"Of course, Harvard is free to admit or refuse students based on its own criteria. But I'm not the only one to think that something here is just not right. Does anyone really believe that if Kashuv had bashed conservatives in derogatory ways that Harvard would have conducted this witch hunt? That if he slurred Bible-believing Christians when he was 16, his admission would have been rescinded?" -- Dr. Michael Brown

So nice of you to allow Harvard to have its own admission criteria. You do realize that less than 5% of applicants are admitted to Harvard to begin with? You do realize that they have stringent criteria that goes well beyond academia? You do realize that all colleges are essentially reviewing the applicants based on what they did in high school -- even two years before! As for your lame comparison -- are you serious? Kashuv does not stand accused of having anything to do with liberalism or conservatism. He is being scrutinized for using racial slurs over and over again. By the way Doc, way to stand up for what is right by referring to a crack down on the use of the "N" word as a "witch Hunt." Your idol Mr. Trump would be very proud. This story is not about slurring bible believing Christians and in fact it has nothing to do with Christianity at all! Stop trying to mix your NAR offenses in with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

"Katie Pavlich tweeted, "Very curious if @Harvard will now accept and then reject all students who they convict of committing thought crimes while in high school via nonsense with friends. I already know the answer is dependent on whether those students believe in leftist gun control."

Similarly, Guy Benson opined, "The use of a disgusting word, in private, by a 16-year-old, should not be an unforgivable event. And the idea of teenage idiocy being weaponized in a retaliatory fashion like oppo research--and 'succeeding'--is frightening. Harvard's role in this is reactionary and craven." -- Dr. Michael Brown

Yes. Harvard realized they had admitted a racist and "reacted" that they should not allow it. Do not confuse this issue beloved. It is not about forgiveness. Kashuv can be forgiven and denied entry into a school that denies 95% of its applicants to begin with. What Kashuv, Brown and the like sound like is entitled. They believe that since he has apologized that he should not face any repercussions, but their standard only falls on those they align with politically. It is not opposition research either -- that is a moronic charge. The only thing more moronic is the charge of cravenness. That it is somehow cowardly for the premier institution of higher learning to deny entry to someone who less than two years ago espoused such vile and hateful animus. Not to sound like a broken record here but why is this the topic Dr. Brown latched on to today? It certainly has nothing to do with Christianity. What it does speak to however is the NAR theology and the politics of the Republican Party, to whom Dr. Brown is now beholden.

"I wonder if David Hogg, another survivor of the Parkland shooting also Harvard-bound, but the polar political opposite to Kashuv, has been subjected to the same scrutiny. In March 2018, Jack Crowe reported on the National Review that, "Seventeen-year-old gun control advocate David Hogg delivered a profanity-laced tirade on the evils of gun owners and Republican lawmakers in a recorded interview posted to YouTube on March 5. "In the interview, conducted by The Outline, the Parkland shooting survivor describes the National Rifle Association and pro-Second Amendment lawmakers as [obscenity] and accuses them of prioritizing campaign contributions over the lives of children." But rather than jeopardize his Harvard admission, this speech most likely enhanced his standing in the eyes of the leftist elites. Are there no double standards here?" -- Dr. Michael Brown

No Dr. Brown that is not a double standard. Your thinking it might be is quite alarming. Just to be clear, you believe there is no moral difference between profanity and racism. Well Dr. Brown there is. While profanity is not an acceptable behavior for believers it is not on the same moral planet as demeaning an entire race of people, solely because they are different than you. The other point Hogg makes is accurate. Politicians on the side you have aligned with have used the Parkland shooting to raise money! This is not some aspersion being cast around -- it is an established fact! Now, maybe you think that is ok, which is your right, but please do not compare it to using the "N" word 11 times in one communication while bragging about using it!

"And what of the possibility of forgiveness? What of rehabilitation and restoration, especially when the transgression was a verbal one? As Ben Shapiro wrote, "On Monday, Parkland survivor and outspoken conservative Kyle Kashuv announced that Harvard University had withdrawn his admission from the school over the revelation of racist, offensive, idiotic posts written on a private Google document with friends when he was 16 years old. Never mind that Kashuv apologized publicly for the comments; never mind that his public behavior has evinced no racism whatsoever. "Forgiveness must be withheld." If Harvard has any intellectual and moral integrity, it should apologize to Kashuv and readmit him, even on a probationary status where he can prove himself worthy." -- Dr. Michael Brown
