Cross-Killing College Allows Sex Workers, Though

The College of William and Mary, who didn't allow the cross to remain in their church because it might offend people, saw no problem with allowing sex workers to hold an exhibit on campus.
A recent "sex workers" art show at the College of William & Mary is prompting more questions about President Gene R. Nichol's leadership of the 314-year-old public university.
Mr. Nichol allowed the "Sex Workers' Art Show" to stop at William & Mary last week as part of its national tour. The event included male and female strippers, escorts and prostitutes in various states of undress expressing their feelings on subjects ranging from their jobs to global politics.
The criticism against Mr. Nichol began in October when he removed a cross from the school's Wren Chapel to make it more open to people of all faiths.
Mr. Nichol said he removed the cross because potential students and their families viewing the chapel on campus tours immediately departed and because a Jewish student required to participate in a program in the chapel vowed never to return.
I guess naked people don't offend anyone.

Wanna bet that he voted democrat?

A true Jewish person of faith would not take offense at a cross.

Interesting historical fact about the college:
In 1690 the clergy of the Church of England in Virginia adopted at a convention "Several Propositions" for founding a college to consist of three schools: grammar, philosophy and divinity. On July 25, 1690, Lieutenant Governor Francis Nicholson authorized several gentlemen to take subscriptions in Virginia for the proposed college, and on the same day the clergy issued an appeal for financial support to merchants in England who were trading in Virginia.

I didn't know that, dcgirl. I have several friends who attended there, as I lived in VA until I was 17, and my family is originally from there.
