Update (4/3 5:28 pm): Campus Reform reported that the Christian Privilege seminar may have been scrapped due to it not being listed on GWU's website:
The Christian Privilege session is just one of 15 training opportunities that was listed on the university’s website prior to being removed on Tuesday. The university has not provided an explanation for the change.
Original Story: I thought colleges and universities were supposed to be inhabited by people with at least half a brain. I have once again been proven wrong by the morons of supposed higher learning society.
George Washington University (GWU) in Washington D.C. is hosting a seminar Thursday to discuss and combat the three most dreaded words in the English language — “white Christian privilege.”
That’s right. According to the event’s page on the GWU website, the seminar is titled, “Christian Privilege: But Our Founding Fathers Were All Christian, Right?!”
The seminar even has “learning objectives,” which are the following:
- Participants will be able to describe what is meant by privilege overall and white privilege specifically.
- Participants will be able to describe the role of denial when it comes to white privilege.
- Participants will be able to differentiate between equality and equity.
- Participants will be able to list at least three examples of Christian privilege.
- Participants will be able to list at least three ways to be an ally with a non-Christian person.
Let’s see. “Privilege” — in this case — is what these crybabies who weren’t hugged enough as children display at these types of seminars. Privilege is what happens when you attend seminars like this with like minded people who will never disagree with you. That’s privilege.
Anyone who disagrees with the premises these asshats put forth are told that they are in “denial” or that they simply don’t recognize their own “privilege.” Essentially, your speech is shut down in circles with people like this. That’s called fascism.
“Equity” means being fair and impartial, which this seminar is clearly not. Are they being impartial to Christians? How about white people? I didn’t think so. People like this only believe things are fair when it benefits them. This comes from years of being coddled and told that they’re a “special little flower.”
News flash. You’re not special. You’re racist, anti-Christian zealots who won’t stop until the whole world bends to the will of your PC culture. Not gonna happen. At least not in my case.
Hmmm….”three examples of Christian privilege.” Would being the most persecuted religion in the world be a good example of Christian privilege? I mean, Christians are only being killed by the hundreds and thousands, but I wouldn’t expect a SJW to understand that. That comes in graduate school, maybe.
Here, learn a little something about "Christian privilege:
Hey, I could bring up the possibility of doing a seminar on “non-Christian privilege.” Yeah! That’ll put the pee in their Cheerios.
“Three ways to be an ally with a non-Christian person?” What does that even mean? Okay, show of hands. When you meet someone new, how many of you ask the person what their religion is before even getting to their names?
No? Nobody? Oh well.
The last “learning objective” clearly proves that this seminar is nothing more than to run down people of the Christian faith.
On the event page, one question in particular shows the seminar organizers’ animus towards Christians.
“How do we celebrate Christian identities and acknowledge that Christians receive unmerited perks from institutions and systems all across our country?” the seminar’s event page asks.
Little bit of background information here about the creator of the “training” seminar. Timothy Kane — who is the interim associate director for inclusion initiatives at GWU — is also a part of the GW LGBT Resource Center, “which provides information, education and resources as well as a community center for LGBT students on campus,” according to Kane’s bio on GWU’s website.
Is it just me, or are colleges just inventing positions for people to fill “diversity” quotas? Just a little food for thought.
If Kane is all about inclusion, then why is he missing a bunch of letters in the LGBTQIAPK alphabet soup? That’s very close minded of you, Mr. Kane — and not very Christian.
The persecution of Christians looks like it’s going to continue for a while, along with the indoctrination of young, impressionable minds into thinking that religion is a sham.
