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!”
