In the post “A Cost of Apathy,” the Christian college of Heritage Christian University was discussed. In the post, a fundraiser for the college in which sponsorships as high as $25,000 were available and that featured former first lady Laura Bush was discussed. In the post, a call for a cancellation of financial support for the university was called for should they not cancel the event in light of her most recent comments in support of gay marriage and abortion legalization.
Since that time Heritage has taken the advertisement for the fundraiser off of the front page of their website and it is not to be found as of this posting on the website. Also, from very trusted sources and individuals close to the situation I have learned that Heritage seems to be moving toward what would amount to a proper response by a Christian institution. Let’s hope this is correct.
This entire incident has me wondering a great deal about the entire idea of “Christian” colleges. While I have given thought about this matter in the past, in my recent studies I am failing to find any Biblical backing for a church sending financial support to such institutions. More on this to come.
