God Fearing

From an essay by John Wilson in The New York Times Book Review.
Many years ago, when I was teaching English at a large state university, I sat through part of a faculty debate on the problem posed by evangelical groups who were "proselytizing." These professors, you understand, were fully committed to free speech -- they’d swear to it, so help me Mario Savio -- but they were concerned about the vulnerability of impressionable young minds to the seductive wiles of Campus Crusade for Christ, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship and other such evangelical organizations.
