It's amazing how perverse the American left is; the policies they advocate always have an intent and effect the exact opposite of what they claim to want. The most obvious ongoing example is their plea for "tolerance" of everyone... except the majority.
Malhotra says her Christian faith compels her to speak out against homosexuality. But the Georgia Institute of Technology, where she's a senior, bans speech that puts down others because of their sexual orientation.
Malhotra sees that as an unacceptable infringement on her right to religious expression. So she's demanding that Georgia Tech revoke its tolerance policy.
With her lawsuit, the 22-year-old student joins a growing campaign to force public schools, state colleges and private workplaces to eliminate policies protecting gays and lesbians from ["]harassment["]. The religious right aims to overturn a broad range of common tolerance programs: diversity training that promotes acceptance of gays and lesbians, speech codes that ban harsh words against homosexuality, anti-discrimination policies that require college clubs to open their membership to all.
The rights of free speech and free association are explicitly mentioned in our Bill of Rights, yet the left has no problem trampling them when they disagree with the way they're exercised. (Abortion, mentioned nowhere in the Constitution and abhorrent to our forefathers, is now sacrosanct.) No public entity enforces a "conservative" speech code, and yet the right is consistantly labeled as fascist.
"The message is, you're free to worship as you like, but don't you dare talk about it outside the four walls of your church," said Stephen Crampton, chief counsel for the American Family Assn. Center for Law and Policy, which represents Christians who feel harassed.
Critics dismiss such talk as a right-wing fundraising ploy. "They're trying to develop a persecution complex," said Jeremy Gunn, director of the American Civil Liberties Union's Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief.
Wait... the ACLU actually dismissed a claim of oppression as a "persecution complex"? Whereas all the groups they do represent actually are being persecuted? Please. That's absurd. Here's another example of the ACLU Program on Freedom of Religion and Belief bashing Christianity. Here's an example of the ACLU fighting to force America to admit a highly-intolerant terrorist.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is fighting to overturn the U.S. State Department’s decision not to admit Tariq Ramadan. Please note: Ramadan's grandfather founded the Muslim Brotherhood and his father joined the family business. (The Jew-hating Brotherhood is a staunch advocate of jihad against the West). Ramadan is also a suave apologist for Islamic religious and gender apartheid and is, arguably, pro-jihad. He is, no doubt, a "moderate" compared to al-Qaeda's Bin Laden and Iran's Ahmadinejad.
Anyway, I digress; everyone knows the ACLU is a sham. The point is that the left oppresses its opponents in the name of freedom and silences them in the name of speech. Universities should have no need for speech codes, because the solution to speech you don't like isn't to shut people up; the solution to speech is more speech.
