Et in Arcadia Ego

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jul 20, 2003

Rod Dreher has an interesting post on NRO's The Corner:

[Baylor University president Dr. Robert] Sloan and his administration are trying something exciting and fairly novel in Protestant higher education: broadening and deepening Baylor's commitment to Christianity and classical Christian scholarship (which means they're starting to dig, in a sustained and intentional way, into the historical roots of Christian philosophy and theology). I thought Sloan and his team did an admirable job of rebutting their opponents, who have been reduced to slandering Sloan as a "fundamentalist" (which is what liberal Christians call everyone to their right) because he believes Baylor should be intentional about maintaining its Christian identity, and should become a beacon of Christian intellectual endeavor in American higher education.

Sound familiar?
