Discrimination U (of the Cumberlands) can kiss Pharmacy School goodbye
Ky. Supreme Court rules against Baptist university
By ROGER ALFORD - Associated Press Writer FRANKFORT, Ky. -- The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a Baptist university can't keep $11 million awarded by state lawmakers some four years ago to open a pharmacy school.

The case, which involves the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, had been closely watched by advocates for other church-affiliated schools that have largely been excluded in the past from state funding for construction projects.

I am so grateful for this ruling, I couldn't believe even Kentucky Republicans had the audacity to try to fund a private religious school through tax payer dollars. This is the school that just humiliated then expelled a gay student in 2006. One thing that has never been brought up is what kind of(non)education pharmacy students attending an extremist religious institution would receive. I imagine they would have produced students who would have actively sought ways of preventing women from obtaining legal, medically prescribed health care for one thing, though that was never mentioned. American Christianity is becoming so anti-contraception as the right goes extremist. We are all so fortunate this was stopped by the Supreme Court of the state.

3. Well the prick was smart enough to get us to pay for his office upgrade
I have known this asshole since 1969 and he is still a prick. I'm sure he needs his 60" plasma TV for state business. If I have offended any pigs, my apologies.
