College President to Entitled Students: Grow Up!

Craig HueyChurch, Education, Reality Alert2 Comments

As college students become easily offended and hurt, campuses have become overrun with safe zones, speech codes, and microaggression warnings.

Fed up with these touchy-feely students, Everett Piper, President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, rebuked a student who felt bad about a sermon Piper had preached. “He felt ‘victimized’ by a sermon [that] made him feel bad.”

Instead of feeling sorry for him, Piper in short order declared: “I don’t care about your feelings!” His latest weekly letter affirmed the true role of a university: to learn, not to “save” oneself from different ideas.

These demands to be coddled have induced college administrators to press for conformity of thought, where diversity of opinion is no longer allowed.  Piper is having none of it: “Do you want ideological fascism where you are required to conform?. . .That’s not academic freedom, that’s not intellectual liberty.”

His last sentence summed up the President’s mindset best: “This is not a day care. This is a university!”

  1. Yes, Neva, we need more men and women LEADERS like him. I’m sick of these college “leaders” coddling these adult-sized BABIES. I taught my two sons to be independent, do-for-yourself, no whining, get a job/career ADULTS. I used tough love on them. I disciplined them by saying something only ONCE, not over and over and over again, like so many permissive parents. If they didn’t do it, I got up from my chair or whatever and THEY KNEW I MEANT BUSINESS! I didn’t “coddle” them. I told them about not burning yourself on the stove, but I let them burn their fingers on the stove, get bloody noses from falling, etc. They LEARNED. They didn’t whine, whine, whine!
