The University of Louisville opened a social justice library. We hear a lot about social justice today, but what is it? According to Scott Allen, it’s an ideology where “human identity is entirely socially constructed,” and people are simply “puppets of social forces and powerless to rise above the communities to which they belong…. And “The idea of the person as an individual, with agency, creativity, and God-given rights and responsibilities is anathema to proponents of Social Justice ideology.” That’s a mouthful, but social justice is contrary to both biblical principles and America’s founding ideals. Ironically, U of L’s dedication of such a library undermines the values that make freedom and liberal democratic society possible.
