MIT takes God out of graduation

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) removed religious prayer from its commencement ceremony this year.

Traditionally, MIT Chaplain Robert Randolph has given a religious prayer at the ceremony, as he prayed to the ‚ÄúGod of Abraham, Jesus and Mohammed‚ÄĚ during last year‚Äôs graduation. However, MIT‚Äôs Commencement Committee emailed undergraduates announcing the change in May.

In an interview with Campus Reform, Randolph explained that the situation was brought up suddenly and had to be quickly addressed by the administration.

“[This issue is] not something that’s come up before...we are familiar with the fact that we are a diverse community, and so we have many faiths represented, but we have never had a conversation prompted by a group that felt that they were left out since they didn’t believe in any higher power. Their solution, which was not to have any kind of invocation, was not an ...

It's best that this chaplain who prayed to the ‚ÄúGod of Abraham, Jesus and Mohammed‚ÄĚ doesn't pray at all as he is inclusive. Christ is exclusive...there are no other gods. I have a difficult time understanding why one prays in secular settings to unbelievers. God isn't welcome there to begin with. And the only prayer that God listens to from an unbeliever is the the prayer for salvation.

Another institution which will suffer from zero authority, which in MIT's case means bad education. You don't dump God without consequences. God does not bless the work of the blind and ignorant.
Good bye MIT.

Proverbs 2:22 But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

Proverbs 15:9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.

Aren't chaplins usually Riman Catholic, or are they non-denominational? If not the latter, then it's really no surprize s Pope John Paul said we all worship the same god and just have different ways of getting to Heaven. Not to mention the current non successor to Peter inviting Muslims to pray at the one true churches palace.

Why would that Chaplain have prayed to anybody other than Jesus? Why would the Chaplain care if praying to Jesus offends Non Christians? And what would happen if the Chaplain would go against MIT and continue to pray at the commencement?

I agree of removing it because he was mixing the true God with other gods so it's confusion.
