University Squabble

A few days ago there appeared in the news a story that got lots of attention. It was about a student at a wesleyan university who felt victimized by a message spoken from the gospel. The President of the university released a statement In response saying essentially “The purpose of college is not to provide a shield for offense..it is a place of learning and challenging yourself…”
One thing that confused a lot of people is that with it being a wesleyan college, why would the student feel victimized by a gospel-centered message? The student probably knew he was attending a wesleyan college, so therefore the teaching would be centered around a Christian worldview. So why, they ask, did he Inflate the issue if he was aware that the college he was attending is Christian and would have christian-centered lectures?
