The proposed amendment
would define “marriage" as
a union only between a man

Separation of church and state crucial election issue

By Stephen Burnett
Itithfttlhdi IERtttIL

Stem-cell research. the Ten Com-
mandments in courthouses. faith-
based initiatives and even national de-
fense , they‘ve all been big issues in
this election year. based on local and
national candidates‘ heated disagree-
ments on both sides.

The separation of church and state
is no exception.

L'nderscoring the ongoing debate.
last Tuesday the IRS clarified that
members of churches or nonprofit re»
ligious groups can‘t publicly pray for
any candidate to win.

Technically the groups can pray
for them. but they'll lose their tax-ex—
empt status.

Transylvania biology graduate Kia
.Iahed. a representative to the Islamic
community from the Muslim Student
Association. said he disagrees.

“Obviously there‘s a separation be-
tween church and state in this coun-
try." Jahed said. “But (praying pub-
licly for a candidate) is not enforcing
any kind of politics. or getting in-
volved in any politics.“

After all. Jahed added. whether the
IRS hears the prayer or not. God can

“What‘s the difference if you do it
in public or private?“ he said. ”God
hears the prayer of someone who is
secluded or in open space,"

Barry Neese. campus minister for
Lutheran and Episcopal (‘ampus Min-
istry. also said he‘s unsure about the
IRS‘s position against a church pray-
ing for a candidate.

“Even though I don‘t agree with
the church and what they‘re doing. I
don't think that the state can tell them
who to pray for and what to pray for."
.‘s‘eese said. "I think that‘s a clear line
drawn (and) the state has crossed
the boundary.“

Denominational disagreement

including Buddhists. (‘liristians.

opinions on the church state connec

separation between government and

in Islam. the worldly life revolves
around religion. There is no separa

beneficial t‘or you as a Muslim in this
country." Jahed said. "If you're not
active in the political process. if you
don't vote. you won't have your voice

UK music history professor Lance
Brunner. a Buddhist, said he fully be-
lieves in separation of church and

“The separation needs to be com-
plete and definite.“ Brunner said.
"The overlapping of a political agenda
on a religious agenda is very danger-
ous and inappropriate.

"People are free to ex-

press their own views and
to be spiritually in-
formed." Brunner added.
“But to impose one's
own religious beliefs on
others is a violation of
their right to believe
what they want."

Lutheran campus
minister Neese said
government facilities
should not include
overtly religious texts
like the Ten (‘ommand-

That's because the
commandments were
written for people of
faith. he said, Posting

“certainly doesii‘t re»

in the country.

“The Lutheran tra
dition would draw the
support of separation
of church and state."
Neese said, "Meaning
that as a church we do
not depend upon the
state to tell its what to
do or what not to do in terms of min»

In other words. Necse added. the
church shouldn‘t have to ask the state
“if it's OK if we function this way”

Second year I‘K philosophy major
.loel llaubenreicli. president of (‘ats
for ('hrist. said he applies the term
“separation" more loosely.

"The language in the (‘onstitution
is more to protect the church from the
state than the state from the church.“
he said. The state should leave the
churches alone but it doesn‘t mean
censoring practices or elements ol re-
ligion eyen if they show up on public
property. he said

“I certainly do not endorse (hav-
ingi a state religion of any sort.“
llaubenreicli said. “liut you can‘t
across the board rule out anything
that might ha\c something to do with
l‘hris'tianity or .ltitlaism or whatever;
because it they are true. it's a good
solid principle. and we should fully
support that in a government.

Craft said she believes

“It‘s manipulating the

You‘re hoping that your constituent

Lutheran minister Neese disasso-
ciated himself from the “religious

“I am uncomfortable with the type

 Celebs, politics a volatile combination

By Joshua Worthington and Jason Pinter

the Kentucky kernel

In the 2000 presidential election.
36.1 percent of voters age 18 to 30
showed up on Election Day to vote.
These 42 million young. eligible voters
are being targeted this election season
by an army of celebrities and high-pro-
file personalities who are trying to im—
prove turnout oii Election Day 2001.

Whether the stars are touting their
political mantras through stage shUWs
or by speaking and touring with
groups organized to reach out to young
voters. the message is clear: Show up
on Nov. 2 and cast your vote.

Madonna reached out to young vot-
ers this year by staging a summer coir
cert run that was largely political in
nature. Her “Relnvention World Tour
2004" played 36 sold—out shows to audi-
ences in 13 US. cities.

During the song “American Life.“ a
huge plasma screen behind the singer
and her troop of dancers displayed
larger-than-life images of war-torn
Iraq. The sometimes disturbing and
graphic images were the backdrop in a
song where Madonna sings. “I'm just
living out the American dream. and I
just realized that nothing is what it
seems." The stage show comes to an
end when President Bush and Saddam
Hussein look-alikes light up and share
a cigar.

“it makes you think more about
the issues when you go see someone
like Madonna and she is taking a
stance on the war and the election like
she has." said hospitality management
junior Brian Blankenship. “lt's awe-
some that she‘s using her power and
influence to get young people to vote."

Rock the Vote. which Madonna
worked with in the ‘90s. has stepped up
its efforts during this political cycle.
Rock the Vote was formed in 1990 as a
non-profit. nonpartisan organization
dedicated to educating young people
about campaign issues. protecting free-
dom of speech and motivating thou-
sands of young voters to register to
vote and take part iii the political

Before the prophet Muhammad
founded lslam. he said. "non-Muslims
were worshipping idols. and they used
to bury their children alive.

“You should not be killing a hu-
man soul.” be said. "It is not our right
to kill even ourselves. to commit
suicide. Even in the Quran it says
don‘t kill your children because you
could be afraid of not being able to
provide for them. (lod will provide for
you and your children.”

Despite Kerry's support for aborr
tion. elsEzz confirmed many polls that
find the majority of American Mus
linis plan to vote for Kerry.

“Meaning that a vote for Kerry is
not for Kerry. for his principles and
what he stands for." elEzz said. “it's
because of what George Bush has
done to the American Muslims in this
country treating them as second-
class citizens.

"However. Muslims do not agree
with some of Kerry‘s principles."
such as support for abortion and gay
rights. el»Ez’/. continued. “But Ameri
can Muslims feel that for the better of
the country and the betterment of the
American Muslims. we need to get rid
of this adiiiiiiistration."

Buddhist Brunner also expressed
support for removing Bush.

"Bush's policies are wrong-headed


Rock the Vote pledged to register 1
million new voters in 2004. It plans to
increase voter turnout by engaging
and educating young voters. getting
politicians and parties to target young
voters and focusing the attention of
the media on young voters.

To facilitate this goal Rock the Vote
launched a 50-city bus tour earlier this
year. The bus is stopping in some of
the most hotly contested cities in the
2004 campaign. According to the Rock
the Vote Web site. the event is "a pow»
erful. pro-vote experience.“

Rock the Vote has partnered again
with MTV together. the tWo organi-
zations have the goal of motivating 20
million young voters to go to the polls.
MTV has dubbed the campaign “20
Million Loud."

According to M’I‘Vcom, the last
election, which 18 million young voters
voted in. was decided by only 500.000
votes. Some states were decided by as
few as 500 votes. So its premise for the
2004 campaign is simple: What if 20
million young voters voted?

“1 think it‘s good that MTV is so fo-
cused on getting the vote out." said
communication disorder graduate stu-
dent Jeremy Saylor. Saylor said he did
not vote in the 2000 election. but has al-
ready made up his mind as to whom he
will vote for tomorrow.

“()ur age group will be the ones to
decide this election.“ Saylor said.

MTV‘s 20 Million Loud is the latest
venture in campaigning for the cable
channel. but MTV has been involved in
politics since the 1992 presidential elec~
tion. when it first launched its “Choose
or Lose" campaign. The 1996 and 2000
presidential elections saw MTV‘s influ-
ence and power with young voters
grow as the network registered record
numbers of voters.

Sean “P. Diddy" (Tombs recently
embarked on a new project. Vote or
Die. Like Rock the Vote. Vote or Die is
a nonprofit. nonpartisan organization
with a mission to educate. motivate
and empower millions of young Amer-
icaiis to access their power and vote on

Those who commented on the
church state issue stressed that their
opinions were their own. and not nec

during her tour

All of the gimmicks and endorse-

take part in turning some voters off. It
may be hard for some potential voters
to take the message from the celebri-
