Letter to the Editor: Students need to raise their own voices to combat zealots


Dear Editor,
UNF students who are concerned with the religiosity propagated on the Green should exercise their freedom of speech to combat those ideas with opposing viewpoints rather than calling for administration to quell free expression.

It is shameful that the most vocal 21st century UNF students have thus far expressed themselves by saying, in essence, “Someone should shut Reverend Whoever up so I can lie in the sun.”

What a lazy life they must lead. Instead of using their own intellectual abilities to combat the ideas they oppose, they want university officials to make their life more peaceful.

This is a university, not a country club where you can expect to be catered to.
