The Ken Starr Kerfuffle

OurProvost and his close personal friend, Ken Starr, are set to have a Great Conversation at the University of MInnesota. An article has appeared in the Strib which has drawn over sixty comments - a lot for the Strib.

[Ken Starr is on record as defending Proposition 8, the ballot measure that passed in November barring same-sex marriage in California.]

What is The U Thinking?

I find it a disgrace that the University would invite this piece of human scum (Starr) to even walk on campus, let alone speak. No surprise that he is opposed to equal rights for approximately 10% of the American people.

Why is Ken Starr Being Allowed to Speak at the U?

First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

It's a university.

It's about ideas - right or wrong, sane or insane, popular or unpopular.

Thank God we live in a free country.
