Harvard Puts Christian Student Group on 'Probation' Following Removal of Lesbian Leader
Harvard University has put a Christian student group on "administrative probation," allegedly in response to the group's decision to ask a female leader to resign once it was learned that she's in a lesbian relationship.
Harvard College Faith & Action, a Christian student group based at the Ivy League school, was put on administrative probation following their decision, although the university itself has not specified a reason for the punishment, according to The Boston Globe.
"[A Harvard spokesman] said that if the club re-registers as a student organization next spring it will have to show that it is in compliance with the university's 'nondiscrimination principals,'" noted the Globe....
Having lived in New Engald, there are Christians and Christian churches in Boston. Christians have such a different attitude than the prevailing culture that I found them to stick out in public... literally as lights in darkness.
The post-Christian burnout is already happening in the South or so-called Bible Belt. Lots of cultural Christianity but I have personally met relatively few who display fruit of the Spirit. Too much easy beliefism and not enough repentance.
How can this be, Jimbo? I mean, isn't Boston the place all those Puritans lived in and controlled, down to making it illegal to miss Sunday services? I've heard even Harvard was established as a training school for ministers. How did this happen? Could the same thing happen in the Bible Belt of the South?
Harvard is not a Christian School, it's probably been actively hostile to Christianity for a hundred years or more?
Is there any Christian Church in the whole city of Boston as far as that goes! See [URL=http://tinyurl.com/ycev6b5w]]]http://tinyurl.com/ycev6b5w (What to Look for in a Church)[/URL]. It's a city of Catholics (See [URL=http://rippster4christ.blogspot.com/2014/06/is-catholic-christian-oxymoron.html]]]http://tinyurl.com/jsdkc45 (Is a Catholic Christian an Oxymoron?)[/URL] and no doubt Harvard itself has quite a few Unitarian-Universalists See:
Dr. John Weldon wrote: Unitarian Universalism-Part 1 By: Dr. John Ankerberg and Dr. John Weldon In the United States and Canada there are over 1,000 Unitarian Universalist (UU) churches within the parent organization, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA). The UUA is strongly committed to theological liberalism, religious pluralism, ‚Äúfree-thinking‚ÄĚ in all areas and radical social action.
The Lord places Harvard University on Administrative Probation. "But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off." Psalm 37.
Psalm 35:1 Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. 2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help. 3 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation. 4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt."
Psalm 36:1 The transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes. 2 For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful. 3 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off to be wise, and to do good. 4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil."
Psalm 37:1 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. 2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. 3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed."
In a column for The American Conservative published Friday, Rod Dreher, the author of the theologically provocative book The Benedict Option, labeled the university's actions "anti-Christian."
"HCFA now has an opportunity to bear witness, through suffering, to the truth of the Christian faith, in the face of spite and rejection. Stay strong, y'all. You are on the front lines. All eyes will be on you, watching to see how you love even those who treat you cruelly," wrote Dreher.
"As for the rest of us, understand that this is how it's going to go for all orthodox Christians. Pray for these Harvard believers ... and prepare for how you will handle it when it happens to you. Because the LGBT movement and its supporters will tolerate nothing.
" toleration" ??? Not for godliness
Ps35:15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not: 16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth. 17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions. 18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people."
