Does the force make it God's Will?

Oddly, forcing a situation to have the desired result is more like imposing one's personal will, instead of doing God's will.

Strong-arming faculty into silence, quashing opinion, and making economic threats are really the tactics of Heaven, no?

Perhaps the feasibility study can never measure those things as to what is best for the school.

Alas, it is written that "Hell, and the mouth of the womb, and the earth which is not satisfied with water: and the fire never saith: It is enough. [...] Such is also the way of an adulterous woman, who eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith: I have done no evil." Perhaps, it is not just the adulteress who acts in this way.

Last time I checked, there was no price tag on salvation: it cannot be bought nor can it be made by checking off to-do items --- What doth it avail a fool to have riches, seeing he cannot buy wisdom? He that maketh his house high, seeketh a downfall: and he that refuseth to learn, shall fall into evils.

I think that Big Tom has appropriated the Gospel verse Luke 14:23 "The lord said to the servant,'Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled'" for Ave Maria University and its surrounding town.
