Academic abuse

The Young America Foundation has issued a report on Academia’s top ten abuses of 2008. Among the abuses cited are:

Yuba College in California ordered a student to stop distributing gospel booklets or face suspension.

A student at the College of Alameda in California was threatened with expulsion when she was caught praying for one of the professors.

The University of St. Thomas “censored the appearance of prominent pro-life speaker, Star Parker,” while allowing “a transgendered activist who believes God is a black lesbian.”

St. Catherine University blocked young conservatives from hosting Bay Buchanan, a popular conservative commentator “citing concerns about the school’s tax status. Those concerns, however, didn’t keep the college from hosting an anti-war radical or from promoting programs with liberal agendas.

For its Advanced Placement literature course, Deerfield High School required a book with “graphic sexual content” and dialog like “one character pleading with his sexual partner to “infect” and “make [him] bleed.”

Columbia University surveyed students about returning the Navy’s ROTC program to campus. “However, the University inexplicably closed the online poll at different times for different students and discarded more than 1,900 votes out of the 4,905 cast. One student voted 276 times. In the end, ROTC lost by 39 votes. Some people smell an anti-ROTC rat.

A professor at UC Riverside complained that having children dress up as Pilgrims and Indians was racist so the school now prohibits kids from wearing “their hand-made bonnets, headdresses and fringed vests.”

Many on the Left have become so open minded their brains have fallen out. Read the entire article at Young America Foundation.
