Kent State University advertised a debate between the difference between ‘hate speech’ and ‘free speech’ (hint: it’s all free speech). On their advertisement they claimed that “You Need Jesus.” could be considered ‘hate speech’ along with “No More Gays,” “Women Need To Serve Their Man” and “Build a Wall.”
Jared Small, president of the Campus Ministry International student organization, spoke out against the advertisement. “The university should apologize because it appears to be targeted toward one political and religious side,” he wrote.
“They could have included hate speech against president Trump or hate speech against Christians as examples. In my opinion, free speech protects hate speech to an extent. However, the university appears to show a bias against Christians and conservatives,” said Small.
However, Jacob Brown president of the Catholic Student Association doesn’t think they need to apologize.
“Do I think it constitutes hate speech? No. Should the university apologize? No. Nobody wants to be told ‘You’re going to hell,’” Brown said.
“As a leader of a religious student organization, I put my face in my palm every time I see this [religious] protest,” said Brown. Do you think the university would call “Don’t take off your Hijab” hate speech? No way.
