Today was tiring. My history teacher felt obligated to explain religious people to the class. "These people actually believe they should love God above all else, even family!" I really have never realized that basic religious thought is completely foreign to modern people. Total love of God was probably the very first thing I was taught in life.
Then in my humanities class I got to hear about how gender roles are changing and more men will be "stay-at-home dads" in the more "equal" future.
Oh man, I had some fun professors in undergrad.
One was openly anti-Christian (ex-Baptist with Buddhist sympathies) and very involved in political activism, including the local Occupy movement that consisted of like a dozen people. I think it was the first day of the first class I ever had with him, as I would go on to have several more, and he told the class a joke at religious people's expense. It went something along the lines of: "What's the difference between praying to God and talking to yourself? You get no answer, but at least talking to yourself you don't expect one." Or something like that, I forget the exact wording of the punch line. Anyway, comments against Christianity were sprinkled throughout all of his primarily American history courses, lol.
Another was a political science professor. He started off the first day, yet again, of class with a question. "Who all in here is Christian? If so, raise your hands." I was fluctuating between militant atheism and deism at the time so I (luckily) didn't, but one woman did raise her hand out of the entire class of a dozen or so people. He told her directly, "Be warned, you will probably be offended in this class." Pretty much explaining that he didn't care for Christianity, etc. Our readings included various political texts from Christians, ranging from Biblical stuff to things like the Mayflower Compact, in which we would analyze and harshly critique them for effectively being stupid with stupid views. Also non-Christian things like the Hammurabi Code, through which he would less-than-subtly argue that Christianity was derivative. That woman dropped the course by the end of it, or at least stopped showing up after a few weeks.
I also had an atheist professor from a atheist/political dissident family that had fled Syria decades ago, where he was ultimately raised in Britain. Oddly he was married to a Syrian-raised Muslim woman, from a devout Muslim family herself. Interestingly he was only really knowledgeable of Catholicism and hardly knew much about Protestantism, but probably as a result he'd drop some pretty negative comments about the Catholic Church or Catholicism in general throughout his classes (which were usually about Islam or Islamic history). He would sometimes follow them up by saying, "I realize I'm pretty critical of Catholicism, but just wait until I talk about Islam." Although, he never did make as strongly negative comments about the latter.
