Religious Discrimination 101: On The College Campus May 8, 2007

Alan Cooperman wrote a interesting story for the Washington Post that talks about the views that college faculty have towards religion. Specifically it seems that negative views of evangelical Christians topped the list in the one study that was done:

The other survey, by the San Francisco-based Institute for Jewish and Community Research, confirmed those findings but also found what the institute’s director and chief pollster, Gary A. Tobin, called an “explosive” statistic: 53 percent of its sample of 1,200 college and university faculty members said they have “unfavorable” feelings toward evangelical Christians.

A graph accompanying the story drove the point home. By comparison, only three percent of faculty members had unfavorable feelings toward Jews. What’s funny is that the latter survey was designed to gauge anti-Semitism.

The only groups with significantly negative responses were Christians and Muslims. A full third of faculty had negative views toward Mormons, with 22 percent reporting unfavorable views toward Muslims, 18 percent with negative feelings toward atheists, 13 percent with negative feelings toward Roman Caholics, 10 percent with negative feelings toward the non-religious, nine percent with negative feelings toward non-evangelical Christians and four percent reporting negative views toward Buddhists.

Indianapolis city officials accused of religious discrimination March 6, 2007

A Baptist church in Indianapolis is standing its ground in a dispute with city officials over alleged violations concerning zoning codes. The Alliance Defense Fund is appealing the decision of a federal judge that could prevent the church members from meeting in their leased facilities.

Last month, city officials in Indianapolis sent a letter to the Baptist Church of the Westside, where members meet regularly at their leased building for worship and other church-related activities. The letter said the church’s “religious use” of the property violated the city’s zoning code.

A federal district court has refused to halt enforcement of the zoning code, so ADF attorneys are appealing that decision. David Langdon, an allied attorney with ADF, says churches should not be relegated to second-class status by city zoning officials.

“The city has indicated that they’re going to pursue legal action against the church, which could involve severe fines up to $2,500 a day as well as possibly seek an injunction from a court shutting them down, preventing them from meeting and from worshipping on Sunday mornings and on Wednesday nights and so forth.”

YouTube censors strike again March 2, 2007

From the Hot Air web log:

Verum Serum has the irony-filled story of Pastor David Williams and his travails at YouTube. Pastor Williams took on a campaign by atheists on YouTube called the “blasphemy challenge.” Atheists challenged YouTubers to post videos of themselves committing blasphemy, and many have risen to the call.

Pastor Williams thought the challenge was silly nonsense, so he posted a video parodying the effort. YouTube yanked that video after just six hours, apparently on complaints that it was “Inappropriate Content.” Williams has since re-posted the video on Google, so you can see it here for yourself. There’s nothing inappropriate about it at all. It’s just good old-fashioned snark, of the type that the Rational Response Squad seems to have hoped to receive, just not from Christians. Verum Serum says that atheists led the charge in getting Williams’ video banned.

This follows closely on the heels of another YouTube censorship scandal, that one involving atheist Nick Gisburne.

Alternative site by Christians has become target of mockery on Web March 1, 2007

An alternative Wikipedia written by conservative Christians has become a major target of mockery on the web.

Conservapedia, a wiki-based encyclopedia that offers the historical record from a conservative perspective, is attracting lots of derisive comments on blogs and a growing number of phony articles written by mischief makers.

Conservapedia “is a gold mine of unintentional hilarity,” wrote Mark Frauenfelder on Boing Boing last Monday.

The Wonkette political blog encouraged its readers to contribute to “this fast-growing, Jeebus-and-America-friendly online resource.” So did the ScienceBlogs network, which said, “There’s much fun to be had.”

Even conservative commentators like Andrew Sullivan are bemused.

Conservapedia brands itself on its main page as “a much-needed alternative to Wikipedia, which is increasingly anti-Christian and anti-American.”

A Catholic school principal has organized sensitivity training for students who shouted “We love Jesus” during a basketball game against a school with Jewish students.

The word “Jew” also was painted on a gym wall behind the seats of Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School students attending the Feb. 2 game at Norfolk Academy, said Dennis W. Price, principal of the Virginia Beach school.

Price who also watched the game, said the rivals exchanged chants, “Then, at some point, our students were chanting, ‘We love Jesus.'”

“It was obviously in reference to the Jewish population of Norfolk Academy; that’s the only way you can take that,” he added. (more…)

Burma’s Persecuted Christians Plea Case in Highest U.S. Hearings February 13, 2007

WASHINGTON – A delegation of Chin and Kachin activists from Burma was the first of its kind to meet with top U.S. officials to testify against “gross” human rights violations by Burma’s military regime against the country’s Christian minority, indicated a report.

“This has been the first time the Chin and Kachin people have been able to raise a voice at very high levels politically in the United States and the European Union,” reflected Salai Bawi Lian Mang, director of the Chin Human Rights Organization, in a statement.

“We believe our cry has been heard and now the world must act.”

Members of the delegation, organized by U.K.-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide, finished a week-long visit to Washington, D.C. on Monday.

The delegation met with John Hanford, ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom; senior policy advisors to the Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; representatives of the National Security Council at the White House; and the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

The activists also met with Congressional and Senate members and staffs, including Congressman Joseph Pitts (R-Pa.) and the office of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Burma is designated as a “Country of Particular Concern,” by the U.S. State Department for its severe religious freedom violations.

Washington was the delegation’s last stop on a tour to brief world leaders on the discrimination and persecution of the military’s regime against Christians in Burma. Other stops on the tour included London, Brussels and Berlin.

“This has been a truly historic opportunity to raise international awareness about the plight of the Chin and Kachin peoples in Burma, and to urge the international community to take action to bring an end to the suffering of all the people of Burma,” said CSW’s advocacy officer for South Asia, Benedict Rogers, who traveled with the delegation, in a statement.

PLANTATION KEY, Fla. — Two members of Gideons International arrested for distributing Bibles on a public sidewalk will be represented by Alliance Defense Fund attorneys. Anthony Mirto and Ernest Simpson were arrested, booked into jail, and charged with trespassing.

“The First Amendment protects the right to engage in religious speech on a public sidewalk,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel David Cortman. “Members of the Gideons have been highly respected for decades as peaceful providers of free Bibles to those who want them.”

On Jan. 19, Mirto and Simpson began distributing copies of the Bible on a public sidewalk outside Key Largo School. Neither man entered school grounds. After the school’s principal called police, a Monroe County Sheriff’s officer asked the men to leave immediately or face trespassing charges. As the men prepared to leave, the officer decided to arrest both individuals.
A hearing will be held March 5 in the County Court in and for Monroe County, Florida, in State of Florida v. Simpson and State of Florida v. Mirto. ADF attorneys are preparing a motion to dismiss the charges.

Saudi school in London ‘racist’, former teacher claims February 6, 2007

A school in London that is owned, funded and run by the Saudi Arabian government teaches students that Christians are ‘pigs’ and Jews are ‘monkeys’, a former teacher has alleged in an employment tribunal claim.

The Times of London reports that Colin Cook, who taught English at King Fahad Academy for 18 years, cited Arabic teaching materials used at the school to confirm his belief that the academy was “institutionally racist”.

“The schoolbooks presently in use describe Jews as ‘monkeys’ (or apes) and Christians as ‘pigs’,” said Cook, who was dismissed from the school in December.

After speaking to senior staff about his concerns, Cook, 57, claims he was told: “This is not England, it is Saudi Arabia.”

He is taking action against the school for unfairly dismissing him and because he alleges he suffered racial discrimination for not being a Saudi.

Pace Law School in White Plains, New York, is being asked to reverse its decision to deny recognition to a campus Christian student group. According to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, the school refuses to give the Christian Legal Society chapter official status, even after “remarkable concessions” by the faith-based group.

The Student Bar Association at Pace Law School in White Plains has denied official recognition to the campus chapter of the Christian Legal Society. The move comes despite the fact that the Christian group added “sexual orientation” to a non-discrimination clause in its constitution and opened membership to non-Christians.

Greg Lukianoff is president of the academic freedom and individual rights watchdog group, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE). He says his organization is calling on Pace officials to recognize the Christian Legal Society, which has, he notes, made “remarkable concessions” in order to conform to the school’s non-discrimination policies.

New York: Steal the Baby Jesus, that’s OK, Kick the Menorah Go to Jail January 23, 2007

On Sunday, the New York Times ran a story about two 20-year-olds, and an 18-year-old, who were arrested for stealing statues of baby Jesus from nativity scenes over the past two years. They hit the New York-suburban communities of Suffern and Haverstraw several times in 2005 and 2006. The police said they will not charge them with committing hate crimes; each is being charged with 14 counts of petty larceny.

Also on Sunday, WNBC.com reported that a 20-year-old was arrested for kicking a menorah in the New York suburban community of St. James. He is being charged with a hate crime and could face seven years in prison. He is being charged with a felony.

Catholic League president Bill Donohue commented saying, “This is so interesting. The reason the menorah is allowed in New York City public schools is because the authorities have branded it a secular symbol, and the reason the crèche is barred is because the same authorities have branded it a religious symbol. Yet when a 20-year-old man vandalizes a menorah outside New York he is charged with a hate crime and may spend seven years behind bars for his felony, while three others of the same age who vandalize several crèches outside New York-over a two-year period-are given a slap on the wrist.”

Donohue concluded, “We have long maintained that hate-crime laws evince a bias of their own. This proves it.”

Muslim march meant to intimidate Christians January 1, 2007

Posted by C.A.R.D in anti-Christian, Card, Christians, Citizens Against Racism and Discrimination, Discriminate, Discrimination, Muslim.

WorldNetDaily.com is running an article about Islamic groups intimidating Christians in Nazareth:

Excerpt:

NAZARETH – Islamic groups held a large militant march down the main streets of Nazareth this weekend, highlighting for some here the plight of Christians in this ancient city where Muslims have become a majority and members of the dwindling Christian population say they suffer regular intimidation.

Excerpt:

Islamic Movement leaders paraded down Nazareth’s main thoroughfare brandishing their party’s green flag. Young Muslim men in battle gear marched and beat drums as a man on loudspeaker repeatedly exclaimed in Arabic, “Allah is great.”

Hundreds of activists strutted screaming Islamist epithets, including “Islam is the only truth” and “Islam shall rule all.”

Tens of thousands of Nazareth residents, seemingly mostly Muslim, congregated on the streets as the march passed by. Muslim children launched firecrackers into the sky, occasionally misfiring, with the small explosives landing dangerously close to the crowds.

Many of the town’s Christian residents stayed away from the event, with the exception of Christian shopkeepers who worked in the area. WND observed as several Muslim youth marching in the parade started to charge at three local Christian shopkeepers but the youth stopped short.

Excerpt:

While the march was billed as a celebration, it’s militant virtues were clearly visible. The event seemed more a show of force than a street party.

“The march is meant to intimidate Christians,” said Saleem, a Nazareth Christian resident who asked that his last name be withheld for fear of what he said was “Muslim retaliation” for speaking out.

“It’s part of the methods used by the Muslims in very obvious ways to create an atmosphere where the Christians should know the Muslims are the main power and we are not welcome anymore,” Saleem said.

Airline British Midland Bans Bibles December 20, 2006

It seems that we are currently seeing more and more cases of religious discrimination.  One such case we covered before was a woman that was banned from wearing a cross on flights [Link].  Now a different airline is banning a woman from carrying a Bible with her on a flight to Saudi Arabia.  The featured article follows below:

A BRITISH airline has banned its crew from taking the Bible into Saudi Arabia for fear of upsetting Muslims.BMI bosses have told staff they must take the Koran instead.

One middle-aged stewardess is to sue BMI for religious discrimination at an industrial tribunal due to take place in the New Year.

In the meantime she will be excluded from BMI flights to Saudi Arabia.

A BMI source said: “Foreign Office advice is that non-Islamic religious material is not permitted in Saudi.”

But another BMI worker said: “We understand our embassy has confirmed that the Saudis never enforce this rule.

“The stewardess is deeply religious and takes her Bible everywhere she travels.

“The bottom line is BMI don’t want to jeopardise the Saudi route, which is worth millions to them.”

The ban follows BA’s climbdown on a rule prohibiting staff wearing crosses — which triggered a mass protest.

Valedictorian Silenced Over Her Christian Faith Will Go to Court December 19, 2006

A high school student whose commencement speech was cut off when she spoke about her Christian faith will have her case heard in a federal court.

A federal judge in Nevada ruled Monday that a debate over freedom of religious expression in public school commencement ceremonies will go to court.

The charges stem from a June 15 incident at Foothill High School in Henderson, Nevada, when school administrators cut off valedictorian Brittany McComb’s commencement speech after she strayed from a pre-approved script. Earlier, they had removed from her speech references to the Bible and her faith.

Christian students ‘facing discrimination’ November 25, 2006

Christian students at many British universities are facing “considerable opposition and discrimination”, church leaders have claimed.

Bishops from the Anglican and Catholic churches say students’ rights of “freedom of expression, freedom of belief and freedom of association” have been violated by student guilds who have changed their anti-discrimination provisions.

In a letter to The Times, which cites guilds at Exeter, Birmingham and Edinburgh as examples, they condemn the practice as “intolerant and unlawful” and call upon all Christian unions currently suspended by student associations to be “reinstated with full rights as a student society forthwith”.

The letter has been signed by numerous church officials, including the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Carey of Clifton, and The Right Rev Crispian Hollis, Roman Catholic Bishop of Portsmouth and lead Bishop of Higher Education.

Other senior figures from groups such as the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship and the Christian Medical Fellowship have also added their signatures.

The war on Christmas and Christians November 22, 2006

While the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause forbids government from promoting religion, that same amendment’s Free Exercise Clause protects its open practice. The tension between these clauses is most evident during the “holiday season.” How government resolves that tension is often confused, contradictory and discriminatory. And while it may be the opposite in the Bible Belt, here on the coasts, perhaps motivated by sensitivity to minority faiths, the bias is often against Christians.

On May 20, 1998, Catholic League president William Donahue testified before the US Civil Rights Commission that in “Manhattan Beach, California, a public school removed a Christmas tree from school property after a rabbi objected that the tree was a religious symbol; however, the school allowed the display of a Star of David. … in Mahopac, New York, Boy Scout students were barred from selling holiday wreaths at a fundraiser, even though a wreath is a secular symbol; Hanukkah gifts, however, were allowed to be sold at the school’s own fundraiser.”

Yet government does not consistently regard Jewish symbols as secular. Donahue adds, “I confronted an attorney for New York City Schools Chancellor Rudy Crew regarding the practice of banning crèches in the schools while allowing menorahs. At first, she cited the 1989 County of Allegheny v. ACLU decision to buttress her case, but when I pointed out that that decision undermined her case– making the argument that the high court declared a menorah to be a religious symbol, not a secular one–she quickly retreated. Such ignorance strikes me as willful.”

Woman wins anti-Christian discrimination case November 17, 2006

SAVANNAH, Mo. – Three years after she was fired for refusing to work on Sundays, Connie Rehm has won back her job on the staff of this small town’s public library, and her employers have received a costly education in employment rights law.

No less a legal team than the same Florida attorneys who represented the parents of

Terri Schiavo

— the brain-damaged woman at the center of last year’s right-to-die case — took up Rehm’s cause, suing Rolling Hills Consolidated Library on a claim of religious discrimination.

A federal jury found in her favor after a three-day trial in May, and last month she was reinstated on a judge’s order to the staff assistant job she had held for 12 years before her religious practice and the library’s adoption of Sunday hours collided in 2003.

To Rehm, a 54-year-old former junior high school math teacher who still attends the Lutheran church where she and her husband were married 34 years ago, the outcome of her case is a victory for any employee whose conviction against laboring on the Sabbath is tested by workplace demands.

“A middle American, mild-mannered, small-town library person — I attribute to the Lord a great sense of humor for having picked me for this test,” Rehm mused in an interview at her home in rural Savannah, a northwest Missouri town of 4,900.

Though claims of religious discrimination are growing in number, they were only a tiny segment — just 3.1 percent — of the slightly more than 75,000 complaints filed last year with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The agency is a sort of legal gatekeeper, weeding out baseless claims and attempting to resolve those that seem to present genuine violations of the Civil Rights Act.

Rarer still are religious discrimination cases that wind up in a courtroom. When, as in Rehm’s case, the EEOC determines that a violation did occur, both sides typically prefer settlement to arguing their positions before an unpredictable jury.

This article mentioned that the Christian school receives no government funding. Given that the Ontario education minister has just announced that character education will be introduced in public schools, it is surprising that she does not see the value in funding faith-based schools which have been emphasizing character education and the obligations of good citizenship for decades already.

Perhaps the Ontario government sees a value in faith-based education after all, given that they already fully funds 93 per cent of faith-based schools in Ontario, attended by almost 600,000 children. Scandalously though, only Catholic schools are eligible and all other faith-based schools receive nothing.

British Airways allows Muslim headscarves, but not Christian symbols

British Airways has banned a Christian woman from wearing a cross on a necklace to work, a British newspaper reports.

The Daily Mail reports that Heathrow check-in worker Nadia Eweida, who is a Coptic Christian and whose father is Egyptian and mother English, was sent home after refusing to remove the crucifix that breached British Airways’ dress code.

The move has been criticized by Christian groups and Eweida’s member of parliament, Vince Cable.

The Mail says Eweida, who has an unblemished record during seven years at BA, is suing her employer for religious discrimination after being suspended from work without pay for two weeks.

While strongly refuting the figures provided by Burmese junta’s on the religious beliefs of the Burmese population, The National Democratic Party for Human Rights (NDPHR – exile) USA, pointed out that Muslim population in Burma is approximately 20 percent of the county’s total population, which amounts to 7 to 10 million people of the country.Meanwhile the State Peace & Development Council (SPDC), Burma in its population statistics report recorded that almost 90 percent of Burma’s population are Buddhist, 6 percent are Christians and 4 percent Muslims. NDPHR in its statement contradicted the Burma Government’s figures and said, “Unfortunately, this statistics is flawed and has grossly under estimated the non-Buddhist proportion of the population.”

“The report above therefore needs to be amended to better reflect the demography of the non-Buddhist population in Burma,” NDPHR urged.

Given below is the full text of the statement released by the Central Executive Committee of The National Democratic Party for Human Rights (NDPHR – exile) USA:

The National Democratic Party for Human Rights (NDPHR – exile) USA (HQ) welcomes the International Religious Freedom Report 2006 on Burma which was released on September 15, 2006 by the Bureau of Democracy, Human rights, and Labor of the US State Department. The report reveals pertinent information on various religious communities, (including the situation of democracy and human rights as practiced) in various countries of the world.

The statistics on the State Peace & Development Council (SPDC), Burma recorded that almost 90 percent of Burma’s population are Buddhist, 6 percent are Christians and 4 percent are Muslims. Unfortunately, this statistics is flawed and has grossly under estimated the non-Buddhist proportion of the population. For instance, the Muslim population in Burma is approximately 20 percent and accounts for 7 to 10 million people of the country. The report above therefore needs to be amended to better reflect the demography of the non-Buddhist population in Burma.

This week, in the wake of the media storm over Mel Gibson’s anti-Semitic comments during a drunk-driving arrest, one of the six major Hollywood studios will release a comedy starring self-described lefty Will Ferrell, called TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY. A satire of the NASCAR racing scene, the movie is a racist, bigoted work that ridicules the Bible Belt, Southern white men, Christianity, Jesus Christ, the family, and American masculinity.
