Albert Mohler: The Overwhelming Lack of Diversity in Today’s Elite Universities


Late last year the campus newspaper at Yale—the Yale Daily News—published an article highlighting the astounding lack of worldview diversity on America’s college campuses today.

Their only demand is that you applaud them just as they applaud themselves.
