Administrative Assistant For Messiah

Just found this job advertisement on the homepage of one of these Christian colleges. The kind that require an advanced degree, several years of experience, and "evidence of an authentic Christian faith"; in other words, Jews need not apply. Which is kind of funny, considering that the original Messiah job went to one of us. Good thing they "actively seek diversity among our employees." They'd find more of it if they sought it outside, instead.

I think it important that people should be able to set up a school that conforms to some governing idea they share, like a religion, a pedagogical philosophy, or even gender. But it also seems to me somewhat self-defeating to have quite so many Christian colleges and universities as the U.S. does at present. From the website of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities: "According to the U.S. Department of Education, there are over 4,000 degree-granting institutions of higher education in the United States. These include 1,600 private, nonprofit campuses, about 900 of which define themselves as 'religiously affiliated.'"

In addition to their full knowledge of the revealed truth, these schools should also be congratulated on their having recently discovered Black people:

In the past...
Blacks Still Not Wanted At Many Christian Colleges
...whereas, now:
Christian Colleges Grow More Diverse

I close with a zinger from my homie. Remember how Nietzsche said that Luther had destroyed the Renaissance? Matthew 18:3 sums it all up for you:

Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven


  1. > "evidence of an authentic Christian faith"; in other words, Jews need not apply

    huh? i don't see it that way at all. i think it means a lot more than "Jews not need apply". i think it also means that athiests, pagans, buddhists, muslims, agnostics, etc., need not apply. or in other words, pretty much what it says: non-christians need not apply.

  2. when i first read that headline, i thought it was something much more intriguing: administrative assistant for some guy going around claiming to be the messiah. now THAT would be an interesting job..

  3. Our values as human beings should still be there despite of the difference of our faith and principles in life.
