Secularists shut you up

So, do you have more freedom of speech and thought at a Christian institution of higher learning or a secular institution of higher learning?

As my friend (and ADF colleague) Jordan Lorence often says, our secular universities are really the church schools of the left. To borrow his analogy, mission statements are the new Apostle's Creed, diversity training (and increasingly the courses themselves) functions much like Sunday School, and speech codes are the equivalent of anti-blasphemy laws. In general, an outspoken atheist at a conservative Christian college is far more likely to enjoy stimulating, civil debate than is an outspoken conservative Christian at one of our elite secular colleges.”  NationalReview - Phibetacons

Possibly you knew that.  jb
