Now listen up. This is some major league B.S. censorship nanny-state crapola.
The University of California system is refusing to take students from a Christian high school that teaches unorthodox views of biology and history. They say the students will be “unprepared.”
I’m not sure when I’ve heard anything quite so insincere. It doesn’t matter whether you slept through biology in high school, you will be aware of Darwin. In fact, these Christian students will have heard of Darwin and his theory, if only in the manner of refutation. Having been taught the “correct” version of the theory of origins has zero to do with one’s eventual performance at the university.
Imagine this scenario: Benighted, fundamentalist Christian student goes to a school teaching a highly Christocentric version of history, science, etc. He also happens to be quite intelligent and trots out an SAT score around 1450.
Question: Will this young man have any trouble putting up A’s in the University of Californa institutions? Noooooooooooooooooooooo.
Given that is the case, there can be only one reason for the policy recently announced. Intimidation. Welcome to secular totalitarianism lite.
