I thought the Onion was supposed to be satire? Their post on how English students literally believe everything their profs say is literally true!
Joking aside, I remain grateful for my Christian upbringing which taught me from an early age to look at and engage with secular culture critically. I definitely did not go to university feeling like a “sponge;” I had a lens through which to filter all that my professors said and all that I read – the lens of Christ’s teachings about the transient nature of human wisdom vs. the absoluteness of God’s truth.
Although the university aims to produce critical thinkers, the overwhelming leftist and atheist political and philosophical leanings of the vast majority of professors create students critical of only what opposes their ideas.
