I am deeply disturbed today as i read the news. In particular I just read a story about a young man, a college student in fact, who was “booted” from a class he was required to take in order to graduate because he dared to voice his beliefs in class which were contrary to his professor.
Lake Ingle, a senior at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (I know a weird name for a school) was attending a lecture entitled “Christianity 481: Self, Sin, and Salvation” by Professor Alison Downie. After showing a 15-minute TED Talk by transgender ex-pastor Paula Stone Williams, Professor Downie asked the women in the class to comment. Mr. Ingle, after seeing no women were responding, spoke up and presented his views. He told the class that biologists maintain there are only two genders - male and female. Instead of allowing Mr. Ingle the opportunity to speak freely and have an open discourse on the subject, Professor Downie proceeded to shut Mr. Ingle down, had him removed from class and referred him to the school’s Academic Integrity Board. Subsequently he was barred from attending the class and his graduation put in jeopardy.
It is not only shameful but also repugnant that so-called “educators” at schools of higher learning are given free-reign to indoctrinate young adults in such a horrific manner. Our universities teach false-hoods of multi-sexual identities (a fancy way of saying they believe there are more than two sexes in our species), they teach that those with opposing views should be silenced, that their view is the only view allowed. Sadly these indoctrinating thugs are no different than the early rank and file members of the National Socialist German Workers Party, more commonly known in English as the Nazi Party. Yes, I said it. The Nazi’s sought to exclude those whose political ideals were not in line with their own, they sought a collective subordination of individual rights and persecuted those of faith. How is that unlike our liberal educators, in fact how is that unlike most of those who follow liberal ideals? Conservatives are eager for open free debate while liberals try to shut down free speech and truth in deference to their own ideals.
Obviously not all liberals are so close-minded and not all conservatives are so open to debate, it is however the pre-dominance of close-minded liberals who have created such a great chasm socially, politically, spiritually and economically in the United States with freedom loving conservatives. It is the pre-dominance of these close-minded liberals who have fostered and encouraged hate in our world.
If we as a people cannot learn to allow freedom of speech, to allow for the free and open debate of issues without threat of backlash, if we cannot tolerate differences among ourselves we are doomed as a country to the fates of the great empires of history - annihilation and destruction.
