Got Religious News? New Department of Education Speech Codes Affect Catholic Colleges Too !

The Department of Education new guidelines on speech and other matters that effect First amendment issues and due process has been getting some news. That is progress.

However I am dismayed that on the religious college front there seems to be little concern or coverage at all in comparison. Despite the fact that one of the main concerns of these laws is that it could curtail a good bit of political ( and yes that includes religious ) speech.

I contacted the head of F.I.R.E. that is on the front lines of this issue and h einformed me only FOUR colleges in the USA would not be impacted by these new regulations. If your school gets any sort of Fed funding or its students take out students loans well it is like everyone else.

There seems to be a impressions that secular and religious private universities don't have a dog in this fight. That is not tue
