Rep LaVar Christensen was offended when I used the word 'hell' in a debate about free speech on college campuses across Utah. In a House Committee, I believe Christensen was troubled when I said LGBTQ scholars must be allowed to speak on Utah campuses.
I said, speaking of all points of view, “What the hell, just let them come, let them have their speech with the broadest possible terms.”
Christensen then introduced an amendment to remove language that describes college campuses as “uniquely positioned to expose minds to diverse ideas, people and experiences.”
Apparently, he and all but one of the committee members do not want Utah college campuses that are “uniquely positioned to expose minds to diverse ideas, people and experiences.”
Christensen's amendment passed! HA!
That is why I fight!
