It's rather unfortunate but the Wheatley Institute at BYU tends to bring only
one kind of speaker into campus -- those heavily involved in warmaking and
secret interventions overseas.It'd be one thing if there were
balance from those who voiced the other side of U.S. choices to make hegemonic
manipulations overseas. And I recognize that certainly an individual
organization on a college campus is entitled to their myopia, biases, and
mistakes.But the perception becomes that BYU -- and unfortunately by
extension -- the LDS Church -- rubber stamps and even approves of the world view
of these speakers. I'm active LDS and a fairly recent BYU grad and *I*
certainly don't approve of the "neo-conservative" agenda that too many
of these speakers seem to share. I think it's a shame.
Maybe this guy could figure out what happened to BYU's Big 12 invite.
