Entry: Scala Update Wednesday, July 27, 2005

I just sent off this email to Arlene Scala of WPU (see post below):

Ms. Scala:

As a young, independent, and assertive college woman,
I highly respect and admire your accomplished position
as Chair of Women's Studies at WPU. However, I am
writing to you to express my disappointment with the
recent controversy over Mr. Jihad Daniels' comments
about religion, university classes, and homosexuality.
Personally, I feel Mr. Daniels is being unfairly
targeted for simply expressing his views in response
to your invitation to view the film "Ruth and Connie."
Mr. Daniels has his right to express his
non-threatening views about homosexuality in the work
place. After all, isn't that what we American women
are about: equality and fairness?

Although you may disagree with Mr. Daniels'
perspective, I feel that it was inappropriate of you
to file a complaint with the university--a complaint
that permanently scars the record of Mr. Daniels. The
very ideal of "freedom" and "equality" that your job
requires you to exemplify is being trodden underfoot
by your actions.

Again, I am simply writing to express my view on your
actions. Thank you for taking the time to read my

We'll see what response we get, if any.
