College Paper Reflects Anti-Christian Bias 
Kimberly Level's father, Tom Level, notes that the Meramec Community College student newspaper, Montage, "is evidence of the hostile, intimidating and demeaning environment. It also reflects how low things have really gotten, instead of striving for excellence. Perhaps it should be renamed The Gutter Gazette." The October 23, 2003 issue contains the following items:

  • "Good Moon Rising," an article describing a Wiccan witches' ceremony and recommending attendance at one in the future 
  • "Music is not Satanic, Silly," a commentary defending rap music lyrics such as "I am the Antichrist" and "Disemboweled on the altar jesus christ, entrails in the pentagram circle, spill his blood and reversing catholic hymn, invocate the onslaught of Satan," and an avowed satanist singer who has "an upside-down cross burned into his forehead" 
  • A column advocating a protest against an anti-homosexual religious plaque in Wyoming and suggesting use of websites www.hardcoreramming.com and www.satan.net 
  • Various profane entries not suitable for reprinting.

Tom Level says that with professors like Dr. Blalock, it is not surprising that students feel comfortable printing such articles. Mr. Level reports that in his meeting with Dr. Blalock to complain about her American history course, "She made many outrageous statements: The Jesuit missionaries were not missionaries but the pope's army and just killed people." He adds, "She has problems with organized church and religion."
