This was no doubt because of the actions of some folks/organizations getting upset because she’s critical of certain aspects of religion, specifically Islam. What’s worse about all of this is that did Brandeis even know who they were giving this degree to? Did they even bother to research her work and activism AHEAD of time before they made their announcement? This is why the university’s decision was nothing more than ridiculous, to say the least, and many people especially in the atheist community and elsewhere (even Muslims who oppose extreme actions) should be upset over their cave in to the demands of the easily upset folks who don’t want their ideas scrutinized by someone brave like Hirsi Ali.<br /> <br /> References/Sources:<br /> Statement from Brandeis University<br /> <a href="http://www.brandeis.edu/now/2014/april/commencementupdate.html">http://www.brandeis.edu/now/2014/april/commencementupdate.html</a><br /> New York Times – “Brandeis Cancels Plan to Give Honorary Degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Critic of Islam”<br /> <a href="http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/04/09/us/brandeis-cancels-plan-to-give-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali-a-critic-of-islam.html?referrer">http://mobile.nytimes.com/2014/04/09/us/brandeis-cancels-plan-to-give-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali-a-critic-of-islam.html?referrer</a><br /> “Protest Brandeis University’s withdrawal of honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali”<br /> <a href="http://ffrf.org/news/action/item/20339-protest-brandeis-universitys-withdrawal-of-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali">http://ffrf.org/news/action/item/20339-protest-brandeis-universitys-withdrawal-of-honorary-degree-to-ayaan-hirsi-ali</a><br /> Dave Silverman – “Open Letter to Fred Lawrence, Brandeis University President”<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/notes/dave-silverman/open-letter-to-fred-lawrence-brandeis-university-president/730873826933098">https://www.facebook.com/notes/dave-silverman/open-letter-to-fred-lawrence-brandeis-university-president/730873826933098</a><br /> Ayaan Hirsi Ali: ‘They Simply Wanted Me to be Silenced’<br /> <a href="http://time.com/56111/ayaan-hirsi-ali-they-simply-wanted-me-to-be-silenced/">http://time.com/56111/ayaan-hirsi-ali-they-simply-wanted-me-to-be-silenced/</a><br /> Wall Street Journal - “Here’s What I Would Have Said at Brandeis”<br /> <a href="http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906?mg=reno64-wsj&amp;url=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906.html">http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906?mg=reno64-wsj&amp;url=http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304512504579493410287663906.html</a><br /> <br /> Tags: Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Hirsi Ali, Brandeis University, Brandeis, Ayaan Hirsi Ali Brandeis University, religion, criticism of religion, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Bible, Qur’an, God, Allah, honorary degree, atheism, atheist, atheists, university, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, free speech, freedom of speech, silenced, censorship, The Fantastic Skeptic A Celebration of Reason - 2012 Global Atheist Convention tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2011-09-09:2182797:Video:1625726 2011-09-09T14:21:49.793Z Donegal http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/Donegal <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/a-celebration-of-reason-2012-global-atheist-convention"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/dckdZaUYaPtIxgUBnTp2twTLzmD6awITpW2zwI*Vf0W5p4ITgZAN0mMAA6V8aUlH1EMHYhN5bZ6IPlgMI-9NKoMy7iy4q-hl/932845430.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The 2012 Global Atheist Convention will be the biggest ever atheist event in Australia's history.
