I know that it must be extremely tough to be a president of a college or university, but what's happening in higher education institutions around the country illustrates that some of them could use more courage. One of them in particular.
The story started innocently enough. Talented pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson was invited to give the commencement address at Emory University. He accepted. News of Carson's questioning of strict Darwinian evolution became known. The science department decided to protest his invitation. The president, James W. Wagner, caved into their demands and ordered extensive background checks from now on into whether its would-be speakers questioned naturalism. Read here, here, and here.
But the story doesn't end badly. Ben Carson shows the students and faculty what true grace looks like.
I encourage you to watch the whole speech, but his comments specifically concerning the brouhaha is at 3:05.
