Letter to the Editor: University’s distance from Wright detrimental to discussion...

I am writing this letter in response to the comments the chancellor made about the Rev. Jeremiah Wright that were published in the Dallas Morning News and picked up by other news media.


Specifically, Chancellor Victor Boschini commented that: "Giving an award [to Wright] is another matter, and in this specific case in light of Rev. Wright's recently discovered remarks, TCU would not give such an award." Additionally, recently the Board of Trustees voted to prohibit Brite Divinity's award ceremony honoring Wright from occurring on campus because of safety concerns.
