TO PC or not to PC...

To the Editor:

Campus Crusade for Christ, has changed its name to simply 'Cru.' It
has dropped "Campus" and "Christ" and shortened "Crusade." It evidently
felt that "Campus" offended non-college students. I guess that I can see
their point. Technical students do have souls!
As everyone knows, the term "Crusade" is what makes many suicide bombers
sweat bullets. In fact, if you want to stir up terrorists to commit
atrocities, just mention "Crusade" or call them violent! (It would not
surprise me that there are those who are offended by "Crusade" and what they
perceive to be a positive reference to the Marquis's nasty younger brother,
Cru...)
"Cru" might respond to its name change by asking, "What is in a name?
It is the message that matters." Well, if the name doesn't matter, why
change it? The message is still taking Christ to the campus. Isn't it,
"Cru?" Can you imagine campus Buddhists changing their to name to "Buds?"
Hindus changing to "Hinds?"
Remove the name of "Christ?" Act 4:12 "Neither is there salvation in
any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
whereby we must be saved."
If "Crusade" is the part that makes people wary, then remove the word
'crusade' and your point is clear: Campus for Christ. Can't get any better
than that, as I see it.
