Academia has become a cesspool for leftist thinking.
They make it clear that anyone who thinks for themselves are not welcome.
But the reason this Christian group was banned from a college campus will make your jaw drop.
Students from the University of Oxford recently voted to ban Christian Concern, a Christian organization, from hosting a youth summer camp on the campus.
The students voted 81-8 in favor of banning the Christian group because it would “threaten their mental and physical safety.”
The Telegraph writes:
The JCR at Lady Margaret Hall voted overwhelmingly in favour of banning Christian Concern from hosting a residential summer camp on the premises because their values do not align with those of the college.
The group wanted to host its residential camp for young people, which aims to “train and equip the invited students on what it means to proclaim Christ in public life,” but JCR members voted to reject the residency by a margin of 81 votes to eight, with two abstentions.
According to the student newspaper OxStu, “members of the JCR who spoke in the debate recognised Christian Concern as a “real threat to the physical and mental safety of students”. One student made the point that “we’re inviting them into our home and we can’t invite people who stand against our values”.
The move to ban the Christian group comes as no surprise to anyone familiar with Academia.
While these universities claim to be in support of free thought and free speech, they are becoming increasingly hostile to anyone who doesn’t bow down to their so-called “progressive” orthodoxy.
It used to be that universities were considered “safe spaces” that encouraged vigorous debate and the free exchange of ideas without fear of repercussion.
Now, instead of teaching students that they can disagree with someone and still engage in meaningful dialogue, our universities are teaching them that “safe spaces” and outright censorship are the answer.
After Donald Trump was elected, many colleges and universities even cancelled exams so students could “recover.”
The University of Utah even installed a “Cry Closet” – complete with stuffed animals and blankie – for students.
This just goes to show how unhinged Academia has become.
It is no longer the height of scientific progress and free thought.
Instead it has been reduced to so-called “progressive” leftists crying about those “evil” Christians and conservatives.
Do you think Christian Concern should be allowed on the campus?
