Progressive Thought? More like Oppressive Intolerance

 

Many colleges today unfortunately see themselves as the standard bearers of "progressive thought" and "equality." Following the trend of popular culture, universities believe it is their role to spread the acceptance of same-sex "marriage" as well as new theories on gender and race relations. When students refuse to acquiesce to their ideologies, however, colleges often react in unjust and intolerant ways. LifeSiteNews reports on one such case:

ThinkstockPhotos-86531925Gender and homosexuality politics are among the areas the professors are looking to influence the young people in their classes, along with race and immigration ideology.

The affronting terms that could land students in hot water in a number of Washington State University classes include “illegal alien” and “illegals,” CampusReform.org reports, but also considered oppressive and hateful by one teacher are the very definitions of gender, “male” and “female.”

A Marquette University student was prohibited from articulating his Biblical view of marriage last year, and a tenured professor was fired from there last year as well for voicing his view in support of marriage.

Johns Hopkins University denied a pro-life student organization recognition in 2013 until threatened with legal action.

Religious freedom banners were prohibited at Sinclair College in Ohio a year earlier.

A lawsuit was filed against Los Angeles Community College District in 2009 after a professor censored and threatened to expel a student who had given a speech on marriage and his Christian faith in a public speaking class. The professor had also told his class they were a “fascist (explicative)” if they voted for California’s Proposition 8 in defense of marriage.

It is a great hypocrisy when the so-called proponents of "tolerance" become worse than the very people they claim to be fighting. Help us expose these deceitful ideals and bring the hypocrisy about "equality" to an end.
