  1. Butler is an intense religious bigot and shouldn’t have been on this panel.
    Look at her hardcore persecution of apostates from Islam and her support
    for the execution of Bahai and Ahmaddi. She is a hardcore theocrat enable.

  2. Professor Kennedy is on point. He expresses the heart of most of us. We are
    a people of symbols. Our hope is in our symbols. They’re is no decline,
    because as Donald Byrd would say “Trying to Mae it real compared to what”.

  3. what is the name of the professor who did the intro? I think I saw him in a
    huffington post article about meth use

  4. the lady with the ‘fro and glasses -anthea butler– was simply brilliant
    with her commentary on president obama
