Diversity, freedom of expression, and equal protection for all – It’s as American as you can get, and it has always been the ultimate goal of all American battles. And yet that conflicts with Goshen College’s “core values”:

Goshen College, a Mennonite school in Indiana, has become a target of public outrage over its decision to ban the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at sporting events because it conflicts with the school’s core values.“We recognize that some people may not be satisfied with this decision, but we believe it is the right one for Goshen College,” Ricky Stiffney, chairman of the college’s board of directors, said in a written statement. “The board has a diversity of views on this issue as reflected through the process of considering the anthem.”

Do their “core values” include defending freedom and liberty or blind submission? Why are they even in America? How can they justify enjoying America’s religious freedoms that were acquired by “violence” and “battles”?
