The Galleon is curated and managed by Christian Brothers University, a Memphis-based university founded in the Lasallian tradition (a sect within the Catholic faith). Part of our founding mission is to uphold respect for all persons-regardless of political, religious, or social beliefs. As an institution, we take no stand on political matters; to do so would undermine our commitment to intellectual inquiry and thoughtful response to events taking place in our World by members of the CBU community. In alignment with this mission, comments to articles hosted on the Galleon’s site will NOT be deleted, unless they meet the criteria below:

  • Threatening comments that target individuals or groups that insinuate potential action.
  • Spam (promotion of a product or service that does not pertain to the article or content)
  • Threatening comments directed towards the author of the content
  • Bigoted language and/or racial/sexual slurs directed to the author, groups, or individuals

We understand that The Galleon will publish content that may not align with each individual’s viewpoint or ethical paradigm. However, we ask that all readers adhere to a sense of civility, respect, and thoughtfulness when responding to content published on this site. The editorial board will make every effort to remove harmful comments that meet the criteria above as it is observed.
