And Another One Bites the Dust, But Hopefully for Only a Year

Well, Goshen College did it: a confessionally mennonite school is playing the national anthem. As an experiment now, of course. Nice to know they’re changing their rhetoric.

And it was abysmally covered by USA Today. I continue to become more and more disillusioned with the idea of journalism as a discipline.

If you want more about the situation with Goshen, see Andy’s response at Jesus Radicals: “The fact that Goshen College had to qualify the playing of the anthem to make sure that people understood the college’s peace position indicates that they are aware that the anthem communicates something other than what they support.”
