Accuracy in Academia - Freedom of Speech Violations

By Editorial Staff
Published April 6, 2008

Campus Report

Freedom of speech is being redefined by university faculty and administrators to protect leftist academicians from any serious challenges of their views, according to reports collected by Accuracy in Academia.

Harvard Law Professor Randall Kennedy gave a lecture recently entitled “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Free Speech Has Got to Go!” Kennedy advocated the removal of freedom of speech on the grounds that “toleration has its limits.” Of course, those limits would be defined by his reasoning and only his.

“Can a protester abridge the rights of a Reagan or a Republican Secretary of Defense?” a student asked during the lecture. Kennedy said he would sanction the silencing of their views, as well as those of a visiting ‘contra’ from Nicaragua. When a student asked how he would feel if a visiting lecturer was beaten or killed during such a protest, Kennedy remarked, “It’s a close call, something I’d have to think deeply about.”

Another Harvard professor, mathematics Professor Vishwambhar Pati, defended the silencing of a South African speaker by writing “… there is no provision under U.S. law that guarantees uninterrupted free speech … [The South African’s] privilege to air his views from a Harvard podium is hardly a right.”

The university, which is supposed to be an arena of inquiry, testing and thinking, is becoming a haven for those who only ascribe to a certain point of view, according to an article in Accuracy in Academia’s Campus Report. The article stated that Brooklyn College Professor Robert Cheery defended the silencing of government speakers in a letter:

“…[A]cademic freedom was initiated to protect those who held anti-establishment positions. Those who represent the government have more than ample access to the media so that anyone seriously interested can easily find out their position. If opponents choose to disrupt a government representative’s talk, it reflects a protest against the government’s policies, not an abridgement of freedom of speech.”

A speech by Nicaraguan Resistance Leader Adolfo Calero was recently cancelled by a dean at Harvard University because the audience was dominated by conservatives. Prior to the speech, the same dean spearheaded a protest against Calero. Campus Report posed an interesting question at the end of their published findings:“Where is the American Civil Liberties Union and People for the American Way when you need them?”

The Abortion Matrix: Defeating Child Sacrifice and the Culture of Death (DVD)

Download the free Study Guide!

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?

This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.

Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.

The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?

As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).

Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

Ten parts, over three hours of instruction!

Running Time: 195 minutes

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
