Bill Donohue comments on the decision by Tennessee lawmakers to deny funding to the University of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion:
Last December, I wrote to all Tennessee lawmakers asking them to “critically assess the policies of the University of Tennessee’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion that touch on religion and free speech issues.” I did so following politically correct policies that sought to neuter Christmas celebrations on the campus.
This same office raised new concerns when it promoted Sex Week on the campus.
The lawmakers are to be commended for acting responsibly. It is our hope that other state lawmakers take note and act accordingly.
