What is going on at BYU?

I wouldn't consider this hate speech either.  But it is inappropriate to deface someone's authorized campus poster with unauthorized signs.  Whomever taped those papers to the newsstand likely thought that they were doing the right thing in supposedly standing up for church doctrine but I believe they were breaking BYU rules (and thus the honor code) in so doing.

I welcome correction if things have changed and students are now allowed to post signs on campus without receiving proper permission.

How has the sign been defaced?

(I'm the Catholic who sometimes likes to needle LDS on their abortion exceptions 😛)

I don't understand why anyone would have a problem with abortion when the life of the mother is at risk. If the mom dies, so does the baby.  Not sure how that is better than keeping one life around.

Let's start with defending the LDS view of the right to abortion in the case of rape or incest. Why kill the fetus because its father was a terrible person?

I'm currently a student at BYU. This was not a LGBTQ+ event, this was a publication of the on-campus, student-written, faculty-overseen  political quarterly, the BYU Political Review. They've become controversial recently. The last issue featured a defense of the legality of abortion (with a few claims that they were not endorsing it as a morally right position, just one that should be legal.) This most recent issue, which came out this week, featured as the cover article a piece expressing support for additional legal protections for LGBTQ+. While it did not directly endorse gay marriage as a morally acceptable stance, it defended its legality and advocated for, among other things, making LGBTQ+ a "federally protected class" and equality legislation regarding adoption by LGBTQ+ couples. The rainbow-background on the news stand was the front cover of the piece.

The Political Review has a few conservative authors but overall bends hard to the left, which isn't a problem on it's own, but when it comes to social issues, as demonstrated above, they do play a little fast and loose with Church positions on various matters. If BYU is paying for the printing of this publication, I would like to have that reviewed as I don't think tithing funds should be used for this.

As for the charge that it's "hate," the word hate has lost all meaning these days as everybody and their dog uses it to decry people who disagree with them on moral issues. I don't have enough time to be bothered every time somebody calls me or my coreligionists out as "hateful". 

I do have a copy of the article in my possession. Not sure if I'm allowed to scan an image of it and post it here but I'll see if I can so you can review it for yourself. 

Edit: Just checked out the Twitter thread. Absolutely freaking hilarious. What a fetid cesspool. 

It's comical that you find supporting legal rights for all people, and supporting the laws as they currently exist in the US, is "hard left".

It's fine that you don't think church tithing funds should pay for speech you don't agree with, but I don't think tithing funds should be used to subsidize the education of people who oppose the legal, lawful rights of others. I guess none of us gets everything we want ;) 

But yes, maybe "hate" gets thrown around too often to describe opposition. On the other hand, I wonder how you would feel if others advocated for the suppression of your legal rights based on your religion, race, creed, nationality etc.

There are two related reasons, in my view, for the "no exceptions" dogma. First, it's the outcome of the assertion that the life of a fetus is of absolutely equal value to the life of a born person. To say there can be exceptions in the case of a threat to the life of the mother is to say that the life of the mother takes priority, or that the life of the fetus is of comparably lesser value, even if only marginally. That undermines the argument that the fetus is of equal value, so someone concerned with asserting the absolute equality of a fetus and any born person might feel compelled to insist that that relative inequality cannot exist. Here's where the second reason comes in. Most reasonable people would recognize that that leads to the nonsensical decision to put both lives at risk, but to assert the "no exceptions" dogma is socio-culturally "costly" precisely because of that nonsensical position. Things that are "costly" are risky, but doing costly things also signals to members of an ideological group that someone is willing to take on risk in the name of the group, and is therefore deeply committed to the group. This is called costly signaling. In the cognitive sciences, it's referred to as a credibility enhancing display. Most of this decision-making takes place on an intuitive (subconscious) level, meaning we're not consciously aware of the underlying motivations, but people would be surprised how much of their decision making is influenced by those intuitions. Anyway, it's ultimately a silly thing to assert, but because it signals deeper commitment to other members of an ideological group, it's a pretty secure means of improving one's standing within that group, and after enough people assert it, it becomes an identity marker, or a minimum standard to be considered a member in good standing within the group.

Yes.  What's your point?

Ripped down posters, defaced posters, permanent marker comments scribbled over offending posters, and counter-message poster pasted over each other are regular features on campus bulletin boards. Usually with a liberal cocktail of obscenities thrown in for added effect. This BYU thingy is nothing in comparison.

I’m comparing my observations from University of Washington, Evergreen State College, Pierce College, Bellevue College, Central and Western Washington Universities. Not so much with some schools I have seen the South.

The church doesn't believe anything of the sort.   It chooses not to discipline, probably because a) they've received inspiration not to; or haven't received inspiration to, or because there is no doctrine on exactly when the spirit enters the body or maybe because the Church determines that these issues and decisions can only be fairly judged by God.  But the LDS Church just doesn't take a position, which is way different from "believes that abortion is morally acceptable".

I didn't say morally required. I said morally acceptable. If a woman who is raped prays and decides that God is ok with her having an abortion, doesn't the LDS church agree that it is acceptable then to have one?

Hate may be too strong of a word. But self-righteous and petty seems accurate.

 i looked up the articles this was pinned up on (it was on lgbt protections still needed in the US and internationally. Only one part of it even talk about lgbt families). This made the focus then seem at best only marginally related and reactive to bringing up lgbt issues. I was trying to think of a parallel that fit tthis...like talking about legal and or family concerns for interracial couples and posting and old quote from a GA about marrying within the group. But the one that fit it best for me was something I experienced on my mission with a couple of evangelicals when we went door to door. One specifically Welcomed us into his home, brought his young teen/child into the room and proceeded to use us as living examples as to why mormons were biblically wrong. Not wanting to bible-bash, especially in front if his child, we calmly took it for a tiny bit, had a prayer and were kindly saying goodbye. Before we left he made a point to say that he usually would tell someone “god speed!” But since he didn’t believe we were doing to Lords work he wouldn’t do so. It was unnecessary, petty, and self-righteous. We already knew he strongly disagreed with us, we were trying to be kind while sharing our beliefs, but he went out of his way to drive his point just a little further. 
 

Nearly everyone at BYU is likely to know the church’s stance on lgbt concerns, some are likely to disagree with them to an extent, and one specifically wrote and article on an adjacent topic of legal protections still needed for lgbt communities. Instead of really engaging in meaningful dialogue or submitting a response about the article, the person tacks a quote and slots in the proc to overstate a point in an inappropriate fashion. It doesn’t actually help or create dialogue. It just make him/her and those who agree with them feel good about themselves by reaffirming their beliefs over another.

 

thus self-righteous and petty

with luv,

I wish I had any confidence whatsoever that this isn't either an LGBT or "Ally" individual trying to generate additional bad press for the Church/BYU.  Could it be genuine? Sure. With all the talk on that thread of people ready to stake out the area on the 6th and 7th and then no follow-up since then? I'm suspicious.

Again NO.  The church just doesn't discipline  it does not agree with the mother's decision or "accept it morally".

What do you define "justify" as if not "morally acceptable"?  (Actual question, not rhetorical) Also, what are the implications for you of advising decisions be made in consultations with church leaders, decisions that include the possibility of a "justified" abortion?

Quote

Church leaders have said that some exceptional circumstances may justify an abortion, such as when pregnancy is the result of incest or rape, when the life or health of the mother is judged by competent medical authority to be in serious jeopardy, or when the fetus is known by competent medical authority to have severe defects that will not allow the baby to survive beyond birth. But even these circumstances do not automatically justify an abortion. Those who face such circumstances should consider abortion only after consulting with their local Church leaders and receiving a confirmation through earnest prayer.

I agree, “justify” implies morally acceptable.

If Bishop Jones would normally discipline Sister Smith for having an abortion but, as a matter of church policy, he does not discipline her when she aborts a fetus conceived through rape, it does imply moral acceptability.  Or, at the very least, it implies that in our limited mortal view, we’re going to accept it as okay... and Sister Smith and God can work through it over a pot of herbal tea in the post-existence.

I’ve not been following this discussion exhaustively, but I have viewed the photo that was posted here. It appears from that photo that the original poster was not damaged in any way. Furthermore, the items taped to it were placed in such a way as to not cover up any material content in the poster, and that the only reason they were placed on the poster at all is that it covered the full expanse of the display stand and there would have been nowhere else on the display stand to place them. Indeed, it appears that whoever placed the later items was thoughtful  enough to not alter or obscure any content on the original poster. 
 

I must conclude, therefore, that rockpond’s accusation of “defacement” is overwrought. I don’t know what specific provision of the BYU honor code he is applying here, but it strikes me  that his accusation of honor code violation is overwrought as well.

I responded regarding the facts of what had happened.  I also noted that referring to this as hate speech was incorrect.  There was nothing overwrought in my comments as I didn’t make a big deal of this. 
 

I’ve pasted below, for reference, the first part of the BYU Honor Code.  While I appreciate differing opinions, especially on a college campus, it should be done in the right way.  What was done in this case, while not a big deal, was nevertheless a violation of campus policies and demonstrated a lack of respect.

As I also said, this is my alma mater and a special campus, I hold it to a high standard.

 

Honor Code Statement

We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men....If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. (Thirteenth Article of Faith.)

As a matter of personal commitment, the faculty, administration, staff, and students of Brigham Young University, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, BYU-I, and LDS Business College seek to demonstrate in daily living on and off-campus those moral virtues encompassed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and will:

  • Be honest
  • Live a chaste and virtuous life
  • Obey the law and all campus policies
  • Use clean language
  • Respect others
  • Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee, and substance abuse
  • Participate regularly in church services

The only part of the above that I see <might> apply in this instance is the point about obeying campus policies. Is there a specific campus policy that forbids absolutely the placing of content adjacent to a poster? That’s not a rhetorical question; I really don’t know. 
 

In any event, I stand by my opinion that the accusation was overwrought. Nothing was defaced. Nothing or no one was disrespected, unless you regard publicizing an opposing view as disrespect

Unless there is some agreed upon "only the definition from ______ dictionary", then any argument against rockpond seems lacking

 

for instance

de·face

  (dĭ-fās′)

tr.v. de·facedde·fac·ingde·fac·es
1. To mar or spoil the appearance or surface of; disfigure.
2. To impair the usefulness, value, or influence of.
3. Obsolete To obliterate; destroy.
 
"spoil the appearance or surface of; disfigure"   Seems to me both happened, and as such use the word defaced is acceptable.
