Oxford college bans 'harmful' Christian Union from freshers' fair

An Oxford College has banned the Christian Union from its freshers’ fair on the grounds that it would be “alienating” for students of other religions, and constitute a “micro-aggression”. The organiser of Balliol’s fair argued Christianity’s historic use as “an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism” meant that students might feel “unwelcome” in their new college if the Christian Union had a stall. Freddy Potts, vice-president of Balliol’s Junior Common Room (JCR) committee, said that if a representative from the Christian Union (CU) attended the fair, it could cause "potential harm" to freshers. 

Mr Potts, writing on behalf of the JCR's welfare committee, told the CU representative at Balliol, that their "sole concern is that the presence of the CU alone may alienate incoming students”.

In email correspondence, seen by The Daily Telegraph, he went on: “This sort of alienation or micro-aggression is regularly dismissed as not important enough to report, especially when there is little to no indication that other students or committee members may empathise, and inevitably leads to further harm of the already most vulnerable and marginalised groups. “Historically, Christianity’s influence on many marginalised communities has been damaging in its methods of conversion and rules of practice, and is still used in many places as an excuse for homophobia and certain forms of neo-colonialism."

He said that barring the Christian Union from the fair “may be a way of helping to avoid making any students feel initially unwelcome within Balliol”.

Would they allow a Muslim booth? I bet they would.

Oxford college bans 'harmful' Christian Union

We're seeing western civilization conducting a progressive holocaust against its self. The question is, how long before it wipes it's self from the face of the earth.

Off-topic but I wanted to ask if you've been monitoring Stream.org?

A general news site with a strong Christian focus. Very professional site, steady fresh content. Reminds me of a newer, better WND.

Their military photo of the day today is of Marines firing a M777 howitzer. It's a good action shot with appealing aesthetic qualities. A week ago, they had a pic of a M109A6 Paladin howitzer firing in a German training exercise.

What's that disorder where the person ends up chewing off their own flesh?--- autosarcophagy

The associated philosophy is 'beggars to their own demise.'

Never heard of it. I will check it out. Working with 3rd Cav Regiment right now. They are a Striker vehicle unit with M777 howitzers.

Certainly a historical and storied regiment. Sounds like a sweet post-military gig to me.

Ha!! "A MAD HOUSE!!"

My second favorite scene from POTA. It does describes this insanity.

Here's my favorite scene. Awesome ending.

The policies are sadomasochistic and suicidal, no doubt.

The goal of a giant decades-long PsyOp has been in using the culture and institutions to convince hundreds of millions of Europeans and Americans (historically rooted in Judeo-Christianity) that THEY have "victimized" not only Planet Earth, but the rest of its on-Western inhabitants.

We are being herded into the biggest cattle car ever made: THE ENTIRE PLANET.

It is the NWO Elites who are directing this holocaust. Those who are remaining will be slaves.

It can be be said with great confidence that those who are directing this agenda are not Christians. If not, then to what creed, belief, or philosophy do they subscribe that supports this massive subversive plan?

Thoughts? Is it merely about power? Punishment? Revenge?

Yes, invitation type job interviews where I work. :)

We also have 1st Cav Division here on post. Very snobbish organization until they find out you are alumni CAV then the walls come down a bit.

I was working with one LTC who did not know me from Adam because he was too young to remember. When I politely told him I used to have his job he was a bit more interested in what I had to say. I was like that too.."what can this civilian dude teach me." Until I grew up, shut my mouth and listened.

Great scene. I remember rushing home from school as a kid to catch the After School movie specials (ABC) where they played the Planet of the Apes series.

My sister reminded me how I fell asleep on Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) at a drive in movie theatre with family. I was just a small lad back then.

Showing their hand? We always knew this but this journalist quipped about the unholy alliance:

Satanists. Abortion. Planned Parenthood. Where in the world would those three things have anything to do with one another? In Missouri, apparently, where Planned Parenthood appears to have an unexpected advocate in its quest to fight what it considers to be restrictive abortion laws.

Read more here: Satanists emerge as advocate as Planned Parenthood restores Missouri abortion services

Again, we already knew the secular atheists were Satanists, approve of abortion and connected to PP. Now they are not bashful about doing Satan's work.

Man, you must have been exhausted. And very young ;-)

You did see eventually see 'Beneath Planet of the Apes,' right?

I'm a bit older and happened to catch the original flick on the Big Screen (with Mom.) Yeah, that end scene was cool/eerie. Then and now still.

Must have been entertaining. I had no idea there was a series. You'd think they'd re-release them.

Yup. Seems Satanists are actually hiding behind a militant secular atheism front.

That pro-PP Abortionists have openly formed an unholy alliance with Satanists for advocacy in a joint unholy sacrament of murdering babies in the womb -- and have found support in Congress or ANY where -- is an absolute disgrace. Talk about doing Satan's work. And proudly.

Of all the insane crusades out there for anyone who considers themselves "normal," "compassionate," or about "human rights," being Pro-Abortion, pro-PP can only be explained by a "soft" demon possession.

It's the result of of angry neurotic pseudointellectuals attempting to synthesize an importance by combining words in a way that is grammatically correct but irrelevent or contradictory to a reality which they hate. Look at it as a child's negative attention seeking by adults who have never been compelled to grow beyond the age of ten.
