Can Our Universities Be Saved From Radical-Left Ideologies?

Can Our Universities Be Saved From Radical-Left Ideologies?
Where is the one place in America where free speech is commonly suppressed, where there is often as much indoctrination as education, and where radical left ideologies reign almost unchallenged?
It is our college and university campuses. Many of them have become so biased and extreme that even CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, hardly a conservative, excoriated their intolerance. Can our universities be saved?
We’re not just talking about the occasional educational faux pas, such as the embarrassing incident that occurred in 1989 when heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson received an honorary doctorate from Central State University in Ohio.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony in cap and gown, Tyson remarked, “I wasn’t sure what kind of doctor I was, but looking at all the lovely sisters here, I think I’ll be a doctor of gynecology.”
No, we’re talking about a systematic dumbing down and radicalizing of our campuses.
Typical of the dumbing down of our schools was this comment from comedian Kumail Nanjiani, delivering the commencement speech at his alma mater, Grinnell College in Iowa.
He said, “So here’s another concrete piece of advice I can give you – have sex with an immigrant. We’re going through a tough time right now and it would just be really great for morale.”
What great advice from a commencement speaker.
Typical of the radicalizing of our schools were these comments from Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, an assistant professor in African American studies at Princeton. Speaking at the graduation service for Hamilton College in Massachusetts, she referred to President Trump as “a racist, sexist megalomaniac.”

InterVarsity Upholds Christian Teaching: And Many Don’t Like It
Recently on BreakPoint, we told you how Baptist ethicist David Gushee proclaimed there was no more middle ground on LGBT issues. He’s right. You either approve of so-called sexually progressive ideas or you don’t–and if you don’t, you’ve placed yourself in the bigoted, wrong-side-of-history category.
That’s exactly what happened with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Earlier this month, IV informed employees that they were expected to align with traditional Christian teaching on marriage and human sexuality. If they couldn’t, they were asked to come forward.

Children Under Siege

Children Under Siege

From After School Satan Clubs To TV Entertainment

Children and teens are all under a sustained spiritual siege  beginning with pre-school all the way through high school and beyond.

Indications are that there is a multi-pronged attack for the hearts and minds of the young; a concerted effort to capture their spiritual attention and mold their moral allegiances right from their earliest days.

One vivid example of this trend was recently reported: the opening of ‘After School Satan Clubs’ by The Satanic Temple for children as young as five years of age.  Harry Farley for ChristianToday.com explained that the organization has billed the extra-curricular option as a challenge to evangelical Christian after-school programming which they say has infiltrated America’s elementary schools.

How a generation lost its common culture

HOW A GENERATION LOST ITS COMMON CULTURE

By Patrick Deneen

My students are know-nothings. They are exceedingly nice, pleasant, trustworthy, mostly honest, well-intentioned, and utterly decent. But their brains are largely empty, devoid of any substantial knowledge that might be the fruits of an education in an inheritance and a gift of a previous generation.
