More on the SFV Cat Fight
Marty Andrade, one of the people named in Joel Flake's letter about the Students for Family Values responds:
Wow, it must come as a shock to find out that Students for Family Values was really a socialist, super leftist organization secretly plotting to legalize abortions, legalize gay marriage, and expand the government while allowing the Campus Republicans to bring conservative speakers to call Democrats a bunch of pussies.
Eva, how I yearn that such men as Powers and Flake weren't associated with SFV.
I do have some reactions to parts of the text, first:
Of the Horowitz deal, Horowitz spoke on academic freedom. The event was not used for anything partisan, it had nothing to do with the Republican Party, and it was a kick ass event the promoted a lot of conservative ideas that fits perfectly into the constitution of SFV. The quote about the Democrats, well, I happen to agree, but legally it's okay, since 527 orgs, which are non partisan, can attack, they just can't endorse or promote. So SFV was within the spirit of the group and the letter of the law when it comes to partisanship of 501c3 non profits.
Of the bit with Powers, yes, he's been kicked off the list, not that it matters. He is using the list to spam, and that's wrong, same with Joel. As for my thoughts on Mr. Powers mental balance, I think he is unbalanced, but what do I know, I've only been studying psychology for five years.
As for my private email correspondence with Alex about Joel's descent into freakdom, I'll stand by that, he is a freak.
Joel left SFV because I am a Catholic, and he thinks Catholics are idol worshipers. That's the only reason he listed in his resignation letter. I can't say that I'm sad to see him go.
That's all on record for your use in your blog if you so choose.
