Ann Althouse disagrees. The professors, she says, were just trying to make an argument:
But doesn't that statement illustrate Will's point? "We don't like having our presuppositons challenged." We seek to impose our views upon our students, even to the point of denying them access to people that they might like to work for.
I suspect the professors might respond that its "our school." Potentially true, if a little imperious.
But the thing is that all those federal dollars belong to someone else.
