Tonight is the men’s College Basketball Championship but if one commentator at USA Today had her way, Oral Roberts University—an underdog that made a great run up to the Sweet Sixteen—wouldn’t have been allowed to participate in the first place. Hemal Jhaveri said Oral Roberts is prejudiced and moral regressive. She also said their policies were “wildly out of line with modern society and the basic values of human decency.” So what are these values you might ask? Oral Roberts teaches that marriage is between a man and woman, that God makes gender as male and female, and that there are moral boundaries for human sexuality. Jhaveri was the Diversity and Inclusion editor, which is espouses tolerance but her to cancel Oral Roberts put her own intolerance and bigotry on full display.
