Good article on the controversy at Patrick Henry College, whose genial Christian fascism under the guise of academic freedom brings back old memories of my own alma mater.

Salient quote: "We're told this is an open dialogue, but if you engage in open dialogue, you're in trouble. It's infuriating because you're an academic and want to engage in ideas."

Thanks for the link. That kind of super-dogmatic my-way-or-no-way statement of faith is scary. In the Biblical sense, it strikes me as downright philistine.
