This Day In Daily History

Preachers talk, but few students are listening in

Oct. 19, 1987 – Mike Caulk isn’t afraid to call you a whore.

“You are all whores and whore mongers,” Caulk said to a crowd of students the other day.

But he has an agenda. A sacred one in fact. A preacher, he along with other Diag evangelists plead, urge and downright insult students every trip they make to the University in their religious mission to Christinize the campus student body.

“Sir, you are the kind of person who would rape a young girl if you had the oppotunity,” screamed one preacher who wouldn’t give his name as he waved a cane at a passing student.

But are students listening? LSA senior Francine Berman says most likely not.
