No Faith in Universities: Schools ramp up the war on traditional Christian beliefs
The Washington Times ^ | July 24, 2010 | Editorial

Universities claim to be havens for diversity, but this political correctness does not guarantee freedom of thought. Tolerance is reserved for those who stick to the liberal line. Those who deviate from the approved set of views can expect to be set upon by angry student activists and reproving academic bureaucrats.

Two recent examples of "thought crime" illustrate the academy's low level of tolerance for divergent views. The University of Illinois fired nontenured adjunct professor Ken Howell from teaching and also from a job at the on-campus Catholic center for correctly stating Catholic doctrine on homosexuality...

Twenty-four-year-old Augusta State University graduate student Jen Keeton was given the choice between attending a "gay sensitivity" training course or being expelled.

Uhh....do these unionversities get any “free money” from the gubmint? I’ll bet they do.

So do they believe in free speech?

Just like other government entities, I’ll just bet these taxpayer lubricated indoctrination centers have to follow the law of the land...including that pesky old Constitution.

It looks like some enterprising young lawyer and his buddies could retire, if they wanted, with a few well placed class action suits.

American students, what have you got to lose...(besides your Constitutional Rights)

If universities allowed more criticism of sexual misbehavior, it would expose their complicity in the self-destruction of their young charges.

While that is an ulterior motive, it's also clear that there is a de facto ban on traditional views in academia, the media, many businesses, the Democratic Party, and some sectors of the GOP.

Let's call it what it is. A lot of closeted and not-so-closeted gays have maneuvered their way into power and are secretly knifing anyone who calls them out or merely affirms morality.

Speak the truth, they take your job -- secretly, unaccountably.
