An Oxymoron Or A Sign Of Our Times?
Texas Christian University--note the middle word in the title--has a group calling itself the Horned Frog Freethinkers that has applied for university recognition as an on-campus organization. They are atheists, who wish to meet and discuss their particular religious views. If recognized, they would join existing recognized groups that include those espousing the Muslim and Jewish faiths.
If my grandmother had seen this news story, she'd have been shocked. In her day (and, frankly, in mine) a private university might have sent non-Christian groups packing if they applied for official recognition. How do you feel about all this? I'm not taking sides--just asking the question. It will be interesting to see how you answer.
