Recent Grad Exposes Sick University-Funded Sex Culture

by Cathy Ruse

September 6, 2019

Thanks to recent college graduate Kara Bell for shedding light on how today’s colleges promote sex, porn, condoms, lies, and a body-and-soul-killing hookup culture

Hello?? Are there any adults in the room at these publicly-funded institutions?

Take a few moments to read her columns. Be prepared to be furious.

Christian parents must be the adults in the room.

We must face the hard fact that ideologues at colleges and universities are actively recruiting our children to the cause of the sexual revolution.

Our responsibilities as Christian parents raising Christian children are not only to protect them from this ideology but to help them push back against it. Resolve to do that—today.

Then be grateful for people like Kara Bell and those who helped prepare her to face this madness, and then write about it.

Kara interned with Young America’s Foundation, a conservative youth organization founded in 1969 to inspire young Americans “by the ideas of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values.”

Today, Kara is a public relations officer for the Clare Boothe Luce Center for Conservative Women.

My hope is that more conservative women will be inspired by Kara to “speak truth to power.”

My hope is also that more parents will demand responsibility and accountability from the adults on the receiving end of their tens of thousands of dollars!

Does Faith Mean a Better College Education?

by Rob Schwarzwalder

October 12, 2011

Forbes magazine has issued its listing of the best colleges in America. Some of the magazine’s data were compiled by the “Rate My Professors” website. Of interest to FRC Blog readers is the following: of the 25 colleges with the best professors, 10 are either overtly Christian or affiliated with a Christian denomination (the distinction being that some religiously-oriented colleges have a more faith-integrated mission and curriculum than others). Two others are military academies (West Point, Air Force) with strong pro-faith traditions.

Of further note is that “(n)one of the Ivy league schools … crack the list of the top 25 schools with the best professors. Princeton came the closest at 57th best. According to the teacher quality rankings, Cornell fared the worst among the Ivies it came in 445th out of 650 schools.

Does this mean that those who teach in faith-based institutions of higher education are more caring, more diligent, or more competent than those who teach at in state or otherwise secular institutions? Not necessarily. But perhaps faith-friendliness encourages the kind of personal interest and focused teaching that is so often lacking in larger and/or secular schools.

A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education,” said Theodore Roosevelt, a Harvard grad. When the Bible and university training are combined, students benefit greatly.

Register Today for our Upcoming Family Policy Lecture

by Krystle Gabele

April 7, 2011

Is American higher education soon to be federalized? We know that diversity of choice in higher education is lacking? One independent study of the Social Science division at the University of Oregon found one registered Republican on the Faculty. Join us for a Family Policy Lecture on Wednesday, May 11, 2011, as we focus on the destructive potential of new “state authorization” regulations that are key aspects of the Obama Administration’s higher education reforms. What else is likely to be imposed on American higher education? And what will the GOP’s response be? Is doing nothing better than something?

The featured speakers include:

  • Dr. Richard J. Bishirijan, President, Yorktown University
  • Dr. C. Ronald Kimberling, President, Argosy University, Nashville, Tenn.
  • Dr. Peter Wood, President, National Association of Scholars
