Some SMU Faculty May Need a Refresher Course on What Their University Stands For

A helpful correspondent directed us to the following statement on the website of Southern Methodist University, the location of the upcoming Darwin v. Design conference this Friday and Saturday:

Founded in 1911 by what is now The United Methodist Church, SMU opened in 1915 with support from Dallas leaders. The University is nonsectarian in its teaching and committed to freedom of inquiry. (emphasis added)

SMU faculty who want the Darwin v. Design conference banned from their campus might benefit from re-reading--and heeding--this statement.
