Student Newspaper Revises Guidelines to Censor Conservative Catholic Editor

John Carroll University’s student newspaper, the Carroll News, is revising its editorial guidelines in an effort to censor speech after students took offense to a conservative Catholic student editor expressing his views in the newspaper. The newspaper then released a statement chastising the editor, suggesting that “free speech” should make everybody “feel safe in its harmony,” and that the Catholic student’s views are in “direct conflict” with the mission of the Jesuit university. The editor has since resigned from his position.

Students at John Carroll University (JCU) took offense to an op-ed published in The Carroll News by editor Declan Leary, who criticized a new magazine, entitled, Loud & Proud Zine, after it had first criticized him for expressing his views about a JCU-funded drag show last semester. Leary argued that a Catholic university is not an appropriate location for hosting such events.

He is correct that a Catholic university should aspire to a higher level of discourse.

The First Amendment wasn't written to protect namby pamby or pablum speech so much; it is there to protect the unpopular speech that comes from a variety of angles and viewpoints.

Being permitted to say something is not the same as obligating others to listen, enjoy or approve of your speech. Respect the right of others to spout even though you disagree with the content. Colleges, administrators and snowflakes are missing this point by a mile when they try to shout down and stifle other points of view.
