Teacher Dismayed: Christianity Losing Out to Paganism?

Really, we’re not there yet

A Catholic priest turned history teacher at Columbia University thinks America is losing its Christianity and turning pagan (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/dec/30/faith-in-us-withers-as-apathy-trumps-religion/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=TWTnews2332861&fbclid=IwAR36EINYc021DJnxjnx8jTqg3bvfSjB2pkg8MRtk2YCGgulX_D4HQYMc5GQ).

He bases this on several factors: a) his students’ ignorance of the Bible, b) church attendance dropping, nationwide, in various denominations, and c) what appears to him to be total apathy towards religion among his students and most other people at Columbia.

“But what went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment?”

Has this man forgotten where he is? Columbia University. The heart of darkness. The belly of the beast. Dude, Republicans exist in the tens of millions–but good luck finding any at Columbia. Ditto Biblically-literate Christians. Heck, you’re lucky if you find those in a seminary!

Besides which–and I speak from personal experience–how many twentysomethings are all that interested in “religion”? They’re mostly interested in themselves. It can take a long time to grow out of that.

He also seems to be conflating “no church membership” with “no belief in Christianity.” They are two very different things. This guy needs to get out more.

People are leaving liberal denominations in droves–the Presbyterian Church USA, for example. They leave those liberal churches not because they’ve lost their Christian faith, but because they want to keep it.

If you must go to a place like Columbia, go to reclaim ground for Christ. Too much has been ceded to the enemy.

 


The Agony of Reading Books by the Wrong Color People

Every time you think America’s university system has hit bottom, it lurches down another notch. You’re gonna just love this story from Columbia University–under Herbert Marcuse in the 1960s, one of the original hatcheries of American Stalinism.

Here a quivering tulip of a student, “in her fifth year of undergraduate studies” (remember when it only took four years?), claims to have suffered “trauma” and “anguish” over having to read books written by white men ( https://pjmedia.com/trending/2015/11/20/columbia-student-in-anguish-because-she-has-to-read-books-by-white-people ).

Oh, the suffering! And the university officials can’t do anything with her because they’re the ones who filled her head with all this glop in the first place. They can’t disavow the ideology of victimhood that they taught her.

The student is black, and female. Therefore she should only have to read books written by black females. For any other kind of book to appear before her eyes would be “microaggression” and “oppression.”

As it is, the poor creature expects she’ll have to put in a sixth year just to get her bachelor’s degree.

Oh, no! They call it a “bachelor’s degree!” Quick, somebody call 911, we have to report an incident of microaggression. “Bachelor” is a sexist word, injurious and hurtful and mean to all female students enrolled in colleges throughout the land.

Real racism having been solved, inasmuch as flawed human beings living in a fallen world can solve it, what remains is imaginary racism. The great thing about imaginary problems is that they remain in perpetuity, they can never be solved because they don’t exist.

And have you noticed? Progressives and their followers have re-invented Jim Crow.

In their quest for freedom, they have subjected themselves to slavery.

Way to go.
