True cost of college
The article by Jennifer Harper entitled “Survey: Parents give college costs short shrift” (Oct. 23 edition), should have been titled “Parents give colleges short shrift.”
At least in my case, the big issue was not the money, although college costs have gotten insanely high. I told my three children not to go to college because of what colleges are teaching. When I went to college in the 1960s, I had a few professorswhodeliberatelytriedtopervertme. Onetriedtogetmeinvolvedinpornographyand immorality. One tried to get me to believe that the universe created itself and that life spontaneouslygeneratedfrompondscum.Onepublicly laughedatmeformybeliefinGodandHislaws, and belittled my faith in front of the class. And one seemed determined to get me to hate my country and its history. That was the 1960s.
Well, look at colleges now! The few good privatecollegesaretooexpensivetoevenconsider. Allthestatecollegesaretotallycommittedtodestroying the faith and morals of every student. Do you think I want to risk my children in any ofthem?Insteadofasurveyoncollegecosts,how about doing a survey on how many good Christian kids going to college wind up losing their faith, their morals, and their good conservative family values, and end up flaming liberals who hateeverythingourcountrystandsforanddon’t evenknowwhatourcountrywasfoundedupon.
