Thank You, Azusa Pacific University

With Evangelical Christians beginning to leave behind the false creation pseudo-science of con-artist Ken Ham, and the racist lies about Thomas Jefferson by David Barton, it was only matter of time before politically archconservative organizations would be next.

One such organization, Young Americans for Freedom had their application at Azusa Pacific University rejected, and now Breitbart.com’s conspiracy theorists are crying MARXIST foul. Now, APU is accused of being politically correct and liberal in the name of unity, an affront to its conservative evangelical credentials and identity. Conservative activists call, censorship! censorship! and MARXIST COMMUNIST even when the institution is an evangelical Christian organization. Let’s set the record straight, shall we? First of all, Breitbart.com was founded by an atheist, the late Andrew Breitbart who used religious people to promote his fascist, racist agenda. Breitbart and his friends appeared and work with white nationalists, and proudly worked with John Derbyshire, a man endorsed by Stormfront.

Breitbart.com and its Ayn Rand backing supoorters don’t know poop about church history, and especially about the multi-racial revival that took place on Azusa Street. Maybe they should do some reading up, but I highly doubt it.

I applaud Azusa Pacific University for their decision to celebrate their Pentecostal/Charismatic Christian heritage over and against white supremacy.

  1. APU took issue with the following language:
    [quote]“Are you tired of liberal ideas dominating your campus? Are you tired of liberal and Marxist professors indoctrinating your classmates? Do you want to advance conservatism?
    “If you answered yes, then you should start a Young Americans for Freedom chapter. YAF chapters make a difference by boldly advancing freedom and conservatism.
    “Radical feminists, big government bureaucrats, fringe environmentalists, race-baiters, Islamo-fascists, and run of the mill leftists are distraught that you would even think about promoting conservative ideas.”[/quote]

    Way to go APU that language is hurtful, harmful, and doesn’t speak to the complexities of the context that is pentecostal evangelicalism. A quick examination of the APU’s excellent “what we believe statement” (http://www.apu.edu/about/believe/) reveals that they are decidedly moderate and perhaps even “conservative” by many estimations and the characterizations by Beitbart.com and other organizations show the anti-intellectual and secularist assumptions of those organizations and how they are out of step with Christianity. Additionally there is not a Young Democrats or Young Republicans club either. Seems like APU is being rather consistent to their beliefs.

    Additionally looking at the CV’s of the 65 faculty members in theology none of them could qualify as being any of the negative terms by YAF
