Poll of the Day

This from today's Globe and Mail:

Wilfrid Laurier University says it "recognizes the legal principle of the presumption of innocence" and therefore awarded an MBA student accused of setting up an elaborate terrorism-support network a $5,000 prize for his entrepreneurial acumen. Do you agree with the university?

The presumption of innocence is a legal concept related to trials. It does not mean that individuals and organizations cannot apply good judgment and common sense to life situations, or to consider a person guilty prior to conviction. Otherwise, it would be improper if not illegal for authorities to jail an accused prior to conviction.

It appears that the West, having rejected Christianity, is now in the process of losing its mind.
