Even within our university, a university dedicated to the true thinking, writing, and speaking of true words, there is evidence of the leprosy of language, palsying jargon, and the putrifying sores of manipulative and counterfeit words…Manipulation of people is facilitated by the manipulation of language, which is the most precious gift of God, who speaks His words to us.
