In Christo omnia nova serves as the motto for Providence Christian College. Directly translated from the Latin it means simply “in Christ all things new,” though there is a lot packed into this little phrase without a verb. It derives biblical warrant from several passages in the New Testament that describe Jesus Christ’s reconciling work in the world (II Cor. 5:17; I Cor. 15:22; Col. 1:15-23; Rev. 21:5), and it serves as a constant reminder both of the work that Providence is about and the One who is accomplishing that work.

To compound the problem of its arbitrary speech code, the august Dominican college provides links to “resources” to illustrate what may be deemed verboten. Among these resources—presumably meant to illuminate the mind of the Providence community—are the “Teaching Tolerance” program of the radical leftist Southern Poverty Law Center; a site offering psychological testing to see if the test-taker suffers from “implicit bias”; and a site , funded by National Science Foundation and McGraw-Hill Higher Education, that provides resources on various categories of prejudice including an appendix on “animals as a target of prejudice.” “Bias” means, apparently, anything the creators of these programs disagree with. Or anything the mob says it is.
