    I know our liberal colleagues will leap at the opportunity to stand up for voters whose wishes were ignored...

    The nurses graduating from West Virginia University at Parkersburg were offered the opportunity to vote on whether or not an invocation and benediction would be offered, as was traditional at the ceremony.

    "Students voted after being told that the majority would decide the issue,..."

    "When WVU-Parkersburg nursing students voted 40 to 4 to include prayer in Thursday's pinning ceremony, university officials responded by banning prayer completely because the vote was not unanimous," the alliance said.

    The Alliance Defense Fund contends no laws exist preventing the college from having the prayers as part of its ceremony.

    Groups protest lack of prayer in ceremony - NewsandSentinel.com | News, Sports, Jobs, Community Information - Parkersburg News and Sentinel

    Does this situation fit your idea of fair play?

    Do we not see this as a regular occurrence in America today?

    They will be given a time of slience to pray their own prayers.

    It includes everyone so no one is being denied the right to pray that day.

    But that isn't what 90% voted in favor of...nor what they were promised.


    You aren't endorsing treating voting adults as children, are you?

    I am literally standing up as I type this...standing up for 10/11ths of the WVU-Parkersburg nursing student.

    Go WVU-Parkersburg nursing students who want a prayer!!!

    It's yet another example of ignoring the Will of the People. When this fits with the agenda of the left, they'll support the Will of the People. When it does not, they'll justify why they ignore it. I despise political correctness. I believe it stifles freedom.

    The University is not bound by the same laws as our elections

    Schools, like companies get to make and enforce their own rules.....regardless of how stoopid they might be. If they say it has to be unanimous rather than simple majority, that is their choice. It's chicken shit, but their choice.

    Your disingenuous attitude is not surprising. What about the ethics of it? Or do ethics not matter?

    But, when they held the vote, they said 'majority'. When the vote didn't go their way, they changed it. Legal, yea. Ethical? No. Do ethics no longer matter?

    This is not an election of our democracy.

    This is basically a poll done by the university.

    They have all legal rights to decide it as they please.

    Where is your concern for the real elections in which the right has worked for decades to disenfranchise legal American voters?
