Liberty University stands out as a great example to the world of institutions of higher education as being open to hearing and respecting differing points of view. They invited Bernie Sanders to speak. He had the willingness and courage to speak to an audience that was not likely to agree with his point of view. The students listened and showed great respect for his willingness to speak with them.
All of those so-called institutions of higher learning that continue to protest and reject speakers with contrary points-of-view, take note of little Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. People truly seeking to learn must be willing to hear many positions, not just those that agree with their own. Shame on Rutgers and all of the other narrow-minded, close-minded “institutions of higher learning.”
