Wren Cross Watch

A report on last night’s William & Mary debate:

Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza wrangled with College of William and Mary religion professor David Holmes in a full-to-capacity Wren Chapel for 90 minutes, arguing over whether a 2-foot tall cross should be reinstated permanently on the altar.

It’s sort of interesting how D’Souza is a “conservative” but his debating opponent isn’t a “liberal.” The article also fails to mention how W&M prez Gene Nichol dodged an invitation to debate D’Souza.
