State Lawmakers Should 'Refuse to Pay the Salaries of Professorial Propagandists'

"For a long time Christians and conservatives could say the leftism of most college professors doesn’t matter: Students weren’t paying attention," Marvin Olasky writes in his current WORLD magazine column. "This year we’ve found that many have paid attention. The evidence: Socialist Bernie Sanders overwhelmingly won the votes of millennial college graduates."
While the Sanders success is fresh in our minds, this summer is the time for Christian or conservative alumni of just about every state and secular private college or university to make a firm resolution: I will not donate to the general fund, no matter how good a season the football team has this fall. It’s also the time for state legislators to refuse to pay the salaries of professorial propagandists. ... 
We need Christian professors like Mike Adams, a University of North Carolina-Wilmington professor who became a Christian in 2000 and didn’t hide it: Turned down for a well-deserved promotion in 2006, he fought and won a seven-year legal battle. We need alumni who donate only to support particular professors. We need legislators to fund scholarships for excellent students to use at any college or university. Those who believe in Christ specifically or liberty generally should not support the enemies of both.
