He Could Do No Other

In case you hadn’t figured this out, I’m grading final papers–tonight’s harvest being applied ethics. After spending the day making fun of my applied ethics students on Facebook, I turn at last to the final paper of the evening, a dense, single-spaced essay written by a transfer student. The author starts by telling me that while he found my course very interesting, applied ethics just isn’t his thing–and then proceeds to write a sophisticated, cogent, but totally off-topic paper on the problem of evil, written from “a Protestant Christian worldview.”
