This makes me cry for the future:

"The complaints were made to Northern Colorado's "Bias Response Team," an Orwellian office on campus that asks students to report their peers and professors for anything that upsets or offends them. When the news outlet Heat Street made an open records request for some of the complaints, it discovered that two students had become so upset about having to hear an opinion they disagreed with they filed reports with school administrators.

And rather than telling the students to buck up because they might hear those opinions outside of college or on the news or in the media, the schools told the professors to stop teaching that there's an alternate viewpoint."

there's a quote our church often uses about true education being something that teaches men to be thinkers, not merely reflectors of other mens' thoughts. in order to do this you need to know what others think, but that seems counterintuitive to the climate of many universities today. how depressing.

found this link on Facebook. it's long, 13 minutes, but it's more of what we've been seeing. you'll have to scroll down a wee bit to find the video.
