Your tax dollars insulting one Christian at a time. UPDATED: Not tax dollars, student fees

Warning! Some of the images and language contained in this document is offensive. - Sorry, it's a PDF.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, along comes the Insurgent, a student run newspaper at the University of Oregon. If you prefer not to click the link above to see the proof for yourself, go
here and here for a synopsis of the whole situation.

UPDATE:
Tim posted in the comments that the Insurgent does not receive tax dollars, but rather funds from the incidental fees paid by students. Here are his exact words:

"Actually, The Insurgent is funded by the Student Incidental Fee, which is paid entirely by students at the University to fund all sorts of student groups. The Insurgent gets roughtly $18,000 anually to cover their expenses, this is all Incidental Fee money, none of it is from taxes. Let alone federal taxes. The Oregon Commentator also receives incidental fees to pay for their printing & duplication, although the website is paid for by a private party. Me. "

Thank you Tim for making sure that all information relevant to this issue is being heard.
