Harvard, the Ivy League and the forgotten Puritans

(I was doing research into how the ivy league universities became secular and I ran across this article posted on WorldNet Daily, June 30, 2007)

How did the eight so-called "Ivy League" schools – Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Brown, University of Pennsylvania, Cornell and Dartmouth – go from being training grounds for Christian missionaries and ministers and respected citadels of higher education to what they are now – propaganda factories for every leftist, perverted, radical, tyrannical, failed ideology known to mankind? – Marxism, Darwinism, Freudianism, Higher Criticism, communism, multiculturalism, relativism, naturalism, positivism, socialism, liberalism, egalitarianism, feminist studies, gay studies, transgender studies, transvestite studies, outcome-based education, radical environmentalism, etc.

Did you know that America's oldest and most venerated colleges and universities like Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth were founded by the Puritans? Yes, those same Puritans who along with the Pilgrims were devout Christians and the original founders of America. What do we remember about the Puritans? Now, thanks in large part to the false prophets called "professors" of the Ivy League schools, we equate the Puritans inseparably with the Salem Witch Trials of 1692-95 where between 175-200 people were imprisoned, and, tragically, 20 innocent people were given the death penalty for allegedly being a "witch" based solely on the testimony of a few hysterical, emotionally unstable adolescent girls. This incident was indeed a dark chapter of history that has nevertheless been hyped up beyond reason by the secular left to erase the memory of the Puritans from the marketplace of ideas and from American history, from which they remain banished, even until this day. Read the story here.

This was the beginning of the deterioration of education which is now the controlling factor of education in our grade, middle, and high schools. The education system controlled by secular progressives, erroneously called liberals by conservatives, has produced most of our leftist journalists and educators. The progressives teach against conservatism, family, and Judeo-Christian values. Is it any wonder our children educated in the institution of this world are at variance with their parents and think them as antiquated and irrelevant to the world today.

This is why our electorate today is uneducated to the real issues, and naive about the goals and ideals of the progressives, who are creating a world of submissive unquestioning slaves for the new world order.
