Oh how lovely

Quote

Amid a backdrop of athletes across the country taking a knee during the national anthem, a Missouri college has unveiled a new, mandatory class that aims to stoke students’ “patriotic yearnings.”

The College of the Ozarks in Point Lookout, Mo., is now requiring all freshmen to enroll in its “Patriotic Education and Fitness” program, which aims to educate students on modern military customs, American politics, and flag protocol and procedures.

It's like "Don't infringe on my rights! I want to do what I want to do cause first amendment"

and then it's also like:

"We will MAKE you take classes/only teach you how to honor the flag you horrible non-American!"

Like you can't win. And the argument is just so hypocritical.

It just seems weird to force people to do take classes irrelevant to their major TBH, I think this about a lot of requirements that fall under gen ed portions of undergrad. Forcing people to do things they may not choose or want to do if they were required to do seems wrong to me. I can't think of a logical reason for this and that includes "freedom" as an excuse because you don't have freedom if you are forced.

No surprise here (quote from the very end of that article): "The College of the Ozarks was named the most unfriendly school for LGBT students in a Princeton Review survey released in August."

Their website makes it sound almost like a college for "troubled" kids. Just reading their mission and the rest of the description made me feel anxious. I've been to a college like that. NO!

I believe this is the school that the NAIA said now cannot host NAIA basketball games.  (could be wrong on that)

Sounds like it was a mutual decision on the part of the school and NAIA not to have the tournament.  Good.  If the college wants to be so pure and right and holy they and the community they live in can do it without the tournament $$$.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
