I've been saddened to hear many philosophies of the world seep into BYU instruction because of liberal professors who wish to "enlighten" students.

I whole heartedly agree with what is said here and thank the authors! As a mother of 10 I have been concerned with the direction BYU has been tending to lean towards and it's not as God centered as I always pray and hope it to be.

it has been along time that I wanted BYU to be free from Communism. it is known that those that go in start Christ centered and leave as a leftist Communist.

The last time I checked Doesn't BYU have an LGBT club? If they are willing to have an LGBT club. Then they should alow a pro-life club witch is very congruent with the teachings of the gospel. I think som of the faculty at BUY is acting like wimps and scarddy cats.

BYU is a religion centered university that should uphold the values of the LDS church, not the progressive liberal agenda!!!! Make it stop!!

We have a child attending BYU and I've been concerned about some of the things he has shared with us regarding his day-to-day activities on campus and in the classroom. From a distance, there appears to be a lot of "intellectualizing" of LDS beliefs and doctrines. I recall a devotional during my time at BYU when President Benson warned the student body and faculty about this and reminded us that God's ways often confound the wise and the intellectuals among us.

I believe BYU has strayed from a Christlike University.

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The world perceives BYU and the prophet for whom the school is named, to be a symbol of righteous example. By trying to conform to the sinful nature of the world is to go off the covenant path. BYU should be seeking to bring light and clarity to the covenant path, not shroud it with non gospel centered messages and acceptance. We are supposed to stand as a witness not by inclusion of sin but by condemning the sin and loving the sinner. Stand firm in the principles taught by our Savior Jesus Christ and invite all to do the same. Don’t build BYU on sand yo be washed away with the students you should protect and serve. Thank you.

30 years ago I suddenly found myself a BYU grad getting to know a lot of Ivy League graduates. It was gratifying to learn that my college education was as fine as any and better. BYU taught me to seek truth wherever it was to be found. Brilliant as so many of my friends were, most lacked the wisdom that came from gospel learning — learning that deepens and broadens all other learning, and guides us as we “go forth to serve.”

Among my most treasured wisdom came from my American Heritage class where we learned about America’s divinely-guided founding. The leaders, and principles, and conditions necessary to establish a nation where God could restore his church on the earth are miraculous. To teach less than this is ungrateful at best. I believe we’re only beginning to see the worst effects of it in our burning cities across the nation, and in the erosion of our First Amendment rights. If Ezra Taft Benson was correct in referring to our Constitution as “A Heavenly Banner,” then those who deny it are mistaken, with tragic consequences.

Our children chose BYU over other schools because they were desperate for an environment that was different from the world. They were weary of standing alone in their religious and political beliefs. Except for home and usually church, every environment was hostile. But they went off to BYU and found themselves still standing alone far too often, still facing hostility from peers and professors. It was a betrayal that we didn’t see coming, and it breaks our hearts. Students should not “enter to be indoctrinated.” Faithful church members fund BYU, trusting parents send their children there. Please restore BYU’s commitment to truth.
