Classroom Advocacy? A Christian Pacifist's Dilemma
Yoder, Michael L.
Christian Higher Education, v9 n1 p82-102 2010
Christian professors and professors generally, whether teaching at religiously affiliated or secular institutions, face an age-old question: Can one safely use the classroom to advocate one's personal position with regard to controversial issues or not? Positions examined include that of "value-free" science, "value-full" advocacy, and an intermediate Weberian position of "ethical neutrality." While the author writes from his position as a committed Christian pacifist and sociologist, the key question and choices listed will be equally relevant for Christian professors in all disciplines and with varying personal commitments on controversial issues of the day.
