    It appears Georgia Gwinnett College requires students to be rather tight lipped about religion. Alliance Defending Freedom is contesting that.

    Speech that "listeners find ... offensive or discomforting” ... “which disturbs the peace and/or comfort of person(s)" is likely to be the speech most likely in need of the guarantee provided by the First Amendment.

    Someone orating that 'water is wet' or 'two plus two equals four' is unlikely to send the close minded into paroxysms of weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    Tolerance and inclusiveness don't seem to mean what they did a few generations ago on college campuses.

    Tolerance and Inclusion be d*nmed - how about free speech, open exchange of ideas, expanding ones horizons, and learning to ignore those with whom we disagree?
