“Traditionally, American universities have been beacons of intellectual diversity and academic freedom,” said Judge Amul Thapar in his opinion. “They have prided themselves on being forums where controversial ideas are discussed and debated. And they have tried not to stifle debate by picking sides. But Shawnee State chose a different route: It punished a professor for his speech on a hotly contested issue. And it did so despite the constitutional protections afforded by the First Amendment. The district court dismissed the professor’s free-speech and free-exercise claims. We see things differently and reverse.”
This is an important victory for free speech, personal liberty, and conscience rights. Louisiana universities take note: you may not compel anyone to violate their conscience.

LFF is shocked to learn the scope of the most recent COVID “stimulus” -- 90% of which simply could be described as a progressive wishlist. Some may call it Payola! Stay alert my friends, liberty may be at stake!
