Promoting Critical Thinking Is Dangerous

What is that feeling you get when you come across a problem you have to solve, fear?  Some think so and will use the lack of discernment by others to push an agenda proven to be detrimental to a country’s well-being.

After a legal battle lasting nearly two years, a conservative college professor reprimanded by his school for having “dangerous” views on marriage has won the fight.

The Pacific Justice Institute stated that an arbitrator ruled in favor of Moreno Valley College sociology professor Eric Thompson. According to WND.com the lengthy legal battle entailed a series of depositions and administrative hearings, as well as an arbitration that lasted for several days.

Thompson was reprimanded by the institution several years ago for discussing topics that included marriage, homosexuality, and gender roles with his students.

During the course of his class the professor reportedly “also circulated the film ‘Understanding Same-Sex Attraction’ which suggested homosexuality might be a choice rather than hard-wired,” the institute stated.

According to PJI, the sociology professor introduced conservative thought regarding controversial matters as a way to challenge his students to defend their assumptions.

Numerous students and colleagues viewed the way in which Thompson seemingly endorsed non-liberal beliefs to be a form of “harassment,” come even calling it “dangerous,” PJI mentioned.

“Instead of promoting academic freedom and critical thinking skills, the community college swiftly terminated Thompson’s employment due to the ‘immoral’ nature of his discussions,” said the group.

PJI President Brad Dacus said 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.”

He asked, “How many other voices of reason are being squelched in academic institutions by the far-left?”


Isa 5:17-24
18 Woe to those who drag iniquity with the cords of falsehood,
And sin as if with cart ropes;
19 Who say, “Let Him make speed, let Him hasten His work, that we may see it;
And let the purpose of the Holy One of Israel draw near
And come to pass, that we may know it!”
20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight!
22 Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine
And valiant men in mixing strong drink,
23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!
24 Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble
And dry grass collapses into the flame,
So their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as dust;
For they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
