The United Methodist Church is embroiled in controversy about its regressive stance against gay marriage. Duke’s Divinity School, a United Methodist Church seminary, has long found itself in the crosshairs of UMC’s tradition and student advocacy for better progress on queer issues. Lately, the school has considered its future given the possibility that UMC may split into different factions based on different congregations’ social values. Student advocates calling for condemnation of “UMC’s discriminatory LGBTQ policies” are important; however, they do not go far enough. It’s time for the Divinity School to come out as gay.
By the end of this semester, I will have taken ten English classes at Duke, completing the major just in time to graduate (knocks on wood). Some might say this makes me an expert on the English major requirements; I agree. And my main takeaway is this:
Dear Unlicensed Ethicist: I detest John Bolton, a warmonger who has tarnished American foreign policy. I cannot decide if I am more angry with the mustachioed fiend himself or Professor Feaver, who invited him to speak at Duke. Should he really be permitted to spread his lies and hate right here on campus?
The Blue Devils are rolling right now.
Top recruiting classes, hitting at least one 3-pointer in a game and Cascada's "Everytime We Touch" have all been constants for Duke men's basketball this past decade.
After missing Saturday's contest against Notre Dame due to an eye injury sustained in pregame warmups for the contest, Cassius Stanley is set to return to action.
Duke continued its dominant February this past week, while its fellow powerhouses atop the ACC struggled to keep up. The Blue Zone will be here every Monday at noon until March giving you the biggest takeaways from each poll:

It’s the fodder of many doomsday movies—once the president goes down, how does the government continue to function? It turns out Duke has a plan in place too.
There’s trouble in paradise. The luxury apartment complex at 300 Swift, purchased by Duke in December 2016, is beginning to show some wear and tear.
North Carolina may be a presidential battleground state, but the U.S. senatorial, congressional and state races are shaping up to be battles of their own.
When it rains, it pours.
Imagine walking into the polling booth November 3 and the walls were covered with images of children being held under ICE custody. While as Duke students, the vast majority of us would agree that children should not be in cages, we can also agree that such an election would not be fair. Polling booths should be politically neutral.
This week, in the short lull between the end of the Young Trustee campaign season and the beginning of the DSG races, we’re presented with an opportunity to reflect on the work that has been accomplished in the political arena and to consider the challenges that the University and its students, faculty and staff, continue to face in the coming year. However, the chance of healthy reflection seems to be constantly overshadowed by inevitable fights over whose individual triumphs have had the greatest impact.
Content warning: This column includes an account of sexual harassment.
As many of you have become aware, a swastika—the infamous symbol of hate and bigotry—was found painted on the East Campus tunnel last week. This space is commonly used by students and community members to share expressions of peace, love, solidarity and whimsy. While this vile icon was immediately painted over following its discovery and the action was quickly condemned, its impact withstands.
Facing an opponent 1,600 miles from home and one mile above sea level, the Blue Devils hit the road looking to take on an opponent in both hostile and physically treacherous territory.
Sunday afternoon is the time people flock to Pitchforks, getting their tasteful brunch of the day. The 14th-ranked Florida State Seminoles stepped into Cameron Indoor Stadium Sunday afternoon, drowsy and unenergetic, much like the Pitchforks-inhabiting students. What Florida State didn’t realize was that instead of being a customer, it was the daily special on the menu.
Duke continued its explosive start to the season this past weekend, hitting records out of the park on its way to the best start in the young program’s history.
