Yet another institution has bowed down to the political correctness bullies.
“Our world has changed since 9/11 and we’ve become a more global society with the Internet. The heartbeat behind this was not political correctness, but expanded opportunities for our students.”
Expanded opportunities? Meaning to enroll more LGBT students as one outcome? Of course they won’t come out and say that, but the motivation seems clear.
Let’s look at it this way. If you’re an LGBT member of society, would you feel inclined to attend this Christian college merely because they changed their sports moniker in order to be more ‘inclusive’? I certainly wouldn’t. I would know it’s nothing more than lip service.
Unless they’ve truly changed their thinking and believe that all factions of society should be celebrated as the LGBT community desires even if it directly contradicts the written word a Christian school should be abiding by.
I would suggest a book burning to eradicate the Bible, the Word of God, from their campus. That way they wouldn’t come across as hypocritical.
If this is the ‘new’ global society enabled by the internet, why not go all in and eradicate all the ‘outdated’ beliefs we have? The movement is well underway to do just that with the Constitution, although it could be argued it has become irrelevant already since our system of checks and balances at the federal government level is non-existent anyway.
Just as you can’t ‘blend’ socialism type policies in with a free market, liberty based society, neither can you mold religion to fit the political/sociological views of the day.
Principle are only bedrocks if they stand true to the test of time. Opponents realize that the way to eradicate them is to first ‘mold’ them to a changing society before going all in to eliminate them.
It certainly seems to be working, doesn’t it?
