Campuses Are Liberal Prisons: Liberals get cheered, Conservatives get jeered or fired.

Campuses Are Liberal Prisons: Liberals get cheered, Conservatives get jeered or fired.

In the Washinton Times, Bill Donohue of the Catholic League says

".......Quite frankly, diversity of speech when it comes to matters sexual is the least tolerated on campus, whether it be challenging the prevailing wisdom on nature-based explanations for gender inequality, same-sex marriage or homosexuality. When the source of such views is religious, the case for censorship is secured. And no religion offends the dons of diversity more than Roman Catholicism.

Those who think this an exaggeration need to ask themselves how many times they can remember when a left-wing speaker was denied the right to express himself on campus.

Leftists are almost never shouted down, hissed at or otherwise censored, and everyone knows it; it's always conservatives who are the victims of such tactics. Want hard evidence?
