In reference to an article Sunday about Gustavus Adolphus College student Garrett Rorem being yelled at by the college instructor: You are experiencing now what will become tenfold after college.

Conservative views will meet with much intolerance, the adjective the liberals seem to want to hang on us.

When standing for “one man one woman equals marriage” you’ll be called a religious fanatic. When standing for the right to carry a handgun or the “castle doctrine” and defending your home, you’ll be called an NRA gun nut. When standing against “in-state tuition for illegal immigrants” you’ll be called “anti-immigrant.” Religions that practice the killing of innocent women and children by suicide bombers, in the name of war, will be defended. Christian beliefs will be called narrow minded and non inclusive. The thought of “intelligent design” or “creationism” will bring laughter in many college classrooms.

Stand on your soapbox at every opportunity and express your beliefs. Your battle has just begun in college, but fight the good fight. It’s worth it.
