On Campus Diversity & Freedom

Greg Lukianoff of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education has a fascinating, and I think compelling, article up over at RealClearReligion.

The article caught my eye, of course, because it concerns Liberty University, founded by Rev. Jerry Falwell. But, Lukianoff takes a very interesting approach to the issue, noting the subtle and not-so-subtle ways liberal universities like the Ivy's discriminate against certain types of speech, versus the approach of a school like Liberty, and, most interestingly, the conflicting demands on a school like Georgetown.

I do not know Lukianoff but this is good stuff for anyone who, like me, is tired of some liberals neglecting their own commitment to diversity the second that commitment is extended to more conservative voices.
