Editor's note: Dr. Adams is speaking March 19, 6:30 pm at UNC-Charlotte in Fretwell Hall, Room 113.Tickets are $100 for socialists and $100 for Democrats as they're now the same thing.
I am pleased to finally be able to write a column praising a decision by the administrators at my university. Recently, the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) decided to put up an “art” display featuring pictures of naked females with captions below them telling stories about their lives. The problem was that some of the females were minors. Recognizing that posting a picture of a naked 12 year-old girl is not protected by academic freedom, the university administration removed the illegal pictures.
There is something very wrong with a Women’s Resource Center that posts pictures of nude women with fake breasts in our library with captions arguing that they are grotesque and perverted. But there is something even more disturbing about their subsequent decision to post pictures of naked children arguing that they are not in any way grotesque or perverted.
I think the UNC-Wilmington administration has finally realized that the Interim Director of the WRC is simply a complete embarrassment to the university and must be monitored in order to protect the university from potential legal liability. Indeed, this is what happens when leftist extremists start to implement their own religion of moral relativism on our nation’s campuses. Pretty soon, they’re at a loss to find an objective basis for judging anything. And they become so arrogant that the argument “it’s illegal” is irrelevant.
Given that leftist relativist groupthink is producing such poor decisions at my university I believe it is time to consider implementing a version of the Fairness Doctrine. Given my university’s recent experiment with common sense and sanity, I think we would be a great place to start what could be a nationwide trend. Plus, we are a public university which, like the public airwaves, should not be dominated by speech from one side of the political spectrum.
We could begin implementing the Fairness Doctrine at my school by having Dr. Frank Turek speak to the Sociology of Religion class that is being offered next fall. Students in that class are being asked to read texts by Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens. In these books, the authors explain why they hate a God that doesn’t exist. Dr. Turek could give a lecture explaining why he loves a God that does exist.
