A growing number of public universities have taken the same role of brainwashing students as the public school system. They openly attack many of the values and virtues of conservative and Christian Americans.
A few years back I spoke to a young woman who told me about her first day in college. Her second class of the day was freshman biology and it was a lecture room that held well over 100 students. One of the first questions her professor asked was how many of the students were Christians. She said that about half of the class held up their hands. Then her professor said that most of them won’t be Christian by the time he’s through with them and probably none of them would be Christians by the time they graduate.
I’ve heard similar accounts from other college students. It gets even worse if a biology or geology professor finds out that a student is a Christian and a creationist.
Some professors use deliberate in your face attacks of Christianity while others are more subtle. A psychology quiz recently given to students at Ohio State University is an example of the more subtle attack.
The quiz was part of a for-credit homework group of quizzes for an undergraduate Psychology 1100 class. One of the quiz questions was:
“Theo has an IQ of 100 and Aine has an IQ of 125. Which of the following statements would you expect to be true?
- Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.
- Aine earns less money than Theo.
- Theo is more liberal than Aine.
Theo is an atheist, while Aine is a Christian.”
The first answer – ‘Aine is an atheist, while Theo is a Christian.’ was considered to be the correct answer.
A student who wishes to remain anonymous and is enrolled in the class reported the quiz question to Campus Reform. She told them:
“Colleges will tolerate pretty much any religion other than Christianity. If colleges really want to give everyone a fair shot, they should stay away from making comments about any religion.”
“How can you really measure which religion has a higher IQ?”
As if to take the blame off of faculty, a psychology administrator said that quiz questions are usually based on textbook material, but they are generally prepared by graduate assistants. Sounds like a convenient way to shift the blame, doesn’t it?
Supposedly, Ohio State has strict policies against any form of discrimination including sex, race and religion. I seriously doubt that the discrimination against Christians is regularly enforced, especially in the psychology, biology and geology courses. But then, Christians seem to be the only group of people that the courts allowed to be discriminated against in America, once a Christian nation.
