George Orwell, in his book 1984, wrote about the totalitarianism that’s happening on today’s college campuses.
That’s the contention of Nancy Pearcey’s article which we offer here to round out our series on evangelicals and SOGI laws.
In her post, Gov’t Should Not Punish People for Disagreeing with State-Mandated Sexual Orthodoxy, Nancy writes,
Anyone who has read books like George Orwell’s 1984 is familiar with the technique of coerced speech. But maybe you did not expect it to be used by the American government.

Nancy highlights the case of Nicolas Meriwether, a philosophy professor at Shawnee State University who is pushing back against coerced speech. She goes on to point out that
… compelled speech is a violation of liberty. Words express a worldview.

Gender is reduced to a mental state, a question of how much you feel like a girl or a boy.
