And I regard that as very good news. Last week, Georgia Tech dropped its speech code as part of a settlement in a lawsuit brought against them by the Alliance Defense Fund (and yes, I will agree with them completely on this one despite my opposition to them in most cases). The same thing happened back in May at Penn State, also in response to a lawsuit filed by the ADF. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) does excellent work in this area, pressuring colleges and universities to drop their unconstitutional speech codes and encourage a freewheeling exchange of ideas on campus. Such codes are too often used to blunt political debate over constitutional issues in the name of protecting favored groups from criticism and insult. In many such battles, I am firmly on the side of those groups against predominately conservative opinion, particularly when it comes to gay rights. I will join them in battling against those ideas, but I will not join them in trying to censor those ideas.
