    Andrew Cash, a former student at Missouri State University, is suing the institution over his dismissal from a graduate program in counseling. Cash has retained counsel from the Thomas More Society, a national public interest law firm, and has filed a federal civil rights complaint against the Governors of Missouri State University. Cash and his lawyers contend that he was dismissed from the university’s Master’s program in counseling because he expressed concern over counseling same-sex couples due to his religious convictions. In an exclusive interview, Spero News interviewed attorney Tom Olp of the Thomas More Society, which is representing Cash....

    EAST LANSING – The Associated Builders and Contractors of Michigan is demanding that Michigan State University cancel its Building Trades Academy program on the grounds that it encourages "organizing in non-union construction companies," while a state legislative committee has struck funds from the university's budget for 2014-2015. "Such activities lack legitimacy when performed by an academic institution," Chris Fisher, president of Michigan chapter of ABC, said in a statement. "Would the university support a similar program geared toward union busting?" But MSU spokesman Kent Cassella said that the program, which began in May 2013, is not paid for by taxpayer...

    While much of the nation’s crops withered under last year’s punishing drought, Michigan State University researchers dramatically increased corn and vegetable production on test farms using revolutionary new water-saving membranes. The subsurface water retention technology process was developed by Alvin Smucker, MSU professor of soil biophysics and MSU AgBioResearch scientist. His invention uses contoured, engineered films, strategically placed at various depths below a plant’s root zone to retain soil water. Proper spacing also permits internal drainage during excess rainfall and provides space for root growth. “This technology has the potential to change lives and regional landscapes domestically and internationally where...

    EAST LANSING, Mich. — Two teams of Michigan State University researchers – one working at a medieval burial site in Albania, the other at a DNA lab in East Lansing – have shown how modern science can unlock the mysteries of the past. The scientists are the first to confirm the existence of brucellosis, an infectious disease still prevalent today, in ancient skeletal remains. The findings, which appear in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, suggest brucellosis has been endemic to Albania since at least the Middle Ages. Although rare in the United States, brucellosis remains a major problem in...

    EAST LANSING, Mich. — There’s something beyond plain old ignorance that motivates Americans to believe President Obama is a Muslim, according to a first-of-its-kind study of smear campaigns led by a Michigan State University psychologist. The research by Spee Kosloff and colleagues suggests people are most likely to accept such falsehoods, both consciously and unconsciously, when subtle clues remind them of ways in which Obama is different from them, whether because of race, social class or other ideological differences. These judgments, Kosloff argues, are irrational. He also suggests they are fueled by an “irresponsible” media culture that allows political pundits...

    Michigan State Ends Controversial Thought Reform Program FIRE Press Release EAST LANSING, Mich., May 3, 2007—After months of public pressure, Michigan State University (MSU) has ended its controversial Student Accountability in Community (SAC) program. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) urged MSU to end the SAC program because it forced students whose speech or behavior was deemed unacceptable to undergo ideological reeducation, or else face effective expulsion. “Until now, engaging in free speech at MSU could have resulted in mandatory pseudo-psychological counseling or the end of a student’s academic career,” FIRE President Greg Lukianoff said. “We’re overjoyed to...

    EAST LANSING -- Mark Dantonio will be Michigan State's next football coach. He was approved unanimously Monday morning by Michigan State's Board of Trustees. MSU President Lou Anna Simon recommended Dantonio at a special, media-friendly board meeting at the Clara Bell Smith Academic Center. In a scene straight out of reality TV, the board and Simon sat at a table on the auditorium stage, with microphones attached, while a large media audience watched from nearby. Dantonio, currently Cincinnati's head coach, "best matched all (the) characteristics and requirements" MSU sought, Simon said.

    Montana State University has been bombarded with national media queries and a few nasty e-mail messages ever since the FBI issued an alert for 11 Egyptian students who failed to show up for a cultural exchange program in Bozeman. "It got pretty crazy" when the story broke Tuesday, MSU spokeswoman Cathy Conover said. The news story has been listed on Internet blogs like the Drudge Report and the Web site of syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin (author of "Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores" and "In Defense of Internment"). National reporters have been...
  • Human Fetus A "Parasite" - The State News, MI State U

    What are they teaching our children at MSU in East Lansing, Michigan? It appears to be that a human fetus is no different than a "tapeworm" or a "parasitical creature". They are also teaching that a newspaper is the proper place for devaluing human life as a recent article by Shane Krouse in The State News proves. Shane Krouse, a sophomore and State News columnist, directly and unequivocally equates the human fetus, which he rather unscientifically describes as "a wad of cells", to parasites. He doesn’t stop with parasites, but goes much further than that, of course, as he lambastes...

    Conservative group sues MSU for offering health insurance to partners of homosexual workers LANSING — A conservative group on Wednesday sued to stop Michigan State University from offering health insurance to the partners of gay workers and said the school is violating a 2004 amendment to the state constitution. The American Family Association of Michigan filed the lawsuit in Ingham County Circuit Court and hopes to get a ruling setting a precedent that would block domestic partner benefits at other state universities. Schools that provide benefits to gay couples include the University of Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Northern Michigan,...

    In their quest for support for the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed, professors and administrators at state universities have traditionally looked at Republicans with disdain and pinned their hopes on elected Democrats. But now, even some of their traditional partisan angels are becoming skeptical of their claims of imminent need. “At the last full Board of Regents meeting in Bozeman in November of 2005, the Board approved substantial salary increases for the commissioner, the two presidents and the four chancellors in order to bring them in line with those salaries made by top administrators in neighboring states,” Montana...

    Note referred to group as 'brutal'The Muslim Students' Association at Michigan State University is calling for a public reprimand of a mechanical engineering professor who sent the group an e-mail calling them "dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems." The e-mail, sent by professor Indrek Sven Wichman on Feb. 28 from his university account, was a sharply worded criticism of Muslim protests against the Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad and of Muslim cultures in general. In it, according to a copy provided by the Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Wichman told the group he hoped that...
