Skip to comments.The Real Agenda of Some College Professors
Posted on 08/21/2010 8:49:53 AM PDT by wmfights
For Christian parents and students, this should be a matter of deep concern and active awareness. The secularization of most educational institutions is an accomplished fact. Indeed, many college and university campuses are deeply antagonistic to Christian truth claims and the beliefs held by millions of students and their families. Furthermore, the leftist bent of most faculty is well-documented, especially in elite institutions and within the liberal arts faculties. On many campuses, a significant number of faculty members are representatives of what has been called the adversary culture. They see their role as political and ideological, and they define their teaching role in these terms. Their agenda is nothing less than to separate students from their Christian beliefs and their intellectual and moral commitments.
A good many of these professors deny this agenda, but from time to time the mask is removed. Writing at the University Diaries column at the site InsideHigherEd.com, a professor of English revealed this agenda with amazing candor. Responding to an argument about the power of intellectual elites, this professor dropped any effort to hide the real agenda:
We need to encourage everyone to be in college for as many years as they possibly can, this professor wrote, in the hope that somewhere along the line they might get some exposure to the world outside their town, and to moral ideas not exclusively derived from their parents religion. If they dont get this in college, theyre not going to get it anywhere else.
This professor minces no words. The college experience, the argument goes, is the best (and perhaps last) opportunity for someone to break students commitments to the moral convictions derived from their parents religion.

The children of red states will seek a higher education, he explains, and that education will very often happen in blue states or blue islands in red states. For the foreseeable future, loyal dittoheads will continue to drop off their children at the dorms. After a teary-eyed hug, Mom and Dad will drive their SUV off toward the nearest gas station, leaving their beloved progeny behind.
Then what? He proudly claims: And then they are all mine.
****moral ideas not exclusively derived from their parents religion*****
If that isn’t the most illogical, brain dead statement...from an *intellectual* (???)
The moral code that has protected society from self-destruction and guided us to civil co-existence has been the Ten Commandments. They are the bases for our US Constitution and our laws.
Atheists and agnostics of conscience follow the TC rules and I am convinced they are thankful for them.
The professors at our college’s and universities are the last vestages of the Woodstock generation, especially in the political science departments. These people didn’t want to work for a living way back in the late sixties and early seventies, so they took the education their parents paid for and parlayed it into teaching professions. They have been for the last 40 years been infesting the minds of our students with the rhetoric of a generation that did more to harm America than any before it.
Hey, look everybody! Natural Selection at work!
I teach for a for profit university and our goal is to get students graduated and into the workforce as soon as possible. My wife has taught in both private and state universities and the attitude is far different. Students are encouraged if not pushed toward graduate or professional schools almost to the detriment of those seeking only an undergraduate degree and go into the workforce.
They’re winning,we’re losing.At this time.God gets to make his opinion known very soon.Too bad for them.
You are so right!
The challenge we have is to make sure our children see there is a radical bias in what they are being taught. They need the degree. They don't need to believe, or respect the professor.
That's exactly the type of professor that I distrusted, tuned out and avoided if at all possible. And it's not only in college but but at the high school level also. Sadly, some gullible souls will accept without questioning anything a teacher says.
What role do you think religion plays in this decline of our universities?
Hitler and the NAZIs used the same plan, as did Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, the African warlords, muslims, etc., etc.
I'm afraid they are. They are convincing these bright young men and women that to succeed in life you have to fall into lockstep with them and it's the road to perdition.
I agree. At what point do parents start telling their children you need the diploma, or degree but you don't need to believe or respect the teacher?
Don’t take classes from known liberals.
For most people that would mean, “Don’t ever go to school.”
This also, conveniently, increases revenue to these factories of self-admitted indoctrination. This is totally self-serving and an obvious detriment to the country as a whole. Education is a value-adding activity only to a point that varies according to the goals being sought.
Given the high fixed costs of this 'education', I think that I would urge any college student to maximize classes, skip working (presume if financially feasible) and look to graduate as rapidly as is possible. The only exception would be for internships that give valuable exposure to the professional workplace.

Yeah, but most of these kids, even if they do stray for a bit, go back to the values taught to them by their parents. A 20 year old student usually thinks they have all the answers, but when they enter the real world and start raising kids of their own, they realize Mom and Dad were right all along.
I sent my sons to a RC High School because the urban area I live in is liberal and the schools stink. I thought it will be a conservative environment. I was wrong. The teachers were all extremely liberal. They put up stickers for obama, "coexist" and preached the same liberal garbage that my sons would have been exposed to in a public school.
I've been blessed with 2 strong willed sons that are independent thinkers, so despite this they are still conservative, but the point is most kids will succumb to the prevailing culture.
