The line from Tom Lehrer's song about Harvard comes to mind, "Ivy covered professors in Ivy covered halls." Our institutions of higher indoctrination seek only to be insulated from opposing ideas. It is the very antithesis of true learning. That our colleges and universities have become nothing more than propaganda mills or cosseted re-education gulags , should be a matter of critical concern to all Americans of good conscience.
Before making such an announcement, young Lofven would be wise to sit through Mr. Netanyahu's Palestinian 101 class. That way he could at least make an informed decision.

There is not a single college or university in this nation that should not welcome Miss Hirsi Ali with open arms. First as a hero, and the as speaker with a message that is important for Americans to hear. Less than that is cowardice of the first order.

Mix young men and women in the same dorms together, with lots of beds handy. Sprinkle liberally with alcohol and drugs. Add a large dollop of regular professorial instruction that all authority and mores of their culture should be resisted, and stir! What could possibly go wrong?
It always smacks of arrogance and hubris when our government, faced with an issue like this, goes into their, "Keeping it moving folks, nothing to see here," routine. Especially since we have rock hard proof that lies are the stock and trade of the current administration. Officials totally blew the patient in Texas, and now they're looking at the possibility of multiple exposures. The Feds have it all under control? I don't think so.

According to the article, the lecture was given to a CC Chapter. In other words, the speaker was preaching to the choir, carrying coals to Newcastle, selling oil to Arabs, whatever turn of phrase you care to use. It should not have been divisive in any way. It should have been informative, for opportunities such as the ones we've discussed above. And for walking in accordance with what Paul wrote in 1 Cor. 9:22 . If you have believers in your CC Chapter that still believe abortion is fine. all the more important that they hear the truth.

The point is, you can try a dodge like, "Okay, I hear that you want to discuss abortion. But perhaps we set that aside for a moment to discuss a more critical issue." That may work, but sometimes you just have to meet people where they are. If someone asks, "Does the Bible really say abortion is wrong, Where?" Do you still try to dodge, or do you open the Word of Life, talk about abortion from God's point of view, and see where that may take you. Why limit your options.

I'm afraid that your explanation/excuse if deeply flawed. The Apostle Paul wrote in Acts 20:27 that he taught the whole counsel of God. Certainly the concept of abortion, life and death, would fall under that umbrella. In addition, Paul wrote in 1 Cor. 9:22 that he became all things to all men so that by all means he might win some. As Mike Adams pointed out, abortion is a serious issue on college campuses. It's not unreasonable to thing that it's a conversation the might open the door to "lead people who do not know Christ into a life changing relationship with Him." Therefore, having a biblical knowledge of that critical issue would seem valuable indeed.
Somebody in the Obama administration that accepts responsibility for their mistakes. What a novelty!
The simple facts that teachers unions force under performing schools to stay open in order to pad their roles reveals the heart of their intent. Student achievement is way down their list of their goals. Teacher job security and drawing public tax coffers dry like giant leeches is at the top. If teachers unions made cars, they would be so awful no one would buy them.

That's a tough call because Elizabeth Warren seems to be the uber-left flavor of the month right now. It's hard to see two MA Democrats on the ticket at the same time. But Patrick could certainly be Plan B if Warren backs out.
