Why Does University of Oklahoma Demand Non-Muslim Students Give Up Constitutional Rights?

University administrations across the country seem completely unwilling to take strong disciplinary action unless the alleged offender happens to be accused of a "hate crime." Then the full might of academic tyranny with the power of permanently marring a student's record is used to force an often-defenseless kid to submit.

At OU that can mean signing an agreement to do away with such constitutional rights as having the opportunity to confront your accuser. Can you imagine what the ACLU would do if the U.S. government did the same thing? Read this piece from The OU Daily, paying particular attention to the details of the agreement forced on the "offending" student by the campus administration of President David Boren.
