This was a really layered event that raises a number of perplexing issues about the relationship between the civil, public, and private domains and the function of ideology in these domains. But in this case, the policy was probably unconstitutional. A taxpayer supported event that is accessible through a public venue probably can't be ordered around whether or not the attendees agree with the speaker. They can only be excluded if they posed a credible threat to the present's safety, which might be the pretext.

If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
