Colleges today are teaching kids what to think, instead of how to think ( how sad )

Speaking on American Family Radio earlier this week, Dr. Carol M. Swain said campuses used to be places with opposing views and debates.

“Opposing sides came together, people listened, and the person with the best arguments and the best data and ideas would be the most persuasive – and people would leave the debate forum probably thinking differently than when they entered because they would have heard more sides,” said Swain, who had been a professor of political science and professor of law at Vanderbilt University since 1999.

“[But] I think the universities today have a viewpoint, and they’re very much into indoctrination; and when students arrive, they teach them what to think, not how to think critically.”

Today Thursday, May 4th, 2017 is the National Day of Prayer

 

Perhaps  one of the most powerful calls to prayer came from President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. In 1863, he issued a proclamation for a day of “humiliation, fasting and prayer.” Here is some of that proclamation: “We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.”

Carl Senior Returns

I’ll take an order of humility with a side of humor. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

The commercials from the Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. fast food chains in the last ten years made me lose my appetite. Raunchy ads with barely-clothed women eating burgers drove away families, and anyone with self-respect.

But after a change in management, it seems that the chain has seen the light, and they’ve got a hilarious new commercial to prove it.

In it, a fictional founder named Carl Hardee, Senior storms into the office where his playboy son has been calling the shots. He cleans up “Junior’s” mess, gets rid of the hot tubs and scantily-clad girls, and apologizes to America for letting his hamburger joint lose its way. Back in charge, the dad now assures us that Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. will be focusing on food, not sex.

It’s a great commercial, not only because it pokes fun at the drifting, millennial man-child stereotype, but because it mocks an ad campaign that so many former customers just found distasteful.
