Kennesaw State U. - itching for a lawsuit 'trifecta'?

free-speech zone (stop sign shape)Conservatives and Christians are under fire at a taxpayer-supported college in Georgia – and it's gotten so bad the state legislature is stepping in.

Pro-life students at Kennesaw State University had to keep their displays within a small "free-speech zone" that comprised less than 0.1% of the 405-acre campus. Alliance Defending Freedom is suing the school over that one. The school also is charging the College Republicans a "security fee" and making the group jump through bureaucratic hoops that no other campus group has to just to have a speaker come to speak. That prompted ADF lawsuit #2.

Then, to top it off, a Kennesaw class reportedly forced Caucasian students to "confess" their white privilege on video in order to get a grade. No word yet if that will garner another lawsuit.

And then there's the hazing that conservative Kennesaw students like Mara Davis go through. A teacher required her to voice her opinion about how many genders there were. Everyone else said there were fifty-some. Davis answered as she'd been raised – that there were two.

Kennesaw State UniversityShe recently told her story to Georgia lawmakers who have become so concerned they've called hearings on Kennesaw State.

"My teacher proceeded to tell me I was wrong and decided it would be best for me to be kicked out of class for the remainder of the day," Davis shared. "As I was grabbing my backpack, phone, and keys, a student in the class proceeded to throw a plastic disposable water bottle at me."

Davis also told them of being forced to argue for the pro-abortion side of a debate when the teacher knew full-well she's strongly pro-life.

"She told me I could either debate for the pro-choice side or receive a zero for the assignment," the student said. "In the rubric, it says to come to her if we have any concerns. When I told her this, she said – and I quote – 'That only applies to the other students.'"

Victoria Thompson, president of the College Republicans at Kennesaw State, has experienced the backlash, too.

"They claim to be so accepting and [claim] they're like the party of the people, yet they're very closed-minded," says Thompson. "And if you share your opinion that doesn't align with theirs, they get mad and they are rude and they are mean and they are vulgar with their words."

A caller to a recent airing of the Todd Starnes Radio Show reported that her daughter – a student at Kennesaw – was required to attend a one-man play that included Trump-bashing, profane tirades against Republicans, and explicit sex talk.
