Ann Coulter, why waste your time?

Higher Education?
(by R.P.Edwards)

Higher education
Higher, in what way?
Higher in their arrogance?
Higher in their pay?
Higher in their import?
Higher in their minds?
Higher in their twisted words
That mold our child’s mind?
Higher in their moral voice?
Higher in their worth?
They’re “Higher” in their toxic wind
That poisons…all the earth.

Ann Coulter goes to a Canadian University…and is prevented from speaking because some ‘enlightened’ students throw a tantrum.  Is this surprising?  No, secular universities (and not a few “religious” ones) are bastions of “liberal think” which espouses freedom, except when it disagrees with their ideology.  So, I’m not surprised at the uproar.  But what I am surprised at…is why do we care?  Why do we care what university students and professors think?  Who are they?  Why are they important?  Why do they deserve even a moment of our time?

Now, perhaps years ago, when charters were made and cornerstones laid; perhaps then opinions would count.  Perhaps then, when, like the signers of the Declaration of Independence, there was a general acknowledgement of God, and that all “rights” come from Him; perhaps then these faithful tutors and the tutored would be worth a listen.  But now?  What a laugh. 

So Ann, here’s some advice.  Next time, instead of going to fantasyland, rent a hall in a town or city where people actually “work.”  A place where the effects of University bred lawmakers…is dearly felt.  A place where the everyday hardships of “life” produces an education so much higher than that spewed from the ivory towers.  I promise, we won’t shout you down. 

As an aside:  Jonathan Dickinson, the first President of Princeton, said, “Cursed be all that learning that is contrary to the cross of Christ.”  Yes, brother, it is cursed…indeed.

That’s what I think.  How about you?  Click comments below…and say.

Thanks, Pop. To others: My dad is a member of the "greatest" generation. A naval officer in WWII. And he's still fighting for America.
