Help us send an alert to the President and the Provost of Patrick Henry College in support of Professor Stephen Baskerville
Professor Baskerville has been attacked by feminist and homosexual interest groups for his Faith & Reason Lecture, “Politicizing Potiphar's Wife: The New Ideology” given at Patrick Henry College, last week. While many professors are afraid to touch such a controversial topic, Professor Baskerville welcomes all opportunities to discuss and debate his research, even in the most hostile environments. But activists who are determined that his research and analysis be silenced have resorted to personal and academic attacks against Professor Baskerville and his research, calling him a liar and demonizing his stance for abstinence as the safest form of AIDs prevention.
Feminist and homosexual interest groups have launched countless similar attacks which ended the careers of professors, accelerating the purging of conservative intellectuals, research and thought from academia and think tanks.
We need to act now and let Patrick Henry College know we strongly support Dr. Baskerville and we understand that understand the enormous strategic importance of his work and its direct relevance to the future of the college and of the home-schooling base that brings most students to the college.
The definition of academic freedom is: the freedom of teachers and students to express their ideas in school without religious or political or institutional restrictions. This attempt to slander Dr. Baskerville is nothing more than an attempt to restrict his academic freedom. The attacks against Dr. Baskerville are nonstop and constant. They are also attacking the integrity of the school with an offensive assault as means of pressuring them into not defending Dr. Baskerville. .
It's up to us to send a strong message: Do not back down. Do not go silent. Do not shy away from the fight on the mega-issues that will ultimately decide so much for all of us. Go on the offensive and expand the college's commitment to the strategically decisive issues that Professor Baskerville has focused on.
[When you sign this petition, an alert is sent directly to Patrick Henry College President Dr. Graham Walker and Provost Dr. Gene Edward Veith.]
