Why is it that liberals (and liberal pubs and sites) cannot disagree without being disagreeable? Their commentaries are always full of disrespect, self-righteousness and lame attempts at snotty "humor". Are their proclamations so shallow even they think they need a boost from this type of delivery?

People have done this since we started arresting them centuries ago. The innocent until proven guilty is "in a court of law" -- not public opinion. Otherwise you could never arrest anybody. There may be more people making judgement now due to increased information flow.

Prostitution is a morality law, and it's also wrong. Murder is depriving another person of life. That's not morality, that's a victim of crime. Gambling is a morality law, and it's wrong. Age of Consent laws are to protect minor - potential victims of crimes - who cannot make choices for themselves. That's not a morality law. Just because some laws ALSO follow along with…

And who gets to draw that age line? Are all 18 year olds mature enough to marry? Heck no. Are there some 16 years old that are? Heck yes. An arbitrary age is just that...arbitrary. They've charge under-18 in adult court...what is worse...throwing a < 18 year old in jail for life or letting them marry somebody? Yet the lesser of the two is illegal.

Total enrollment up 14% from 2013

With over 70 percent of colleges and universities across the nation reporting declining enrollment, Culver-Stockton’s incoming fall 2014 class is defying the odds. Not only did C-SC see an increase in enrollment, this year’s class was the largest incoming class since 1991.The College welcomed 380 new students for this class, with 259 freshmen. Total enrollment is estimated at 972, which marks a 14 percent increase from last year.

C-SC has seen increases in class sizes for the last several years, and overall retention is up seven percent. One of the most dramatic increases seen on campus is the rise in the number of students choosing to live on campus. Currently, 89 percent of incoming students will live on campus. To accommodate the increase in students living on campus, the College worked all summer constructing new living spaces out of underutilized locations on campus.

“We could not be more pleased about our record-setting enrollment this year,” said Dr. Kelly Thompson, president of C-SC. “Our growing student body also means growth in diversity and providing a broad spectrum of experiences is a valuable asset to our students.”

Another significant increase was seen in international student enrollment. Over 9 percent of this year’s class came from outside of the country, with the College welcoming 35 international students. Ten different countries are represented, including Australia, Korea, Argentina and Saudi Arabia. This was the largest-ever international cohort welcomed at the College.

“The fact that students from all over the world have chosen to attend Culver-Stockton speaks volumes,” said Misty McBee, director of admission. “Our international students enrich the overall student experience by adding different perspectives to the conversation. And our small student body and tight-knit community really help our international students adjust to the transition of living in a different country.”

The remaining 91 percent of the class hails from 26 other states, with half of the students coming from Missouri. Other highly represented states include Illinios (25 percent of the class), California and Michigan. The single most represented high school in this class was Quincy Senior High School, with 13 students enrolling from there. In addition, 26 students are legacies, having either a parent, sibling or grandparent who had attended C-SC.
