How about blaming the Catholics and the mainline Protestants? Emmaus Bible College isn't showing it. I doubt you'll see it at Oral Roberts or Bob Jones universities, either.
Exactly for what educational reason is the Vagina Monologues being shown to these schools?
Oh, I get it!
This means Barbara Boxer is scheduled to speak, right?
University of Toledo?!? Since I received my undergrad degree there I know its not Catholic. I'm just glad I've never supported the school after I left.
Augustana College(s) (there are two of them) are Lutheran. ELCA, maybe? I believe all of the other schools on your "maybe Catholic" list are secular.
College of St. Mary / Nebraska is not in Bp. Bruskewitz's diocese (Lincoln) but in the diocese of Omaha, hence, the question you should be asking is, "Where is Bishop Curtiss?"
All in all, a nice list of schools to which you should not consider sending your son or daughter. (And there are many more.)
Concordia University, River Forest is also Lutheran, but LCMS.
If Drake has any religious affiliation, it's news to me.
Yes, but a "bible college" withstanding the temptations research univesities face isn't all that impressive. It's kind of like applauding the Amish for not watching Sex and the City.
It's not Catholic? Then why do people say "Holy Toledo?" ;^D
Co-educational, non-denominational, private
Mount Holyoke College is a highly selective, nondenominational, residential, liberal arts college for women ...Founded in 1837 by chemist and revolutionary educator Mary Lyon, Mount Holyoke is the nation's oldest continuing institution of higher learning for women. It was the first of the Seven Sistersthe female equivalent of the predominantly male Ivy League.
By the way, I did mean to say, "Don't blame JUST the Catholics;" you do have somewhat of a point.
It's not Catholic? Then why do people call it "Holy Oke?" ;^D.
O wait, I did that joke already with Toledo. It sucked pretty bad then, too. :^)
Actually, it was pretty cute. But it made me think.....
I say Holy Smokes! but I don't think any better of my cigarettes.
Frankly, I couldn't care less whether you're impressed by it. Often the best way to resist temptations is to avoid the situations that produce them.
Let's make sure I'm getting your point. Are you now saying it's okay for your Catholic "research univesities" [sic] to show the V. Monologues, in order to appeal to the world around (and infesting) them?
Is there someplace where I can just withdraw my membership from this sick modern society?
No, I think he's saying that he wouldn't expect the world to infest a Bible college to the extent it might infest someplace actively trying to integrate faith into the life of a larger school.
A Bible college (unless I'm misunderstanding your term) is more analogous to a Catholic seminary than to someplace like Notre Dame. Aren't most of the people there studying for the ministry, interested in marrying a minister, or otherwise studying some faith-related subject ... hence the name "Bible College"?
A better analogy to e.g., Notre Dame would be someplace like Baylor. AFAIK, Baylor is staying pretty solid. (My wife went there for a time, and still gets some of their literature.) But they have a continuous fight on their hands.
Most of the larger, originally Protestant schools long ago became completely secularized, though. The Catholic schools apostatized in the 1960's after Humanae Vitae (the reiteration of the condemnation of contraception).
There are only about 10 authentically Catholic colleges left in the US, none of which are on this list.
No, absolutely not! But they do feel pressure to get grants, accredidations, rankings, etc. While it is definitely evil to put such things ahead of remaining a Christian university, and certainly even more evil to market oneself as a Christian university while allowing oneself to be so perverted; I was just recognizing that such pressures create a pressure bible colleges do not face.
Grant-writers and accrediting boards frown greatly on what they call censorship; even moreso on "discriminating" against heretical professors. If you then hire secular professors to teach secular subjects, you still find yourself with scads of secularists running around, implementing policies and protesting assertions of authenticity. If you resist hiring secula professors, good luck getting accredidation.
We could use a lot of missionaries in places like Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iran and even Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey and Egypt. Sure, those societies are even sicker, but of you're going to punch out, you might as well punch out as a martyr.
