Why Do Universities Hate Christianity So Much?

One of the main storylines in a popular fictional Christian movie last year called “God’s Not Dead” featured an atheist philosophy professor who, on the first day of class, tells his students: “I would like to bypass the senseless debate altogether and jump to the conclusion that every sophomore is already aware of – there is no God.”

The professor required his students to write a statement disavowing God with three specific words – “God is dead” – and the movie follows one student who refuses to do so.

I thought of this movie recently when a student writer for The College Fix recently reported on a philosophy professor who is visiting campuses giving guest lectures that argue the God of Christianity represents immorality. His talk is titled: “If a God Exists, Then Anything is Permissible.”

Not surprisingly, he is also a faculty advisor for the Secular Student Alliance club…

But they sure like Islam! Next, they will be banning “786” and saying that it is a perfectly rational thing to do.

  • They’re like spoiled children who hate their parents that’s why.

      It’s about the gay sex. It’s all about the gay sex.

      The atheists who are prepared to also criticize Islam are at least consistent (of course they end up being called Islamophobes).

        Cultural Marxists see European civilization as the enemy they must destroy.

    Sadly, it’s fashionable to hate on Christianity. His argument sounds remarkably like that of a pouting child… which is exactly how the so-called “Rational Response Squad” sounded when they pulled that one out on the equally-dull-witted Ray Comfort.

    I’m not in university anymore, but, I do have a cable and a TV, so I wonder if CNN will dare to follow up their ‘Finding Jesus’ series with a similar series titled ‘Proving Muhammad’?

    They hate it because they hate the superiority of the West. But in doing so, they reveal rhat they are not free of the Christian legacy because their sacralization of the non-Western victim is a parody of Christianity, the homage vice pays to virtue. Any person who can just hate religion without taking seriously the need to explain why we are religious beings in the first place is nor a real thinker, and franky that includes many philosophers many of whom are ethical dim wits.

    Marxism. That’s the beginning, middle, and end of the University system’s antipathy towards Christianity.

    I would have written “There is no Allah”.

    The prof is violating the established principles of philosophy. Telling students to accept the unprovable atheist proposition on faith alone is to command them not to think…this is unprofessional and unphilosophical. He is appealing to his authority as prof to demand belief in his proposition ‘there is no god’. I think the university should apply authority to this prof and declare ‘there is no prof’.
