Where is Joplin, Mississippi (MS)?
It’s Missouri, not Mississippi

(Aspire to inspire before you expire)
Goshen College (it is not “Goshen University”) is not a liberal school. It is a lovely little Mennonite college in Goshen, Indiana, county seat of Elkhart County, which historically has been a bastion of conservatism.
I suppose you can call Mennonites “liberal” when you compare them to the Amish, from whom they broke off a few centuries ago. I wouldn’t confuse “non-violence” with liberalism, as both the Amish and the Mennonites have tried to avoid war for as long as they have existed (they started out in the 16th century as “Anabaptists”). The Mennonites and Amish believe in self-reliance, hard work, personal responsibility and self-restraint, and actually live in fear of the government. I’ve observed these people up close for years (my wife’s family lives in Elkhart County); I don’t hold any brief for their theology, but if people in this country started living according to their moral principles, the country would be vastly improved overnight.

When I listen to Professor Blosser speaking, I am hearing the words of the modern day liberal. Remember, we are talking about America's National Anthem. It is the modern day liberal who has issues with this country. The college (university is you wish) may be fine and I have no issue with the Mennonites unless they hate America. If they do, then again, they are acting like modern day liberals. The community around the university were as mad as I was about the issue. I have no problem holding to moral principles, but when a school's principles mean banning school prayer, the pledge of alligiance and in this case, the National Anthem, I smell the modern day liberal and I will oppose it.
