The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, Dr. Everett Piper, has had a bellyful.
Students at his institute of higher learning were protesting a university chapel service: some brainless twollop said he felt “victimized” by the text, I Corinthians 13–one of the most beautiful chapters in the Bible, the one about faith, hope, and love. Anyway, this dope said it made him feel bad.
Dr. Piper’s reply to this is well worth reading ( http://godfatherpolitics.com/26763/conservative-college-president-tells-students-to-suck-it-up-college-isnt-a-day-care/ ). Let me quote very briefly:
“Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic! Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims! Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them ‘feel bad’ about themselves, is a ‘hater,’ a ‘bigot,’ an ‘oppressor,’ and a ‘victimizer.'” And he concludes: “This is not a day care. This is a university!”
Yes, indeed, we’ve taught these collidge dolts to be self-absorbed and narcissistic. Having been unable to find it in themselves to give the kids their time, a lot of modern parents make up for it by spoiling and overpraising them. And then, of course, we’ve got some towering examples of narcissism and self-absorption. In any speech by that toad Obama or that satyr, Bill Clinton, how many times is the word “I” spoken?
This what happens when everybody goes to college. Education is devalued past zero and into the negative numbers.
Yes, I’m feeling a bit crabby today. We had to rush off to the nursing home this morning, after getting a panicky and rather long phone call yesterday just as supper was about to be served–and when we got there, the storm had already passed, problems solved, no need for us to be there, really. And a few other problems that are not worth mentioning, but all the same, vexing.
Please bear with me.
