So Elon has free speech rights but Mike Adams doesn't? Elon is free to take whatever political pose it wants and no one who disagrees is allowed to criticize them? BTW, Liberty University and Oral Roberts University take plenty of heat for their stances. I often disagree with Adams but no one with even a nodding acquanitance with his writing could sanely accuse him of being soft on his own public university.

Elon University has now ceased to be a serious institution of higher learning. In fact, it no longer deserves to be called a university in the wake of its decision to create a new Vendor Policy Study Committee. The committee, which was created by Elon's Board of Trustees in October, is part of a response to efforts to ban Chick-fil-A from the Elon campus. Its very existence shows that Elon cannot expeditiously handle simple issues concerning tolerance and inclusion. Instead, it legitimates bigotry by giving serious consideration to anti-religious zealots who would best be ignored.

Elon's 15-member committee is made up...
