Thank Goodness for A Little Common Sense on A College Campus

From Fox News: An Oklahoma university president has an incendiary message to politically correct students: Grow up or get out.
"This is not a day care," Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, wrote in a fiery blog post on the school’s website last week.
"This is a university!"
Thanks to a new wave of political protests on college campuses — like the recent upheavals at the University of Missouri, Yale University and Ithaca University — many colleges are scrambling to provide safe spaces and broader discussions about cultural and racial tensions on campus.
Piper, president of a private evangelical Christian university with about 1,200 students, is having none of it.
His post starts by railing against a student who said he felt “victimized” by an on-campus sermon about love.
"Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic!" Piper writes.
"Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims!...If you want the chaplain to tell you you’re a victim rather than tell you that you need virtue, this may not be the university you’re looking for."
Piper insists the school is "not a 'safe space,' but rather, a place to learn....This is a place where you quickly learned that you need to grow up!"
There is really nothing to say about this other than to say, "way to go", Mr. Piper.
