    I read the statement and all I saw was a lengthy advertisement for gcu and no real explanation for the cancellation.

    The people pissed were louder than the people who wanted him to speak?

    Maybe GCU did this as a PR plot so they could put out that statement.

    Love this quote in that thread, right on the money...................

    Right wing “intellectuals” need the safe space of a news media willing to coddle any opinion, no matter how barbaric or ill-informed. Outside of those nurturing waters, they shrivel and run, exposed for what they are.
