Stanford Relents Somewhat Toward Pro-Traditional Marriage Society

When the Stanford Anscombe Society (SAS) — devoted to promoting discussion on marriage, the family, and sexual integrity — was denied university funding for a pro-traditional marriage conference deemed “hate speech” by the campus community, the university added insult to injury by tacking on a $5,600 security fee to post ten security personnel at the conference.

Only after SAS decried the action, calling it a “tax on free speech” and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) sent a letter to the school did Stanford “find” the funds to pay for security personnel they imposed upon the event, Campus Reform reports.

The SAS conference, entitled “Communicating Values: Marriage, Family, and Media,” was denied funding by the Graduate Student Council and the Undergraduate Senate earlier this month after a student outcry over the event’s “anti-LGBT” content. The conference, scheduled for April 5, will be funded by private donations.
