A thread on this recent report from @GroveCtyCollege. As a private religious college, Grove City can set its own norms. But if it wants to be a credible institution of higher learning, it also needs to reflect some of the norms of academic inquiry.… The balance between maintaining a distinctive missional identity (religious or otherwise) and honoring principles of academic freedom and intellectual inquiry is not always easy to strike. But based on this report, Grove City hasn't even come close.

I've been thinking a lot about this @JemarTisby tweet. A short thread . . . It’s worth nothing that some of Jemar’s critics insist on linking his most controversial views to Critical Race Theory rather than just engaging with his arguments.

A thread on @HawleyMO’s First Amendment tweet last night. My thoughts might also apply to some of Josh’s other legal claims (including his views on the electoral process), but since my expertise is the First Amendment, I’ll stick to that. Lots of people dragging Josh for not knowing First Amendment basics. I don’t think that’s the right response. He knows what he’s doing.

Last night, SCOTUS issued injunctive relief to houses of worship challenging NYC’s COVID-19 restrictions, the first time it has granted such relief during the pandemic. I have mixed views about the decision and early reactions to it. First, unlike @kurtlash1, I don’t see this as an “enormously important religious liberty opinion”—it is fairly fact-specific injunctive relief, and the nature and scope of pandemic orders vary greatly around the country. It’s hard to generalize much here.
