Pro-life/Christian support at Virginia Tech
Sometimes we focus so much on the antics of those who oppose us, we forget to report on the many pro-life students who support our presence on campus. They are so thankful that they are not alone.
“Thank you! I am glad you are here!”
“I’m glad those other students [finally] have something to be upset about.”
“If you support this, why don’t you want the advertisement?”
“Why are these people saying you should leave campus? It is just [the truth]!”
“These are just pictures. If you are upset, that’s good.”
“This is stirring up conversation; this is good.” (Christian dining hall employee)
Young Christians believe the truth (at some level), but they don’t know how to answer the full-frontal assault that is the atheistic campus culture. The modern church has never taught them how to articulate and defend the Christian Faith with logic and reason, so they fear the Faith is illogical and unreasonable. What a tragedy.
The most effective evangelical organization on campus is often the College Republicans, because those kids know how to articulate the truth without fear.
The two biggest threats to our children … your children … are Dawinism and abortion. Darwinism is an assault on the intellect; abortion is an assault on the flesh. Yet the typical evangelical church (e.g., your church) does almost nothing to address these threats.
For example, have the youth at your church seen the movie, “Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed?” No? That’s a scandal. And if you have never watched it yourself, that’s a scandal, too.
Anyway, the intellectual needs of young Christians has been ignored by the modern church, but when we show up with GAP, they don’t feel so alone.
