Lariat Letter: Baylor Missions provides chances to transform

Thanks so much to the Baylor Lariat editorial board for introducing the topic of service. I have the privilege of being the director of Baylor Missions, and it was good to see our program get a “shout out.”

Lariat Letter” I’m black, and my actions don’t define my race

Monday night, Baylor screened the documentary “I’m not a Racist…am I?” There was a considerable student turnout. The documentary was insightful and relatable for a large portion of the audience. However, the conversation afterward disappointed me, probably because I’m not a part of the audience who could relate.

Lariat Letter: For once, think of the children (and mothers, too)

In an Oct. 15 article titled “Children Are People Too,” Vanessa Rasanen of The Federalist writes, “Society has stripped our children of their natural worth, instead morphing them into commodities to be weighed, planned, and shaped to conform with what we think is most convenient for us and our timelines.” The author was speaking about abortion, but her point carries over into the discussion over whether Apple and Facebook (and other companies like them) should pay for their female workers to freeze their eggs.

Lariat Letter: Take time to sit down with people, see beyond stereotypes

“Indeed, God will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” I (choose to) believe we could all agree that in an ideal world, there would be no war in the Middle East. In the prayers of those close to me, peace is a common topic. But these prayers, from many in the United States, focus on the people whom we know; namely, Israel. As a Jew, I love the Jewish people and wish for peace in that nation. As a Christian, I realize I have a larger responsibility.

Lariat Letter: Be safe; wear a helmet when riding motorcycles, mopeds, bikes

I’m not surprised the Lariat’s coverage of Monday’s moped/car accident made no mention of helmets, considering that Texans don’t appreciate being told what to do, even if it’s good for them.

Like Roger Williams, I’m a heretic. Of course, you could be, too.

I’d like to thank all of you who have expressed your support over the last week as I attempt to articulate my thoughts on the relationship between Christianity and Islam. There have been those who have applauded my efforts and have encouraged me to keep going. But the one person I would like to thank most is the anonymous email sent to me calling me a heretic.

Lariat Letters: Opposing responses to “Politically correct isn’t always right” column

To whom it may concern, I’m writing in regards to the editorial piece “Viewpoint: Politically correct isn’t always right” that was published on Oct.13. Myself, and I know many of the other students here at Baylor, feel that this piece is extremely bigoted and prejudiced against the Islamic faith. Never

Lariat Letters: Christians take their texts seriously, too

In the Oct. 14 column “Politically correct isn’t always right,” Jeffrey Swindoll argues that the “politically correct narrative” of Islam as a peaceful religion promoted by our “incompetent … public figures” is in fact wrong, that in reality the vast majority of Muslims approve of violence because they take the Quran literally.
