My question is not about the particulars of the lawsuit, nor is it about the right of individuals to hold convictions consistent with their religious beliefs. But naming Wheaton College a "religious institution" as President Phillip Ryken did in his statement in the Daily Herald article, is where I am puzzled. Is Wheaton College's goal, its mission, to indoctrinate, or to educate?

Just asking.
