A look at today’s college campuses from a Christian and conservative viewpoint

What is happening on college campuses today when a Christian or conservative group wants to take part in campus activities? Are their free speech rights being abridged? Are their morals being undermined?

John Ritchie
Not a week goes by where there is not a story concerning speech and activity rights on some campus somewhere – some are even on Catholic college campuses – being curbed. Conservative speakers are either not invited to speak on campus, or their events are being shut down by protesters. Are these stories overblown or do they represent a growing trend of anti-Christian and anti-traditional values being pushed by colleges today?
Helping us answer these questions on this week’s FOT will be John Ritchie, director of Traditional Family Property Student Action (TFP) who has been organizing the group’s outreach for moral values on college campuses for over ten years. TFP Student Action is a project of the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property. It was formed to resist, in the realm of ideas, the liberal, socialist and communist trends of the times and proudly affirm the positive values of tradition, family and private property.

traditional moral values on college campuses. Inspired by the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church, TFP volunteers are on the front lines of the culture war, working to restore the values of Christian civilization.
