wheaton going liberal?

November 20th, 2003 by Jason · No Comments

It was a momentous event for Westmont (the college I went to), and it seems to be an even bigger event for Wheaton. They’ve taken dancing off the list of banned activities, and are having their first all-school dance! I’m encouraged by this willingness on the part of Christian colleges to adapt their policies as culture changes. But I’m perplexed as to why this issue is causing so much hubub in the media. The news made it onto CNN, and a number of reporters have descended on the campus in search of a good story. Is it a sign of how odd most of America thinks evangelicals are, or an indication of curiosity on the part of our culture about the spirituality of these liberated dancers?
