Ball State University: Will It Get a Reputation as a Leading Center of Censorship?

It would seem that Ball State is heading for a very embarrassing reputation.  Its president seems to have adopted a double-standard at odds with the best science and the best philosophy.  Would they ban Thomas Nagel from teaching there?  New slogan:  "Helping students think inside the box"?

From a letter from state legislators:
We are disturbed by reports that while you restrict faculty speech on intelligent design, BSU authorized a seminar that teaches "Science Must Destroy Religion." Your policy banning professors from expressing their views on intelligent design raises many troubling questions. One of the most important is: Does the policy forbid science professors from explaining either their support or rejection of intelligent design in answer to student questions about intelligent design in class?
