So much for tolerance on college campuses, huh?

Leaders of The Arbiter campus newspaper rejected a request by a creationist group to purchase ad space in its pages, stating “many of their claims could be construed as overtly belligerent to our readership.”

Belligerent – defined as “hostile and aggressive” – was the word used by The Arbiter to describe the views behind a proposed ad meant promote an event at Boise State University billed as a creation versus evolution debate, asking “God vs. Science? Or does science actually side with Scripture?”
