University Madison Students Want Religious Freedom for Muslims… But Not Christians!

By Team Crowder | 12 Mar 2017

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: college is filled with walking butt gaskets. It’s low on the list of great investments right now (read Dear High School Students: Don’t Go to College. No Seriously…). After all, no need to pay to be surrounded by SJW craziness when you can join us as we laugh at them for free. Let the giggle fits commence…

Welcome to UW-Madison. Or, welcome back. Crowderheads have been here before (see Univ. of Wisconsin Offers Class on ‘Problem of Whiteness’ and University of Wisconsin Creates Absurd New List of ‘Racist Microaggressions’). When it comes to act of moronic political correctness, ’tis a frequent offender. Today we bring you the latest in, “As Religious Freedom Turns.” UW-Madison students seem to think some religious deserve rights, while others not so much.

State calls Christian counseling ‘harassment’

Veteran pastor dismissed, religious advice equated with sexual abuse

The head of Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice has doubled down on his agency’s decision to dismiss a pastor who had been a longtime volunteer counselor to troubled youth, describing Christian counseling as “harassment.”

The state, according to the letter from Bob Hayter, commissioner of the state agency, pursues “a zero-tolerance policy against any form of sexual abuse or harassment by staff, volunteers or contractors.”

That argument justifies, he suggested, the dismissal of ordained Christian minister David Wells, who had provided voluntary spiritual counseling and mentorship to juvenile inmates under the control of the Department of Juvenile Justice for years.

State Orders Christian Baker To Go Through “Training” After Refusing To Decorate Cake For Gay Wedding

We are starting to see more and more examples of religious business owners being asked and sometimes forced to violate their convictions and basically abandon free market principles to provide services for couples who live lifestyles their religion condemns.

In some situations, the bakers are wrong and in some situations they have every right to ask couples to go to a different bakery.

In the following case in Colorado, a Christian baker was willing to bake the cake but just not decorate it and in this specific state gay marriage wasn’t even legal at the time.

That wasn’t good enough for the state government and they ended up sending the bakers to a form of “sensitivity training” as punishment for their crime.

Officials hand parents letter saying child’s attendance ‘not a good fit’

A preschool in the Denver area has booted a 4-year-old from its classes, telling her parents her attendance was “not a good fit” after the parents questioned the cooperative’s curriculum promoting homosexuality and transgenderism.

R.B. Sinclair of Aurora told the Denver Post her daughter was thrown out of Montview preschool and kindergarten.

“I think at this age they don’t know what bias is,” she told the newspaper. “They could have kids from Mars and they would still play with each other. It’s not that she isn’t exposed to diversity, because it is the world we live in, but how are they having these conversations?”

Cops cite preacher for ‘offending’ student

‘That’s our job – to make sure that doesn’t happen’

A Texas cop issued a citation to a preacher for “offending” a University of Texas at Austin student

An Orwellian nightmare became a reality for an evangelical preacher this week when a cop near the University of Texas at Austin issued him a “disorderly conduct” citation for “offending” a student.

An intern with Campus Ministry USA was confronted by multiple police officers on Tuesday and informed he would be written up for offending a student. Video of the incident soon went viral on YouTube.

“We had somebody that was offended by the gestures you were making,” the officer said. “And that’s our job – to make sure that doesn’t happen, because these are students just walking in this mall right here. So the job here is to write you up as a citation, disorderly conduct, for offending someone.”

The preacher asked how it was against the law to use biological terms like “penis” during a presentation on science-related issues, but rebuffed.

“It doesn’t matter, freedom of speech. Someone was offended – that’s against the law. I don’t want to argue with you. That’s against the law.”

Across the West, Attacks on Religious Freedom Accelerate

Across the West, Attacks on Religious Freedom Accelerate
 
As religious freedom continues to come under ruthless attack by governments from Communist China and North Korea to the Middle East, major new threats to religious liberty are increasingly emerging across the West. While early warning signs have been flashing in the United States, across Europe efforts to infringe on the right to freedom of religion are even more advanced. If left unchecked, religious-freedom advocates warn that the controversial plots have the potential to eventually unleash mass abuses and human-rights violations by governments even in formerly free nations.

Transnational European entities, for example, have been seeking to crack down on what are being referred to as “new religious movements.” More than a few national governments in the region have even criminalized certain forms of religious expression — especially criticism of homosexual behavior or Islam, which in some parts of Europe can even be punished with prison sentences. In the United Kingdom, as The New American reported in late 2012, official discrimination against Christianity has also sparked cries of hostility toward religious liberty.
