“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be out to death; blood shall be upon them.” This is the common passage thrown about by some within the Christian community to justify their stance against homosexuality and gay marriage in America.
At some point or another, most of us have longed for circumstances other than our own. Whether we admire someone’s wealth, status, education or relationship, the feeling of desire is the same.
We can now see capitalism’s last crash, and indications are that it will be a spectacular disaster.
Mayor Paul Schreiber of Ypsilanti has said the city needs to make the transition from a locale that relied on manufacturers to a college town. Many times over I have raised the question of whether or not the city has the money to make the transition. The debt from a real estate purchase that went badly has left the city unable to pay for capital improvements and public services like parks and recreation have been cut. But another important question is what it means to be a college town.
My column is simply an effort to improve three things in this world; truth, justice and equality. If a police officer can openly lie to a citizen, that is not truth. If a police officer has special protections that are unavailable to a civilian, that is not equality. If a police officer can fire 16 rounds into an unarmed man without consequence, that is not justice.
Dear Eastern Echo, I am extremely upset and offended by the article titled, “Students for Life Informs about Planned Parenthood,” as the title in and of itself seems contradictory.
People looking for information on Eastern Michigan University turn to one thing first: www.emich.edu, the university website. And boy, do they get an eyeful of the some of the worst EMU has to offer.
When I came across the announcement in Eastern Michigan University’s web portal of the upcoming Genocide Awareness Project, I was expecting to read about an event that would draw our attention to acts of violence against groups based on religion, race and ethnicity. Instead, I was shocked to find the student organization behind the exhibit was comparing genocide to abortion.
Dear Editor, There are a few basic needs that humans have: food, shelter, water and a place to relieve themselves safely. For many people on Eastern Michigan University’s campus, finding such a place to use the restroom is not only difficult, but also impossible in many instances. For people with disabilities, parents with children, those with religious restrictions and some lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students and faculty, using the restroom on our campus can be much more challenging than it should be. These members of our community are important and deserve our consideration.
By EMU alumnus Michael Marotta I finished a Bachelor of Science at Eastern Michigan University in 2008 and a Master of Arts in 2010. According to EMU IT policy, my student email account should have been disabled six months later, but I was lucky enough to keep it until January 21 of this year. Why not longer?
Wow, Eastern. Personally, I normally applaud the Echo ...
