    College Tours

    My daughters are starting to look at colleges. They want schools with strong liberal arts programs, and ones committed to freedom of speech and thought. Interesting schools we visited this week: 1. Grove City College (PA): Had a rigorous Christian vibe, but is non-sectarian. Required chapel (16 per semester) averages 20 minutes (music portion is optional). The campus felt safe and comfortable. Room/Board/Tuition = about $26,000 2. Hillsdale College (MI): Had a super interesting history (abolitionists movement, first to admit ex-slaves, early to admit women), very strong liberal arts (Great Books are required learning. Room/Board/Tuition = about $35,000, though the average student pays about half. 3. Carnegie Mellon, they seemed selective and the knew it. They are very proud of their graduates' successes. Anyone have thoughts on these or other schools?
  2. I've been thinking dark thoughts of late. Since California's public university system is de-recognizing student clubs that discriminate on the basis of religion (i.e. they stipulate that leaders of the club actually affirm specific religious doctrines) http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-California/2014/09/11/California-State-University-Derecognizes-Campus-Christian-Organization, and since Gordon College was recently asked by its regional accrediting agency to officially explain its policy of requiring staff and students to adhere to sexual abstinence outside of heterosexual marriage (ahem, this appears discriminatory on the face of it...), http://www.christianpost.com/news/gordon-college-dont-sell-your-soul-for-secular-accreditation-127520/ me wonders where these trends are leading? 1. Will chaplains become extinct? It's easy to imagine a plaintiff suing a government agency for paying--with their tax dollars--to employ clergy who teach that their lifestyle (gender identity) is sin. 2. Will religious schools who have moral/spiritual codes of conduct lose their accreditation, since they have institutionalized their discriminatory beliefs? I hope everyone realizes that I oppose and abhor these ideas. Yet, they seem to be the logical conclusion to the trends we're seeing.
