The Racist Speech a Christian College Doesn’t Want the Public to Hear

Ryan Bomberger Jan 11, 2019

This is the tale of two lectures at Wheaton College, a Christian evangelical college in the suburbs of Chicago. One was given in September 2017 and the other in November 2018. Though only a year apart, the responses to the two presentations were universes apart. The reaction is very telling and tragic for those who believe that a Christian education is different than a secular one.

The first speech (listen to excerpts here) was given by Dr. George Yancy, a philosophy professor at Emory University (huge thanks to Jamie Dean at World Magazine for an excellent article on this and uncovering actual audio recording). It was sponsored by Wheaton’s Philosophy department and held in the esteemed Billy Graham Center on campus. It was entitled: “A Post-Racial America? White Gazes and Black Bodies." It can only be described as an expletive-laced, pornographic, racist, anti-biblical screed. His theme? “To be white is to be racist.”..........

Then there’s that second speech............To Read More....

My Take - So many supposedly Christian religious institutions are teaching or promoting things that are completely antithetical to what they allegedly believe, including the idea the Bible is the word of God.  These institutions are a disgrace and at some point you would think they would have some serious consigns about their heretical attitudes.  Don't you think?   Actually, I don't think they do.  Since it's my opinion they don't believe in God they have no concerns of being nothing more than religious hucksters.
