    Wow, hes getting a taste of his own medicine. Atheist have been able to spread a logically dead ideas in the universities, aka indoctrination centers for years. No one thinks for themselves anymore.

    Taking offense is not the same as having one's feelings hurt. For example, I take offense to Christians who defend the slavery permissions in Lev 25, but I'm not upset by it or anything like that. I don't experience hurt over it. Instead, my 'offense' consists of a kind of frustration that Christians don't understand what kind of monstrousness they're defending.

    The best analogy I can think of right now is this: A Reformed Christian I used to argue with regularly online once said that the ante-bellum south was good for black people, and it was good that they were slaves to be fed and clothed, and more importantly (to him) Christianized . His online name was 'shotgunsmith', which is how I knew him. But if you search his real name Scott Terry, you can find a youtube video of him standing up and saying this publicly at some town hall meeting or something. Are your feelings hurt by this? Probably not. But, it is certainly offensive.

    This reminds me of a video you made nearly a decade ago (link at the end of this comment) about the intolerance of tolerance where you spoke about “the tolerance trick”. The way the that statement from the University sounded was “we support the right of faculty, staff and students to have their own views (paraphrased)”. Interestingly, the part they missed out was “provided those views are totally consistent with our views and agenda”. We live in very interesting times. https://youtu.be/KG_R9e60Wp4

    The overarching ideology isn't only constrained to race it is called Critical Theory and you can be critical, offended, and accuse anything, so you too can train to be an accuser. (See Rev: 12)

    If you are trying to kill a Christian's faith and become an Athiest, that seems to be "leading toward a particular conclusion."
