Conservatives "out" SpongeBob

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? The oddest, perhaps we should say the queerest face in animation, SpongeBob SquarePants, of course. At least this according to the American Family Association (AFA), a Christian conservative group. They and other conservatives are angry over a new music video entitled “We are family” and produced by the We Are Family Foundation (WAFF) that features the frilly sea sponge, among other children’s characters. AFA claims that the video promotes homosexuality.


The politics of Christianity

To call yourself a Christian it is necessary to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This is the litmus test for Christians and to deny the divinity of Christ is to deny Christianity. Beyond this, being a Christian means that you mirror God in your thoughts, actions, and daily life. God, above all things is Truth. There is nothing false or hidden about God. God also embodies three spirits which we call The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost. Mirroring this trinity are the three fundamental aspects of God’s truth; love, tolerance, and forgiveness.



Sexual harrassment declining, but still pervasive

When people think of sexual harassment, they typically picture an office setting where the boss is sitting on the edge of his female employee’s desk, like a vampire ready to sink his teeth into her neck, while she tries to ignore his staring at her breasts and instead imagines the day she will confront him and probably lose her job.


Social Security: What to expect?

Most students here at HPU are just beginning to enter the workforce. We are not thinking of retirement, or the benefits that come with it. However, a lot of people are taking a close look at Social Security and where it is headed. It was an issue in the recent presidential election. And it is an issue of direct importance to us because whatever Bush does- even if nothing- will affect our future and how we prepare for it.
