Two Audio Recommendations… Along with a Bar of Soap

I’ve got a couple audio recommendations.  Both are shocking, though for different reasons.

In the case of Douglas Wilson’s relatively recent talks on human sexuality at IU Bloomington, the event proved nothing short of shocking, not so much because of what he said, but how his comments were received.  I could try to describe how wildly inappropriate the students behaved- how bizarre and downright hostile they acted- but it would be better to simply listen and watch for yourself.  Wait until about halfway through the first lecture.  I can almost guarantee that you’ll be surprised.

After watching the videos, two things came to mind.  They are:

1)      Enmity
2)      “Tolerance”

Oh, and I should also provide a warning.  The material is both adult in content and explicit, particularly some of the questions asked during the Q and A.  Think rated “R.”

Sexual By Design

Now the next audio recommendation is shocking, not because of its resemblance to the Jerry Springer show, but because of how utterly weak the Muslim apologist’s arguments were.  In the following debate between James White and Zakir Hussain, which was formal and cordial, Mr. Hussain tried to establish the claim that the Bible prophesies the coming of Muhammad.

Consider his arguments for yourself.  And as with the above, I have but two things to say:

1)      Wildly Eisegetical
2)      Patently groping for something (anything!)… and to no avail

Is Muhammed Prophesied in the Bible

(The above link comes from James White’s Blob/website, which can be found here: http://www.aomin.org/  Do check it out.  Good stuff is found there.)

    Austin, thanks for posting this. I have one correction to your description of the event in Bloomington. It was not at all clear that the protestors, who acted so poorly really were IU students. Many in attendance recognized those disrupting the talk as part of our local “Occupy” movement of professional protestors, who hang around in Peoples’ Park playing checkers and bongos all day long. The talk was open to the public and seemed to attract a lot of non-IU people. I am sure there were some students in that mix but I do not think they were the majority by a long shot. Ironically, there were non-religious people in the audience, who were as frustrated by the disruptions as the Christians were.

    Austin: I’m about half way through with the Wilson videos. Thank you for posting this. Although I’m a farm boy who has never spent a single day in a college class, I’m not at all surprised. I’ve heard David Horowitz speak several times of how conservatives are treated at universities during speaking engagements. The subject could have been free-market economics or the dangers of Sharia law and the treatment potentially would have been roughly equivalent.

    Thank you Doug Wilson for doing this. And though I’m a bit surprised this made it past the G.R. Gatekeepers (as it is anything but gentle), I’m glad it did.
