    that you cant say their stance is stupid. heck, i coudlnt disagree with the stance of the university any more vehemently. what i am saying, however, is that you cant really, legitimately go to a conservative catholic school and then be shocked when you realize . . . youre a student at a conservative catholic school.

      is that it's NOT such a conservative Catholic school. My cousin, who's a freshman at another school, spends about half his nights in his girlfriend's bed in her BC dorm. Nobody blinks. It's a beer-lover's party school. People at BC have been having sex, using condoms, hooking up, etc. for decades. The administration has for decades looked the other way.

      I think most people who grew up Catholic in this area are all more likely to think this is ridiculous. You might think Catholic = sexually conservative, well duh. I, from the inside, think of the complete lack of overlap between the hierarchy's positions and the positions -- and actions -- of Catholic college students, and the BC I've always known had some awareness of that and tread cautiously.

      Sure, if they keep pushing things this way, people will begin to vote with their feet. But I still think it's stupid in the here and now.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman
