A pro-family advocate is calling the University of Chicago's decision to allow coed dorm rooms troubling.
The university announced the decision to parents in a letter that was sent in mid-December. The change in boarding rules will allow students of the opposite sex to reside in the same room, and the school says the decision was born from a student-led initiative. Students who wish to have a coed roommate will not need parental consent.
I was married at 18 years of age. My now husband and I were living together, then I heard on Christian radio that we needed to be married and we were married that year.
God bless Christian radio! _____________________________________________________
"God gave them over to a debased mind"
Romans 1:27-32 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

rob, all that which you have suggested might happen has already come to pass, so the harm done by these foolish decisions will have much greater consequences than anything which has already occurred on the college campuses. These campuses are becoming dens of iniquity rather than teachers of knowledge; corrupting rather than correcting.
"An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity." Proverbs 19:28
And what happens when the first woman, or man, is raped? Or there is emotionally crippling behavior over a period of time foisted by one student/gender upon another?? What will the Diversity of Chicago say in their defense???

Do you think this is a coincidence?
What about "1984," by George Orwell -- another coincidence?
Of course it's not coincidence.
Ideas have consequences, and many of the ideas and concepts (mostly anti-Christian and atheistic) used by Huxley as presuppositions in order to establish his "Brave New World" HAVE BEEN adopted by our post-modern culture. Therefore, the outcomes of these various ideas are strickingly similar to those consequences foreseen by Huxley ... and Orwell.
[Aldous Huxley's "vision" was closer to what has actually occured than was Orwell's even though elements of both "dystopian" worlds have been realized in part.]
This would be comical if it were not true. Ok let me get this, children whose parents are paying their way through school have the right to unbridle fornication because the voted on it. So how many daycare centers do they propose to open because of the pregnancies that will follow. Just because Johnny want's a gun at three do we have a family vote and give Johnny a loaded gun. Falling, falling into iniquity so next it will be gay people and pedophile mascarading as students.
The University system, whether private or public, is a joke and an affront to decency. Back in the late 90's, many have written about the so-called NEW ESTABLISHMENT and their (plural because it involves not just feminists and socialists, but this ideology is cut from a motley assortment of Self-Godhood) literal takeover of every former aspect of the OLD Establishment, i.e., a moral ethic in work and social life.
Morality being relative, I suppose this is called PROGRESS.
