Rick Majerus is losing his mind

St. Louis coach Rick Majerus, who already has raised eyebrows this season by stating a pro-abortion pro-choice stance that conflicts with the Catholic leadership of his university, was quietly reprimanded this week after coming unhinged Saturday during an 81-64 loss at Charlotte.

According to people at the game, Majerus lost control of his emotions after a shot-clock issue went against his Billikens. Majerus approached the scorer's table, found the offending official and unleashed verbal obscenities. One source said Majerus made an obscene gesture as well.

Officials at Charlotte and the A-10 confirm that Majerus was rebuked by the league and has apologized to Charlotte.

Of course the real question is this: What would Ashley Judd think of Majerus now?

The first step in any argument is to at least find the definition of the issue you are arguing on.

So, the  issue is simple when you analyze it, and it doesn't matter where you are pro-choice or pro-life. It's just a matter of understanding Doyel's definition of abortion. If, as it seems to me, he defines abortion as murder of an unborn fetus, then it would make sense to be able substitute the phrases "pro-choice" & "pro-abortion".

In this case, saying it is ok for someone else to commit is the same as committing it oneself.  It is the black and white nature of his definition that makes this so.

However, many people don't ascribe to this definition, theirs being more shades of grey, like for example, the issue of drinking alcohol. In this case, you can be opposed to actually drinking it without denying some else's right to drink it.

If you can't agree on the definition of the issue, don't bother arguing.

That is total b-s, and nothing but the political junk spewed by the ultra right who, in the name of freedom, want to control what people do in their own lives. There are a lot of things I abhor that are legal. Just because I think is something is wrong or immoral or improper doesn't mean that it should be illegal.

You're not really very smart are you?

You started out your post agreeing with my point, yet you didn't actually realize that you agreed with it LOL

So you agree that a health risk to a mother is a valid reason for an abortion. According to your VERY OWN REASONING,

***** that makes YOU pro-abortion *****

Wake up and learn to think, not just spout unreasoning venom.

Are you really Pro-abortion. Of course not, and neither are ANY of the people you have been accusing of that.

Yes, I went to SLU during my freshman year of college (1987-88) and transferred out for mainly economic reasons.  They had some good Catholic teaching there, but they also gave free reign to dissenting theology.  Maybe it's gotten better since I was there.  I'll grant you that.  I do stand partially corrected: I just read that SLU objected to the blasphemous and disgusting play "The Vagina Monologues" being performed on its campus.  See this link: . Good for them!

But, this isn't just me talking.  Check out the following link to a respected Italian Catholic news magazine.  The headline is "Last Call for the Society of Jesus – To Obedience" where the Pope basically called out the Jesuits and reminded them of their fourth vow: fidelity to the Pope.  Since the 60's especially, the Jesuits have almost written the play book on dissenting from Catholic teaching and even worse teaching others to do the same.

It's not just SLU.  I live in the Boston area, and Jesuit-run BC has long since stopped being a Catholic college.  Same with Georgetown.

Do you go to SLU??   Have you ever been there??   Seems like you quite a bit about SLU - check out SLU mission statement:

The Mission of Saint Louis University is the pursuit of truth for the greater glory of God and for the service of humanity. The University seeks excellence in the fulfillment of its corporate purposes of teaching, research and community service. It is dedicated to leadership in the continuing quest for understanding of God's creation, and for the discovery, dissemination and integration of the values, knowledge and skills required to transform society in the spirit of the Gospels. As a Catholic, Jesuit university, the pursuit is motivated by the inspiration and values of the Judaeo-Christian tradition and is guided by the spiritual and intellectual ideals of the Society of Jesus.

In support of this mission the University

Strives continuously to seek means to build upon its Catholic, Jesuit identity, and to promote activities which apply that intellectual and ethical heritage to work for the good of society as a whole.

Good discussion/debate  -obviously abortion is a very touchy subject for some.   Only thing I ask is for when people say something, make sure you bring it with legit info and not your OPINION.  I go to SLU, the religious teachings are still fully embedded in University classes and throughout the University as a whole.

Pro-abortion and pro-choice are the same thing.  "Pro-choice&
quot; is just a word game that the pro-abortion side would have you fall for.   Ask yourself, what choice is someone who is "pro-choice" in favor of making: why, abortion of course! 

As for St Louis U being a Catholic college, they are Catholic in name only.  Like many schools founded by Catholic religious orders like the Jesuits (SLU, Georgetown, etc) or Holy Cross Fathers (Notre Dame), etc, they used to follow Catholic teachings but have long since rebelled against those teachings.  All Archbishop Burke of St Louis is doing is insisting on "truth in advertising": If you call yourself Catholic, act and teach like a Catholic.  Majerus' pro-abortion problem isn't so much with St Louis U (which is no longer truly Catholic) but rather with Archbishop Burke whose job it is to make sure that institutions in his diocese of St Louis which claim to be Catholic actually are Catholic.

Nevermind, everyone have a nice day.  I am sorry I tried.  I am a "moron."

He can't lose something that he never had?

I think, over the years, his mind has slipped down into his abdomen.  That really sucks.  First he apologizes to Charlotte, now he must apologize to Ashley.  Sounds like some kind'a  (secks) sex offender.

Wellermove, you couldn't be more wrong.  You're putting thoughts and ideas in Majerus' head that may or may not be there.  He says he is pro choice and I leave it at that.  His school would have known what his position is before they hired him.  This should not have been an issue. Period.
