Today, when many liberal, Christian authors decry large-scale injustices ignored or avoided by many conservative, Evangelical Christians, a proverbial elephant stands in their living room. A glaring oversight exists amidst cries for 'workers rights' or 'gender equity' in the modern church. One only has to conduct a brief comparative study of tuition costs at Christian seminaries in America to see what is hidden in plain sight. Once this is done, an honest question emerges: "Why do some of the professed 'progressive,' 'liberal' or 'modernist' seminaries have the highest tuition costs? This is not the time or place to evoke specific names or places. I will leave that conclusion to my saavy readers. But I ask, "Isn't there something hypocritical about academic institutions devoted to lofty ideals like 'social justice' or 'wars on poverty' that, at the same time, charge exhorbitant prices? Likewise, doesn't it bother the casual observer in the least that many Baptist seminaries labeled as "fundamentalist" or "ultra-conservative" keep their tuition costs low and affordable? Many of these conservative places are not widely known for emphasizing economic injustices in the public square, but in actuality they manage to keep their tuition and fees within a range that poorer, struggling seminarians might be able to afford. A retort that scholarships and loans are available in mainline sectors just won't do. It's a weak rationalization at a time when these sources of "relief" cannot keep up with the rising tuition cost at the "more reputable" and "progressive" seminaries. Considering seminary programs, which ones are REALLY fair and equitable from a Christian standpoint. Which ones are truly elitist. I wonder.
