Freedom of speech decreasing for Christian students
by Aaron James, Premier:
A report’s found freedom of speech at universities is continuing to decrease for Christians and others.
Spiked, an online magazine, found in its annual Free Speech University Rankings report that 63 per cent – almost two-thirds – of universities now actively censor speech, something which affects believers among other students.
It also found 30 per cent stifle speech through regulation.
Only six per cent of the 115 universities in Spiked’s study had no freedom of speech restrictions at all.
The figures have prompted the magazine to start a campaign against university censorship.
Others would defend universities who have restrictions on what can be said, arguing that it protects students from harm.
