GAP at Radford University – A note from our host.
I got an e-mail from John Monaghan, the President of College Republicans at Radford University. They hosted our GAP on their campus, which was a great success. Here are a few of the things he told me:
I heard a great deal of positive feedback from both students and professors. A friend of mine informed me that his Philosophy teacher was ecstatic we brought you all to campus and that everyone had a chance to be subject to the issue. I really want to thank your staff and, of course, you for everything you did to make this happen.
It was a good thing most definitely and like I have told so many (who may have or may not have been in favor of the exhibit) that if only one person who saw that exhibit chooses life over abortion after seeing that exhibit and being more educated, then we have done our jobs and saved a one of God’s miracles, a child’s life.
The one thing I was appalled at was how unsupportive my fellow students and Radford professors are of the First Amendment. Freedom of Speech is what makes this country great and many of my peers and professors fail to understand there is always a differing viewpoint. In Academia, sadly, the liberal push and spin is spread daily and students must decipher what is to be believed and what is the liberal spin that most professors add on.
I was able to sign up an additional 38 names during Club Fair last Friday. I think a lot of that was due to the GAP exhibit, so thank you for that. My roommate will also be sending out an e-mail to all of the pro-lifers CBR signed up and either asking them to join College Republicans or asking one of them to step up and create Radford for Pro-Life Group. I think either way, it would be a benefit to this campus.
Once again, thanks so much. Please tell your staff it was wonderful meeting them all. If you are ever near Radford or Blacksburg, give me a call–I still owe you lunch!
Thanks, John. You may owe me lunch, but we all owe you so much more!
