For years, far-left liberal universities have been brainwashing young minds into believing that the progressive way of thinking is the only correct way of thinking. Conservative thought, on the other hand, has not been well received.
Finally, one California professor in the heartland of “liberalism” saw victory after he was fired for daring to promote “dangerous” conservative views in the university classroom.
Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) who represented the professor in his two year battle, say Professor Eric Thompson was fired for bringing conservative views on marriage, gender roles and sexual orientation into Moreno Valley College where he worked since 2005.
According to PJI’s press release, Professor Eric Thompson, who was twice named “Faculty of the Year,” introduced conservative views to his students to challenge them to defend their assumptions and positions.
He also circulated the film Understanding Same-Sex Attraction which suggested homosexuality might be a choice rather than hard-wired.
Several students and colleagues considered Thompson’s apparent validation of non-liberal views to be “harassment” and “dangerous.”
Contrary to promoting academic freedom and critical thinking skills, however, the community college terminated Thompson’s employment due to the “immoral” nature of his discussions.
Brad Dacus, Founder and President of PJI, commented,
“The atrocious silencing of this professor, who merely offered a well-balanced presentation of conservative and Bible-based thoughts with prevalent social science teachings, had to be challenged. How many other voices of reason are being squelched in academic institutions by the far-left? College campuses have become a battleground for the future of our country, and our PJI legal team is whole-heartedly in the fight to defend the First Amendment rights of teachers and students sharing their religious viewpoints.”
Progressivism was introduced into our public schools and colleges in the early 1900s.
While many complain that conservative views have been forced out of the education system, few are doing anything to change the trend.
Doing the same thing and expecting different results will never reverse the damage that has been done to young minds in public education.
Therefore, it is more important than ever that conservatives stand up and begin to repair the damage that has been done to our youth by progressivism for over a century.
