John J. DeGioia | Posted 05.02.2012 | College
John J. DeGioia

Rush Limbaugh's remarks about Sandra Fluke, following her respectful and sincere testimony, can only be described as misogynistic, vitriolic, and a misrepresentation of the position of our student. In our vibrant and diverse society, there always are important differences that need to be debated, with strong and legitimate beliefs held on all sides of challenging issues. The greatest contribution of the American project is the recognition that together, we can rely on civil discourse to engage the tensions that characterize these difficult issues, and work towards resolutions that balance deeply held and different perspectives. We must return to the values that hold us together.
