Interesting listen for sure... I recently finished a course called history of christian higher education in America in my master's program. Throughout the course we discussed at length the secularization of American higher education throughout the late 1700-1850's. How ironic that Thomas Jefferson, the deist that started the first non-religious school (uni of Virginia), would be celebrated by religious individuals! Ultimately, the path of secularization and the separation of church and state was a major contributing factor in the decline of the religious state institution.
Thank you for enhancing my knowledge of an interesting topic!
