The InterVarsity Christian Fellowship planned to host a Jesus look-a-like contest tonight on the Tower Lawn. Participants of the challenge are encouraged to dress up and represent how they view Jesus — a jock, a geek, a woman, a homeless person or anything else one could conjure.

The Secular Student Alliance held an event in which students could be de-baptized, in which they were sprayed with unholy water while being read the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints baptism prayer backward. A member of the SSA said they chose that prayer because it was the shortest/Kelsey Samuels, UI Argonaut. More here.
Question: The Argonaut editorialist goes on to say that such activities as those described above should be OK on campus, as long as they don't disrupt education -- and that those who disapprove don't have to participate. Do you agree?
