University Quells Freedom of Expression?...

An art exhibit by a Penn State University student against Islamic terrorism was deemed too derogatory by university officials and censored, according to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE).

The drawings in the exhibit depict a history of connections between terrorists and Muslim fundamentalists, including ties to the Nazis during World War II.

FIRE produced a five-minute documentary shedding light on the matter.

Look, I'm not advocating insulting others' religious beliefs. But, most law-abiding people would condemn terrorism; no matter what its motivation. It seems if the exhibit would have disparaged the image of Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, or any other Christian symbol, it would have been fair game.

Is it just me, or is there a double standard when it comes to Christianity? And, why?
