An interesting article (“Why You Rarely See Your Professors In Church“) which appeared in the University of Michigan student paper was forwarded to me by its author, Kingson Man. Its tagline went something like this:
Studies show that professors are three times more likely to be atheists or agnostics than the rest of the population. Is a complete separation of church and state good for the University, or should you be worried about being indoctrinated by godless liberals?
Oh, University of Michigan! Oh, Bastion of Intellectuals and Aging Hippie Liberals! Is *nothing* sacred in your tolerant Halls, that even the beliefs of your Wizened Ones come under scrutiny??
Well……yeah. Actually its nothing new, and an interesting question to raise. There are also quite a few interesting and thoughtful comments at the end of the post. Check it out.
