“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Webster Cook Kicked Off UCF Senate!

Webster Cook, the UCF student who took the Eucharist hostage and changed his stated motive from a political protest to just showing the Eucharist to a friend when the outrage ensued, was voted off the UCF Senate last night.

As reported by the Central Florida Future, UCF's newspaper:

"The vote on the charge of misfeasance was 22-7-1 against Cook. After the vote was tallied, Cook was officially removed from office.
...misfeasance, which is defined by SGA as a lawful act performed in a wrongful manner by a Student Government official in execution of his or her duties."

Maybe this will be a lesson learned for him. He believed that he could charm and lie his way of what he did. 22 members of the UCF Senate, his contemporaries, said that he couldn't. He might be a little less cocky this morning, but I doubt it.

It is worth noting how 20-year-old college students know what is right in their hearts and have the courage to act, but this can't be said of 50-year-old administrators at the University of Minnesota.

Fair enough, but has Cook admitted his wrong, or is he still playing the victim?

More desecration of the Body of Christ in Florida. Perhaps a friend of Mr. Cook?
