Mike Adams (Townhall.com): Intolerance of the "Tolerant"
In his article in Townhall.com (March 15, 2012), Open Doors and Closed Minds, professor Mike Adams discusses the recent protest at Ohio University when Dr. Frank Turek spoke for the Ratio Christi club. LGBT groups on campus tried to have the lecture defunded. Though the student led appropriations committee did not defund the talk they apologized to the LGBT group. Adams wryly suggests the apology may have went something like this:
We are truly sorry that you had to endure the thought that someone was present somewhere on campus – even for a couple of hours – who did not share your views on a subject he was not discussing.
An apology for something Turek was NOT discussing? Correct. His lecture was on the logical foundations of Christianity, not homosexuality. Should it have mattered even if that was the topic? Read Adam's article to find out.

Apologists have two specific purposes, Schenker said: "To strengthen the faith of the believers, but also to reach out to skeptics and agnostics." Ratio Christi is committed to educating people in apologetics so that they can have an educated conversation, Schenker said.
