Anthony Esolen, Providence College, and Vanishing Freedom

November 10, 2016

You really need to know about the uproar at Providence College. Professor Anthony Esolen had the effrontery to publish against the diversity agenda that’s showing up in most schools of higher learning. He is paying the price. If you think that you don’t need to worry because, after all, Providence is a Catholic institution, think again. There are plenty of people who would like to see this same thing happening at fundamentalist schools. Here’s part of Esolen’s response:

It is time to rebuild. There can be no more pretense of a culture around us that is Christian or that is even content with Christianity being in its midst. We must be for the world by being against the world: Athanasius contra mundum. The world is leveling every cultural institution in its path — we must save them or rebuild them from the dust, for the world’s own sake, and for God’s.
