Ok so I go to Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, and lately, there has been a strong presence of religions holding public displays, vying for students attention.
The small church on-campus has people constantly holding signs up saying "Jesus is coming, ready?" and Christian music blaring all day.
Then the Muslims mass gatherings of the "call to prayer" outside the student center with the signing and recital of scripture. They pray 5 times a day so you always see Muslims praying in weird places on campus.
The Jews have their stand and booth and signs but don't seem to demonstrate as much as the Christians.
The "free thinkers" have their table, right next to the church (pretty funny), encouraging people to think outside the box.
Then you got the religion of marijuana followers trying to legalize it (ok, not a real religion).
This is the first year that I've seen this on campus. It feels like it's a recruiting war.
Anyone else see this at their campuses?
This is really an interesting turn of events. I am going to enjoy watching for responses. Was there a new rule at ASU that maybe specifically allows this for the first time?
Aren't you guys inthe running for a nomination as a party school? The Christian kids just want to help you save yourself. Even if you don't believe, isn't it nice to know someone cares?
Sounds like Uni's all over the world Tim.
My son has attended Canterbury University ,New Zealand for the last 3 years and there is a 50/50 ongoing debate and support type groups for Christianity and Non-Believers, both vocal and both passionate....even at the top!
I hope you kids are actually learning other stuff too

There is a lot of wrong things happening in the name of Religion. Recently while talking about the recent blasts in India I was shocked to see one of my friends talking with so much of hatred for Muslims and Pakistanis. He said if he had the power he would put all Muslims in a frying...
