WASHINGTON — College students need to stand up and fight for their free speech rights on campus in order to end the societal trend of illiberal liberalism that is beginning to plague the American culture, a religious freedom lawyer maintained Friday.
As today's political Left has fallen into the habit of trying to stifle debate by labeling social conservative arguments as racist, bigoted and offensive, Casey Mattox, senior counsel for the Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, argued that society's infestation of intolerant liberalism can only be cured if it is first eliminated from the college campuses across the country that helped give birth to it.

"The girls were covering their faces with dirt, trying to make themselves less beautiful. But if they were caught doing that they were beaten. They were all beaten and taken away. ISIS beat us too," 15-year-old Ahmed Amin Koro told Fox News after escaping an IS training camp and fleeing to northern Iraq.
He said both male and female prisoners are treated terribly inside IS camps. Children are woken before sunrise each morning and forced to recite Islamic prayers; they are fed only with scraps, and washed with contaminated water. more >>
