Petitions circulating to keep commentator Matt Walsh from speaking at Christian university

Liberals love free speech, diversity, inclusion and different opinions. Well, right up until that opinion and speech differs from what is accepted then you’re ostracized and should shut your mouth forever!

Daily Wire writer and commentator Matt Walsh is set to give a speech at Baylor University on April 9. Baylor, located in Waco, Texas, is a private Christian university, according to their website. 

Walsh’s speech, which is being put on by Baylor’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter, is titled “The War on Reality: Why the Left has set out to Redefine Life, Gender and Marriage.”

Walsh, in both his writings and podcasts, doesn’t shy away from his Christian faith. He is openly Catholic and has talked about it on multiple occasions.

But despite all of this, some don’t want the popular conservative commentator speaking at their Christian university.

Why? Because silencing others that we may disagree with is much easier than actually engaging and discussing because then we may have to defend our points of view.

The two petitions that are asking for Walsh to be banned all have to do with his view on LGTBQ issues.

From one of the petitions:

Baylor University’s conservative student group, “Baylor Young Americans for Freedom, has invited conservative blogger Matt Walsh to deliver an Anti-LGBTQ+ speech on April 9. The speech is entitled “The War On Reality: Why The Left Has Set Out To Redefine Life, Gender, And Marriage.”

This cannot be allowed to take place. Please remove this from campus events. For the benefit of all LGBTQ+ students, alumni, and future students, this harmful hate speech must be kept off of our beloved campus.

Oh, and apparently the speech is completely sold out.
