Sending our children to college is probably the worst thing we can do for their faith and it has very little to do with any atheistic or agnostic agendas that they might be pushing. No, it’s not the liberal agendas that are our adversaries, college started threatening our children’s faith all the way back in elementary school; way before they ever went to a wild fraternity party. Interestingly, it’s a system that we as Catholics help set up with every good intention, but which ultimately began to undermine it’s own foundation.
This cycle is even perpetuated by many of our Catholic schools which are often no more than college/career preparatory institutions. All of these schools, public and private load their children up with college preparatory material and extra curricular activities so that they can get a good start at a career; but at the expense of the family and church life. This is a self perpetuating system because the parents are never home anyways because they are ever giving themselves to their careers. In this system the work of forging families and communities of Christian living is made subservient to that of the dictatorship of the school system.
