Turn that graph upside down and you’ll see what percentage of those religions “ Don’t give a damn what university professors think....”................

I suspect that 53% is a pretty low figure. I suspect that the anti-Evangelical/Conservative bias is much higher than that.

During his stint on the Cornell Law School admissions board, the longtime lawyer and evangelical stuck up for at least one highly qualified applicant whose previous work as a part-time pastor nearly generated a rejection letter.

Time to stop supporting these left-wing schools. Hire out of the conservative schools first.

Universities that are anti-Christian should be required to say so in their catalogs and other promotional literature so that parents can decide whether their child and their money should go to such institutions. Truth in advertising should apply to colleges and universities just as it does to business.
Hopefully, this survey will be published with the most egregiously bigoted universities being listed, a reverse of US New’s “Best Colleges” rating.

My guess - someone who actually believed something and attended church.

I remember law school admission committee professors admitting they had a bias against conservative applicants as not inteligent (during casual conversations.)

Maybe if evangelical christians and Mormons start doing a few honor killing,
suicide bombings and beheadings...
maybe the academics will like them as much as Muslims?

Makes perfect sense since most college and university professors are out and out Marxists, and we all know what Marx had to say about religion being the “opiate of the masses.”

Rather “intolerant” of them, wouldn’t you say?

There are only two ways to resolve conflicting beliefs. One is war and the other is reason. Take your pick.

“I suspect that 53% is a pretty low figure. I suspect that the anti-Evangelical/Conservative bias is much higher than that.”

This is a very high percentage to outright admit to this prejudice. There has to be many, many more that hold these biases but would not publicly acknowledge them.

Ah yes - pay for the privilege of being ridiculed and persecuted.

The costs here are just averages. Most schools are much higher than this.

Have to pay the six figure salaries for all those "Diversity Chairs" and benefits for their "life partners" you know.

there is no evidence that a widespread problem exists

This is what the left says about voter fraud, too - there IS a problem, but even acknowledging it would weaken their advantage.

Ask the professors if they are anti-Israel, and you will get a far larger percentage than the 3% who say there is bias against Jews...

My prediction is that a traditional University education is going the way of the MSM.

The Internet has created an unbelievable opportunity for small businesses and entrepreneurs. The need for a 4 year college education is no longer a necessity for success.

Specialty schools and intensive short term learning programs are much more valuable in getting people up to speed on what they need to know to compete.

I for one could care less about a person’s formal education when hiring. I look only at their record of achievement in the real world and their drive to make the position that they are applying a success.

Say night night lib profs.
