The leaders of Cal State are trying to drive the Christian witness from the campus.
The claws of today’s insane definition of “tolerance” and discriminatory “non-discrimination” get bloodier and bloodier.
Here’s the headline from the California Political Review: “Cal State de-recognizes Christian group for wanting Christian leaders.”
What a horror. A Christian group at Cal State Stanislaus has the nerve to want a Christian—not a Jew or Muslim—as the leader of their organization. Does this ruling by the outrageous Cal State Stanislaus Associate Vice President Tim Lynch mean that a Jew can be/should be the president of the campus Muslim Student Association?
Why does our confused Governor Brown insist on allowing bigotry on our government college campuses? Our campuses are rife with “tolerance”, think the Muslims would allow a Talmud believing Jew to be their leader? Why should they? How about the son of Jerry Falwell as the chair of the campus LBGT chapter? Or maybe the son of Congressman Steve Kin as the head of the Mexican Student Association?
Freedom of association? Another Constitutional right not allowed in California.
The writer quotes from an article by Campus Reform:
California State University is no longer recognizing the Cal State Stanislaus chapter of Chi Alpha, a Christian student group, because the religious group required its leaders be Christian.
The system decided this requirement violated a Cal State University system-wide executive order.
“What they cannot be is faith-based where someone has to have a profession of faith to be that leader.”
“What they cannot be is faith-based where someone has to have a profession of faith to be that leader,” Cal State Stanislaus Associate Vice President Tim Lynch explained to CBS Sacramento. “Every club is allowed to establish its own standards for how leaders are selected—as long as it’s non discriminatory.”
Lynch did, however, acknowledge that fraternities and sororities are given a “gender exemption” to the policy.
The Cal State system generated controversy in 2014 when it derecognized the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship group for similar leadership requirements.
Christianity gave unbelief a voice, and now unbelief is silencing its opponents, one by one.
