Wheaton College is a liberal-leaning institution of higher education that was originally founded on Christian principles. It has about 600 students per grade and costs about $31,000 per year (including room and board). It is located in Wheaton, Illinois, which is a town west of Chicago. In contrast with Grove City College and other conservative schools, Wheaton College uses the tenure system that makes it nearly impossible to fire professors who push for liberal indoctrination.

Wheaton College has perhaps the smartest student body among evangelical colleges, but professors and graduates associated with Wheaton sometimes defend abortion or advocate the theory of evolution.

For example, one presentation at Wheaton on the topic of abortion makes no mention of the medical and psychological harm that abortion causes to the mother, omits and distorts religious, Biblical, and economic arguments against abortion, uses deceptive terminology of abortion supporters, and conceals how abortionists do not fully disclose the adverse effects of the procedure to the patients.[1] The executive director of Emily's List, which channels tens of millions of dollars to pro-abortion politicians, is a graduate of Wheaton College and has been picked amid criticism by conservatives to be President-Elect Barack Obama's communications director.[2][3]

On the theory of evolution, a Wheaton professor promotes belief in the theory despite its fundamental conflict with Jesus's redemptive sacrifice.[4]

Wheaton displays "For Christ and His Kingdom" at its entrance and on the front of Wheaton's website.[5]
