Our Confused Youth

Dennis Prager's column today provides an excellent look at how society can confuse young people by what it allows and honors. There's no denying that college students are impressionable, and what's drilled into them at school can change everything from . . . their view on politics to their sexual preference, as this example illustrates.

Prager's column features an excerpt from a interview he conducted on his syndicated radio show with a college student from Montreal named Anna Montrose (a full transcript is available from Prager's Web site). Prager describes Montrose as "a bright and articulate 22-year-old woman." He adds, "She is a fine example of the type of thinking and behavior a homosexuality-celebrating culture—such as that at our universities—produces."

Educated doesn't equal liberal, it equals liberated from archaic thinking and allows your mind to expand from the confines of its former self.
The people who thought the world was round, the people who wanted to free the slaves, the people who realized women should be able to vote, people who wanted to be treated fairly in the work place, people who wanted a 40 hour work week were all considered liberal at one point in time.
All things being equal, your line of thinking would have aligned against all of this.

With your argument that young people are impressionable and that we need to be careful as to what they are taught, does that mean we should keep kids from going to Sunday school so they don’t end up believing that Noah got 2 Komodo dragons, 2 Do Do birds, 2 of every species of Penguin and 2 Polar Bears in a boat, and that afterwards Noah’s family came out of the boat as a black couple, an Asian couple, a white couple and a mid eastern couple and all spoke different languages?
I would rather children learn not to hate people who are different than learn that nonsense.

The earth is round and has been here for over 5 billion years, get over it.
