To say that I am disappointed with the judgment and maturity of theCollege Republicans, however, would be a tremendous understatement.There are many people who can speak to the conservative point ofview with integrity and conviction, but Ms. Coulter is not amongthem. Her rhetoric is often hateful and needlessly provocative-moreheat than light-and her message is aimed squarely at the darkerside of our nature.Got that? The Republicans are immature. Ann Coulter lacks integrity, and is hateful. She is from the dark side (does a Jesuit really want to go there?).
As members of a Jesuit institution, we are called upon to deal withone another with civility and compassion, not to sling mud andimpugn the motives of those with whom we disagree or to engage inracial or social stereotyping.
Not much chance of anyone improving their self-awareness by attending Fordham, we think.
