At last, we can put this hate crime/hate hoax/whatever, with the still-unknown-to-me “celebrity” guy, to rest. I’ll sleep better. You? Really, Cook County, how does it strike you the way “your” system works? Still wanna proudly serve on those grand juries?
After all, one wouldn’t want religion taught as religion, would one? That would be like teaching chemistry as the science of chemicals or French as the language of France.
An outstanding scholar denied full, complete tenure in the name of
They said: “Professor Brown promulgates a view of religion and theology that is not widely represented among the Divinity School community’s diverse views”—which is telling, given that what I had argued in my account of “why Milo scares students and faculty even more” was that students need practice talking about religion as religion, not just as a lens for talking about something else.
If a view isn’t shared by the diverse faculty, then wouldn’t adding it increase the all-important diversity? Probably, if it wasn’t for the White Christian thing.
In a strange way, the lowlifes at U of C have done Brown a favor. They’ve also shed new light on the nature of the Amerikan Diversitocracy. The esteemed Vox Day expounds:
I’ve been aggregating material together on two different topics. Not sure where any of it will go, if goes they does…
Anyway, the following article/video is part of one would be subject-thread. It’s about Priest abuse. Not the garden variety that garners decades of coverup and celebrity excuses. This one involves a Priest being run into hiding by death and torture threats – all for actually doing his job.
The whole thing is sickening. Pay attention around 2:23 in, where Fr. Kalchik says his experience is, “par for many in the near future.” Listen to that again. Please share this story.
Many now speak of an inquisition against the dark forces of modernity in the Church. Yet, as this experience demonstrates, the first salvo may come against the Faithful.
The time has come to turn the tables.
UPDATE: On the other (limp-wristed) hand, we could listen to cucks like THIS GUY and just roll over. That seems to have worked well in Detroit and Zimbabwe. Proof some Irish Catholics still haven’t assimilated 150 – 200 years in.
I assume they’ll develop and implement their own rigorous testing in lieu of mandatory SATs and ACTs.
For years, a debate has simmered at the nation’s universities and colleges over how much weight should be given to standardized tests as officials consider students for admission — and whether they should be required at all.
A growing number, including DePaul University, have opted to stop requiring the SAT and ACT in their admissions process, saying the tests place an unfair cost and burden on low-income and minority students, and ultimately hinder efforts to broaden diversity on campus. But the trend has escaped the nation’s most selective universities.
Until now. The University of Chicago announced Thursday that it would no longer require applicants for the undergraduate college to submit standardized test scores.
While it will still allow applicants to submit their SAT or ACT scores, university officials said they would let prospective undergraduates send transcripts on their own and submit video introductions and nontraditional materials to supplement their applications.
Or that. Transcripts from a government high school graduating 90% of seniors, of whom 25% can read (no fraud there!), and a cat video! Our future academic success is guaranteed!
This will have consequences.
Nothing is safe. The SJWs have invaded or conquered the AP Style Manual:
Stop saying offensive words.
That’s what the Associated Press (AP) is telling writers.
You see, the AP puts out a stylebook every year that includes universal guidelines for stylistic matters like punctuation, capitalization, and even word choice.
In a recent version, the AP encouraged writers to not use words such as “pro-life,” “migrant,” “refugee,” “Islamist,” and “terrorist.”
It’s completely ludicrous. Yet, sadly, it’s a sign of the times.
Writers aren’t all that fond of being bossed around and with good reason. Disrespect to the AP, following their suggestions, how would one espouse a pro-life opinion about migrants, not necessarily “refugees,” some of whom are Islamist terrorists??? Remember when liberals cared about free speech? Neither do I.
Newspeak, anyone? No thanks.
I have an older AP book (never felt the need to update annually). It sits pretty next to Black’s, Webster’s, Strunk and White, Brown’s, and Bartlett’s – all mostly unused.
Not that I have style, but I’ve always favored the HBB and Chicago guides. They also collect dust with a bunch of other books no one else is interested in.
One hopes for scant interest in the PC BS from the AP.
Bigger and better, collects more dust. UC Press.
