War on Us

In case you've been wondering, this is what the War on Christmas does the other 10 months of the year: Somewhere, somehow, from some unexpected angle, they are coming to take away everything we hold dear. In this case, it's a decision by a small Baptist college in Wisconsin to stop calling its sportsball teams the Crusaders. At Planet Fox, that's pretty serious -- worth not just the No. 3 spot Sunday (top) but the No. 4 spot on Friday* (below). Shall we see why?

A Christian college in Wisconsin is dropping its “Crusaders” nickname after nearly 50 years, claiming the moniker has become outdated in a “more global society,” university officials told

Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown and its Division III athletic teams have used the name since its founding in 1968. Matt Davis, the university’s executive vice president, said no complaints have been received by the school and stressed that it coincides with its name change from Maranatha Baptist College in December.

What's the craven Marxist dhimmi trying to hide, Fair 'n' Balanced Network?

... He does not expect the university’s decision to prompt other colleges to consider replacing the nickname elsewhere.

“Every school is different and every context is different, and I respect the leaders of those institutions,” Davis said. “We’re in no position to give input to or to instruct anyone else.”

... Meanwhile, an effort to move away from using “Crusaders” as a team name or as a mascot is not underway at several other colleges and universities contacted by At least eight other schools use the moniker, including the College of Holy Cross in Massachusetts and Capital University in Ohio. In all, representatives from four colleges told that the name is not an issue on their campuses.

So the camel's nose isn't under the beer tent yet, but ... anyway, if you're wondering why the story was worth bringing back two days after it first shocked the world, enjoy a few reader comments:

The  Team's   new  name  is  the  :  JIHADI.........

How 'bout the 'Maranatha Chickens'?

The World laughs at P C America.

"The Allahu Akbars".  There now we've appeased the muslims.

..."Christian college drops 'Crusaders' nickname..."!!!  Welcome to oBama's America!!!   Or, is it: Welcome to the death of America!?

This is a new form of Bullying from the "global society".

Change their name to the Power Puff Girls, but, then again someone would find that offensive  too.  The PC Police are getting old.

The "Muslims", or better yet the "Porkers".  What a crock, and they want them to stop using "Redskins".  We have become a sick Nation.

only 4 presidents have failed to go to the D-Day Monument that honors the soldiers killed on D-Day. Those 4 Presidents were : 
1. Barack Obama 2010  
2. Barack Obama 2011   
3. Barack Obama 2012
4. Barack Obama 2013

We need a Christian President.....

How about The Wisconsin A-holes

So if a Progressive Loon see his shadow stepping out of his Chevy Volt on Feb 2nd...the North East will see 6 more weeks of Winter?..DAM I HOPE SO!!!

With every passing day the  conspiracy theory doesn't seem so far fetched

Wanna bet this "christian" college figures Scripture is outdated too..

The  NEW  name  will  be  the  "JIHADI",  WILL  THE  CHEER  LEADERS  be  wearing  burkas???

There is No compromise or conformity in a so called global society when you are a Christian! We are Not a global society; we are The United States of America!

How about "fluffy bunnies"? That would offend somebody though...prolly the PETA people

You can bet in the land of sand and oil there are no groups changing names of their organizations to feel good. Good ole baptists. Looks like someone is going to be "left behind"

yep just another church bowing down to the one world colony here we go.don't forget it does say 666 on the wrist and its not just some cute little phone embedded in your arm.

Political Correctness , is destroying this nation . America will be like North Korea , a brainwashed , government propaganda based , controlled nation of obedient servants to the State . Just what Obama wants

You really want to give the Maranatha folks some credit here.** They seem to have handled a call from one of Fox's chief witchsmellers with more courtesy than the situation required*** -- not, say, asking him to call back when he's figured out what "dispensational" means. Or even asking, in an appropriately puzzled tone: Dude, exactly what is your problem?

* Yes, the Sunday story says that it was "published February 02, 2014." You'll notice, though, that the time stamp on the comments Sunday morning jumps from "53 minutes ago" to "18 hours ago."
** It helps that they have a Wayne State escapee teaching Greek. Warrior Pride!
*** About 30% of the student body was homeschooled. You'd think that would entitle the spokesman to deliver a swift kick in the old fusebox to a Fox reporter demanding to know why real Amurrican values were being sold out.
