This is a very open kind of religious school so this isn't shocking to me...I am sorry.
Eric Fromm decided to attend Northwest Christian University almost in spite of its faith-based mission. He liked the school's small class sizes and communications program, but was already struggling with his faith when he enrolled. And though he was well-regarded enough to be elected student body president, confessing his doubts to other students revealed their discomfort, with some even making fun of him. That only steeled his resolve to declare his atheism in the school's on-line newspaper, even as he expected more criticism. But instead there has been an outpouring of support, though he still gets the "Why are you here?" questions. But not from university vice president MIchael Fuller. "I want students like Eric here ... students who are looking to explore their faith and willing to look hard and make their faith their own," he said. [Source]

Sports is beginning to sour me why, the big high expectations we put on every sport from college to pro , lets look at the University Of Oregon and its I'm sure not very popular sport, the once beaten Oregon duck football squad, are you kidding me, we cant watch sport anymore without pen and paper and Quality control the coach, the players , aaww the days when we went to enjoy sports ,no more.
a lot of schools I'm sorry would KILL to have a record of 8-1 not these spoiled brat winning fans....nothing is good enough anymore...
saw a dude I wrote about yesterday acting as though he had lost everything in a fire, why, Oregon lost a college football game/.....Oh be still my heart>..
and here on the yard everyone knows Charles chip Kelly until recently had NO experience in the NFL and some I am sure were very excited a new coach and new system ,but I saw many who remind me of the college spoiled rotten winning fans we want wins and we want them NOW or you will hear the loudest whines you have ever heard!
a new cheer for all cheer leaders
get ready get set Go..... Whine

I am getting rather sick and tired of reading all the crying and why not some congrats to Stanford who beat Oregon ?
huh? HUH cry crys.
could we extend our hand to them....what in the Blank has happened to sportsmanship?
ohh woes is us.....hey its sports cry babies win some lose some....
Yea yesterday watching the all time in my book so downtrodden as if his parents were found dead? yea Richard over a dern football game I almost busted out laughing.....
does this baby ever stop to think did the Oregon players want to lose?
yea So what we lost another spot for the BCS title , didn't we turn the ball over way to much when we played Auburn?
Its a game idiots learn that could you?
November 8, 2013
and Ill ad want names?
In any sport , at any level and give it time...you will lose, like or naught you will lose.
Some ,it takes along time to learn this aspect it did for this blogger, as I just sent a reply to a new blogger on this site, Paul.
In years past last nights loss by Oregon ,I'd thrown stuff cussed like a logger or sounded like a standup comedian we see in comedy clubs but it wouldn't have been to make people laugh, I'd been Pisssed!
I went into a rage when the Portland Trail Blazers got beat as did My younger brother and what did it prove....nothing..... but to make me look like an idiot!
I recall a now 36 year old dude named Richard and yea he's not alone I recall he saying it took two days to get over the college football loss to Stanford last year and I hope he's doing well today after 2,3,Fo a second loss at the hands of the Cardinal last night?
We also forget its a GAME yea a Game..as Pastor Gary said nothing wrong with sports but when it gets to be as I said "want names?" who takes this as Skeeter Davis sings "The End of The World.". and hey some do...I think it so so so sad
Now this dude Richard thought that because ,I don't think the same way he thinks about sports, I am not a fan. .Think again dude...recently I spent and no to some big deal but I paid 26 bucks for the same type of Oregon sports cap seen worn by head coach Mark Helfrich last night???
Aren't people funny as stated by the late Art Linkletter?
I say yea Oregon lost to Stanford last night , but hey when you play a game ,other than sports that end in a tie, you will lose..or did I make that up?
As My Friend Ron, says you think the team wants to lose? if they do they shouldn't be playing!
and take this word business when It comes to sports and slam it ok....sure ok its bizz but in any business don't you have to learn bad days an good days....life isn't a game ....we go to work as does the athletes ....you play the game ,you go home....
when I woke up this morning ....a new day or as in Annie didn't the sun come out "the next day?"
I have blogged this before, I hope and pray one day we can return to enjoying sports and I mean as fans enjoying watching sports without the use of a dirty diaper change AND THAT DIAPER IS ON US???

Yea yesterday had a little conversation with another child aww adult, about this whole BCS elcrapola again, and of course this man is so into it , makes me chuckle , yea the BSC knocks a team down by your Strength Of Schedule, depending on the amount of tough teams you play, but what are you going to do about it, whine some more?
Dick, didn't seem to catch on, I asked him again what are you going to do about, Ok then lets go into the future of Oregon football schedules and do some disappearing acts and some voo doo would that help?
I say, so what if we play in the OMYGOD the ROSE BOWL....why not say to the BCS idiots and the followers of the non sense ,giving them the bird and say we are proud of the season, up yours!
ono I have an opinion.....zip my lip....

From Foxsports and I am not going to cover the story , you read it ,I'm going to blog about it
From Foxsports Headline: "Stanford clips ducks wings again" Otay we can blame and I know some "want names" who will! We can blame sports Illustrated for the loss, we can blame Coach Helfrich for the loss, we can blame Oregon's QB we can, AWWW SHUT UP....Or we can act like good sportsmanship Hall AW Famer's and suck it up and move on!
I Know I watched the game and thought during the 26-20 loss , I can figured as I watched this might happen sooner or later why, why, you asked ,aren't we dealing with college aged kids, 18-22, who ,no didn't play a few downs with the Seahawks as some think Mariota has done Oregon's QB.
sure Oregon mounted a come back but lost anyway, My Question this morning Live From Springfield, Eugene, Oregon, I hope this small earth quake didn't damage the area very bad the quake am talking about is Oregon's loss!
I know last year one , Richard ,took 2 whole days to get over last years loss to the cardinal, God I hope he is doing well.
I am looking at this loss in realism as most wont, want names, don't we in losing anything in life , we learn what we can do better, we learn" Want names "to move on, and get over it!
thank God I didn't have to hear my dad whining again about the TV ads and I did some last night remembering No ads, No game, thank god I watched it over at a buddies. Oh yea and the BSC BULL CRAP good ,now maybe some can sleep at night!
It really didn't shock me again with the why, When I look at the schedule of the many blowouts this team has had, and the amount of big scores, and some don't understand what goes up must come down....I think the only close game was the Washington game final 45-24 Oregon.
Why cant some " want names" jest shut up and give credit or as ,Oregon baseball coach George Horton Tip your hat,to the victors!
OHMYGOD now Oregon is 8-1 ,can we move on?

That's what I wish I could do at letters to the editor here in Eugene,Oregon and be Anonymous so no one would know.
You cant here you have to ad your name and all that jazz...
Anyway these two, I was talking about think Oregon football is so great ,and yes by golly it has come along way since the 2 win years, I know I recall those years, when you could almost sneak in and almost be welcomed ,why hardly anyone went another why..we sucked we were a bad football team.
I can recall sitting just about anywhere in the stadium, why hardly anyone went. Bowl games, what were they, we couldn't have had a chance if we were invited in those years...
I recall the game when the final was 0-0 with Oregon State?
and some are whining about these years, when we lost to Stanford last year ,one name huh Richard it took you two days to recover?
I sat in rain so many years and almost froze to death But you didn't hear any whining as far as the coaching staff and or players from this old guy..
I recall a game up in Corvallis, Oregon, and Ill add humor so if you don't like to laugh , don't read....
My dad picked me up and I knew it was going to rain so I had dad stop at a store to buy a parka , so he did and tossed it in the back of the van..so when we arrived he said don't for get it, I took it out of the bag and guess what.... Orange , Oregon State. colors.... so there I sat in the rain among Oregon fans with an Orange parka on?
I still don't think many young Oregon fans who sorry weren't even a twinkle in their parents eyes in the Losing years could stand it, If Oregon took a slide in football, my guess joining a club I know as the bandwagon jumpers club, this club has members who jump on and off depending upon how many wins a team has...or loses.
I am proud to say I have been a full blooded duck fan since the year I turned 7. when dad took me and Chris to watch Oregon basketball at McArthur Court in 1959, the coach then was Steve Belko.
Yes lots has changed in the years since and haven't they...
I call a true blue fan who sticks by through thick and thick and Yes sir reee bob how I have see some bad games but hey we still went...
and now before I write a novel......GO DUCKS
November 7, 2013
That 36 year old I was telling you about loves to get in the face of Oregon state beaver fans making Oregon football look like its the best in the world?
Sorry an I ad another name Cary who when last asked about former Oregon Football coach Chip Kelly , Cary said who?
Why, Because both these I think are the under the headline '' fans Of Winners. ''
Richard has no data to work with so he cant show prove of what he is talking about... Me,,and yes an Oregon sports fan use via google research and gather facts, these two don't.
When another thought Sam Bowie ex NBAer was an All star? sorry Pete he wasn't but researching I found in 1981 Bowie was an all American at Kentucky and in 1985 all rookie first team in the NBA, that's research so you don't guess you know!
Back to research on Oregon football , No titles in what I see. nope No college football titles, sure this year isn't over yet so ill grant them that..
Now some think Oregon is this title bound school with a Room chalk full of NC2A titles?/
No sorry and lets look shall we....From Oregon Ducks Wikipedia
Through March 2013, Oregon has won 21 NCAA national championships:
