Separation of Church and Church at William & Mary University … Removal of Cross
Nice to know that Presidents of universities just cant stand the Christian religion. Even if they claim they are Catholics. Can Liberal educators just admit they are against Christianity and use the excuse of diversity. In a less than brilliant and even less than explainable move, school President Gene R. Nichol removed a cross from a chapel. Are you kidding, removing a cross from a chapel. Where else would a cross belong but in a place of worship? All in the name of diversity. So why is it ok then to be prejudice against a cross in the name of diversity? Little by little the educational institutions of this country are being taken over by liberals with an agenda.
Nichol unexpectedly created a ruckus in October when he ordered the cross removed to make the chapel more welcoming to students of all faiths. Previously, the cross could be removed by request; now it can be returned by request.
“It’s the right thing to do to make sure that this campus is open and welcoming to everyone,” Nichol said in an interview. “This is a diverse institution religiously, and we want it to become even more diverse.” (Fox News)
The Right Wing News asks the question that many of us do, “How is it that Christians seem to be the only people ever targeted in this way?”
They clash, though, over what to do with an unadorned, 18-inch brass cross that had been displayed on the altar since about 1940. For those that wish to hide behind a separation of church an state falacy argument … you may want to remember what the Founding Fathers envisioned.
… that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
