(04/02/14 3:58am)

As members of the Union of Teaching Faculty, we want to thank Central Michigan Life for initiating a much-needed discussion about the gender-wage gap at Central Michigan University. We stand in solidarity with all those who are concerned about the lack of women holding full professorships, as well as the disparity of women making top wages on our campus.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: A response to Michigan's appeal of the same-sex marriage ban

(03/26/14 3:58am)

The federal judge who recently ruled that Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional evidently hasn’t learned much from the past. The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans inappropriately valued homosexual relations. Eventually, the people wised up and realized that was a mistake. Homosexual activity was deemed unethical and was basically driven underground. Even Plato condemned homosexual activity. Now – despite the fact that people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral – misguided “progressives” are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive times. It's easy to show that all the arguments homosexuals use to try to rationalize homosexual activity are seriously flawed. It may surprise you that some colleges, like Harvard, now officially recognize student groups devoted to promoting the acceptance of BDSM – or sexually deviant bondage, discipline, sadism, and masochism. That's right – if you are a student who is aroused by smacking people around, some colleges now have groups for you. He who has eyes to see, let them see. The "logic" of heterophobic homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more aberrant, disordered and irrational society. Legal polygamy is coming soon. Maybe down the line we'll see "marriage" between consenting adult incestuous people! Whoopee! Anyone who thinks this is progress is deluding themselves. Rome didn't fall in a day. But it did fall. Let's not join the race to the bottom. Wayne Lela Downers Grove IL 60515 (630-964-4678)

Similarly, there is an enormous population of people who are working against gay and lesbian rights – however, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to take action against the discrimination.
