No, Of Course There's No Bias In Academia

"A student at Los Angeles City College has filed a lawsuit against the institution after a professor called him a 'fascist b------' and told him to 'Ask God what your grade is' following the student's speech about morality. The case has been filed by the Alliance Defense Fund on behalf of Jonathan Lopez after his encounter with Professor John Matteson in a speech class."

"Intellectual freedom, freedom of expression, diversity!" Unless, of course, you're a conservative Christian. I hope Mr. Lopez sues this "professor" into bankruptcy. Story here, which dovetails very nicely with this post.

Now that Communism is gone, I guess the tables are turned and atheists, who themselves have never seen the inside of gulag or never had a grandfather killed for his beliefs, all of a sudden they are "victimized" when they merely see a cross or if they encounter free speech exercised by a religious person. They really have it hard, don’t they?

The anti-Christian crowd allows itself to indulge in the same prejudices it complains about in Christianity. But it never really was about being fair or academic, was it? It never was about an altruistic desire to raise man above superstition. It is all about feeling like your better than someone else. Its about getting a free pass to call oneself an academic, yet act like a religious bigot.

Pop Atheists write on Christian origins

When fleets of atheist charity organizations show up after the next tsunami, I'll take these "experts" more seriously.
