It even happened to me. So shut up Log in to Reply Mark Farris says: March 22, 2012 at 11:12 pm I am a graduate alumni. I had very little interaction with any students who I knew to be ACB members. However, I was very aware of the atmosphere that was being created on campus. The student body’s lack of acceptance for all students is disgraceful. Prior to attending Lindenwood, I attended Texas Christian University. While this university was religiously founded, and to this day houses a seminary, the environment created there was not one of naiveness, nor did the university attempt to suppress intelligent conversation. Lindenwood has grown exponentially over the last few years, and with that has come growing pains i.e. the power outage in Roemer not long ago. With those more obvious growing pains comes the more subtle growing pains of how a more diverse student body is to be treated. If Lindenwood is going to ever receive donation money from this alumnus, it will need to illustrate a collegiate environment in which ALL students are allowed to organize themselves and engage in intelligent conversation about all issues that effect this country and the campus itself. A vocal minority that attempts to religiously sway a liberal art universities population one way or another is wrong, no matter if the university is a private or public one. Unless you are an explicit religious school i.e. BYU, Liberty University you have no business suppressing others viewpoints, nor suppressing the act of intelligent conversation amongst the student body.

Their love for others is so easy to see through their selflessness in serving others. Of course no one is perfect, but there’s no doubt in my mind that they would drop everything to help me. Some times helping, means challenging. I’ve done some dumb stuff in my life and if it wasn’t for Kerry Cox I don’t kno where my life whould be. I’m not apart of ACB @ LU, but I sure would love to be!

I have known him for about ten years and in that time have seen nothing but passion for God and the students in his ministry. He does nothing but try to hold people to a biblical standardm Log in to Reply Stephanie says: March 23, 2012 at 12:31 pm I’m a 44 year old woman and I devoted my life to Christ through the campus minstry at age 21. I was shown love, patience and support. I know this is the type of ministry ACB is trying to have. I know without a doubt that Kerry has a love for God and people. Some of the great events on Lindenwood’s campus is because of ACB. Keep up the good work Kerry. Lindenwood students are blessed to have you on their campus.

The journalists did a super job relaying information to the public and to be factual. What I don’t understand is how a person that flaunts such intimidation and control is allowed on campus at all. Pretty scary if you ask me. I would be very apprehensive to even be around Kerry. Log in to Reply Katie says: March 23, 2012 at 5:18 pm Students from different walks of faith are not welcome. Yes, they are welcome to cross chats and the events held on campus. If you want to have lasting relationships with ACB you will have to change your views of religion to match theirs. Even the slight differences christian and catholics aren’t tolerated. Also, Kerry is the campus minister of ACB and the Director of Student Life and Leadership. Long standing close ties is a huge understatement. He is conflicted and this needs to be addressed. Log in to Reply kayla says: March 31, 2012 at 3:49 pm where did this whole article go??
