    That's what I've always found so pathetic about evangelicals, is how they measure up to other religious nuts. The Catholics and even the Mormons provide quality education on many levels whereas the Evangelicals have Liberty U.
    They also have Bob Jones U.

    Your reasoning in this is as a broad sea, one molecule deep.
    I think that might go over better at Bob Jones University.

    I know it's an editorial but it stems from a real event. If someone can find a better article I'd appreciate it.

    I realize this is a private institution so they can do what they want, but I still believe a broader issue is going on here: the politicization of educational institutions. How can you just outright ban a Democrat club on these social fringe issues? It would be like banning the GOP club because you don't support war. As if the GOP never does anything "unchristian".
    Just another reason why the evangelistic are not taken seriously and why the GOP should boot them from their ranks.

    Which bans interracial dating (or at least did fairly recently). Another charmer.

    I'm really not anti-religion. I think the Catholic Church has been on of the founding pillars of Western Civilization, and despite all the evil **** it's done the net value is positive. The inquisition, the crusades, pedophiles, etc...but I think the fact that they were basically the only stewards of knowledge during the Dark Ages weighs greater then those admittedly heinous crimes. I strongly believe that if it weren't for the Catholic Church Europe would be ignorant and the West wouldn't have conquered the world.

    And furthermore, the Catholic Church was the major patron of the arts in Western society until about the last century and a half. A great deal of the West's culture output was due to the Church.

    And the church had its fair share of genuine intellectuals and authors.

    But Evagenglism is just socially valueless.

    Their schools are ****.

    Their art (the little they make) is ****.

    Their thinkers (such as they are) are ****.

    THeir authors are ****.

    They are ****.

    The Catholic Church gave us the Sistine Chapel, Thomas Aquinas, Ave Maria and The Chronicles of Narnia (not to mention basically keeping Western literacy in all forms alive for 300 years) and the Evangelicals have given us Wal-Mart churches, Jerry Falwell, Contemporary Christian Music and The Left Behind series. Pathetic.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Can't believe in this day and age people actually pay to get brainwashed at these religious "universities" .

    You must learn to take deep breaths from the diaphragm and attain some semblance of ordered thinking before posting, let people come to think less of your cognitive abilities.

    My point is that he presents himself as a pale copy of such entities. Do try to follow the spirit of the conversation, alright?

    And it is not of course exactly what Hitler did. He was far more sophisticated, but made ample use of less intelligent bellicosity, such as we see on display here and in the former post to advance his malign agenda.

    One must learn to govern their passions lest they become similar tools for other tyrannical regimes, no?


    By the way, no matter the rank, Liberty does indeed have a ranking, thus it is not a pretend school.

    Carry on.

    You must learn to not compare people to Hitler and then deny that you did it. No one is going to buy your bull**** "look how mature I am, you're so silly" crap when you called someone (albeit indirectly) a Nazi for thinking Liberty U is bull****. You grow up.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    It is not a pretend school, it exists. However, it is a brainwashing worthless school.

    Where you under the mistaken impression that there were not millions of National Socialists in the Third Reich?

    To say that the posts in question are redolent of the author of Mien Kampf is simply unwarranted. No, you must remember that for every Evil Genius, there are far more willing minions, many of whom will be thoughtless dupes, parroting slogans and platitudes they never could have developed themselves.
