An opinion


By Jake Williams


Timothy "The Oak Grove Preacher" Metcalf is required to fill out a monthly permit at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania Center for Student Life to preach on what he calls "a grassy knoll" between Leonard and Wilson halls, he said in an Oct. 11 interview in a Davis Hall classroom.


That same day in the Oak Grove, members of the Secular Student Alliance, regarded as a "special interest organization" by IUP, were distributing a survey questionnaire to gauge public opinion about "Oak Grove preachers."


"We have constructed this survey in such a way as to gain an unbiased consensus by polling the faculty/staff/students," the questionnaire reads. "The information you submit will be combined and copied, then mailed to the IUP President, as well as the aforementioned men who preach to the IUP community."


However, the document narrows allowable responses.
