FreeBYU featured on “A Thoughtful Faith” Podcast

Gina Colvin interviewed FreeBYU director Brad Levin in an hour-long episode entitled, Religious Freedom and Belief at BYU.

“Under BYU’s existing policies, LDS students who change their personal beliefs about God are expelled from school, evicted from their homes, and fired from their jobs.  There is no similar policy for non-LDS students at BYU: a Catholic may convert to Mormonism, but a Mormon may not convert to Catholicism.

This policy creates a coercive environment in which LDS students cannot honestly evaluate their personal faith without risking severe disruption to their lives.

As parents, students, professors, and alumni of BYU, we feel that this policy is at odds with the principles of religious freedom espoused by both the University and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.”

FreeBYU was also mentioned in a recent Wheat & Tares article entitled Tattle Tale Culture.
