BC Students Outraged Over School President’s Lack of Outrage Over Anti-Gay Graffiti
Someone at Boston College created a piece of anti-gay graffiti and the administration denounced it in a letter. However, the school president didn’t sign the letter. Let’s march!

BC students worry their president doesn’t care enough
Several hundred Boston College students marched against homophobia recently, though many were preoccupied by their frustration over the lack of soothing words from their president.
A little more than two weeks ago, someone rearranged letters in a parking sign to spell out “no fags,” and while the administration did issue a prompt statement in response, the students were apparently miffed that it did not bear the president’s signature.
The university’s associate vice president, Tom Morgan, said in an open letter to students that he takes this vandalism very seriously and that the university will not tolerate it, adding that the school is investigating the situation and will punish the perpetrator under the student code of conduct, if found.
Many students at the Jesuit Catholic university found that response insufficient, however. So, they protested.
Many students specifically complained that Fr. William Leahy, SJ, the president of Boston College, did not address the issue himself. The Graduate Pride Alliance even called him out on his “privilege.”

Saying ‘no’ to a black is racism;
Saying ‘no’ to a woman is sexism;
Saying ‘no’ to a progressive is to be a hillbilly;
Saying ‘no’ to a Muslim is hate speech;
Saying ‘no’ to a gun grabber is to encourage murder.
These are all supposedly majority opinions; yet saying ‘no’ to white, male, conservative, Christian, gun owner is “speaking truth to power.” Why does anyone even listen to these people?
