Take a deep breath and calm down!
It’s not going to happen in the United States where the dogma teaches that co-ed dormitories and homes are healthy and good for young adults, even if the practice correlates positively with a skyrocketing increase in more virulent, sexually transmitted diseases.
According to the Associated Press, Turkey’s prime minister is going to segregate male and female students in university dorms and student houses.
Secularists are aghast. How dare Recep Tayyip Erdogan interfere with their lifestyles by imposing his rigid and conservative religious ideology upon them?
The answer is simple: The Prime Minister is an Islamic-leaning conservative who sincerely believes his duty is to support parental wishes in the education of their children and doing so is in the best interests of young people and the state.
Stateside, no President or Governor–even if he or she wanted to–could get away with implementing a similar moral standard. So, the secularists at the nation’s institutions of higher education needn’t fret.
More importantly, however, imagine the outcry if Presidents of Catholic universities and colleges in the United States–imitating John Garvey of The Catholic University of America–were to be so authoritarian as to impose their conservative religious ideology upon residence life?
