Over a decade ago, I went to Yale University to give a speech at the law school. While I was there, my host took me on a tour of the campus.

Recently, an angry LGBT activist (please pardon the redundancy) told me not all Christians are alike. He was in the middle of a failed attempt to argue that some Christians can actually find Biblical support for homosexuality. So he was dead wrong on the specific point he was trying to make. But like a blind squirrel occasionally finding a nut he did accidentally stumble upon a fundamental truth. Indeed, not all Christians are alike. In fact, there are three distinct categories of Christians in 21st Century America.

Sometimes in life you have to stop and admit that you have been wrong about something. I used to be a Democrat so Ive had to do that many times.

Every now and then I have to apologize for going a little bit over the top. Recently, I did that when I suggested we should eliminate all university majors ending with the word studies. Obviously, thats a little extreme.

Once established, no government office ever seems to shut down. Even if the government office somehow accomplishes its goals, someone just comes up with new reasons to keep the office doors open.

Have you ever noticed that you never see signs that say "Tolerate Diversity?" The reason for that is simple. No one wants to be tolerated.

Friends dont let friends major in anything ending in the word studies.

Its not possible for me to write about First Amendment issues and refrain from weighing in on the current Confederate flag controversy that is brewing down in South Carolina.

Dear Student Body: I am writing today for the specific purpose of recruiting a student plaintiff to sue our university over its policy of forcing students to sign a Respect Compact, which is used by the administration to punish speech that is clearly protected by the First Amendment.

The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill has just made an enormous political mistake.

In my last column, I made the case for establishing First Amendment Centers on public university campuses. I argued that such centers should focus on eight goals, four of which would be corrective measures, and four of which would be proactive measures designed to enhance respect for divergent opinions.

Eleven years ago, I gave a speech at Yale Law School. It was called The Constitutional Crisis in Higher Education. Ive have given variations of that speech on more than 80 college campuses since then. In that time period, the crisis has become substantially more serious. Now, it is time for defenders of free speech to take more aggressive measures to curb censorship on our nations campuses.

Universities need to stop giving students caps and gowns when they graduate. Instead, I recommend they give them helmets and wrap them in bubble wrap.

There is an assault on free speech in this country that is coming from the political left.

Dear Scott Burgess: I am in receipt of your message saying that I am A douche bag and an embarrassment to our university. Its been several weeks since youve written and I have been busy. But now that I have the time I wish to respond to your concerns that my weekly political column is causing embarrassment to our university and to higher education in general.

Stony Brook Universitys Graduate Queer Alliance (GQA) has managed to elevate opposition to free speech to a Zen Art.

A recent letter to the editor written by Professor Bruce McKinney shows why we cannot trust most college professors and administrators to defend free speech.

Not all pro-choice arguments were created equal. Some are much worse than others. Perhaps the worst is the claim that most pro-lifers arent consistently pro-life but are only anti-abortion.

Watching ESPN is painful these days. What used to be a good sports channel is now a platform for bad pop sociology and progressive political commentary. The commentary was in full force recently as I watched a sports commentator try to explain how the riots in Baltimore were a function of socio-economic factors.
