A Christian group was just banned from this college campus for an insane reason

56

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?

  1. Just more insanity from the left. That’s okay…God won’t invite them into HIs home, either. Heaven will be totally awesome…NO LIBS!!!!

    • That is hateful to say something like that. That people that don’t hold your particular view of religion won’t go to heaven – -AS IF you have ALL the answers. That is hate speech just like anti-semitism – – and we just saw what was one of the results of such thought in Pittsburg.

      This whole article is a misrepresentation and twisted. This was not an issue of a Christian group being kicked off campus, but that the student body did not wish to allow a special religion special favors to use the facilities, which could lead to many other religions vying for the same rights. Many of you misunderstood this was about liberals, when this is not even IN AMERICA – – – Oxford is in England, and they have stayed in business for over 1000 years by not having religious CONFLICTS or favoritism on campus! No one is denying them the right to speak, and all you are doing is trying to paint higher education in a false and bad light!

      • We don’t have to TRY to pint them in a bad light they do a fabulous job of that all on their own. Oh and BTW? I have a PhD and masters plus I am a lifetime member of Mensa should you try and paint me as an uneducated “CON” Smart people do NOT think all this liberal nonsense like Cry Closets and Micro aggression’s are anything but PATHETIC OHHHH OHHHHHH MR Kotter those meanie normal people offend me!” Pulllllllez a day off because they had to recover from an election? Tell me that is preparing kids for real life. PATHETIC

    • NO, it is NOT. It is not even left wing – – that is an American political term, and this University is in England and may be the finest university in the world. Before you jump to conclusions, you need to know what you are talking about first!

      • OXFORD USED to be one of the greatest as was Harvard now they are Pathetic left wing Liberal enclaves where free thought or expression is met with a bunch of snowflake demands. FYI? I went to a top 10 it too used to be great. Now they are a joke as well among turly educated people.

  2. Ironically, most of America’s colleges, esp. the oldest ones, Ivy League type, were established to train young people for the ministry…sadly, today a sleeping group, those of us of different faiths, will see this great country pass into one that is hostile to any religious faith, Christian, Jewish, other, rather like China, where they are destroying churches and attempting to destroy Christian faith. Is it for this America was established?

  3. Pat and BJ (above) have VERY good points about the danger to the Christian groups, but all things being equal OF COURSE the Christian groups should be allowed on campus at the University of Oxford or anywhere else. That they are being blackballed is OUTRAGEOUS, but sadly, that’s the world we live in.

    It’s worth noting that university graduates who haven’t heard a word of criticism of THEIR worldview in college will be ill-prepared to deal with REAL LIFE, where they WILL meet many people (including, for instance, bosses at work and so on) who don’t share their worldview. They will be ILL PREPARED to adjust to — gasp! Christians! — or for that matter Jewish people or anyone else who doesn’t hold the same PC views that THEY have been taught. That means they will LOSE JOBS, lose influence, and end up in middle age as WASHOUTS or FAILURES. And some day it MAY dawn on them that they COULD have done better for themselves if they’d been allowed to GROW UP when they were KIDS, instead of having to figure it out when they got to be (at least in terms of years) adults.

  4. It is illegal to ban this Christian group…religious discrimination. They should be sued and all schools held to the standards they held pre-snowflake. I cannot believe everyone on on campus is this braindead. If we do not confront this hatred everywhere it shows up, we as a country are lost.

  5. We have to get ahandle on these scum, The first placeto go is to stop all colleges from getting govermnment loans for tuition That will stop a lot of this crap immediate;y

  6. While we have no say as to what happens at Oxford, we do have a say in what is allowed and banned in America’s colleges and universities. Here, I think all financial aide should be withdrawn from any education establishment that engages in banning Catholics/Christians. No grants, financial aide to student or schools that discriminate against people based on their religion, race etc. etc. And all religious personnel, including faculty and lay personnel alike, must be treated fairly. You can bet Oxford hasn’t banned Islam!

    • THANK YOU for realizing this is NOT an issue to be framed in American terms, and is it not biased that this article misleads the reader in this way to lead to a FALSE conclusion!?! But Barbara, read the article thoroughly, no one is being banned – – – > not Christians, or Muslims, or Buddhists etc. – -in fact, they have have SUPERB religious scholars teaching all faiths at their university. This is about not approving a special program and a special privilege for Christians only. If they want to do a program that promotes the Christian faith for a summer program, who not ask a RELIGIOUS/Christian University?!?

      This article is deliberately misleading, trying to work up some big victimization of Christianity — yet it is being doing by bearing FALSEHOODS and MISREPRESENTATIONS.

  7. You know there is one thing these people don’t understand and that is God don’t like Ugly and he will take care of all of them . God put president Trump in place along with a wonderful Vice President. As you can see right now he is taking care of the dems that are causing the problems. They are destroying themselves . We as Christian people we should stand up and make our voices heard. We need to all band together and praise God for all he has done for us. And let him do his job of taking care of the business that he doesn’t like. There are going to be a lot of dems that will really miss seeing the beautiful gates of heaven and all behind them . And Yes there are gates to keep the bad out up there. There is this verse he who denies me now I will deny them before my father . God don’t like Ugly so their time is coming.

    • Maybe God does not like constant repetition. By your logic, God put President Obama in place, and for two terms because Obama handily won by elections but BOTH the electoral and the popular vote. The ones who are causing all the violence of late are right-wingers, narrow minded bigots, Did you realize that incidents of anti-semitism have increased 57% since Trump became president . . . and acts by white supremacist groups are also on the increase (like Sayoc and his 15+ mail bombs)? When the white supremacists and KKK marched and chanted about “the Jews will not replace us” – – and Trump refused to condemn this as president, it was a sign for the radical fringe to continue acts like this, and especially attack the main stream media.

      • Amazing that so much falsehoods could come out of one person. The Democrats go through the same crap every election. Calling the Republicans racists, bigots, etc… yet it was the Democrats that wanted to keep slaves, it was the Democrats that were Klu Klux Klan members, it is the Democrats that are actually put labels on people. I wish you would read some history on how much the Democrats love their power and do anything for it. They are obstructionists and they have been calling for unrest. It was Hillary Clinton who said there would be no civility, until they are back in power. Eric Holder when they go low kick them. Maxine Harass people when they are in a restaurant, or a gas station… etc. President Obama hid his connection with Louis Farrakhan who is anti-Semitic, a racist, and Rev. Wright President Obama’s pastor, The Church of G.D. America. The Media is another arm of the Democrat party, if they were unbiased and reported the news fairly, you would have been more informed. If you actually listened to what President Trump called it Fake News. The “Fake News” is the true enemy of the people. If you don’t get accurate reporting, your not getting the full picture. Instead the media blames hurricanes and disturbed people doing bad things on President Trump, is so ridiculous. That would be like saying that all the Florida Night Club Shooting, hurricanes, Boston bombing, etc… that occurred during President Obama’s presidency is his fault, it’s just ridiculous.

      • They say the Christian Group would not be invited because the Group goes against their values. So truth is important what kind of values does this school have if they don’t support Christian Values I guess they support the values of the devil.

  10. It seems the whole world is in crisis. But when western society starts to turn. On its own people this is the start of the end that will only end in disaster.. Please grow up people we were not designed to think or do exactly the same, if. We were life would be so predictable and not worth living. Diversity causes invention and growth of us as a race of beings and this life is just a start of a much longer journey.

  11. It is sad, but irrelevant. In the long run it won’t mean anything. When these folks screw up the economic system enough, it will stop functioning, the universities will disappear, and they, or their heirs will have to go back to more basic endeavors, such as working fields and growing food just as they did in the Dark Ages, following collapse of the Greek, and then the Roman Empire. Christianity will survive because Christ’s message which is most essentially how people can live together in positive relationships, is the most important part of what sustains us. In the meantime, teach your children Christian values; send them to schools that teach them to be productive contributors; people of principle and integrity. Don’t send them to universities that are gateways to a meaningless nihilistic life.

  12. Christian concern “allowed”? NO, it should be mandatory!!!!! It just goes to show what is running the universities… not progressive thought… but oppressive nazi rhetoric which will eventually destroy the civilization as we know it…… consequently Universities have progressed to institution of dumbing down the population as opposed to enriching the society to accomplish greater things. And the professors are being paid enormous salaries to destroy young minds… Home school – Home school – home school and then military to create a sense of pride in country and self then trade schools for some sense of civility and ability!!

  13. Absolutely, why should only organizations that want to ban other organizations be allowed “FREE SPEECH” on campuses? How is this a level playing field?

  14. Our higher education institutes are becoming babysitters like lower institutes. These citizens do not have enough maturity to live in a free republic. They need their government to make all their decisions. Maybe they should move to Venezuela

  15. The “Left” or “Progressives” do not like Christian groups because they teach responsibility and morals, and how to actually get along with people a person may disagree with on various issues. Which are two things the “Left” do not like. They need people to react emotionally without thinking and actual Christianity promotes reason and logic. So this does not surprise me.

  16. I encourage those who are suffering persecution because of their Christian faith…
    Psalm 11:1-7
    And then…
    Matthew 10:11-20

    We should never compromise our faith for the world, we should not support these worldly, wicked “educational” institutions.

    Proverbs 6:12-19

  17. It’s too bad that liberals have taken control of all our schools,
    should have noticed the dangers when they took the Lords Prayer out of school every morning.
    I pray that we can turn this around,won’t be easy there will be a lot of turmoil.
    It’s not too late but we must act now. in 2020 we must keep the Presidency,the Senate and take back the House,then act like Americans and remove all the hostiles from office forever.
    We are Americans time to act like it.

  18. Free Speech no longer exists. The progressive left are trying to shut everyone down that might threaten them . They need to be shut down if they can’t allow Christians to speak there.

    • This is why people need to learn what the “Progressives” are about – Supremacy of the State and Supremacy of those in control of the State. This is why they regularly attack people who challenge them using their minions. And what their minions fail to learn is that they they are first ones the “Progressives” in charge will exterminate after they have power. The pattern is there for everyone to see.
