Didn't know that:

One of the attorney's for Liberty Counsel, Erik Stanley, was in my Religious Rights Constitutional Law class. I never really got to know him, but he seemed like a nice enough guy.

We are on different sides on these cultural issues -- but I sensed that we both seemed to be more than a little annoyed by the rigid PC intellectual conformity at Temple Law.

That class was taught by Stephen Mikochik, a devout Catholic and one of the few conservatives at Temple Law. The other conservatives (of which I am aware) are Jan Ting, (my Immigration Law Professor) now a media personality, and a self proclaimed "moderate" and David Post (of the Volokh Conspiracy, and one of the nation's Cyberlaw experts -- also happened to be my Intellectual Property professor) who is libertarian.

As far as I remember, the rest of the full timers were hard-Lefties.

Just a little anecdote re: how bad -- one sided -- University atmospheres can be. Professor Mikochik is blind. One smart-ass student in that class used to hold conversations across the room, via signs written on paper, with a friend. One day he held up a sign, which the whole class saw, that said F--- Jesus. Stanley was in the room. And if I remember right he was the President of the Christian law students association back then. My friend Chris, a devout Catholic, was in the room and saw it (he said he wanted to strangle the student). And of course our professor, who couldn't see it, was a devout Catholic.

The school was so PC that you couldn't even *think* of uttering something that would offend one of the sacred groups. But doing that, apparently was okay.
