Victory at Temple College Explained in Today’s Podcast
Last Thursday, FIRE's press release described our latest victory for freedom of expression at Temple College (Texas), where the school's president quickly reversed the censorship of a religiously themed cartoon and the Nietzsche quotation "God is dead" after receiving a letter from FIRE. In today's episode of FIREside Chats, Adam Kissel, Director of FIRE's Individual Rights Defense Program, discusses this case in further detail and calls on administrators at Lake Superior State University and Lone Star College–Tomball to follow Temple's lead by undoing the censorship of controversial posted materials on campus.
