|This guy just don't care, kiddies.|
It's happened, ladies and gentlemen. At long last we finally have a university administrator willing to hit back at the generation of spoiled brats currently enrolled in our institutions of higher learning. Oklahoma Wesleyan University president Dr. Everett Piper has told the perpetually microaggressed to sack up and put on their big girl panties. From Fox News' Todd Starnes:
I mean it doesn't get much sweeter than that, folks. Dr. Piper's blog post is still up at the OKWU website. It is every bit as epically sweet as Todd Starnes described:
This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt “victimized” by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13. It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love. In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.
I’m not making this up. Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic. Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims. Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them “feel bad” about themselves, is a “hater,” a “bigot,” an “oppressor,” and a “victimizer.”
I have a message for this young man and all others who care to listen. That feeling of discomfort you have after listening to a sermon is called a conscience. An altar call is supposed to make you feel bad. It is supposed to make you feel guilty. The goal of many a good sermon is to get you to confess your sins—not coddle you in your selfishness. The primary objective of the Church and the Christian faith is your confession, not your self-actualization.I encourage you to read the rest of it. It's pretty awesome how he lays out exactly what OKWU will and won't do for it's students. He makes it very clear that the point of his university is to teach students how to function in the real world, not coddle to their every whim and desire.
Todd Starnes is right. We need many more administrators like Dr. Everett Piper.
