Why is having an Imam speak at a PUBLIC university wrong when plenty of Christian pastors and preachers speak without any problem?
We have freedom of religion in this country. UNC-CH is not Bob Jones or Liberty. An Imam has the same right to speak at a public school as any other person representing any faith. That's what it means to live in a country that is supposed to value its Constitution and the freedom of all people to believe or not to believe in whatever they want.
No one is forcing you or anyone else to attend this meeting; public funds are NOT used.
A university is supposed to be a place of exposure to different ideas and beliefs; what's wrong with that?
Colleges and universities host guest speakers all the time. Having an Imam speak is no different than having the Pope or Pat Robertson or a Druid or even George Lucas speak... big effin' deal.
Grow up people. If your faith is threatened by people of different beliefs speaking on a public non-religious campus, then your faith isn't very strong to begin with.
