A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

More on Higher “Education”

Posted by Godefroi on January 17, 2008

Providentially, another article appeared today at Front Page Magazine illuminating just how intellectually and morally dangerous the college classroom is becoming.

 

Aaron, son of a Lutheran Pastor, is a devoted Christian himself, and a serious student of history aiming to teach on the high school level. Professor Gronowicz’s class was one of the requirements. But according to Aaron, instead of teaching a survey course on Modern Western History, he spent an entire semester teaching secret societies and conspiracy theories as fact, and other topics that had no relation to the publicized course content. The course essentially surveyed secret societies emphasizing the Order of Skull and Bones, claiming that this Yale University fraternity boasting such notable past members as George W. Bush, John Kerry and other government figures, is a secret order that rules the world. Another student remarked that he hadn’t learned a thing because the entire course was an endless diatribe against Bush.


Aaron expressed his opinions during classroom discussions in defense of America. He argued that these secret organizations and conspiracy theories are based upon fabrications and lies to justify calumny against our great country. Raising his voice to a shout, Gronowicz asserted that it’s not possible for anyone to find explanations to justify America and it’s immoral actions. He singled out Aaron’s religious faith making such statements as, “it is impossible to be a free thinking educated person and believe in a God.” Aaron responded to the slanderous innuendo that all religious people are ignorant by offering good examples of highly educated God-fearing men and women, in order to argue against the crude insults directed at him, but Gronowicz would shrug them off as exceptions to the rule. This professor’s classroom manner conveyed pure religious discrimination that violates professional academic standards of conduct as well as First Amendment rights.

Regarding 9/11 conspiracy theories, Professor Gronowicz stated that the destruction of the World Trade Towers was an inside job the Bush administration knew about way ahead of time because of the close family ties between Bush and the Bin Laden families. As proof that the government orchestrated 9/11, he stated that Tower Seven was not directly hit, but it came down nonetheless, by planned implosion because the government was trying to cover up secret documents concealed within its vaults. He also asserted that first responders where not given the proper safety equipment. However Aaron was a union tradesman working as a first responder at Ground Zero and went about overturning the nutty professor’s erroneous statements and false premises one by one.

As Aaron argued his points in the classroom discussions, his saw his grades gradually plummet to an “F”. Another student who had a complaint about his grade, who never received lower than a B+ in other classes, said that he received a C- in the course because Gronowicz lost his midterm, which hurt his GPA and forced him to repeat the class. Still other students mentioned various complaints about this professor’s conduct and strange grading system.

Aaron feels that no student should have to go through the lengthy process he endured merely to get a fair grade based upon his course work, not upon political opinions or religious beliefs.

 

I agree.
