A letter from a reader about Addressing a religious and moral gulf

March 23 , 2007

In the Jan. 24 issue you printed the excellent letter from Isaiah Cox criticizing the appointment of a Muslim chaplain, and the chaplain’s response.

You owe it to all of us alumni to print a comment from the trustees, who hopefully will reconsider the appointment. Mr. Latif’s response was so inane, I doubt he has any concept of the huge religious and moral gulf he must deal with.

There must be something good about modern-day Muslims, but we (and the students) don’t need a timid Muslim chaplain to throw light on the problem. We need our top professors giving all their teaching powers to educate the students, the alumni, the U.S. citizens, and Mr. Bush!
