Eric J. Halvorson, an alumnus of Brophy College Preparatory, was banned from his school’s Facebook page after making negative comments about Democratic VP nominee Tim Kaine, and his pro-abortion position.
Tim Kaine has characterized himself as a man of faith, but as Halvorson noted, his public record portrays quite the opposite. Halvorson’s alleged attack on Kaine was in response to a news column, posted by the school, highlighting Mr. Kaine's Jesuit education.
The alumnus has shared his response with the media, disheartened by the matter: “Mr. Kaine may be a 'man for others'; however, he is not a man for the unborn' – based on his public record and especially with whom he's running: Hillary Clinton.”
The Social Media Director at Brophy should not post updates with political leanings, if they are going to retaliate any time one of their followers express an opinion on the matter. Halvorson was defending the sanctity of life, not anyone’s political agenda.
All too often ethical issues become politicized, even by the very institutions who preach them. Let’s send a message to Brophy College Preparatory: it is unacceptable to penalize their student body and alumni for defending their values.
