University President to Students: 'This is Not a Day Care!'

University President to Students: 'This is Not a Day Care!' Read Transcript

College campuses used to be strongholds of free speech

and exchanging ideas.

But today, all that's changed.

Students now demand universities provide

safe spaces to protect them from ideas that

may cause them emotional harm.

They want to be shielded from ideas or opinions

they find offensive, going so far as

to request trigger warnings to help them avoid hearing,

seeing, or reading anything that might upset them.

This thinking has led to some college guest speakers being

protested, harassed, and even barred from campuses

because they support views some students don't like.

It's also caught the attention of Congress.

Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro and comedian Adam

Carolla recently testified about what some

call the snowflake rebellion.

All of our views should be judged on their merits,

not on the color or sex or sexual orientation

of the speaker.

And those views should never be banned on the grounds

that they offend someone.

Even Christian colleges are not immune.

Dr. Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University

writes about it in a new book, Not a Daycare,

The Devastating Consequences of Abandoning Truth.
