The Corrupting of the American Mind

Michael Barone emails Prof. Reynolds:

Just a random thought on Ahmedinejad speaking at Columbia.

Columbia doesn't host ROTC or (I think) military recruiters on campus, because it would be just too offensive to do so, because the military obeys the law passed by a Democratic Congress and signed by Bill Clinton which bars open homosexuals from serving in the military. OK.

But Columbia does host Ahmedinejad who heads a government which executes homosexuals for the crime of being homosexuals.

So it's obnoxious beyond belief to exclude homosexuals from military service, but it's not obnoxious beyond belief to hang them from the neck until dead.

I'm inclined to think that Congress and the military should rethink their policy of barring homosexuals from military service. It's a long argument, which I'll omit from this post. But I don't have any trouble joining the 99.99% of Americans who oppose execution of homosexuals for homosexual acts. And who think it's a barbaric act, incapable of being supported by any decent argument.

Why does Lee Bollinger think a man who heads a regime that executes homosexuals--not just excludes them from military service, but hangs them by the neck until dead, in public ceremony--should be honored with an invitation to speak at Columbia?

Columbia has no morals, being anti-Bush is all that matters. Can you imagine an American university inviting Mussolini in the late 1930s or early 40s?

Note that on July 19, 2005, the Iranian regime executed two teenagers for the mentioned "crime".



So they want homosexuals to serve in the army, where they can get killed, and they welcome the head of a nation which executes homosexuals?

Seems to me that Columbia just want gay people to die!
