Brown and the Plural Gender-Neutral Pronouns Trend

Brown University is using “they” and “them” in place of “he” or “she” on college acceptance letters to be more “gender inclusive,” a feat which has already confused at least one female incoming student and angered her father to the point he had his daughter withdrawn from school.

“[The school] wants to make it clear that only left wing extremists are welcome at Brown,” the father said. “Fine with us—good riddance.”

Harvard Sponsors Student Guide on ‘Gender Diversity’

Harvard University is releasing a school-sponsored guide to help “fight transphobia” on campus by informing students about “gender diversity.” The guide claims that there are more than two sexes and that gender identity can change from day to day. Quite a change for a university whose original motto and seal said, “Truth (Veritas) for Christ (Christo) and the Church (Ecclesiae).”

New ABA Rule Limits Lawyer Speech

The American Bar Association (ABA) has a new rule that would subject attorneys to professional discipline for speech that another might find “derogatory,” “demeaning,” or “harmful.”

It applies not just to comments made while representing a client, but to communications made within the attorney’s law firm, and while at bar association activities, business functions, and social activities. That’s basically everywhere! It would only apply in states whose Supreme Court adopts the ABA’s rule.

Thankfully, no state Supreme Court has done so yet. But the American Bar Association model rules are what are used to teach students in law school. So give it another generation, and it will become the law.

ACLU Supports Ann Coulter . . . Sort of

Ann Coulter’s speech at the University of California at Berkeley was canceled when the sponsoring organization, Young America’s Foundation, pulled its sponsorship of the event.

Before doing so, Young America’s Foundation threatened to file a lawsuit to protect its right to bring speakers onto campus. But violent threats forced the organization to drop the defense of its legal rights.

After the event was canceled, the ACLU said it supported Coulter’s right to speak on campus. Is anyone surprised that the ACLU didn’t threaten to sue before the cancellation to protect Coulter’s right to speak? Does anyone want to bet on whether the ACLU would have sued if a conservative public college (an oxymoron) had canceled a liberal speaker’s invitation?

Fate of UMC’s Stance on Gay ‘Marriage’ at Stake

Karen Oliveto of Denver was elected bishop by the United Methodist Church’s (UMC) Western Jurisdiction last summer, even though she is a married lesbian. Within hours, her election was contested by the South Central Jurisdiction because church law bars practicing homosexuals from being church leaders.

Arguments in connection with Oliveto’s election were before the United Methodist denomination’s Judicial Council Tuesday.

The denomination’s decision will determine if openly gay men and women can be church leaders and will shape the United Methodist denomination’s future theological direction.
