Re: Operation: BATTLEFIELD : Concordia ( Moved from public to private )

Post by SomeRandGuy on Thu Apr 16, 2009 12:23 am

Someone I know at Concordia got an interesting response:


Hello, this is [John Doe] (1234567) taking English at Concordia.

It has come to my attention that the display set up in the Concordia library building is actually a Scientology display, operating under a pseudonym.

I want just one question answered. This is not a rhetorical question: Would Concordia allow "Westboro Baptist Church against Gays" to set up a presentation in our library building if they paid enough money?

At the very least, I want the display to be officially presented as a "Scientology" display, so that any students who might be interested in it will not be intentionally misled by this organization. There is no harm in this kind of clarity.

Thank you for your time.

Response:

Good evening Mr. [Doe],

Thank you for your email and for sharing with me your concerns about the current exhibit sponsored by the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR).

First, I can assure you that material at the exhibit, which I have seen personally indicates that the CCHR is affiliated with the Church of Scientology. As well, any Google search of CCHR will also reveal this affiliation.

Second, and with respect, this is not an issue about money. The space was booked by the organizers of the event in accordance with our policies and procedures.

Third, the Church of Scientology is a recognized religious and charitable organization in Canada.

Fourth, and most importantly, we are motivated by our commitment to ensuring the university is a place where individuals and groups have the freedom to present their ideas and perspectives, whether we agree with them or not, in a civil and respectful manner. We also expect that the laws of the land will be respected including prohibitions against hate speech, incitement to violence etc. (**THIS IS NEW***)

You should know that, as always in such cases, Concordia University takes no position with respect to the content of the exhibit or any of the positions the CCHR espouses.

Finally, there is an expectation that the exhibit will respect the spirit of our commitment to academic freedom. It is a precondition of any event on our campus that the emphasis will be and at all times will remain on the respectful discussion and debate of possibly opposing positions in a secure, collegial environment.

Thank you once again for writing to express your concerns.

Sincerely,

Michael Di Grappa
Vice-President, Services

I have to wonder what they mean by that exactly. Is this a preemptive strike to justify them kicking us out? It could just be the guy's answer to question Westboro. Still very interesting. This means they're giving personalized responses to Concordia students.

At this point, but that just means that haven't gotten too many responses yet.

It's odd that they didn't comment on whether they would or wouldn't let Westboro have an exhibit. Surely this is just an indication of a school being used for advertisement, given that Concordia University has no offical stance on the matter.

It might be useful to contact the Link and the Concordian (the university's two newspapers) and see if they can run something on them. The 5 W's (Who, What, When, Where, Why) might help if they're not already informed. Lots of people read these newspapers.

I'll be there around 11h30-11h45. We're leaving at NOON.

So who's in?

PS: Is Mike do have access to the forum? Because I PM'd him, and he didn't seem to be aware.... oh, and he showed up at March protest, hence he should have access to the forum.

Due to lack of bucket and having to pass through Concordia when going to and coming from work every other day, I'll be going shirt ninja and then putting my mask over it; just in case we get kicked out, I don't want Concordia security swarming me when leaving the metro.

CCDH is returning to Concordia in October, unless we can stop it.

a post linking to this article

http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents/cchr-hu-lie-200610.html

we need to show Concordia it'S not about free speech, but academic standards
1) the Howard university kicked them out after they caught them lying (saying the university co-hosted the exibit rather than renting space, and maybe more, we'd need to have inside info from howard, this was in 2006)
2) the graph on their photo'S have NO scale
3) holocaust revisionism
4) get their brochures, fact-check their claim, or see if they have sources indicated, if they don't we can get them on that too.
