The fact that an anti-Christian and anti-creationist bias exists among faculty at public universities— especially in science departments— has been well-known and well-documented for many years now. A new video report by the Alliance Defending Freedom has shown just how far that anti-Christian bias has now crept into the thinking of everyday college students on campus. When asked if they would support a law which forces Muslims to participate in activities on a professional level that go against their faith, students universally said no; but when the same question was posed with Christians instead of Muslims, they were unwilling to extend Christians the same rights!1
Once bias creeps in against the foundation of Christianity (Genesis), it does not simply remain there. The whole Christian faith is built upon the truth claims of Genesis; once it becomes fashionable and acceptable to discriminate against those who believe the foundation of Christianity (as it has been for the past century!), it is hopelessly naive to think that by simply compromising in that one area, that the remainder of Christianity will escape persecution. In another stunning example, a Christian student at a secular university in Florida was suspended after he spoke up in class to defend the Bible from attacks by a Muslim professor!2 Of course, it would also be naive to think that this anti-Christian discrimination is only occurring in American universities; the phenomenon is global. For example, a UK university was documented last year expelling a Christian post-grad student because they made a Facebook post on their own private page which cited the Bible in disagreeing with homosexual behaviour.3
The interviews show striking evidence that a new generation of young people are about to leave college and enter the public sphere who have no respect for the religious rights of Christians (but will respect other beliefs like Islam). This is the essence of ‘political correctness’: it is a thinly-veiled euphemism for an anti-Christian double standard. The goal is to eradicate Christianity from the public sphere and relegate it to the fringes of society. Keep in mind that this same progression has played out elsewhere in the past: namely, the anti-Jewish bias that eventually progressed to full-fledged genocide in Hitler’s Germany. Unsettlingly, it was also a devotion to a kind of evolutionary, survival-of-the-fittest ideology that motivated the Nazi purges.
