    A Marquette University professor recently argued that individual liberties, including free speech and property rights, are merely forces “that reproduce capitalist violence.” Professor Jodi Melamed made the remarks during a lecture titled “Understanding Racial Capitalism and the Open Secret of Racial Capitalist Violence,” which she delivered at St. Olaf college on April 20. After “acknowledging the people of this land, especially the Wahpekute Dakota who have been relative to this land on which St. Olaf sits for melania,” Melamed stated that the purpose of her address was to “share with you guys some new work on the open secret of...

    Hundreds of students packed an administration building for a protest at St. Olaf College on May 1 as students boycotted classes to protest alleged racist incidents at the school in the southern Minnesota town of Northfield. Doualy Xaykaothao | MPR News file A racist note that rocked St. Olaf College two weeks ago was a fabrication written by a student apparently to draw attention to campus climate concerns, the college said Wednesday. The note was "reportedly left on a student's car on April 29. We confronted a person of interest who confessed to writing the note. We've confirmed that this...

    Exposing the ELCA ^ | 3/23/12 | Dan Skogen
    We really need to start a series called, “Are ELCA colleges Christian?” I say that because it seems to me, more and more, worldly values and morals are taking precedent within ELCA colleges. St. Olaf College is affiliated with the ELCA. On St. Olaf's official website we learn of an event called the “Wellness Olympics” and are told this, “Back by popular demand, the Wellness Center is hosting a team-based competition that tests students’ knowledge of sexual health, reproductive anatomy, and STI statistics. It all culminates in an intense relay race to properly put on a condom while wearing ‘beer...

    Imagine going to work for a church college and having to tone down the God talk. Chris Meidt couldn't imagine it, so he hasn't. His former employer, Bethel College in Arden Hills, expected faculty and students to lead Christ-centered lives, and to wear those beliefs on their sleeves. His new school, St. Olaf College in Northfield, is avowedly Lutheran. But unlike Bethel, St. Olaf doesn't require its faculty or students — or football coaches — to sign statements of commitment to Jesus Christ. No matter. It wasn't school policy that drove Meidt to live his life for the Lord or...
