NYT: A Confession of Liberal Intolerance

if you have read my blog over the years, you have pretty much seen all of this, but NOT from the "Gray Lady" herself! Sometimes getting your ass kicked can cause you to look away from your navel for just a bit as it seems to have in this case.

Academia has a heavy bias against conservatives and Christians! Talk about "news at 11"!

Universities are the bedrock of progressive values, but the one kind of diversity that universities disregard is ideological and religious. We’re fine with people who don’t look like us, as long as they think like us. 
O.K., that’s a little harsh. But consider George Yancey, a sociologist who is black and evangelical. 
“Outside of academia I faced more problems as a black,” he told me. “But inside academia I face more problems as a Christian, and it is not even close.”
"As long as they think like us"? Well yes, that is harsh -- the university will TOTALLY embrace any whacked out idea of post-modernism, intersectional feminism,  Afro-space alien studies, Zombie culture, etc, but it IS absolutely correct that it will reject "conservative Christian" like a turd in the punchbowl!

It’s also liberal poppycock that there aren’t smart conservatives or evangelicals. Richard Posner is a more-or-less conservative who is the most cited legal scholar of all time. With her experience and intellect, Condoleezza Rice would enhance any political science department. Francis Collins is an evangelical Christian and famed geneticist who has led the Human Genome Project and the National Institutes of Health. And if you’re saying that conservatives may be tolerable, but evangelical Christians aren’t — well, are you really saying you would have discriminated against the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.?
It's worth the read, and interesting to see the the left look away from their navels a bit while their  head is spinning -- they will likely be right back to "lock the idiots all up" mode in a couple weeks!
