I read here and spirited debate talking with their full America live ministries on -- -- also conduct routes MacFarlane who is an author well radio -- Of world views on religion and one of the things we talked about before is -- how America is really.
A marketplace of religious ideas and get the bastion of it and an example of that is in Vanderbilt University.
I have an idea about this but.
The Vanderbilt University religious holy days of services for 2011 -- calendar included Witkin.
I guess for the first time and the reason it did is because it follows I guess the BBC's.
Of how they see.
And I'll tell you.
I don't know I mean.
What's that sound oh it's John Wesley spinning in his grave that's a Methodist school.
There's a -- we could say but I hate forgive me for just jumping in there.
Pandering was what this is -- let me read you this statement from a Vanderbilt a spokesman prince Saint Louis.
She's had USA today.
This -- a mechanism -- without holding be aware of these holidays of their -- students approaching them for example to reschedule exam.
To make up what they of course work or something like that because they are choosing to observe their religion on that day.
It'll at least that's what a lot of people don't understand this -- -- and those who dabbled in witchcraft in and it it's in some ways defies.
Definition because it's very fluid.
But -- has only existed since the 1950s there was a British man named Gerald Gardner who coined the term wicca and -- Even one encyclopedia of the -- history said He pretty much invented -- to satisfy his own.
I desired and it's creating a religion.
And so a lot of times -- now with -- want to be legitimized and recognized and we predate christianity they say it is true witchcraft predates christianity and it isn't any kind of taken it any kind of picnic and -- -- you know I'll grant you Satan was there in the garden of Eden I mean so.
It as long as humans have been around.
Tom -- delusion has existed but -- is a product of the twentieth century and to have it legitimized him be put on the same level was as Christmas and Easter and Christian holidays is ludicrous absolutely yes and -- -- event.
Absolutely you know this this situation with Vanderbilt I mean it doesn't surprise me at all and just like what was stated earlier you know we secular society.
Would go with what's politically correct over what's biblically -- any day.
But after all you know there's really not much that they can be you're probably will be done about it and so if they wanna say that that's their right to have.
We can Dana pagan days here at our university -- that I guess so -- it down but one thing -- do you wanna bring out.
About this issue is that you know some may applaud founder Vanderbilt for acknowledging.
The weekends and in pagan -- and I just -- -- say on behalf of evangelical Christians and those who are.
Biblically defined Christians.
That -- we also would like to acknowledge.
The weekends in the in the pagan not just 01 or two day a year top of the -- a holiday but actually in everyday life we went.
The weekends in the -- gets to know that they are welcomed.
In our churches in that we pray.
That out one day instead of instead of DNC around may pole that one day they'll be dancing around the throne of god.
In heaven when they -- one day because they repeated it -- -- their faith and trust in Christ -- so we want them to know that Jesus loves them.
