Update on Iowa Wiccan Altar Squabble

A student at Drake University wrote an excellent guest editorial on the situation in Guthrie Center, Iowa that I mentioned in the previous post.

An excerpt from the article:

"If Halferty thinks that learning about any valid religion is "terrible," he is thus prohibiting entire fields of knowledge from being accessed. If one reflects on reasons why anything should not be talked about in school, the only reason Halferty has is fear - and nothing is more degrading to knowledge than fear of it."

Hear hear! Sanity and fair-mindedness, and expressed well. Kat Fatland's parents and professors better be damn proud of her.
