The Gospel as “Fighting Words”

If you doubt that progressives will ban any expression of Christianity once they have the political leverage, look to academia, where they have already established nearly total hegemony:

Georgia Gwinnett College tried to dispel a First Amendment lawsuit by claiming that it removed a preacher from campus because his discussion of the Gospels “rose to the level of ‘fighting words.’”

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) filed a lawsuit in December challenging the Georgia college’s restrictive speech policies after student Chike Uzuegbunam was repeatedly prohibited from discussing his Christian faith on campus, even after he had obtained permission to do so in one of the school’s free-speech zones.

At first, the university argued that Uzuegbunam was indulging in “disorderly conduct” by passing out pamphlets and discussing Christianity within the tiny free speech zones.

Now, though, ADF has informed Campus Reform that the school has filed a motion to dismiss the case, arguing that the plaintiff’s “open-air speaking” rose “to the level of ‘fighting words,’” as evidenced in a copy of the motion obtained by Campus Reform.

This illustrates the problem with any exemptions to essential liberties. Liberals will cram everything they want to ban into even the smallest exemption.

    Judging by the name of the prohibited student, he is black and probably from Africa.

    Why is Georgia Gwinnet such a cesspool of racism and bigotry?

    The older I get, the harder it gets to ignore that religion as practiced by believers of all faiths, is the root of much inhumanity, despair, suffering, war, slavery, torture and death. I know that Communist and godless societies like China and Russia have killed millions in the name of the State. But religion is right up there. There are many good religious people but it seems that the bad ones rise to the top. I’m not saying God is bad; I’m saying his followers, self included, have no f’ing idea of what he really wants.

    But he spoke more vehemently, “If I have to die with You, I will not deny You!”
    And they all said likewise.

    —Mark 14:31

    Well done, Chike.

    Sorry, but that’s utter nonsense. (I used to say it myself when I was a kid.) But religion is not “right up there.” Any acts of inhumanity done in the name of religion would have been done anyway, and humans have proven this over and over and over. Religion doesn’t tell people to go out and perform such heinous acts (Islam excluded, of course; but it’s more conquering ideology than religion).

    Wars are fought over money. Or their fought over resources, which is to say money. Or they’re fought over land, which is to say resources, which is to say money.

    If leaders use religion to whip the populace up to go to war, well, how is that religion’s fault? Take religion out of the mix and what do we get instead? “He’s a dictator, let’s go bomb that country.” We’re a secular country, and we’re CONTINUALLY at war. And we’re drawn into it every time with lies and damned lies, and all for corporate profits.

    We do know what God wants. But people always want what they want first.

    Jesus said some fighting words. For example, “Before Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, I AM!” And the scribes and the Pharisees knew what He meant when He said I AM, (just as God told Moses out of the burning bush, “I AM,” which in Hebrew is YHWH), and they wanted to stone Him to death right then and there.

    Africa should send more Christian missionaries to the United States! We sadly need all the Christian missionaries we can get.
