Azusa Pacific University came under intense scrutiny these week after it canceled a scheduled talk by Charles Murray of the conservative American Enterprise Institute.
Dominic Lynch of Loyola University of Chicago reached out to APU for his feature story this morning at The College Fix, hoping the university would offer further explanation for its decision to put the kibosh on the notorious Bell Curve Curmudgeon, Murray.
APU officials are sticking to their original ridiculous story about how it is so very, very late in the semester, and therefore not possible to go forward with this talk (despite the fact that it was planned months in advance.)
“I can add that his visit fell the very last week of our semester when students are busy preparing for finals and graduation,” said university spokesperson Rachel White.
They are just so darn busy at Azusa.
White’s statement was very similar to the explanation offered up by the president of APU earlier this week, “Given the lateness of the semester and the full record of Dr. Murray’s scholarship, I realized we needed more time to prepare for a visit and postponed Wednesday’s conversation.”
They’ve got no time, understand?
Has nothing to do with Murray’s politics. Absolutely nothing.
