3rd Teach-in Takes Religious Perspective on Attacks
By Brook Corwin
A teach-in held on campus
Wednesday night examined the U.S.
response to terrorist acts though the per
spective of numerous religious faiths.
The forum was the third in a series
that examined alternative responses to
the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The first two teach-ins received
national attention for their opposition to
U.S. military retaliation.
The teach-in’s nine speakers, who
spoke in front of a capacity crowd in the
auditorium of Hanes Art Center, each
represented a different faith. Many said
the military retaliation recently begun
by the U.S. government is not consistent
with their religious beliefs.
“Retaliation is rejected by my reli
gion," said the Rev. Robert Seymour, a
minister at Binkley Baptist Church. “I
think it is clear that Jesus was a pacifist
bin Laden and his
associates, lest they contain coded
instructions for fresh terrorist strikes.
In other news, a third person in
Florida has tested positive for anthrax,
and the case became the subject of a fed
eral criminal investigation.
A 35-year-old woman, whose name
who said not to seek vengeance.”
Several speakers quoted passages in the
Bible to illustrate the divide they perceive
between the beliefs of their faith and U.S.
foreign policy. “The scriptures still say
‘Thou shall not kill,’” said the Rev. Curtis
Gatewood, the president of the Durham
chapter of the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People. “But all
these things seem to go out the window
when the United States declares war.”
John Friedman, the Judea Reform
Congregation’s rabbi, said limited vio
lence is needed in certain situations to
ensure justice, but he cautioned against
the United States acting purely out of
vengeance in its response to the attacks.
“Revenge is separate from seeking
safety and separate from seeking jus
tice,” Friedman said. “The problem with
revenge is that we wish to enjoy it.
Revenge harms the person who takes it
as much as the person who receives it.”
Several speakers argued that while

Coming Out: Five Stories

Four simple words. But admitting that one of them might
describe your sexuality can change your life forever.
Today is National Coming Out Day, an annual event
sponsored by the Human Rights Campaign to encourage
LGBT people to recognize and celebrate their sexuality.
“One of the big things about this day is to say you’re not
alone,” said Marcie Fisher, a high-risk program specialist at the
Center for Healthy Student Behaviors. “It’s something unique
to this community - African-Americans don’t have to come
out as black, Koreans don’t have to come out as Korean.”
UNC offers a number of resources to help students strug
gling with the decision to come out of the closet, most promi

the Sept. 11 attacks were made in the
name of the terrorists’ Islamic faith, reli
gious fundamentalism has not been his
torically limited to Muslims.
“It is true there are extreme (Islamic
groups),” said Rawdan Abu-Issa, a
Muslim and a Sunday school teacher. “In
every major religion you’ll find people
who take extreme measures and inter
pret the scriptures in an extreme way.”
Speakers also said the United States,
while not deserving of the attacks, must
examine its aggressive foreign policies
and the effect its high consumption of
resources have on other nations.
Lenore Yarger, a member of the
Catholic Workers, compared the United
States to the ancient Roman Empire.
“We have peace at the center of the
empire at the expense of war on the
fringes,” she said. “Now the wars on the
fringes in Africa, South America and the

investigation would focus on how the
anthrax got into the building -and why.
Public health officials stressed that
there is no public health threat from the
anthrax, but the case has heightened
fears of a biological attack. The state
ment from Lewis was the most declara

the anthrax resulted from a criminal act.

Fisher said most estimates put the LGBT population at 6 to
10 percent of the general population, meaning there could be
more than 2,000 students on campus confronting the issue.
Today, to commemorate National Coming Out Day, five
students have chosen to share their stories, to put a human
face on these labels and categories and explain how com

Marcus Harvey defies the norm in every possible way.
He’s not just a gay male - he’s a black gay male, raised in

attending Black Student Movement meetings.

After delaying their vote on
a redistricting plan, House
representatives are hoping
to agree on a plan today.

RALEIGH - N.C. representatives
broke out the popcorn in an extended
House session Wednesday as legislators
debated amendments to the Sutton II
The House redistricting plan was
expected to gain approval during
Wednesday’s session, but majority lead
ers adjourned the meeting after an
amendment passed that Democrats
thought would fail.
Debate in the early afternoon meet
ing was postponed four times for
lengthy recesses and caucus meetings.
Rep. Ronnie Sutton, D-Hoke, the
bill’s sponsor, opened the redistricting
discussion by reminding representatives
that compromise is necessary and that
there isn’t a plan that could fit all mem
“If all 120 members went into sepa
rate rooms and drew plans, we’d have
120 different plans,” Sutton said.
Sutton said the plan is fair and would
stand up in court
“We have gone a long way to make
the Sutton II plan better than the Sutton
I,” Sutton said.
Once the discussion got under way
Rep. Art Pope, R-Wake, and Sutton
monopolized the majority of the debate.
Sutton encouraged fellow
Democrats to vote against the first
amendment that was proposed because
it would increase the number of
Republicans in a district.
The comment elicited repeated
questions from Pope as to the criteria
Sutton used for drawing the district
“Did you in general consider the
party result when drawing the district
lines?” Pope asked.
Republicans argued that Sutton’s
plans have unbalanced districts and are
Rep. Larry Justus, R-Henderson,
described the lack of balanced districts
was a “crying shame.”
“I hope we don’t get to the point
that we’re up to our knees in tears
before we’re done tonight,” Justus said.
But Rep. Joe Hackney, D-Orange,
read information from other states’
redistricting plans, citing them as far
worse. Hackney said the Sutton plan
does not ensure either party a majority
for the next 10 years.
“The sin w r e have committed, what is
the sin, it’s not Republican enough?”
Sutton came under fire from Pope,
who said minorities are underrepre
sented in the existing plan, but Sutton
said it was unavoidable.
“I’ll be the first to admit there is some
retrogression in some of these districts,”
