QUOTE OF THE DAY. In Turkey, it is illegal to suggest that an ethnic cleansing of Armenians took place in 1915. In France, it is illegal to suggest that an ethnic cleansing of Armenians did not take place in 1915. Seriously. King Banaian at St. Cloud State, who has good reasons to have the truth be told, notes that higher education ought not be getting into this game, "liberating tolerance" notwithstanding.
And if it is to happen anywhere, it cannot be on university campuses, and yet it is, whether it is against Christians, Muslims, pro-immigrationists, or even those who want to make a small joke on a campus door. If you can't even speak on a college campus, none of the rest should surprise you.
Amen.
