In December, IRCC?s attorney stated that the college had an absolute rule, which prevents R-rated movies from being shown at the college. Clearly, the ?F*****g for Jesus? skit, which involved a character simulating sex with an image of Jesus, violated the spirit of your ban. But, now I have learned that you actually have no written ban on R-rated movies as you have suggested. This policy is simply a contrived excuse for censoring The Passion of the Christ.
Recently, IRCC spokesperson Michelle Abaldo admitted to the Palm Beach Post that the college previously approved a screening of Welcome to Sarajevo, an R-rated documentary film. The admission shows that you have both illegally and immorally violated the rights of CSF.
I sincerely hope that this letter does not offend your ?higher authority,? given its lack of prior approval by Lori LaCivita and other members of your administration. I simply consider your fastidious squeamishness and private sentimentalism to be trumped by the considerations of the First Amendment.
I should also warn you that by the time you read this letter, I will have sent it to over 200,000 friends who share my concern with the erosion of First Amendment rights in higher education. Undoubtedly, hundreds, if not thousands, will be writing and calling you to express outrage at your school?s indefensible conduct.
Some of these communications may be calm; others may be R-rated. That is the price of living in a free society.
Dr. Mike S. Adams (www.DrAdams.org) called President Massey to confirm all facts in this article. Massey?s public relations spokesperson claimed that the facts of the case had been distorted by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (www.thefire.org). Dr. Adams gave the school 10 days to provide a list of those distortions. They were unable to produce any. The FIRE, on the other hand, produced independent evidence of the facts contained in this account. Dr. Adams has formed the opinion that IRCC is lying and the FIRE is telling the truth. He is pleased that the First Amendment allows him to voice his opinion.
