    The point of Banzaf's suit is not to make dorms single-sex. The point, and the point of all liberal activity, is to concentrate all power in the hands of ... liberals.

    Why doesn't this guy just mind his own business! They must be paying him too much at GWU and not giving him enough work to do, so that he has money and time to poke his nose into other people's lives in this way.

    Maybe it's time for Cardinal Wuerl to weigh in on this. Any institution purporting to be "Catholic" should ascribe to ALL the teachings of the Catholic Church. That includes not putting temptation in front of others. That's all co-ed living does is to place additional temptations in front of youth, whose hormones are already racing. Why???

    Single-sex dorms should be the norm, especially for a Catholic institution. In what way does this professor from another school have standing to sue?

    What on Earth for? I mean I think it is good that single sex-dorms are going to make a comeback, but what could possibly be the motivation to try to stop it?
