U.S. fundamentalism

The assault on learning continues. Now, the administrators of Notre Dame University wish to ban events for fear of endorsing "values that conflict with Roman Catholicism."

Contrast that attitude with the Hebrew-Christian collaboration between two colleges in Massachusetts. The partnership assumes "interrelation with others is a source of enrichment that expands us rather than threatens."

Meanwhile, McCarthiesque efforts to shut down so-called "liberal" professors continue throughout the US.
