There’s some funny business on the Texas Christian University Facebook page lately. Reacting to a TCU athletics program post, hundreds of angry comment are blasting the private university for not standing up for Christian values and not being, um, conservative.
The grousing began when the university punished Harry Vincent, a 19-year-old sophomore, for authoring controversial Tweets about a broad spectrum of racial, economic, and religious issues. He has been put on probation by university officials, given 60 days of community service, and asked to sit through diversity classes.
As the home of Brite Divinity School, a very active TCU College Republicans club, and one of the least ethnically diverse campuses in the country, the angry comments might seem curious to outside observers
