Education, Discrimination, Indoctrination

“I know that some of you out there are creationists.
You really don’t believe in evolution.
I personally don’t think you should be allowed
to leave this university with that belief.”
— Lesley Northrup

Some atheists go into denial when I mention that there are college professors that are openly derisive of the beliefs of their students, and actively work to destroy Christian beliefs, and others justify the practice since it fits their own bigotry. It should not be surprising to have this happen in America. After all, we have unrepentant terrorists like William Ayers getting tenure. Active discrimination against creationists exists. True scientific inquiry does not protect the established orthodoxy, but will examine scientific evidence that runs against it. The same goes for education. Let's face it, we do not have education, we have indoctrination centers. And anyone would be hard-pressed to find a legitimate educational reason for attacking the personal beliefs of students.
A university dean in Florida, who moonlights as an Episcopal priest and is an admitted lesbian, recently caused controversy after a video surfaced on the web that provided snippets of a lecture she delivered to students in her Epistemology class, in which she discusses religion and evolution.
“This is a book of myth, and that’s going to offend some of you,” stated professor Lesley Northup in the video. “And I don’t really care.”
