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?
