Marcavage, again

Agape Press, the American Family Association's answer to Pravda is reporting that Michael Marcavage, leader of Repent America is suing Temple University for trying to have him committed to a psych ward after a demonstration in 1999:
"The AFA Law Center spokesman feels the university must be held accountable for the actions it took against its student for simply speaking out against a school-sponsored theatrical production. The legal expert points out that, in some sense, Marcavage thought the incident marked something of a turning point.

'And obviously, we've seen the ratcheting up of hostility against Christians and Christianity,' Crampton notes, 'as most recently seen in the Philadelphia 11 matter, where [the Christian defendants were] charged with hate crimes simply for trying to share the gospel.'

In fact, the AFA attorney adds, 'It is a terrible, oppressive environment out there, and university campuses are among the worst places for Christians.' He says the Law Center intends to seek damages for Marcavage's ordeal."

That's funny. I'm a Christian, and I don't feel oppressed.
