By the way...

In news that's somewhat related to the post below, I haven't had much luck finding ACU alumni who are interested in greeting the Equality Riders once they get to Abilene. The contact for the ride says everything is being taken care of by ACU, and the president of the Big Country chapter of PFLAG says that he's letting the ACU coordinator take the lead.

I hope this doesn't mean that the riders will be restricted to talking to a handful of staff and faculty members, or that obnoxious anti-gay people will be the only ones to show up when the riders arrive.

At least ACU's administration is so far behaving outwardly with the maturity and stated willingness to discuss with the visitor that one would expect out of a place of higher learning. Such is not the case at the riders' first stop, Liberty University. See http://365gay.com/Newscon06/03/030806ride.htm.
