The more I learn about what happened at Baylor this week, the more disgusted and embarassed I am. You can watch some of Baylor's finest explain exactly what happened, and you can see the bonfire of Obama paraphernalia here.
Press releases and a voluntary, one-hour coffee are not enough to address this incident. If you are a fellow Baylor alum or a Texas Baptist, I hope you'll joining me in writing to Baylor Interim President David Garland to express your hope that the administrative will take stronger action to ensure that it is clear to every Baylor student that this kind of behavior is not acceptable. I know that Dr. Garland will do the right thing; I also know that it never hurts for alumni to ask for proactive steps to be taken.
You can email President Garland at david_garland[AT]baylor[DOT]edu, or mail a letter to:
