Educational Diversity Can Easily Turn to Perversity
The perversity of the stress on diversity in our colleges is a form of social engineering, creating many negatives. Diversity is neither good or bad in itself, but can become perversity when many of our colleges and universities are so committed to social engineering that promotes racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic focuses, or whatever it might be instead of true education. When we attack through indoctrination the very foundation upon which our Western Civilization is formed—the Judeo-Christian moral fabric and above the evangelical message of Christ — it is bad. The Bible well says, “There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end thereof is the way of death!” (Prov. 14:12)
Scott Greer, author of No Campus for White Men, said the whole purpose of higher education has shifted, saying that: “There’s this new trend in higher education that has not so much stressed teaching people real world skills or knowledge that they could take into their job and for the rest of their lives,” Greer stated, “but almost in teaching these very insidious left-wing ideas such as on white privilege, that America was built on white supremacy, that you have to compete for victimhood in order to attain status in our society, and all these things that seem contrary to what we think higher education should be.” (Idea whites ‘responsible for every evil ‘drilled into students’ heads – by Joe Wilson, WND, July 7, 2017)
In respect to extra curricula collegiate activities, many of our colleges have refused to recognize or support evangelistic clubs on campus such as Campus Crusade or InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. Yet, they have supported clubs that were Muslim or were LGBT, which are given full support, all done under the banner of the promotion of diversity. The purpose of college, university, and post-secondary education should not be to promote diversity, but it should be to cultivate the acquisition of and growth in knowledge of life, so as to promote and have each individual realize their full potential, and it should not be a means to promote various civil rights issues at the expense of concepts such as freedom of speech or freedom of religion.
