The Shocking Side of Yale and Other Elite Universities: Get Ready to Be Outraged

posted by Linda Mintle

I watched an interview on the 700 Club with Nathan Harden, a 2009 graduate of Yale University. What he shared broke my heart and it will yours too!

I advise you to watch it. It will open your eyes!

Harden, author of Sex and God at Yale: Porn, Political Correctness, and a Good Education Gone Bad, presented what I would call a wake-up call for all parents who have young adults at elite colleges or are planning to send them to those institutions.


Shocking to most of us, is SEX WEEK at Yale. Officially run by students, sponsored by the porn industry and sanctioned  by the University as “sex education,” sex week include activities  held on campus and in classrooms.

During Sex Week, porn stars provide graphic demonstrations on oral sex, violent sado-masochism acts, and other sexual practices. Sex industry CEOs are invited on campus for a marathon of sex-relatd film screenings, seminars and product demonstrations. Other elite schools like Harvard, Brown, Duke and Northwestern have also followed suit.

So imagine parents, your tuition dollars are funding classes that teach your daughter how to be a prostitute and give oral sex to strange men. At Yale, your son can watch a live demonstration by a topless porn star on all kinds of deviant sexual acts. And women, you are the target of violent sex and sadistic pleasure and are supposed to think of this as sexually liberating. Objectifiying or devaluing you as a person, well, it’s only entertainment. I feel violated just saying this.


I am personally outraged, offended and shocked that ANY higher education would allow such degrading, objectifying, and morally corrupt behavior to even be present on its campus.

Would Yale also like to fund the millions that will be spent on sexual addiction problems, broken marriages  and ruined lives that will result from believing the lies that are being presented as acceptable behavior. The fall out from hypersexualizing people has been well-documented. Sex addicts and sexually violent offenders continue to be on the rise, resulting in the loss of lives, epidemic diseases, legal costs and disturbed people who need mental health treatment. Reducing people to sexual urges, encouraging sexual pleasure at any cost, is hardly the character development we want our kids to experience.


Every alumni should protest and stop sending money.

Every parent should storm the once sacred halls and demand an end to such offensive activities.

Every parent should seriously consider NOT sending their students to these type of schools. What kind of education are you paying for–you deserve to know since you fund this.

Every Christian should intercede for the students, faculty and administrators of these institutions.

This is pathetic, disgusting and one of the reasons I sent my Salutatorian to a Christian College. Higher education is supposed to be a place of learning with academic standards. Instead we have the loss of moral leadership, women devalued and both genders led to believe that hypersexualism is normal and desired.


Sadly, Yale has lost its way.


“Hats off to Nathan Harden for exposing the shameful truth about how some of our nation’s finest universities have allowed themselves to become cesspools of perversion. Instead of teaching young people moral values and principles, “progressive” faculty and administrators actively promote moral degeneracy and perversion among the leaders of tomorrow.”

4 Reasons Not To Avoid Conflict

posted by Linda Mintle

I’m guessing that, “In this world, you will have trouble…” is not your favorite BIble verse to quote!

But it is true, with trouble comes conflict.  Conflict is always present in our relationships and many of us don’t like to deal with it. But here are 4 reasons you should not AVOID conflict:

1) Initially, avoiding conflict might lessen stress. This may be true for the moment, but when conflict is avoided it builds. The build-up of bad feelings can lead to resentment. Then the likelihood of an explosion increases and often results in hurtful ways of handling problems


2) One study noted that while people feel better avoiding at the time of the conflict, they don’t feel better the next day. In the study, physical symptoms and negative well-being were higher the day after the conflict in conflict avoiders than in people who confronted problems.[1] In other words, the impact showed up after the fact.

3) Researchers at the University of Michigan looked at conflict as it relates to longevity of life. They concluded that people who deal with conflict live longer. Specifically, they observed that when both partners in a couple relationship felt unfairly attacked and suppressed their anger at the other, they died earlier than couples who communicated their anger.


4) Another reason not to avoid conflict is that avoiding can lead to sudden eruptions due to a backlog of feelings that have been banked. I see this most often working with people with eating disorders. Other times, conflict simmers below the surface and leads to irritability.

Is Housework The Great Equalizer in Couples?

posted by Linda Mintle

Men, when was the last time you rolled up your sleeves and tackled the dishes?

Today’s modern family has women in the workplace and men much more involved in the home and parenting. This means men and women are figuring out how to divide the labor and conquer the household chores.

When it comes to marital satisfaction, at-home work seems to be a great equalizer. Husbands who pitch in and help around the house make their wives happy! That’s right, the quality of marriage is affected by men doing housework!


The division of labor matters. Husbands don’t have to work with their wives to get things done at home, just take on some of the tasks (April 2013, Journal of Family Issues).  It’s not the togetherness of doing house work, but the fact that men are participating that makes a difference.

So men, pull out those culinary skills, clean a few toilets, and mop that floor…it just might improve your marriage! Your wives will be impressed and think you care.

And men, don’t worry, your leisure time is not at risk. According to Pew researchers, you might be spending more time at work than your female counterparts, doing more around the house, but you still have more leisure time than your wife. So no complaints. Doing housework can only help your marriage!
