Today's Maxwell Quote

From We Will Prove Them Herewith (1982), 82-83:

Many once church-related institutions, however, have long since become indistinguishable from other universities and colleges, keeping the ceremonial robes without the theology, the pomp without the purpose.

As the contest intensifies in this final summer, education is in the center of the fray as to what are and are not the basic beliefs at the center of it all. Secularists appear to be carrying the day, often because they go unchallenged as they break with tradition. We are all "free to choose," including educators, but the consequences of our choices will be felt, and this is the case in education, for there are no immunities from the consequences of our choices.
