LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ball State students want all topics, including religion, to be discussed in classes

We are students in the Honors College here at Ball State, and we felt compelled to share with the student body at large some of our feelings regarding the recent issues of academic freedom on our campus. In elementary school we are all taught that bullying is not allowed or tolerable and we feel the need to stand up for professors in our college who are being bullied by professionals who have no tie to this academic institution. Thus, we present our beliefs about academic freedom in the collegiate environment.

In December of 2011, standup comedian Louis C.K. released his special “Live at Beacon Theatre” for direct sale on his website for $5. The format and distribution method made the files extremely easy to pirate, but people paid anyway. Within 12 days of the release, CK had made more than $1 million. Fellow comic Joe Rogan followed suit in the wake of his success.
