To the Editor:

As one of the few conservatives on campus, I feel compelled to comment on the evangelist minister who yelled out Bible scripture in front of the Gorham Campus Center.

The Bible says: “Cast not your pearls before swine.” Translation: Don’t go where you’re not wanted. If anything, screeching like an idiot in public will only turn off would-be converts, so the minister is, in reality, doing Satan’s work. Hospital emergency rooms, funeral parlors, prisons and the waiting room at the IRS office is the best hunting ground for lost souls in need of comfort and direction.

People in dire straits are the ones who need help the most – simple as that.
