Eucharistic Protest

 

In protest against student fees for religious services at the University of Central Florida, a student senator, Webster Cook, recently walked out of a campus Mass with the Eucharist.

That is why the UCF administration needs to act swiftly and decisively in seeing that justice is done. All options should be on the table, including expulsion.
