Tolerance is the buzzword of the modern university. Any and all ideas, save one, must be respected, no matter how offensive or controversial. The one glaring exception is Christianity. On college campuses across this great land, Christians are regularly ridiculed and silenced. Janis Price was a well respected administrator and instructor in DePauw University's education department for thirteen years. In 2001, she was severely reprimanded by the university. Her alleged crime was permitting students to read education related materials printed by a Christian organization. Although no assignment was made, one student was offended and immediately complained to the university. Mrs. Price was severely punished for offending this student. Knowing that she had been wronged, she appealed her punishment through proper university channels. Finding no relief there, she was forced to file a lawsuit. What followed was a wildly unpredictable ride through Indiana's legal system. Tolerating the Intolerable chronicles Janis Price's career at DePauw University, the events leading up to her demotion, and the legal history of the case. Most importantly, it expounds several possible motives for the egregious behavior of DePauw University officials toward Mrs. Price. This case has garnered international attention from sources ranging from columnist and author David Limbaugh to the American Family Association Journal and the "700 Club." Tolerating the Intolerable represents one tiny piece of a vast and shamefully Christophobic trend on American college campuses. It is a must read for anyone concerned with the nation's dangerous slide into secularism.
