platteville for a couple years, you have probably seen the familiar sight of a man standing outside the Pioneer Student Center preaching to anyone who walks by him between classes. Over the years the message preached has kept the same main philosophy; college students are going to Hell if we do not repent now…..”
