PHOENIX — Ben Shapiro, a 35-year-old author, lawyer and public speaker, was barred from speaking on the campus of a Christian university, after he was invited by a conservative campus group.
Spencer Brown of Young America’s Foundation said in a social media post that the university administrators gave these “feeble” reasons for their “cowardly denial of Shapiro” during a meeting:
Allowing Shapiro on GCU’s campus would not be good for the school long-term.
Shapiro’s approach instigates a divisive atmosphere.
GCU wants to maintain its culture of unity, love, respect and having all student voices on campus heard.
Spencer wrote that administrators whined that Shapiro’s style is too “cut throat” and that his mere presence would be divisive.
