Conservative BYU Campus Protests Dick Cheney Speech

Some students and faculty on one of the nation's most conservative campuses want Brigham Young University to withdraw an invitation for Vice President Dick Cheney to speak at commencement later this month.

Cheney at BYU

by Deanna Spingola

The White House targeted officials at Brigham Young University (BYU) in January to offer Dick Cheney’s speaking services at their Commencement exercises on April 26, 2007. I seriously question Cheney’s prerogative and motives in his offer to BYU, owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Is this an attempt to clean-up his image, mix politics with religion, gain a silent endorsement for war-mongering actions, or wage a struggle for his own political survival or to discretely discredit Professor Steven Jones who retired early from BYU......
