Something Not Seen on Liberal Blogs : Liberal Campuses Run Amok

NO CHRISTIAN CROSS IN WILLIAM and MARY'S CHAPEL -- the college president, Gene Nichol, took out the cross in Wren Chapel, a chapel dating to 1699. He said it "sends an unmistakable message" that is "contrary to the best values of the College."

SEX WORKER ART SHOW --"A Celebration of Whore Culture" ALSO at Wm. & Mary College, funded by tax dollars. 100 students were REQUIRED to attend the show for their classes. The President's rationale, "It's not the practice and province of universities to censor or cancel performances because they are controversial."

Oh? then why remove a cross from a chapel? That WAS the province of the university? Retaining a cross as part of the history of a school's religious tradition going back to 1699 is deemed contrary to the school's values? But this school cannot find any good values on the basis of which to reject such an art show???

U. OF DELAWARE REQUIRES 7000 DORM STUDENTS TO HAVE THEIR THOUGHTS REFORMED -- The RA's led these sessions to help students achieve "competencies" to reach the education goal of "citizenship." Their training sessions for RA's included this statement, "A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. 'The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the U.S., regardless of class, gender, religion, culture, or sexuality. By this definition, people of color cannot be racists.'"

U. of Wisconsin-Madison and Edgewood College prof Kevin Barrett teaches that the 9/11 attacks were likely orchestrated by the U.S. gov't. to start a war with radical Islam. The pres of the Board of Regents, David Walsh, says Barrett's "academic freedom" must be protected.

There oughtta be a law against such nonsense on college campuses --which have federal funding.
