Towson students should be more respectful
While walking across campus with a friend, we came across two Towson police officers and a maintenance worker at Freedom Square looking at something.
At first, I thought they were just talking, but then I looked on the ground and saw something that made my blood boil. Some Towson students thought it was appropriate to attack the religion of Islam by chalking such epithets as “Down with Islam” and “Stop the Islamization of America.” I am not going to name names, but anyone who is a frequent reader of The Towerlight must surely know who did this.
To the students who did this, I have only one thing to say: You are cowards, using your anonymity as protection while disparaging a sizable number of our student population. If you were brave, you would be standing out with signs expressing your views. But we know you won’t, because you know you are in the minority. You claim that you are against a religion that has caused much blood to be shed. But if you really wanted to attack a religion that preaches violence and hate, you need only look in a mirror.
Christianity has caused as much bloodshed and wars as Islam has, if not more. Luckily, the Towson police officers were quick to get a clean-up crew to the scene and wash away the chalk. Towson, we are better than this. This culture of fear and intolerance must be wiped out before these students cross a line that cannot be undone.
