A student at UC Berkeley is under attack for defending her faith

56

America’s universities have become increasingly more hostile toward Christians.

School administrations and student bodies alike are forcing Christians to shut up – or else.

And now this university student senator is under attack for defending her faith in this simple way.

Isabella Chow is one of the only Christians on the Student Body Senate at UC Berkeley. And now she is facing threats from radical LGBT protesters for simply defending her Christian beliefs.

The Associated Students of the University of California Berkeley, a student governing body, recently had a bill to vote on regarding “transgender rights.”

The bill was brought to them by the “Queer Alliance Resource Center,” and it asks the student body to condemn Trump for defining gender by sex.

Chow simply abstained from voting for the bill, and now her fellow classmates are demanding that she resign.

Some are even calling her a “horrible person” and an “imbicile.”

The San Francisco Chronicle writes:

A student senator at UC Berkeley abstained from a vote supporting transgender rights last week, then took a moment to explain her thinking. Now, more than 1,000 people have signed a petition demanding that she resign from student government or face a recall.

Hundreds packed a Senate meeting Wednesday night to insist that she go. On social media, students labeled her a “horrible person” and a “mental imbecile.” Her campus political party severed ties with her. And the Daily Californian, UC Berkeley’s storied student newspaper, ran an editorial critical of her statements and refused to publish her written defense.

The uproar began Oct. 31, when the Queer Alliance Resource Center asked the student Senate to pass a bill condemning the Trump administration for considering a legal definition of gender that would require it to match a person’s sex at birth…

Reading a five-paragraph statement explaining her decision, Chow told her 18 fellow senators, who all voted for the bill (another was absent), that discrimination “is never, ever OK.”

“That said,” Chow continued, voting for the bill would compromise her values and force her to promote groups and identities she disagrees with.

“As a Christian, I personally do believe that certain acts and lifestyles conflict with what is good, right and true,” she said. “I believe that God created male and female at the beginning of time, and designed sex for marriage between one man and one woman…”

Student Senator Chow was never given the opportunity to defend herself.

The campus newspaper would not publish her op-ed defending her position and her beliefs.

Leftists are engaging in a campaign to “de-platform” Chow so they can have free rein to smear her and rile up their “mob” protesters.

In an interview with a local TV news station, one protestor even said Chow’s beliefs are “not valid.”

The school administration – which at one time professed to support the First Amendment – has not taken any action to condemn protesters threatening Chow for her religious beliefs.

UC Berkeley recently updated their “Free Speech” policy with the stated claim to protect First Amendment rights of all students and faculty.

Yet once again, the radical left is getting their way in censoring anyone that disagrees with them.

Do you think Isabella Chow should be forced to resign from the UC Berkeley Student Government for her Christian beliefs?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. No, Chow should not resign or be forced to resign. What exactly is UC Berkeley doing to uphold one’s first amendment rights? This LGBTQ community is ruining the lives of children from grade 1 through college years. God created two sexes, male and female, and those who feel non-binary are totally in need of psychiatric help. We need to reopen the mental institutions in this country. There are millions of crazies running the country.

    • You are so correct. This country needs to open mental institutions, lots of them. Every single mass killing was carried out by mentally ill people, then also we need room for all these other crazies who can’t figure out what sex they are, or if they were born on earth or Mars,more than likely Mars. But yes, we do need to open mental institutions, maybe all these empty buildings should be refurbished to house these ill people. UC Berkeley should be changed into one of these institutions since most of the students attending should be institutionalized.

    • this college has been against America since the vet nom conflict its problem is its administration and teachers who is worthless

    • I think it is time to start cutting federal funding for any school that tries to suppress freedom of speech if that school, in fact, is accepting the money. The FIRST AMENDMENT applies to all Americans. When the Antifas start rioting to shut down free speech Federal Marshalls should intervene as this is a violation of federal law. It is “felony rioting” or so it was called when they rioted at Trump’s inauguration.

      • Utting funding for these radical institutions is probably the only thing they will understand. They are so used to living on someone else’s dime that cutting funding would probably force some to actually work for their overblown paychecks.

    • some children, perhaps one in 100,000 come out as hermaphrodites, or male and female. Learn your physiology before you start speaking for God.

      • frogs does come hermaphrodites due to men’s evil science mal-intention but never ever on humans. that’s why God send the flood because men was already playing with manipulation. This, isn’t new. dangerous!

      • Babies come into this world with rights-period! They are born either female or male-Period! Yes-they can be born with an extra organ or arm etc-but the doctor can tell if the baby is a female or a male-Period! We need to Stop harassing Christians in all of our Universities!! She has her rights too-Berkeley is an awful school and since Nam is has been a liberal school with very weird people that go there-many liberals out number conservatives at that school-does NOT mean Chow should never resign-Period! She also has her rights to be heard! I am sick of BIG-Mouthed Liberals that bully our Christians!

      • “one in 100,000 come out as hermaphrodites, or male and female” so what is your point? And many are corrected surgically very early. The LGBTQ is a sinful group. The LGBT movement refuses to leave people alone to their Christian faith. They don’t just want people to tolerate them; they demand to be granted special rights. Satan will be waiting for them.

  2. I love the Left’s interpretation of free speech! It is thoroughly disgusting how they feel they have the right to mistreat and abuse Christians and Conservatives! There are really no adequate words to describe the evil they feel entitled to spew. Pure ugliness!

    • don’t make it about the whole “left” – -but some members of the left are bad about allowing the free speech rights to other viewpoints. I had to talk to some of my fellow faculty members about some of their attacks on a Christian biology teacher — and defended his right of academic freedom, which was no less the same as theirs. I will tell you for honesty, because I believed in God and His son, Jesus, I got quite a bit of verbal abuse from some colleagues who were not the best colleagues. I taught sciences, but told my students that science cannot handle the province on the spiritual – – and they are different areas, not adversaries.

    • You only have free speech if you agree with them. Is anybody really shocked about this UC Berkeley is one of the most Liberal Colleges in the Country.

  3. No Chow should not resign. She should also not be forced to sign something she does not agree with. I think the imbeciles are those protesting and ranting about what amounts to her great courage. I commend Chow for putting herself out there because it is not easy, in these times, to defend what you believe in when so many are so cruel, and violent in their response.

  4. No. All people deserve to have an opinion regardless of whether it is I alignment with the majority what kind of an education are these students getting when everyone has tone in lock step with the majority. Intolerance of others beliefs will not only result in an homogediciety but’s very dangerous one. As yourself what other countries walked in lockstep and did not allow a difference of opinion. Shame on the intolerant students and on the Berkeley staff.

  5. What happened to free speech and freedom of religion? Wasn’t that a big thing not to long ago with UC Berkeley? Now it’s agree with me or get out? This is bunch of crap and the school should take control of it and tell the Queer Alliance Resource Center to back the hell off or be disbanded, period.

    • It is free speech, as long as it is their belief! The far leftist idiots need to say it up front – if you don’t believe our moronic ideology, then there is no free speech. I’m actually surprised that they’re using “queer”. A while back that word was taboo and considered racial. I think that Chow should do what’s in her own heart and her thoughts. Berkeley has always been anti anything. They have a new grief on their weekly menu. I’m not sure how anyone is learning anything when they are so busy protesting anything and everything. It’s last generation is teaching the new generation how to hate anything that they oppose.

  6. In this new society in the U.S. If we cannot practice Christianity, what religion is allowed? WE have always been a Christian Country is this what outsiders R pushing, we cannot have our own faith anymore? If this is the case, then deport those who will not fit conform to our way of life & our Countries beliefs.
    I am so sick of the attacks on everything in our Country. This is our Country don’t like it Leave. Don’t change Us.
    Every Religion should be left alone, unless your Religion practices Hate, Violence, Racism, Evil, or permits Torture, Rape & Death. Must promote Peace. No religion should be pushed on others.

    • but ab55, you just pulled, in a slight way, what you did not like about the treatment of the student. When you say “this is our country, don’t like it leave” – – you are actually being like the Berkeley students who told the student to leave if she did not go along. Your last statement was perfect, no religion should be pushed on others”- — and that includes agnosticism and atheism! Hostility by atheists can be fanatic – – and they have no right to shove their atheism on us either. It was the intolerance at Berkeley that was violating her rights to have her religious beliefs, and IT WAS WRONG!

  7. Ms Chow…STAND YOUR GROUND, contact the press, and make all the noise you can. Never give in to the communist wannabees.
    Best of luck.

  8. What is happening to this world?? It is sin, the student body, the Senate, the LGBTQ, the administration, the school paper are all fighting against God. You will never win!! In due time you will witness the wrath of God for your actions. This young girl has her rights also, I commend her for standing tall for her beliefs. To God be the glory!!!!

  9. What is this left wing crap? We taxpayers are paying for this crap and the people in charge at Bezerkly are sitting around with their thumb up their exhaust pipe. Of course what can you expect from the left wing pieces of filth at Bezerky and the people that run California!

    • I believe that the Feds should DEFUND these liberal universities, they no longer teach the truth, all they do is indoctrinate our kids. That’s the reason why we have so much nuts running around in this country today. Need to relook at what all these schools and universities are doing to our next generation

  10. No, you should be permitted to express your opinion and not be required to follow the crowd. May you have courage to stand firm. I hope that one of the freedom organizations will be contacted and will agree to stand with you. Our prayers will be with you.

  11. Once upon a time a famous Jappense Admiral stated, “WE HAVE AWAKENED A SLEEPING GIANT” don’t be surprised when history repeats itself. Think about this snow flakes.

  12. With 100% of the population adapting / living this new Gender “definition”, will destroy humanity in just one generation.
    It is this dangerous to the survival humanity.

  13. Are these people totally leaderless? Are they not aware of the principles of free speech or for that matter free thought? Now this is fascist behavior and it shocks me that other students do not support someone who takes a principled stand. We are paying for this and it is disgusting!!!

  14. once again the left exposes itself as a, “what’s good for the goose is not good for the gander” party. free speech is fine, as long as it fits their agenda. But, as soon as it is contrary to their way of thinking, however convoluted it may be, it then becomes hate speech instead of free speech and must be suppressed. welcome to the new melenia

  15. Some things never change. Colleges have been like that for decades. However, they are starting to get more and more vicious, and the administrators are getting more and more scared of the students. (Or maybe they agree with them.) Liberals say how open-minded they are, but will shout down whoever doesn’t agree with them.

  16. If the Berkeley administration allows this they should close the school and make it a drag queen gar bar. No, Chow should not resign or be forced to resign. What exactly is UC Berkeley doing to uphold one’s first amendment rights? This LGBTQ community is ruining the lives of children from grade 1 through college years. God created two sexes, male and female, and those who feel non-binary are totally in need of psychiatric help. We need to reopen the mental institutions in this country. There are millions of crazies running the country. Look at the news and see how many children have been molested in these unisex bathrooms, and the schools that have 5 and 6 year old come to school 1 day a week dressed as the opposite gender from their birth gender. Do you people believe that they are born this way or could they possibly be driven in that direction????

    • Liberal Education in all grades and college started in the 60’s when all the protest started, drink the Liberal Kool-Aid, Free Love (Sex) not correctly worded, Gay Sex, Syphilis, Herpes, Aids outbreak and many other STD’s, loss of Religion and morals in general Liberal 101!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      If you are smart enough to vote, whoever is supporting this should not be elected, it does not matter what party!!

  17. The answer is NO!!!!!!!! Young Ms. Chow is right and a hero!!!!!!!! Shame of the school for not defending her. More power to Ms. Chow!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love her!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Isabella, You are right. Don’t let a bunch of morons get to you. God will see you through it. Berkley has always had fanatics so it is nothing new. Berkley is where LSD became well known.

  19. In the minds of the liberal/progressive establishment, free speech is a one way street, and open to their own contrived interpretation. Whether on college and university campuses, the mainstream media, Hollywood; the Christian faith is under constant threat and attack. This is just another indication of moral corruption and of an irreligious culture.

  20. This country needs Christ. God will have the last Word. Praying for Ms Chow. Christians need to take strong stand and fight. Times will get worse. Pray for our enemies. Elect those who do not support liberal ideas.

  21. Ms. Chow should never have opted to attend that left-of-liberal cesspool of a publicly-funded in the first place. I would be concerned for her safety.

  22. No Ms. Chow should not have to resign. All she has done is voice her beliefs in a open forum which is protected by the First Amendment. As for the University, & her fellow students they should be ashamed of them selves for being such hypocrites. They preach free speech but only believe in it when it is 100 percent agreement with their agenda as most Phony Liberals prescribed to, or as they are better known in the real world outside of academia Fascists plain & simple. So please Ms. Chow don’t give up even though it is very difficult to stay the course believe it or not you & young people like you are America’s best & brightest future & some us truly respect & believe in you.

  23. She has a concern not only for her rights to voice but her other concern are for those individuals according to her Christian biblical faith with this thought that even God has towards all His children.
    “Say unto them, [As] I live, says the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; (sinners) but that the wicked (sinner) turn from his way and live: turn you, turn you from your sinful evil ways; for why will ye die… (Children of the living God”)
    LGBT in the eyes of God your movement is doomed. As the verse says, turn you, turn you…

  24. All from the cult of the casually offended, man I wish that was me ,I’d have lots of fun with those fools ,their already confused, they would be ready to jump off a building when I got done with them
