Most Questionable Academic Causes

, Malcolm A. Kline, Leave a comment

This is a hard list to narrow down, particularly since many of them wind up as courses. Yet and still, here are, we believe, some very viable nominees:

1.      Prisoners’ rights

2.      Repealing the U. S. military ban on homosexuality among members, regardless of whether straight soldiers reenlist

3.      Amnesty for illegal aliens at a time of escalating violence on the southern border

4.      Insisting that global warming is a fact rather than an open scientific question, especially in the wake of Climategate.

5.      Pushing for green jobs when evidence indicates two positions will be lost for every environmentally correct post gained.
