Why Liberty University Kicked an Anti-Trump Christian Author Off Campus

posted on November 2, 2017

For The Atlantic, Jonathan Merritt writes, “Jonathan Martin, a prominent anti-Trump Christian author, was escorted off the grounds of Liberty University by campus police officers Monday night.” Martin was invited as a guest of Johnnyswim, a band performing at the school. Liberty claims that Martin was removed for security reasons, but some remain skeptical because of Liberty’s position as a Trump ally. Merritt adds, “These kinds of crackdowns undermine Liberty’s claim to be a nationally competitive and non-partisan university with a commitment to the free exchange of ideas.”
