Student praises article tackling tough subject


Dear Collegian,

Thank you for publishing the essay “Christian Ideals Can Contribute to Acceptance of Domestic Violence” by Charlotte Graham and the accompanying illustration by Parker Wilhelm. I don’t think the verb “force” in the sentence “These basic beliefs force a practicing Christian to make excuses for their abusers,” is accurate, but other than that, I thought it was a very brave and thoughtful essay. I am very proud of the Collegian for its willingness to publish a wide range of sincere commentary, even if that commentary may be challenging or unwelcome to some members of the University community.
