Regarding Carnegie Mellon University's fourth annual Anti-Gravity Downhill Derby on April 18, where a student distastefully put herself on display as some sort of papal paradox: This serves as yet another example of liberal hypocrisy. When liberals agree with “the message,” they defend it as “freedom of expression,” but as soon as liberals disagree with “the message,” they dismiss it as “hatemongering.”

Just imagine if a conservative student were to mock gay marriage or Muslims as part of a university-sponsored event.

If there's any doubt as to the legitimacy of my remarks, please refer to the hue and cry over Chick-fil-A President and COO Dan Cathy's response to a reporter regarding his beliefs about gay marriage.

But fear not; I'm sure some liberal-minded person with a far more tolerant mind than my own will artfully explain to me how this young woman's sordid display should not be construed as “bigotry.”
