I applaud the work of Damon Owens ’88 with the Theology of the Body Institute (“Sex and God,” Classes, September/October). His comments about being the odd man out at Brown resonated with me, an odd woman out, largely because of our conservative Christian beliefs. I am thrilled to hear that he has kept true to these tenets and has made them his life’s passion.

Although not a Catholic, as an American coming from an American school in Egypt with students from all different walks of life, I thought that coming to Brown would be a similarly diverse experience. Brown seemed very tolerant on the surface until it came to my conservative Christian beliefs. Needless to say, I am glad to see Brown graduates with such conservative beliefs as Damon Owens’s, and I am even more surprised that the BAM covered them!

Were you beaten up at Brown because of your Christian ideas? Subjected to an inquisition? Made to recant your beliefs upon pain of death? Or are you simply confusing being "tolerant" with being "deferential" and "uncritical", as many Christians strangely insist on doing these days?
