Academic Freedom Applied Unequally

first_imgIn the June ICR Impact article, Dr. Jerry Bergman tells a tale of two professors.  One, a philosophy professor, has full academic freedom to dismantle the religious faith of his students (one of his converts was Michael Shermer, now editor of Skeptic Magazine).  The other, a Christian anatomy professor, was forbidden by the courts to even allude to anything of his beliefs, even with disclaimers, lest it “engender anxiety” in his students.Anybody who thinks universities stand for academic freedom, or who thinks people of faith are the biased ones, or who has a naive interpretation of “separation of church and state,” should read this shocking article.  It describes viewpoint discrimination contrary to the law, and shows how one religious position (atheism) is given preferential treatment while another (Christian faith) is suppressed to extreme and absurd lengths.    This article should be required reading for pastors and youth ministers.  Thomas Jefferson, the supposed author of the doctrine of “separation of church and state,” would be appalled; this condition of tyranny would be cause enough to start another American revolution.  Any skeptic reading this should similarly be appalled that atheism, to survive, has to be shielded from other viewpoints in what used to be the “open marketplace of ideas.”Students: Is this the situation on your campus?  Write in if you have a story to tell.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
