WorldNetDaily: More on the OSU/Marketing of Evil flap

The headline from WorldNetDaily is, surprisingly, misleading. Ohio State's faculty has not, as far as I can tell, voted to remove The Marketing of Evil from the university library system. But their investigation of librarian Scott Savage continues, even though the Alliance Defense Fund has already sent a cease-and-desist letter. So to court they will likely go, if I know the ADF.

To recap: A committee on reading requirements for freshmen entertained several recommendations. After many of his colleagues recommended multiple left-leaning books, including many written (or, I daresay, ghost-written) by former President James Earl Carter, Jr., Mr. Savage recommended The Marketing of Evil and three other conservative titles. One of these other three was a title that I would have thought would have rankled his colleagues worst of all: The Professors, by David Horowitz. That work names the names of those university professors whom Horowitz holds most responsible for destroying this country's culture and institutions.

Add to it that Mr. Savage is a Quaker, one who therefore has a conscientious objection to the use of force or violence even in self-protection. That anyone would take anything he says as a threat is beyond ludicrous, as ADF's legal team makes clear.
