    Apologetics on the Campus of Wayne State University

    Students at Wayne State who want to learn to defend their faith more effectively are involved with Ratio Christi, a student critical thinking club. Events under consideration include panel discussions with non-Christian (e.g., students who identify as atheist, secular, Muslim, agnostic, ect.), apologetics training workshops, and informal discussions about such topics as whether God exists, whether Jesus resurrected from the dead, and the problems of evil and suffering in the world (theodicy).

    Students meet informally at "Brainstorming Breakfast" (breakfast provided) from time to time to discuss and plan apologetics initiatives on campus.

    If you are interested in attending a Brainstorming Breakfast or become involved in apologetics on Wayne State's campus, contact Ratio Christi by sending an email to WSU@RatioChristi.org.

    Latest Legatus Christi Recipient Chosen!

    The Legatus Christi award was made in memory of Jordan slusher, a UNC Charlotte student who died do to a hiking accident in 2012. Jordan was a leader in the Ratio Christi chapter at his university. His motto was "win the person, not the argument". Ratio Christi awards this to other students like Jordan.

    Ratio Christi Chapter Sues Kennesaw State Univ. for Sending Pro-life Display to Tiny 'Speech Zone'

    PRESS RELEASE
    Contact: ADF Media Relations, 480-444–0020, www.adfmedia.org/home/connect

    INDIAN TRAIL, N.C., Feb. 22, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ -- Ratio Christi Campus Apologetics Alliance's chapter at Kennesaw State University filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday (February 20, 2018) to challenge policies that officials used to relegate its pro-life display to a "speech zone" that makes up less than 0.08 percent of the 405-acre campus.

    "Public universities are supposed to be the marketplace of ideas, where all ideas are welcome, not just those that university bureaucrats consider acceptable," said Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Travis Barham, one of the attorneys representing Ratio Christi. "Kennesaw State allows officials to quarantine any student speech they deem 'controversial'—including a pro-life display—to a tiny, difficult-to-access part of campus. But the First Amendment prohibits universities from restricting where students can speak."
