    The effort to normalize homosexual behavior on America’s college campuses continues apace. The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Elmhurst College in Illinois “has become the first institution to include a question about sexual orientation and gender identity on its undergraduate admissions application.” The reason? “To connect students with campus programs and services.” An applicant’s answer to the question will also help the college determine eligibility for institutional scholarships given to applicants from “underrepresented groups.” A student who declares that he consider himself “to be a member of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered) community” will be eligible for the...

    Police in suburban Chicago have arrested a Muslim college student for allegedly faking a racist attack by a masked gunman, an attack police now say never happened. Earlier this month, Safia Jilani, 19, was found by friends in the basement bathroom of the Schaible science building of Elmhurst College, claiming she was clubbed with a gun by a masked assailant. Anti-Muslim epithets were found scrawled on a nearby mirror, similar to a hate-filled graffiti that had been found on Jilani's locker only a week earlier. The college locked down the campus after the alleged attack and, according to the Chicago...

    The story was eerily familiar. A minority female assaulted at or near a college campus. Protests are held and charges are made before all the facts are in. And the result was the same: hoax. In the latest case the hoax was a supposed assault on a Muslim student at Elmhurst college in Illinois. First the initial report of this "assault" in the Chicago Sun-Times with this breathless sub-head: "HATE CRIME: Slur, Swastikas scrawled in her locker." Now the October 11 report without the slightest bit of skepticism entering reporter Dan Rozek's account: A Muslim student attacked at Elmhurst College...
